  1. Your lists always make me smile. You sound very blessed.

    We danced to “See What a Morning” yesterday during the church service, wearing white ruffle dresses and using silver and gold fabric billows (very pretty!) plus having a father/daughter dance for the 2nd verses about Mary and Jesus. It’s a great song!

  2. It won’t be long now…praying for patience (can imagine how easy it would be to feel anxious and just tired of waiting) for you and hoping for a great labor and delivery!
    Yay for the green-ness of spring! 😀

  3. Love your lists! I love how my brothers and Dad love spaghetti too; simple and easy yet yummy!

    It must be sooo cute to watch Cedar dance! 🙂

    Mmm, chocolate dipped strawberries and whipped cream!!

    Wow, a 35 minute labor? Amazing!!

    I hope that by next Monday, you’ll be holding your precious little one in your arms.
