Here we are at about 6 months and the pounds keep coming!!! Peyton and I are both doing GREAT!!! He is moving a ton and it is so fun to feel and watch him move! I think one of my favorite parts about being pregnant is watching Jake through this whole experience. He is going to be such a great and loving dad!! His eyes light up every time he feels or sees his son move. I am so blessed to have him by my side and I can't imagine what I would do without him. My Jakey is such a wonderful supporter! I love you babe!

We spent Christmas with my family this year. We had a nice Christmas Eve dinner and spent the night. Our beautiful morning faces above are of us opening our presents! Are we best friends or what!? We got the same CD for each other! On Christmas Day we spent a couple hours with some of the Root's and exchanged presents before we headed to McCall with my family. It was nice to get out of town and really good to see that McCall finally had snow!Everyone (Jake, my parents, and my brothers) went skiing and snowboarding the day after Christmas. No worries, there was fresh powder and blue skies!!! I spent the day in the lodge reading! It was really weird not being out there with everyone, especially my best board buddy (Jake of course)! For any other reason I would've been sad, but I'll do anything for this little guy that's growing in my oven (we'll both be on the hill soon enough)! Plus it was actually really relaxing too! We had a wonderful Christmas and are so blessed to live so close to both of our families.

Yes, I know we both look stunning in our beautiful sweaters! Well, we had two occasions to wear these beauties; Jake's work party and we threw a last minute "Ugly Sweater Christmas Party" for all the high school friends and their spouses! It was really fun and funny to see what came out of the closet! We got ours at the DI, both in the lady's section! I felt like I had football pads on because the shoulder pads were HUGE!!
