We headed over to Pagosa for Thanksgiving. I only have pictures of the dinner because everything else they did I of course stayed on the couch. I can't believe we were able to eat outside. I know it was supposed to be our year to go to Arizona for Thanksgiving where we usually eat outside, but in Colorado! Not normal!! The kids had lots of fun. They all headed out early Thanksgiving morning for the Turkey Bowl. The guys even let Cooper and Trip and my nephew Jayton play. They had a blast trying to grab people's flag. Then after dinner Cooper and Trip went with Tyrel, his brother's, and cousins to play basketball. Everytime they got back from doing something they would ask me " did you move from that couch at all? Or did you stay there the whole time?" Hey I had to eat and use the restroom, so I did get up some!! Then the next day the little kids went to the park and then later that day the big boys shot clay pigeons. Then we headed home. It was great and I was thankful to Loretta and Kristin for doing dinner.

So I have made it through 3 weeks of bedrest!! Yeah!! The first two weeks was hard to stay down with my kids and I was having a real hard time keeping my contractions under control and they were getting harder and harder and more frequent. So last week my sweet mother-in-law came and took Trip and Peyton to her house for a week. Last week was so nice to rest and my body feels so much better. I am still have contractions but they aren't as hard and and less often. I am so grateful for everyone help. Between the ward bringing me dinner, friends and my mother-in-law taking the kids I am getting closer to being in the safe zone. I had an appt today and things went well. She said she is pretty sure I am not dialted, but his head was kind of pushing back so she was trying to be very careful and the cervics is soft. So she told me to continue to be super careful and off my feet. So only 2 more weeks until I am 36 weeks. Thankfully Tyrel has wed-sun off, so I just had to last today and tomorrow without him. This week should be easy to get through! I am so grateful and humble for everyone's help. I have hardly had to ask for help. Everyone calls me to offer help before I even have to ask. I truly think without everyone's help I would have been in the hospital, this has definately been the hardest baby to keep in. Even though Trip was longer bedrest, I really feel my body was starting to go into labor more than Trip. I am grateful to ward families and family.
