Peanut update

Today marks 20 weeks in my pregnancy. Tomorrow we have our next ultrasound and hopefully we'll be able to find out the gender of the baby. We have begun getting the nursery ready. We have painted the room blue and green. It still has some finishing touches to be done. We have also gone to register with my parents. We are expecting the arrival of the crib any day now. We are still in the market for the rest of the furniture. My students here are pretty excited about the baby; its pretty sweet of them. They get into hearing each week how big it has gotten.

We spent Thanksgiving this year with the Leopards. We experimented with driving out to MO. We broke it up by stopping to stay in Columbus with the Brown's. But on the way home we drove the entire way. It sounds like Nate wasn't a big fan of that arrangement :-) We had a nice time with his family. We got to play a lot with our nephew, Jonas. He is about 20 months at this point and a lot of fun. Man, does he love his Grandpa! It's so adorable! I would post the picture of me taken with him but its terrible so I won't :-)

We plan on heading to Massachusettes for Christmas day to see the Grossmans. We also get to see their new Vineyard house! Yup, they have achieved their dream of having a home on Martha's Vineyard. It is so exciting for them. I don't know if I could be prouder! We'll get to see the Matthews' there as well so lots of time with Andy and Leah as well. I'm really looking forward to it. Then for New Year's we'll be flying back to MO. I love this time of year.

I also have to take my qualifying exam again. Not super excited about that at all!

So lots of stuff going on right now. Stay tuned to see what we are having! :-)
