If you'd like to try it out here is how:
-Prep: buy 2-3 foam cones in different sizes, 5-6 pieces of scrapbook paper cut 1" wide/2" long, silver pins, bows/etc for the top of the tree
-Start with the base of the cone. Take one strip of paper folding it in half-pinning the top of the paper (where the two ends meet) to the cone. Repeat in rows until you get all the way to the top (alternating the different kinds/colors of paper).
-When you get to the top you can add ribbon, star, bow, whatever you want as your tree topper.
-Vwalla! You're finished! Super easy just like I said!

After work I went to pick him up and I wasn't sure if that was even my dog! Poor Romeo looks like a rat with really long skinny legs and huge ears. I literally stared and laughed at him for about a half hour after I brought him home. We made him ugly but I still love him :) He has so little hair now that he shivers in our house so I had to buy him a doggy sweater. lol, if you ever meet Romeo I promise he is the cutest dog you'll ever see when his hair is longer! Here is the after pic:

We waited until my 12-week appointment to tell anyone, to make sure the baby was healthy and everything was rolling smoothly. Once we got the thumbs up we let the secret out. It was really exciting and I think most everyone was completely shocked. My side of the family was probably the most suprised, probably because i'm the oldest kid, no grandkids or great grandkids yet so it's the first!
Our 12-week appoint was fun. We got to hear the baby's heartbeat and it was a little surreal. I almost didn't feel pregnant until that day because I didn't feel different and I certainly wasn't showing yet...but once I heard the little heart beat it all became reality. So yeah, that leads me to the topic of pregnancy. I have been totally lucky, no sickness or anything! I was only a tiny bit nausiated for a few weeks, but i've never thrown up or anthing. The only difference is i've been a lot more hungry. I don't really crave anything crazy, just random stuff like waffles. Mostly, its just that certain things aren't good to me anymore....like cereal. Anyways, thats the update! 13 weeks down.....27ish to go!
