As the Belly Grows...
While today was a particularly gloomy gray outside, I enjoyed an action packed day inside! :) Husband and I finished up the Christmas shopping (with the exception of items arriving via USPS) on Saturday. Today I finished wrapping everything in the shiny paper I purchased for 25 cents - yes that's right, I said 25 cents - a roll at Menard's after Christmas sale last year. Our tree looks MUCH better. :) The attic seems to have consumed the box holding our stockings and tree skirt. When I asked Dear Husband to find something in place of a tree skirt, he found a fabulous old painter's tarp with multiple paint colors dashed about.
His sense of decor could use some work! :) BUT now the tarp is covered with some mighty fine gifts - so no worries! Then I finished up the paper ornaments for the arched window at the front of our house above the tree. I can't wait until Husband comes home to hang them! :) I've also done exciting things - such as laundry and cleaning the kitchen. joy. :) Strangely enough I've really enjoyed cleaning etc. Eight weeks of bed rest will really make you appreciate ANY kind of work in a new way! :) That's right!!! I'm officially off bed rest. If Baby Sesame tries to make an appearance into the world now - no one is going to stop him or her! :) Yay.
