Just the Beginning...

Although I am not particularly looking forward to gaining, roughly, another 30 pounds (what woman would?!) my sister had mentioned to me that she would love to see pictures of the baby belly progression. Currently, I am three months along and there's really not much to show other than my rapidly expanding waist, so I am just starting with the picture acknowledging my love for the little plum.
(Which is, currently, how big he is!!! = O !! )
 <3 <3 <3
There will be many more to come! :)
(Pictures, that is... not babies!! haha)

Although it's been said many times, many ways...

Oh I just love Christmas time!!
Unfortunately, Jordan and I don't really have money to spend on a Christmas tree this year. (We're newly weds both going to school so I'm sure it's no surprise to anyone that we are poor! haha)

Well, I still wanted to do something that symbolized a tree for our Christmas celebration. My first thought was to find a random tree branch and have a Christmas Charlie-Brown style, with one ornament crowning (and weighing down) our delightfully-pathetic "tree", but I never found the winning branch so I continued to entertain two other options.

One was to do a one-dimensional paper tree. Decorated with real ornaments that would be held on by paperclips shaped as hooks. Simple enough.
The other was to try to attempt a 3-D tree.
I cut packing paper onto circles, made individual cones with each, and hung them by a string. (I obviously would have preferred the paper to be green instead of brown, but the only paper that was large enough for this project (that we owned) was packing paper and, unfortunately, it only comes in one shade. Oh well.)

The tree actually turned out really awesome at first; pretty symmetrical and definitely different :) But then I decided to add a chain and ornaments and it weighed down the paper unevenly. :( By the next day, gravity had taken its toll and my tree was very warped...
I decided, regardless, to take a picture to share with my dear family, friends, and anonymous readers :)

P.S. Don't JUDGE ME! :)

Daddy and Cradle!! :)

During Thanksgiving my parents surprised Jordan and I with a cradle and I thought I would post the monumental event of it's assembly! :)

What a cute daddy Jordan will be!
