Well, Christmas came early to our house last week. It all began when I got my email confirming that the pack-n-play had arrived at my local Walmart and I could go pick it up. Yippee! Nate likes that it monkeys, I just like that it's so cute. We had some leftover money from the baby shower, and were so excited we could get this.
The next day, the UPS man dropped off a VERY large box on the doorstep. I had no idea what it was and I couldn't handle the suspense! I finally mustered up some energy and dragged it just inside the door (so it wouldn't get stolen, cause who wouldn't want a big giant box?!), but it was on it's side and it was too heavy for me to turn, so I had to wait for Nate to come home to even see what it was. Much to my surprise...

A beautiful new rocker!! My dear parents were thinking of us. It's very comfy, has cushy arm rest, and a footrest; all neccessary things to make for the perfect rocker. It was such an exciting surprise for me, and Nate loves it when he gets to put stuff together. So all in all, it made for an awesome evening. Thank you, thank you padres!
While Nate enjoyed sleeping in with his long holiday weekend, I decorated for Christmas. I am usually in no hurry to do so, but was just downright bored. I don't really sleep all too well these days, and was just waiting for Nate to wake up so we could play.
It's mde it feel a little more like home, to have more stuff in the house with all the Christmas decor. And I do think it's pretty great to have a fireplace for the stockings. Besides, if the baby comes anytime soon, atleast the house will be ready for Christmas and guests. :)
Our week of presents was topped off with the ultimate present...a new tv
Nate has been doing extensive research on tv's since we've moved here, because having a bigger living room has made our tv seem very small. After a LOT of thinking and comparison shopping, we finally got one on a great after Thanksgiving day sale. Nate was SO happy. He kept calling it precious all night, and still gets giddy everytime he walks into the room and see's it. So there goes our Christmas! We also purchased a new dresser, but I don't have a picture because we had to order it and it won't come in until next week. But that's definitely our whole Christmas!! All the presents under our tree will be for other people. And they may not be very elaborate presents, because we got a new tv. ;)
We're happy for the Holiday season and expecially happy it's December, because the baby WILL arrive sometime this month! Here's to hoping the Dr apppointment tomorrow tell us it's sooner rather than later...but I'm not holding my breath.

Fancy, fancy all around! That babe would just about top everything off!

Sounds like you're doing well. But I think your summer vacation is over and it's time to come back now. (Just remind Nate that it's basketball season...)

Landry likes the pack n play. He is also very worried about mailing you the last piece to the bassinet. I told him I mailed it yesterday. He feels good about that.

Jenni said...

Now Landry is concerned about your baby gift. He has been looking at if for months now. I told him we will wait until the baby comes out of your tummy to give it to you. He is quite confused and told me you can't eat your baby.

I'm glad to hear you're not conforming to the system and waiting till some arbitrary "date" to celebrate Christmas. Way to fight the Man! (by which I mean Santa)
Also, that new TV looks awesome!

Stephen and i have had a love affair with our tv ever since we got it 2 years ago.

I can't wait for that baby to get here!

Rob said...

Haha, so you both got what you wanted. You, the dresser and Nate's tv. I'm so glad. That's so nice of your parents! You will LOVE that rocker! I spend most of my days in mine:)
Well, MERRY CHRISTMAS to you guys! Tell that baby to hurry up. I need pictures:)

Brad and Darci said...

Looks like you guys are all ready for that little guy to come! He better hurry!
Tell Nate congrats on the T.V. Brad is still in love with ours- I still want to cry every time I look at it:)
Really I am so glad things are going well and I am way excited.
We will have to plan a gettogether for whenever you will be coming home.

I can't wait to see pictures of little Fuller!!!
PS we have the same rocker and i love it. It makes the long nights a little nicer.

Megan said...

Merry Christmas to you guys! That stuff all looks great and I bet it feels nice to have everything in order before the baby comes too. I will send some good vibes your way that the baby comes soon. Though, hopefully my vibes aren't tainted. My history of going early is not a good one. And I can only imagine how excited Nate is about the TV. We did the same thing 2 years ago - we got a great deal on Black Friday and Ross was like a kid in a candy store about it for weeks afterwords ;)

Zack and Callie said...

Yay for new stuff! As I was thinking about diaper bags last night I thought, "What am I doing? I'm not a mom." It still feels pretend even when you're getting all the equipment. Love the tv too! Is your nose spreading yet? haha.
