Very Welcome Visitors

Our Home Teachers came to visit last night and they brought us a big bag of clementines! How did they know that I crave clementines all day long? And, there is something very Christmas about oranges isn't there? Maybe because they remind me of the movie Little Women, which I think of as a Christmas time story.

Anyway, our Home Teachers were truly inspired because they also brought me a Pregnancy Body Pillow!!!!!! I slept like a dream last night. I don't know how I ever survived without one. In fact, I think I'll sleep with one even when I'm not pregnant. And, I'm going to get one for my Mother for Christmas - she has a serious pillow problem. She will take a pillow from you even if it's the only one you have and she has three. I kid you not. She would steal a pillow from a defenseless child if it meant that she would be more comfortable. She doesn't read this blog, so I don't worry about revealing this to you - she'll never know I told you.

As for other good news...I turned in my thesis today! I am done! Is it brilliant? Certainly not, but I couldn't care less. And, I am going to celebrate by making a tree skirt out of an adorable fabric with red polka dots and a green binding. I'll show you when I'm finished.

I wish a very happy day to all of you.

Wow! I want your missionaries! How thoughtful of them.
I can't believe I am on my third pregnancy and I don't have one of those pillows. I know I would love the comfort.
