Figgy Pudding

Here's a table runner I finished up this past week. The fabric line is called "figgy pudding" and I just love all of the fabric. I already had a pattern and it made up quick and easy!

I added little holly berries to each corner.

Justin has finished one final and is currently in the middle of taking another. His first two (including the one he's taking now) are take home finals, which means he was emailed the final at 8 am and he has to hand it into the law school at 5 pm. That's a 9 hour final!! Doesn't sound like fun to me! He has one more on Thursday, but luckily it's in class so it's only 4 hours.

After his final I'm picking him up and we're driving straight to WY. Justin's brother Mark gets married on Friday in Rexburg to cute Ashley. We'll stay with his parents for a few days following before coming home to celebrate Christmas here.

I have ten weeks left of pregnancy (or around there). I can't complain because I feel great the whole time pretty much (I really feel bad admitting that because I know so many people who don't have it easy like me). Everything seems to be going well and baby is right on schedule. I'm enjoying as much sleep now as possible because I know those days are sadly coming to an end.

Molly is spunky as always. She plays a little game with Justin where he'll say, "I love you" and she'll say, "no, I love you!" and on and on they go with more emphasis each time. It's so cute. She's into carrying around puzzle pieces. We're not quite sure why, but she thinks it's great. She'll push them in her stroller, bring them to the store or anywhere else we go. She can tell you that there's a baby in my tummy, but I don't think she understands more than that. I'm a bit concerned that she'll be jealous of the baby and won't be too nice to her, but hopefully I will be pleasantly surprised?! Time will tell.

If you've had such an easy pregnancy maybe this baby will be super easy and give you lots of time for molly. She such a sweet girl.
