Wow! Where did the time go?

Wow! I am 33 weeks pregnant now and only 7 weeks to go at best!   Eeekk!!  It is starting to get more and more realistic to us between time, growing belly and the movement of the baby.  We have had family come and help work on some things at the house and have been given 2 showers by friends and family.

It is times like this you see and appreciate how wonderful and giving people can be.  The Lord has definitely blessed us.  We have had 4 and 5 people that are family or like family help us replace almost all of the windows on the main floor of the house (totaling 9).  We have just finished with the inside molding and are in the touch up process after caulking and such.  Super excited to see a finished wall after 2 years of exposed windows!!!!

Here is one after the molding.

It is hard to stand by and watch though, I am used to being right in there.  I think I am still able but no one seems to want me to do anything involving tools, especially power tools!  :)  So I am the "camp cook" during these adventures.  Cooking and cleaning for everyone for three meals a day, gave me a small glimpse into the life of my great-grandmother.  I say small because I didn't go to the garden and pick or put up any food, make any soap, gather eggs or work on any quilts.  She did these things and a lot more every day.  She also kept my mother and her brothers and sister.

So, I guess in a few weeks, I will get a little closer to her life when the baby comes!  Mama Wilson could work circles around me though.  She was an amazing woman and she is missed every day.  One day, I will tell you more about her and Papa Wilson.  But until then,
