My mom couldn't believe that I hadn't posted the Thanksgiving pictures yet and it is 2 days after so here are a few. Sorry that some, a lot, of them were some how deleted but this is what was left.

Well I had my first doctors appointment. He did an ultrasound just to make sure that the baby's heart was beating. It was but I am NOT having twins. I tell you what, I marched into Costco and demanded my money back. After an hour long argument with the manager he finally refunded me for one of the tests. Good thing I kept the receipt.

Susan and Rick won the Peanut Butter Bar Give Away. I just read her blog and apparently she suspects our ploy of inviting ourselves over, she even made us dinner, but it is a little to late now for suspicions. As with any good scam you kind of realize it after the damage is done.

I am already in my maternity clothes. I look the same size as my niece who is 4 months farther along than I am. Is it farther or further? Anyway, I think I will breastfeed this kid until he is 2 in hopes of losing the weight of 2 pregnancies.

I didn't really go to Costco, to buy the tests or return them, I buy my tests at the dollar store... I really do; they are the best deal in town. The peanut butter bars weren't hi def. I may have been wearing maternity clothes even before I got pregnant.

Announcing the first annual peanut-butter bar giveaway!

You've heard the rumors. These are the best peanut-butter bars you could ever imagine. They're the real reason Oprah can't stay thin. Now is your chance to experience them for yourself. All you need to do is meet some simple qualifications and pass our little test below. One winner will be chosen.

  1. First, you must have hi-definition TV. And the bigger the TV set, the better.
  2. Second, you and your hi-def TV must be available for presentation of the grand prize this Saturday, November 22nd, from 4:00 pm through 7:30 pm. In case of overtime, it could last another hour or so.

Now for the little quiz:

1. I always cheer for:
A. The Cougars
C. The Lord's University
D. The current and back-to-back MWC champs, and the only MWC team with a NC

Note: If you can't answer this question correctly, you get 0 (zero) on the quiz portion. This doesn't automatically disqualify you, but it does put you at a disadvantage.

You may also submit a short essay, but keep in mind that my daughter will be grading the quiz and essays, so no big words.

Random fun things

Shrek, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were all having lunch together.
Shrek said, "I have always thought that I'm the strongest man in the world, but how can I be sure?"

Angelina Jolie agreed, "I'm told I'm the most gorgeous of them all, but sometimes I wonder."
Brad Pitt said, "I'm pretty sure I'm the sexiest man alive but I've never had it confirmed."
They all decided that the best way to find out if their beliefs were true was to ask the famed talking 'mirror, mirror on the wall' to confirm for them whether Shrek was the strongest, Angelina Jolie was the most gorgeous and Brad Pitt was the sexiest.
They agreed to meet again the next day for lunch to discuss their findings.
The next day Shrek walked up with a smile. 'Well, true. The mirror told me that I am the strongest man in the world.'
Brad Pitt lifted his sexy face and said with a smile "well it is true I am the sexiest man in the world...
Angelina Jolie lifted her sad, gorgeous face and said, . . .
Who the Heck is Amy Jean Adams???

I just got that joke in an email and thought it was kind of fun. You can see why it doesn't bother me that Rob thinks Angelina is so hot. I had to make it say Amy Jean Adams so people couldn't say that it was Amy Adams the actress.

I just got a wheat grinder yesterday. We ground up some wheat and made whole wheat muffins. I wasn't feeling up to making bread. That isn't a good sign. Usually the only time I am up to doing something like that is when something is new like the grinder. Still it was fun.
