So much to be thankful for!

Thanksgiving has come and gone...i can't believe it!

Josh's parents and sister came to Texas and it was a great time of relaxation and time with family! We seriously watched SO MANY MOVIES!! It was fabulous!

(I decided to list them because i too am curious as to exactly how many we actually watched!)
The Proposal
Couples Retreat
Big Mama's House 2 (randomly on tv)
Fool's Gold
New In Town
Star Trek (not my fave)
Angels and Demons (also not my fave - ha ha)
17 Again
The Santa Clause

i feel like i am leaving a few out...but can't recall them right now. SERIOUSLY!! We maxed and relaxed huh?? :) gotta love lazy holidays to stop and just rest!

On Thursday we went to Goldthwaite and spent the day with Josh's mom's family, and then Friday was the big Crosby family thanksgiving. Josh had the great idea to host this year at our church's facility, which used to be an old YMCA - and it was perfect! Over 100 Crosby's came in and hung out and played cards and games, they all sang and shared the mic (they are like all musicians!) ate yummy food (grandma's rolls - AHHH! BAKED SIN!) and we had the indoor pool, basketball courts, and 3 inflatables for the was a long day, but SUPER fun! Here is a pic of Jackson and his cousin Simon who spent the entire day on the inflatables jumping...needless to say they slept really good last night! What a great thanksgiving week! My christmas decor is already up, my christmas shopping is done, now we just wait for baby! Oh, and work on Christmas cards! :)

Quick pregnancy update: i had my 34 week checkup last Monday and got "checked" by my doctor since he were doing the lovely Group B strep test, and I am at a 1, and 75% effaced! I do realize this may not mean a darn thing and i could be this way for many weeks, but it was reality that baby is indeed prepping for it's grand entrance! :)

Also, my sis in law Rebekah and I were obsessed with doing all these old wives tales to figure out what we are having, (she too is expecting and is almost 10 weeks.) We knew that they aren't super accurate or anything, but all are saying BOY for me....ahhh! We shall see how valid those are soon enough. :)
Until next time....
