It's December Currently

It's that time again!  I can not believe that it is December.  We are linking up with Oh' Boy Fourth Grade to share Currently.  I enjoy this linky so much.
Listening:
I am listening to my little man snore as he is napping next to me.  He has been fighting a terrible cold the past few days.  He is sleeping so good, but the "junk" in his nose and throat are gurgling.  Poor thing...
Loving:
My husband and I finally invested in a larger vehicle.  With a new baby on the way (in 19 weeks) we will need something to drive our 5, 3 and newborn children in.  We bought a black Ford Expedition.  Everyone keeps telling me how much gas I will be buying, but I have to have something larger.  It has third row seating and will be nice when baby #3 arrives.
Thinking:
Cyber Monday might be the day that I decide to order my Christmas cards online.  We typically get the "kids' photo on the front of the postcard" type of card.  I always enjoy recieving those from friends and family.  I just need to get it done.  It is on the top of my to-do list.  (tomorrow)
Wanting:
The light in the laundry room went out a few days ago.  I can not see anything in there.  absolutely NOTHING!!  I had to take a flashlight to look for a pair of pants yesterday.  I normally would change it, but it is a weird florescent type of bulb.  My husband says he will get it done tonight.  (hopefully)
Needing:
I stopped at Kohl's after church today to get a couple more tops.  This baby bump is more than a bump!!  I feel huge!!  I need to buy some more pants soon!!
Tradition:
My husband and I hide the pickle ornament on the tree each year.  The niece or nephew who finds it first on Christmas gets a dollar.  I know it isn't much, but they love it.  When our own children get older they will enjoy the fun too.

Time to end this post with a freebie.  I have been working on this Polar Express Graphic Organizer pack for a few days.  Enjoy.

  4. So funny, as I am reading your "listening to" I can hear my BIG man snoring like crazy on the couch! I guess he didn't get much sleep with me hacking and coughing all night! Congrats on the new baby on the way...that is such a blessing to be looking forward to! I also do the "hide the pickle" on the tree. My daughter (who is 13) thinks it is really funny that we still do it, but I can't bring myself to stop! Happy Holidays to you and yours!

  5. I love little kid snores, but I'm sorry to hear that he's under the weather. We have a pickle on our tree too, and we also have a chili pepper! Not sure where it came from, but it's fun! Enjoy your new car!

  8. I know exactly what you mean about needing larger clothes. I'm almost 19 weeks along & my wardrobe choices are getting smaller each week. Congrats on the new cars too - so exciting!
