......and now we're home and in serious catch up mode.
On the 18th, my husband, myself and two other (fabulous) couples jumped aboard a very large plane and spent the next seven days and eight nights having the absolute time of our lives in Varadero, Cuba at a gorgeous resort.
I'm still completely exhausted but have settled back into stay-at-home-motherhood without a hitch.
And boy, did I miss my baby!
I'll get a full recap done soon but for now, check out the 17-week baby belly update below!
Buenas Noches mis amigos.....
Love you baby!

......and spent a total of only $47.
We definitely came home with a complete summer wardrobe for Denay plus a few pairs of jeans and an absolutely "dorable" (Miss D's word) Old Navy button down jacket for the fall (first collage, lower right corner) complete with embroidery and a funky patterned lining.. And the precious pink knit Mexx sweater dress beside it? Yeah, paid $1.50 and it's never been worn.
My SIL will be so proud to hear I even tried my hand at a little bartering and wasn't as terrible at it as I thought I would be.
I was very pleased to find out that the sale comes around again in October......by then we'll have a newbie and if that newbie happens to be a boy we'll be able to save a bundle by going used on a wardrobe full of blue!
Again I stand, full of thankfulness for God's everyday provisions!

I started my research immediately and after dinner we were shopping. We found the unit we wanted at Canadian Tire but wanted to check out a couple more stores before we bought. We ended up at London Drugs and found what we wanted on the very top shelf with no price (of course). After hunting down an employee who hoisted the huge box off the shelf and checked the price, we were delighted (and frankly I thought the guy was teasing me) to find out that it was on sale for $75 less than the Canadian Tire price!
Thank you LORD!
We came home with a Hoover WindTunnel that was rated very well on Consumer Reports.
Even though we in no way wanted to spend a few hundred more dollars right before our big trip, we are so grateful for the small provision of an unexpected sale that saved us a little bit of money during an expensive week!
I know it's common for things to come in threes......I'm holding out that the third might be the sale of our queen bed set or winning the lottery......

It was straight to Oma and Opa's for a nap after that.....for Denay only unfortunately.
When she finally woke up we dined on a feast of roasted whole chicken (filled to overflowing with stuffing of course), corn on the cob, herb and garlic mashed potatoes, gravy and homemade apple sauce and all topped off with yummy, yummy (best ever) Dutch Apple Pie (with french vanilla ice cream).
Here I am, 9:07 at night and I'm making myself hungry again :)
It was such a day full of joy and celebration and thanksgiving for the gift of Christ's ressurection.
What a good, gracious Father we serve!
