<p>How are holiday preparations/celebrations going if you do any of that?</p>

<p>We did get a better idea.  I've had two u/s now and both are within one day of each other.  The "official" EDD is March 14.  I just say the month of March when people ask. :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We do some stuff for the holidays.  We put up out tree Thanksgiving night.  That was one of the traditions my DH brought to the family.  I wasn't feeling too well that night, so it was mostly DS and DH doing all the work.  I supervised. ;)  Some of the shopping is done, but we are huge about waiting until the last minute for shopping, so I still have a week to finish. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I wish I could decorate more, but we live with my grandmother and she just isn't big into decorating, period, much less decorating for the holidays.</p>

I enjoy holiday music, but I get so tired of it.  It seems to be playing everywhere as soon as Thanksgiving is over.  And some places will even play it before then.  I don't have a favorite CD, but my favorite type is the really old type like Good King Winceslas, The Holly and the Ivy, and such. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My favorite holiday cookie....hmmm....that's a toughie.  I like cookies, but I don't eat them all that often.  I try not to make them because that means that I'll eat them. LOL  My favorite is a store bought cookie, the White Fudge covered Oreo.  I don't really like Oreo cookies, but these are yummy!  And you can only get them during the holiday season. :(</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The spacing between children is such an interesting topic.  Part of me is glad that they are spaced so far apart, and part of me wishes they were closer together.  I think overall I am glad that there is so much space between them.  I do think that if we have a third I would like it to be closer to #2.  DS has been so excited about this pregnancy.  He started out a little unsure about it.  The night we told him that I was expecting he got very quiet and then looked at me.  "I think I might get a little jealous" followed by "Can I still sit in your lap?"  Since then he has just loved on my belly and his little brother.  We plan on having him at the birth.  He says he wants to be there.  It will be interesting to see just how helpful he'll be after the LO arrives.  I know he'll be a good gopher for me.  I've tried to talk with him about how much time the babe will take and he says he understands...we'll see.</p>

<p>What are some of your favorite family traditions (they don't need to be holiday-related)?</p>

<br><br><p>I've lived a few places.  Let's see.  I moved for college and went to Truman University in Kirksville, MO.  That didn't last one semester. LOL  Moved home and then got my own apartment.  Then I moved home before I got married to save a little money.  After marriage is when the moving really began.  DH was in his last year of law school so I moved to St. Paul, MN with him and lived there 9 months.  Then we moved to Rhode Island so I could go to school.  We didn't really fit in there.  That lasted 10 weeks LOL.  From there we moved to Nashville, TN.  We were there about 6 months.  Then DH's mother was declared terminal, so we moved back to his home town to help out the family.  We stayed there for another 6 months or so before moving to be closer to our jobs.  We lived there for about a year before DS was born and DH got a different job.  So then we moved to Columbia, MO where we stayed for about 18 months before moving back to my home town and in with my family.  After a year we moved back to his home town for about a year and now we are back with my family where we've been for about a year.</p>

<p>I'm really tired of moving!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Family traditions are kind of sparse in our family.  I don't know if it is from all the moving or what.  Even though DH and I have been married for 12 years we haven't really settled anywhere.  DH requires turkey on both Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I'd never had turkey until we got married, so I had to learn how to cook one (thank you Alton Brown).  Christmas tree goes up Thanksgiving night.  My family didn't/doesn't really have traditions, so most of the ones that we do have are his. </p>
