It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Here are some photos documenting some developments, including Linc, and Christmas activities that I have tried very hard to "wrap up" before I get TOO BIG! Living Water Church, where we believe we will stay, is sending out Christmas shoe boxes for children in war-torn countries (Samaritan's Purse), and I have to tell you that I love any excuse to shop for toys. It's the kid in me. Below is Wendy (very obediently) allowing me to pack and seal these boxes of goodies for other kids. Of course, when she saw the purple Barbie, she told me she's going to put "purple Barbie" in her letter to Santa. Note to self---get that purple Barbie before they sell out! Oh! James is taking Wendy with him to WalMart, so I just asked him to sneak that doll in the basket. Yay James!
The other night, I affixed Disney Princess nails to Wendy's fingertips, and she loved them! Until one fell off that is. Then she was all tears!

Behold...her first school portrait. I used sponge curlers that morning...Worked like a charm!
I assembled 17 of these for James' coworkers. Pillar candles with candies in festive tin buckets, tied up with ornaments. James will take them in after Thanksgiving. Again, I love any excuse to shop!
Wendy's picture with Santa from this week! 'Got out them curlers again. Couldn't help myself.

Yup, and I've wrapped all my Christmas gifts already too. HAD to! I'm almost too big to save it for later!

That's got to be the most adorable Santa pic I have ever seen. Wendy makes such a photogenic subject! Simply beautiful.

Your daughter is precious! I pray that you will have a quick and painless, safe delivery! Can't wait to see pics of your little man. I am sure he will be beautiful. You and James make the prettiest babies!! Merry Christmas to you guys!
