Ok, I lied about the alcohol.
I meant to blog about the Pow Wow sooner but things got away from me. In a word, it was amazing. Seriously it was exactly what I needed. I didn’t go to the first day because it was raining a bit and I wimped out…but I totally enjoyed Saturday and Sunday. Was great to go out with my little family, get my kids out in their moccasins and just soak in the sights and sounds. (Since the Pow Wow my kids haven’t worn anything but their moccs.)
Grand Entry (my brother snuck in with the dignitaries...well actually he is on council so he was supposed to be there)
Sometimes it is difficult finding a seat but we were lucky

Whenever I’m at a Pow Wow I’m reminded how much I miss it. I think I’d like to dance again, but I need to get my regalia together. (Regalia…as a kid I just called it my “outfit.”) I definitely want my babies to dance so to set an example I think I will have to get back in the circle.
I think Junior would make a cute Chicken Dancer. It seems to be the style he likes the most, judging by his actions when they are dancing.

Perhaps Cielo will dance fancy like her cousin
We all had a wonderful time at the Pow Wow although I didn’t find earrings that I wanted to buy…and I ended up not buying anything except for food. I found an amazing bannock burger but Mission Awesome Indian Taco failed miserably. I gave up after my first disappointment and made my own later…

I have another OB appointment today. I’m totally ready to have the baby, I’m getting a bit tired of all these doctor visits. Plus, once the baby is born my Cholestasis should go away and I will no longer scratch like crazy. I hate it when I see people looking at my scratched arms and legs. I can’t even imagine what they would look like if I didn’t have my meds.
We finally set up the bassinet – Cielo has a few toys in there for the baby (Buzz Lightyear and Woody.) I have the baby’s clothes sorted from my huge stash of baby clothes now that we know what we are expecting. We are excited because this is our tie breaker….
IT’S A BOY!!!
