Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends. I know I did. All of my favorite foods (including chocolate pie, yum) and my favorite people. I was a bit leery of going too far from home so close to the baby's due date, so my family was kind enough to bring Thanksgiving to me. We had all of the regular fixings. Some of my favorites are Chicken and Dumplings (Granny's specialty), Sweet Potato Souffle, Dressing (another of Granny's specialties), Chocolate Pie (I made those, but I shared this time), Mac and Cheese, and several more. The kids are a little wierd about eating things that aren't in the shape of a dinosaur, but they did manage to earn desert. Can't wait to eat it again this evening.

Today, I'm not only thankful for family to spend this holiday with, I'm also thankful that this pregnancy is winding down and I'll get to meet my last little baby soon. Today marks the beginning of my 39th week of pregnancy. I'm thankful that in spite of having only a few days left before the c-section, I'm still feeling good!

Another little side note, if you haven't been already, I HIGHLY suggest doing CWB on your shoots. I took the kids for Christmas card pic "Take Two" and I am tickled pink at the results! Ben was sooooo good. I definitely have one of him for the wall and one for the card (if I get one out...). Delia, the color is good, she is just at that hard age to photograph. She won't stand still for a minute. And if she is still, she won't look at me. :( I think I have one of her that is usable for the card. I'll try again at any rate. And waiting on baby for the third picture. Anyone seen any great three image Christmas cards this year? I usually make my own, but I think I'll be a little too busy this year. Still loving the D300s. Image quality is great.

You are so stinkin' cute and tiny!! I can't believe you are having your baby any day now!! Thanks for the info on the d300. I'm glad you told me it isn't a full frame ( I thought it was) I guess I will just have to save up for the d700 :O)

What a beautiful preggie you are! If I don't "talk" to you again before the big day, good luck! I know everything will go great!
