Halloween 2008

A couple nights before Halloween we went to the annual Trunk-or-treat in the church parking lot. The Superheros had a great time. Here's Kim and here tiny little butterfly.

The next night (Thursday) was supposed to be the big school Carnival i had been working on for so many months. it turned out to be a horribly dusty and windy day. When I got the the school around noon to start meeting the vendors and setting up, the Principle decided to cancel it. Not very fun. I had to make a million phone calls and refigure many things. It turned out to be for the best, but I did not leave the school until around 6 that night. The things you do for your little kids.

Jomama came that morning so we ended up having a fun night carving pumpkins and just hanging out at home.

Alexander loved digging in for the guts and seeds. He wanted his just like the cute face he kept making.

The next night we had a scary dinner of guts, bones and blood and hit the neighborhood.

They ended up getting about 25 pounds of candy to rot their teeth. You've got to love Halloween!

Some highlights from October

The month of October was filled with all kinds of fun and excitement. Rob sent me another bouquet of "I'm so excited we are having a girl" flowers. Actually all the card read was "It's about time". They were beautiful and I love that he loves to send me flowers, I just wish they wouldn't die so quickly. They smelt up the entire house!

I hope my baby girl is as beautiful as this rose!

Big Al had a bike parade at preschool. We have quite a collection of tricycles and bikes and he picked the oldest one in he yard! I love that smile.

The other 4 had their jog-a-thon at school. It is always funny to see how serious they take it. Ben and Zach ran non-stop, they are so competitive. Nate ran hard too , but with a big smile on his face. Jake did great and it was fun to watch.

This is Nathan's kindergarten class enjoying a Popsicle after their workout.

Secret Life of Bees Anyone?

I read this a couple of years ago and remember enjoying it. Did anyone else? Does anyone want to go see it with me? I need a date, Rob just wouldn't be as much this time. Let me know!!!

Does any of this belong to any of you???

I put this on the mommy blog, but I haven't had any takers. Do any of these things look familiar?
A barbie towel, a pretty yellow & pink flowered towel, Hurley shirt, billabong shirt, Nike shirt, and a rainbow checkered towel.

I love attending church in bed

There is nothing like watching Conference from the comfort of bed! I love laying in my pj's and listening to the prophet and singing along to the hymns. No shirts to (have Rob) iron, shoes to find or lessons to prepare. Is twice a year enough???

A Baby Girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today was a wonderful day. I have never cried so many tears of joy in my life. I got to see this blown up on the big screen....

I know it is a little gross to some. But for me to see there was absolutely nothing hanging or floating or poking out the middle was incredible. (Don't worry after she's born I promise to never share a shot anything like this, I just know I better share for all the disbelievers out there!) I had the tech show me from every possible angle for quite awhile and she wanted to make sure as much as I did!

I realize this is not my usual way of sharing info. I know I haven't even told some of my closest family or friends before today that I am expecting. I have been trying to hold it in after all our losses, and I feel at this point I would benefit more from your support, thoughts, love and prayers by sharing this news. I am being monitored very closely and feel good about having a positive outcome. We are extremely grateful and excited for this gift and opportunity!!!!!!!!!
