    Laurie, what a cute kid!

    Susan - I wasn't very sick with either of my boys. I had a few bad moments with each, but for the most part I wasn't very sick or even very tired. So, I echo the sentiments that even if you start feeling better, try not to stress about it.

    Well, it's official. Our house is for sale! Our house looks better than it ever has (too bad now we're getting ready to move - I'm now appreciating just how cute our house can be when it's spotlessly clean), we signed all of the paperwork, our realtor took pictures and put a sign out front. Now I'm just waiting to see the listing show up on their website. I keep checking. LOL So, everybody wish us luck selling the house quickly and keeping it spotless in the meantime. Fingers crossed!

    I have low progesterone so I have never gotten very sick while pregnant. I can agree it is comforting to feel that assurance that everything is ok.

    Alissa - Congrats on having the house up for sale!

    So I made a Pinterest craft with my girls last night. I started around 6pm and finished at 4am (Long after the girls went to bed). I am so disappointed in how they turned out. What we did is separate all the girls old crayons into like colors, remove the wrappers, chop them up and put them into tins. I then melted them and poured them into small glass canning jars with a string in the middle for candles. I think they would have looked a lot better if I did not try to do layers of rainbow colors, but just did all one color per jar. I have also been collecting crayons since Alyssa was a baby eight years ago so a lot of the crayons were old and the papers took forever to peel off. The idea was to make these now and get all new crayons with the Back To School sales then have the girls give away the candles as Christmas gifts. I do not know now though.

    That would still be a cute present like for the grandparents. IMO kid crafts are supposed to look a little wonky so you know they really are hand made by a first grader. Something that looks professional wouldn't be nearly as cute.

    Yep, ITA with this. I never had any of the normal symptoms with either kid, and until they started moving the only indication I was pregnant was the BFP stick in the drawer in the bathroom that I kept looking at just to make sure.

    Agreed! Weird there wasn't a like button on this one. For anyone else doing this kind of craft, you can soak the crayons in water to get the wrappers off, and then just lay them out on paper towels to dry.

    Thanks. They look nothing like the original picture and don't stay lit very long but Grandma's won't care.

I have heard of raising chickens as becoming more popular, but rabbits were an interesting off take. I called my Dad who grew up on a farm in NY and he said they raised rabbits all the time.
    My brother used to raise show rabbits and the ones that weren't show quality they would eat. It wasn't really that unusual for them though because he lives in the mountains in Montana and they did a lot of hunting and so had a lot of wild meat, deer, antelope, elk, mountain goat, bear.... almost anything you can get a tag for.

    Funny story though, if one of the rabbits would bite them, that was usually the one that ended up on the dinner table. So the cat scratched my niece one day so she asked if they were going to eat the cat

    There's such a thing as show rabbits??? Do they have their own rabbit equivalent of the AKC???

    I have heard of and known of people who hunt rabbit, but I had not heard of people raising rabbits to eat. Although now that I heard of it I am finding it is more common that I would have thought.
