35 days left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and great Holidays if you don't celebrate Christmas.

Today I had a Doctors appointment and it hit both my husband and I that we have 35 days left. Yes, 35 days.  It's so odd, once you are 35 weeks, you can count the weeks on your hand. Anyways, here is a picture.

So, his/her hearing is fully developed and this little one has moved lower.  Which means that I'm getting uncomfortable, but hey...all pregnant women are suppose to be uncomfortable at the time.  With their being a month left, I'm super excited, but also super nervous.

Funnies from facebook.

Every once in a while well searching my facebook newsfeed. So I figure in case you haven't seen them...why not share.

Where are you Christmas????

I love Christmas time. More or less, I love what leads up to Christmas. No, not Thanksgiving, but Advent. I know, not everyone believes what I believe, but sometimes I wonder where did Christmas go?  Lately, all I see are add on TV about getting the most expensive and greatest new toy on the market. People line up on Thanksgiving day to go Black Friday Shopping and it is all about the deals, deals, deals.

What happened to Christmas cookies? What happened to decorating the trees? What happened to singing Christmas Carols? What happened to spending time with your family?

I feel like little CindyLou Who from Dr. Seuss's  How the Grinch stole Christmas,  I really wonder where Christmas went? I don't know, maybe I'm just being reflective and crabby. What do you all think?

On a  different topic, what about the animals? People, please don't give a dog or a cat as a gift only to have given it up by Easter time. When you adopt a pet into your  family, they are yours to keep in my mind until the day that they die. And please, please bring them inside where it is warm and not sub-zero outside.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,
  I haven't sent you a letter in a long time, but figure why not now? There are only a few things I want for Christmas, besides everything listed in this song.

I want the school shootings to stop. I don't understand why they happen. I feel bad for the families of the victims, but I also feel bad for the family of the suspects. Of the shooters, because they suffer a heart ache too. I think, maybe, there is a solution somewhere out there, and with you being Santa, you can help find it.  You are suppose to represent good old Saint Nick, a patron saint of children, whose feast day is December 6th.  You also represent magic, and belief in all things good. With this special time of year, Jesus's birthday coming up, I wish (even though I would like these items) not for baby items, camera, sewing machines, and such, but for their to truly be peace.

32 and 33 week update

Hi all,
 So are you ready for the 32 and 33 week update? I know I am.

 So we will start with size. This little one is growing and fast. His/her bones are hardening, he/she is developing fat and the lungs and brain are started to get 100% developed. (YAY) and yes, in the second picture I have on a maternity shirt.

Baby is still head down, and very active, he/she keeps me up all night.  I don't really have much to add, but that we do need to clean things up and set up the nursery. I will post pictures as soon as that happens :)

Organizing my Pinterest.

I have decided to tackle the task of organizing my pinterest. Why...I never realized how messy it is, plus I noticed some of the pins do not lead to what they say the do. Therefore, I must organize it. :)

I don't know about you, but I like applesauce. Of course nothing can beat homemade apple sauce. I made this over Thanksgiving and meant to make a post about it. I guess it's always better late than never.

Earlier this year, I made my first batch of homemade apple sauce following a recipe from The Pioneer Woman.  After that, I began experimenting with my own recipe, using hers as a base.

So to start....I gathered my apples. I use about 8 of them and I don't use just one kind. I find that mixing a sweet apple (like a gala) with a sour apple, makes an applesauce that I enjoy best.

I then peel the apples and cut them up into small pieces. I like to get as much apple meat as possible, and I also like to leave just the tiniest bit of skin on the apples for a bite. I throw all my apples into a pot on the stove.

Then, I add some flavor. I know a lot of people use a lemon, but me I find it is sweeter to use orange juice. So my apple sauce isn't too sweet, I squeeze half of the juice from a lemon and half of the juice from an orange. I also use 1/2 cup of apple cider and 1/4 cup of water for my liquid base. 

 Next I add 1 tablespoon of cinnamon (yum) , 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 4 tablespoons of white sugar. Why...I like how it all tastes.

I put it on the stove, and let it come to a boil.It makes the house smell great!

After the juices all blend together, and the apples are soft and tender, I take it off of heat. I then use a food processor and blend it all together.

And the last thing I do is enjoy it!
