Happy Holidays!

Tomorrow we are off to someplace warm to visit my family for the holidays. Which is fantastic because labwork is going not-well, and I need a break like nothing else.

I am excited to start enjoying the Christmas season with my daughter before it's too late and the Christmas trees are laying dejected out on the curb, stray bits of tinsel flapping in the breeze. I am excited for my family to see the Bean, how much she has changed and grown in the past few months, to see her emerging personality.

But I am excited too for Grandma Babysitter. To go out on a date with my husband. With no family in town, it is rare indeed for Husband and I to go out alone together. It has happened exactly three times in the last 7 months and 29 days. So that will be nice too.

Take care and be well! I'll be posting sporadically for the next 10 days or so, but I'll be back in the new year!

That Bean in her candy-striped outfit is just about the cutest thing I've ever seen.

Have a wondeful holiday break!!!

Bean is too cute!! If I wasn't a vegetarian I'd say that I could eat her up!

I'm also looking forward to showing the grandparents their grand-bump in my belly - I can hardly wait to share these times with the wee one once he/she is born!

Happy holidays!!
