So I have a ton of baking to do but I'm taking a break to do a post.
Anyone else feel like Christmas snuck up on you this year?

Not really many pictures from our weekend because we didn't do much, so I included a bump update as's a growin'!

I felt the need to go out and buy a few new things for the baby. 
  (eventhough it's a boy and we probably have most everything we need!)
Couldn't resist these mushrooms:
 date-night-in complete with a Costco u-bake pizza and eggnog rice pudding:
(we sure know how to party it up on a Friday night)
 Chris knew I wanted to modernize some pinecones
so he dipped them for me while I was out running errands with my mom:
(isn't he sweet?)
 Chris' parents came over on Sunday for a bit to play with B 
while we finished up DIY gifts, baked, and wrapped. 
Bennett especially had fun knocking down towers with his papa:
And that's that for our weekend...told ya it wasn't very exciting.
. . .

Since my bump was pretty much non existent the last time you all saw it, I thought I'd show it off a bit. 
This little dude is growing quickly!

 (I gave up on the chalk paint pens on week's a little harder to read but takes much less effort to erase.) 
(And yes, that's a mango...don't judge.)

Okay back to baking!
Happy Tuesday (almost wednesday)!

POST EDIT: Chris just pointed out that we took two different week 17 pictures...oops!
No wonder I've been so confused on what week it is...blame it on the baby brain.

    That tower does look pretty fun to knock down.

    LOVE those sweet pjs! And even though there are two week 17s your bump seems so much bigger in the 2nd one! Growth spurt for the little one. :)
