Love the pic! Our yard is well covered - I'm hoping for even more snow this year, though I know DH isn't... he's the one who has to deal with shovelling and clearing the driveway, I just get to sit inside and look at the pretty white

Oh, and the kicks have been regular for a while. I look forward to the later evening when the baby gets moving around.
I can't imagine DD being a teenager. This year she turned 10... and double digits was hard enough to face!

Hiccup is really active from about 10pm to 11pm - and then whenever I wake in the night he's moving around too. He's big enough now that often at night I can watch him moving, my belly moving and rolling The other night I was laying on the couch trying to read and he kept thumping my book

Aww! Very cute!
Whenever Levi sees Hiccup's u/s pics (they're on the fridge so the kids can see them whenever they want) he says "that's the baby in your belly, mommy!" He doesn't seem overly enthused about my lap quickly disappearing though!

hate freezing rain... and sleet. Ew.

Linea nigra, yup, have gotten it with all my babies.

Sorry, no tricks that I've found. Apparently there are some oils (Vit E?) that can help, but no real trick to completely make them go away. I just call mine my battle scars and call it a day

AFM: Got almost all DH's stuff today with the kids. DS2 wants to get him something for his guitar but the music stores aren't open on Sundays. I have to go for an OB appt tomorrow morning so I'm going to finish that up tomorrow.
I realized that the kids should get something for Grandma and Grandpa. They'll be staying with us for Christmas Eve and Christmas (at least) and the kids will end up being upset if they don't have presents to give them. Not anything huge, but we'll get those sometime this week too.
