36 Weeks and A Tribute to Krispy Kreme...

I love Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.  It probably has to do with the fact that I worked there during the summer of 2004 while at a Campus Crusade for Christ summer project in Clearwater Beach, FL.  A few things resulted from my experience as the "doughnut stacker" at the end of the conveyor belt:  1) a respect for the hard work that goes into every box of creme-filled doughnuts that you see at your local grocery store.  The people who provide those wake up at 3:30 a.m. to stuff creme in the doughnuts, pour glaze over them, and stack them into boxes; 2) a deep appreciation for the marketing of doughnuts (For what it costs to make them, the profit is ridiculous!); and 3) a chipmunk face by the end of the summer.  The perks of the job were revealed through some serious weight gain that summer!

My sweet friends, Bethany and Elise, and I try to get together weekly for girl time and play time for our little ones who were born months apart from each other.  It's always a useful time to catch up on each other's lives and to provide great social interaction for our little ones.  Two of the three of us are currently pregnant.  And we've both been craving Krispy Kreme doughnuts.  So this week was a "play date" for the pregnant moms and Bethany, and the kids were sweet to tag along.  By the looks of these pictures, it's not difficult to assume that they had a blast as well!

I'm indoctrinating him at 15 months.  Look how happy he is to be at Krispy Kreme!

But let's be honest- he's much more excited  about devouring the hat.  

Sweet E!

Such troopers for appreciating the pregnancy cravings of friends!

The mommy-to-be with her soon-to-be 1-year-old!

Look how sweet and still this little one is as she compliantly poses for a picture with her hat on.

Here's what happens to Luke's hats.  Notice we have no picture with mommy like the ones seen above.  

It was hard, but I was kind enough to bring some of these home for Paul.  (Okay, I admit that two of these were my breakfast this morning!)

And here is Baby #2 at 36 weeks!  I am very thankful that this little boy is no longer breech, and today my doctor informed me that he will stay that way.  Thank you, Lord!

We can't wait to meet our little surprise miracle.  It's just a waiting game from here!


  1. I love donuts & I love this post! It was so great to see you at the Fall Festival! Can't wait to meet the new addition!

  2. Love you, love those girls, love those babies! Yeah for not breech!!!
