This and That: One More Post Before the End of the Year.

I'm nineteen weeks along now--just about halfway!  I've started to feel our little one move, which makes it seem a little more real.  I'll have to post a picture one of these days, since I'm starting to show.

We have enjoyed time with all the family, including out-of-town siblings, over the course of the holidays in November and December.  Our families on both sides are expanding noticeably, with marriage and babies.  It's a very exciting season, even if busy and a time of figuring out how to flex with it all (I have a feeling that's always part of life though... :-)  We even managed to pull off whole-family photos!

We had a chance to go shooting together, for the first time!



I tried making homemade sauerkraut.  It turned out well!  Here it is fermenting on the counter, next to my sourdough starter.  I'm not sure exactly how I ended up with things growing (on purpose!) in the kitchen...


Our wedding orchids are blooming again--all three plants!


Crandon has had some chances to fly his RC plane, a fun activity, especially with other RC enthusiasts!



We celebrated Mom's birthday with yummy food.



And today I got our first diapers in the mail!  I'm looking forward to using cloth, with all the modern fabrics.  I'm also hoping to make a few to add to my stash before our baby arrives.  I'm trying for gender-nuetral colors and patterns.
