Operation Paci began on Sunday. I don't want to pull a George Bush and say mission accomplished to early, but he is doing great! On Sunday night I cut the paci's so that he could still hold them because that is what he likes to do! He put one in his mouth, said "uh oh"! I said it was broke and he started to cry, he was devastated. I felt like such a horrible mom. He was upset for about a half hour. When it was time for bed, he went down holding a couple and did fine sleeping. The next night he realized they were still broke but didn't get upset and went to bed again with them. The last two nights, he hasn't even asked for them and he hasn't seen one in days! The whole process was much easier then I thought it would be!!!

My two favorite book genres are Biographies & True Crime. I asked for the book One Promise Kept for Christmas and will hopefully finish that book during Peter's nap today.
Here are 5 true crime books that I would recommend in no particular order.
1. Finding Amy by: Deputy Chief Joseph K. Loughin & Kate Clark Flora
...... a must read if you're from the state of Maine!
2. Bitter Blood by: Jerry Bledsoe
...... a bitter divorce and a crazy ex wife.
3. Finding Laci by: Sharon Rocha
.......part biography, part true crime, heartbreaking.
4. Almost Paradise: The East Hampton Murder of Ted Ammon by: Kieren Crowley
.......another divorce story (so many true crime involve divorce!)
5. And Never Let Her Go by: Ann Rule
.... I have read almost all of Ann Rule's books. If you love true crime, she is a must read!

While reading another blog, I noticed that she did book reviews on the books she read. Why didn't I think of that!!! I loved the idea and will start doing it here. Stay tuned for my first one this week!!!

Opening his Cabela's adventure truck & trailer....he loves it!
After we opened gifts and had our cinnamon rolls that we have cooked every Christmas for breakfast since we have lived here, we headed over to the Wescott's. We do Christmas with my family the week before, it's so nice to not run around on Christmas Day!!! Joe's parents came over and we all opened presents and enjoyed the morning together. I got a new printer and a book I wanted, Pete got stuff to go with his new smoker and Buna got spoiled with lots of gifts! We then took him home to take a nap and Pete and I got to relax for a while.
Jenny, 24 weeks and I'm at 30 weeks! After his nap, we went over to see Pam's side of the family, the Berniers. They live in our neighborhood so it took us all of one minute to drive from our house to theirs! Pam's brother Randy, who lives in NC and we haven't seen in over two years was there with his wife and son Seth. There were three boys under the age of 5 running all around. It was a great visit!
Using the easel that his Aunt Jenny & Uncle Craig got him. This will be the last photo of him that you see a paci in his mouth. Today we say goodbye to them... wish us luck! We had a wonderful and enjoyable Christmas!! Hope you all had the same:)

Wow, a week ago today Pete started the basement! He has worked hard all day every day this week (except for turkey day)! I didn't realize how much he would get done! He has done a lot of it by himself, which impresses me even more. He did get help with the wiring and heating, and we are thankful for that! I can't wait to more the daycare down there!
all the heating & wiring is installed also!
The entryway where there will be a bench for kids to sit and remove their shoes.
Looking into the room, love how Pete made the half wall.. After work this week, he'll mud the walls so that we can paint it next. After we paint the walls, all we'll have to install is the flooring, trimwork & the ceiling. We are going to have hardwood pop & lock on half the floor and carpet on the rest.
all sheetrocked....to the left will be shelves & storage!

Watching Daddy get the turkey out of the brine bucket....
We left my Mom's and swung by the Wescott house where Pam was hosting members of her side of the family. We enjoyed some pie and Peter got to play with his 2nd cousins, Adam & Emma. It was a great Thanksgiving!!
