Nothing New but Bizarre Dreams

Nothing too exciting going on at the Bennett house! We never made Valentine cookies because Mom had a very tired week that week. I got the BEST gift ever from Mark for V-day: an absolutely fabulous pregnancy pillow! I'm only 16 weeks, but it has made my night's much more comfortable. It is so much better than the regular body pillows I used with the last 2 pregnancies. I've even used it in the evenings occasionally when I am lounging on the couch. It is a little spendy, but so worth the money for my comfort. Here's the link (this is for you, Ana):

So, I've been having the most bizarre dreams the last few nights. It started with a very vivid dream of giving birth to a boy. Thing was, I didn't know the other people in my dream, like Mark wasn't there-it was a different husband, and the doctor was also a stranger. But, it was definitely a boy as he peed on me! Then 2 nights ago, I dreamed we left the kiddos home alone while I was in labor and I couldn't get anyone to pick them up for us. They were OK though, they watched a movie while we were gone. Last night I dreamed there were monsters after us. We hid in our attic space for a few days while they were looking for us and woke up when they found us. There were lots of shorter, yet vivid, nonsense dreams in between too.

The two most common questions about this pregnancy: Are you finding out the gender and are you trying for a boy? The answers are "no" and "NO!" I find the second question to be insulting, maybe it's because SO MANY people at work have asked me that one.

Olivia and Anika can't wait to go camping. Olivia talks about it everyday. She wants to go NOW and does not care if there is snow on the ground. I love her enthusiasum! They are going to have a "campout" at Grandpa's this weekend so hopefully that will satisfy the camping blues for a few weeks anyway. I, too, am looking forward to camping this year. We will have our first trip in May. We will probably go again in June and that will be it for me! Here is a picture of the entrance to our favorite campground, Baumgartner, taken on our last camping trip last fall.


The campground hosts, Greg and his wife, Linda, are great people. Since we went about everyother weekend last summer, we got to be friendly with them. Linda would bring the kiddos little goodies like Smokey the Bear kits, necklaces and stuffed bears. They tell great stories and they take great care of the campground. Mark and I are thankful for the memories that are made on our camping adventures. I believe my kiddos are as well, they just don't know it yet. I know they will look back on day and have happy thoughts of their young camping days when they were sitting next to the fire drinking Grandpa's hot cocoa, waiting to eat his sourdough pancakes.

Let the countdown begin!

So I've Been Tagged

Soooo.............Day 1 of my Blog and I've been tagged! Hmmmmm..........

Here's how it works: "Each player of this game starts with '6 Weird Things about You'. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly.

Ummmm, I don't know 6 other people to tag, but I will give you 6 weird things about me:

1. I love to eat peanut butter straight out of the jar (I never double dip).
2. My second toe is longer than my big toe. I personally don't think this is THAT weird, but Mark sure thinks it is strange. I am betting this is a Twilegar trait!
3. Because my second toe is longer than my first, I can pick up all kinds of things with my 1st and 2nd toes!
4. When I was a kid, I could burp REALLY loud. When I would answer the phone and get those automated surveys (you know, they ask a question and wait for you to respond) I would burp loud and long for my answer while trying not to laugh. Ask my Dad!
5. I crave pickles smothered in cream cheese when I am pregnant, well, 2 out of 3 times anyway.

Check back later for #6. I have to think of something.

My First Blog

Here it goes, my first blog! Cindy and Ana Christine make it look so fun! I chose for my web address because 'pregnantlady' and 'bunintheoven' were already taken! Ha Ha!

I think we are all on our way to being over this horrible cold we've had for nearly a month now (all except Mark, that is). And now that I am into my second trimester I am not feeling so pukey and exhausted 24/7! And Spring is right around the corner! Things couldn't be looking better right now!

The girls and I will be making Valentine's Day goodies today or tomorrow. I love making big, fat heart-shaped cut out cookies with lots of delicious frosting. Then we will deliver to our favorite Valentine's!
