28 weeks and some Christmas Cheer

This past Thursday I reached my 28th week of pregnancy and tomorrow is 29 which means I am almost only 10 short weeks away from meeting this little one and I am officially in the 3rd trimester. Yay! I had an ultrasound this week at my appointment and the baby is in what is called "frank breech presentation". The visual they gave me helped me to understand why I am running to the bathroom more times than I can count every hour! See for yourself:

My midwife says there is still time for the baby to turn into correct position and I am just hoping and praying that happens. She says it isn't a huge concern until we reach @ 37 weeks so my fingers are crossed! 

Here's the ole' 28 week pictures:

First, with Kennedy and then after church Sun. It was so icy outside we opted for an indoor pic.

Last weekend Chelsea was in to visit and we mostly planned to just hang out and soak up each others company but we also had my annual "bake off" planned for Saturday and we definitely got our bake on!

First up...sugar cookies.
I helped Kennedy cut the cookies out and Chelsea helped her decorate them while I started on our other items. For those of you who don't know - perfectionism is OUT the window when it comes to decorating sugar cookies with a toddler. See for yourself:

You did an amazing job Chelsea! Look at those finished products!
Kennedy approved after a taste test. =)
Sadly I don't have pictures of the rest of what we made but we made two batches of wintry white clusters (delicious and oh so easy), 8 round cake pans of Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls, a batch of Like Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, and a few days later I finished of my holiday baking with 5 loaves of pumpkin bread. Yum!

Despite all our baking, Chelsea and I were able to get out and finish up some much needed shopping and grab a bite to eat at one of my new favorite local places - Smashburger. We were sad when she left to go home but luckily we knew we'd see her again soon. As in...this coming weekend soon. =) More on that to come but thanks for braving the poor driving weather to come see us Chels!
We had fun giving out all of our baked goodies to loved ones this week. Abby and Jonathan were one of the recipients of the yummy cinnamon rolls and they brought a present for Kennedy over when they stopped by.
 Oh my - lets just say she's a happy girl. I had to convince her to leave Cinderella at home because we'd have so much to bring back already. She loves her. Thanks Aunt Abby and Uncle Jonathan! Wonderful selection!
 One of our last deliveries was to our local fire department. My Mom always did this with us when I was little and I always thought it was really cool so I definitely want to carry on this tradition with her. The firemen are so good with kids - they put her up in the truck, let her see the lights and gave her a little fireman hat. They were happy about their pumpkin bread too.

Just for giggles I wanted to stroll down memory lane a tad - look how big my girl is getting. This is our firehouse outing from last Christmas:

We have officially started our Christmas vacation now. We drove to WV last night to be with Tim's parents. Kennedy is in hog heaven. I don't think she's stopped talking to Nana and Pawpaw since we arrived. Whew - she will wear you out but it's precious and I don't think they mind at all thank heavens.

I'm sure I'll have more holiday pics to share soon! Until then, I hope you are all gearing up for a wonderful holiday with loved ones!
