I didn't do a good job of taking pics while my mom and dad were here, but Clayton had sooooo much fun staying home with them on Monday and Tuesday. So much so that he is reaching for Nana and Papa instead of Mommy and Daddy! They took wagon rides, played with Clayton's new chalkboard, he took naps and rocked with Papa, got anything he wanted from Nana (including her yummy pancakes), and so on. Plus his second favorite dog dog Aunt Ellie was there. I know he is going to be sad when he comes home this evening and everyone is gone. We can't wait to see you guys for New Years and Aunt Anna and Uncle David! Thank you soooooo much for all your help around the house and with Clayton! We love you tons!

The ornaments came out and Clayton saw a ball, a ball that should be thrown on the floor. Oops!

We had a fantastic Thanksgiving this year in Galena! So much to be thankful for. We got to spend time with Clayton's great grandparents, grandparents, super Aunt and Uncle, second cousins and of course Aunt Anna and Aunt Ellie! Clayton loves Nana and Papas new house. There is so much to get into, like spices and Tupperware! Clayton even got to try out the whirlpool tub. (He was not a fan of the jets going) My mom had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for us as usual. Dad, started up the fireplace which was a great treat. Anna and I just feel like Galena was and always will be our home! Yes mom, we know, we all need to move North!! :) Love you guys tons and thank you for making the holidays so special!
We have a fun weekend planned, getting our Christmas tree, going to Kate's 1st birthday party and finishing our Christmas decorating. I can't get over that I am 23 weeks today! Our little one is very active! I love feeling little buckeye. Clayton now comes over and pulls my shirt up to give the baby a kiss and hug! Sooooo cute! I guess I should mention he also pokes at the baby, much more the reaction we would expect! :) Hope you all have a great weekend!
P.S. I added some more pics to the Thanksgiving slide show today!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
P.S. Clayton wanted me to mention that he is proud of his Papa who got a 8-point buck this weekend!!!!! Clayton can't wait to hunt with Great Grandpa, Nana and Papa.

It is incredible that I am already halfway through my pregnancy! Time flies. I know some people think I am crazy, but I do love being pregnant. I love that I can now feel our little one squirming around in my belly. No, I am not going to tell you the sex of the baby! :) Justin, Clayton, Keely and I are the only ones that know. Keely tells me she could be bribed with bones and Clayton says he wants cash if you want to know.
We had a nice relaxing weekend at home and have another weekend at home next week. We were excited to see Stephanie and Craig on their way through for a wedding. Keely got to go to a dog park on Saturday. There is this awesome place out in the country that has a huge piece of land including a pond that is fenced in. There was another Weim there and Keely had sooooo much fun running around. We even got close to getting her to go in the water, but she just went up to her chest and then decided that was enough. We are going to take her again next weekend if the weather permits. I will try to get some pics.
Well, everyone have a great week!
Do I look like trouble?

It is hard to believe that three years ago this week Justin and I got married here! It was such a wonderful day!! I have always loved the fall, but having our anniversary during this season makes it even more special. I know I have said this before, but I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband! Justin treated me to a wonderful dinner on Wednesday night and Clayton got to spend time with his St. Louis Grandma, Dianne!
So I have heckled some of my friends who blog about having times that they don’t post anything for awhile. Also known as blog slacking. This seems to be a sign that someone is prego. Well, of course I have been trying to be consistent with my blog in order not to get called out, because I AM PREGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep, we kept it a secret for quite awhile and now I am in my 16th week. We are so excited to be adding to our family. I am due April 2. (Do you like how I just slipped this into the post:) I haven’t even been able to talk to everyone, so I thought I would get it out on the blog. Clayton is excited to be a big brother, ok, he has no idea, but I am sure he will be excited. Keely on the other hand has been sleeping more and is already pouting about another addition to the family. :) I am feeling a ton better now that I am out of the first trimester, and can't wait to start feeling the kicks! Hope everyone has a great end to the weekend!
