I hope your Thanksgiving was as blessed as ours. Sean, Allie and I enjoyed our morning and afternoon relaxing and being together. We took care of the Yorkies we are pet sitting for. Then it was back here to make homemade pumpkin pies from our uncarved Halloween pumpkin, gravy, the turkey (Senor Tomas), Red Lobster cheese biscuits and stuffing. The family came over around 3, armed with more food. We had such a great time here. There were 9 of us. Everyone left around 7:30. It was just a really good Thanksgiving!

Side note: Not a wise idea to run the self- clean option on the oven while trying to sleep. Sean set it for 1 or 2 this morning and the smell was herrendous for about 2 or 3 hours and it still stinks in here. It woke me up and kept me up most of the night. It did not seem to bother Sean's sniffer, so it must be my preggo sense of smell. It was awful, but the oven is clean!

I am four months along, as of yesterday. People are starting to touch the belly, without asking and just grabbing for it, but it has been family so that is fine! I will have to put my foot down if it becomes strangers that grab for the bump!

Off to work.

When my sister was pregnant and totally strangers asked if they could touch her belly, she started saying "Can I touch yours?" It's like people forget that it is your body, even if for the time being it's a baby-holder :)

Yah, it's a little strange, especially since people aren't even asking permission first, but like I said it is just family so far!
