October

Let's do this chronologically shall we?

I went up to Vegas for the PHAST. If you weren't there, you should have been. If you were there, well, you know what I mean. I should have got a picture of the relay team, but alas, I did not. Let's just say that Jamie in the pool + Doug on the bike + Shannon on the home stretch run = a pretty fast time. I am determined to train for a triathlon and complete one on my own after baby gets here. Who's with me?

Jamie came down too and brought me the cutest thing you can imagine made with her own two hands. I mean it just makes me melt every time I look at it. I can only imagine how I will feel when our boy is wearing it!

Speaking of baby, 28 Weeks of pregnancy came and went. He is going to be here before we know it.

28 weeks

Was able to snag my brother for a half a day. We went to lunch and went shopping at Bass Pro. I gave him some old international calling cards I had collected and a pack of socks we never used. You would have thought he had just won five hundred dollars. Boy likes socks and calling cards.

Justin and I also did some shopping of our own. . . one time for a little stroller and car seat research if you will. We want a fairly good quality contraption. Something that can carry the car seat, is durable, and folds up nice too. Any suggestions? One we liked at Target was kind of an all terrain baby pusher. 

On one of our Target runs, I don't remember what we went in for, but we left with the very last one of these:

Irresistible.

Halloween. About this. Justin has had this brilliant idea for my costume pretty much since we found out I was pregnant. The day of our ward Halloween party--after some Photoshop action and some tricky ironing--we finally made this dream a reality. (Costumes made possible by Hobby Lobby.) 

P.S. There is now a Hobby Lobby in Rancho. If you haven't been, you should go, and if you have been, well, you know what I mean. It just might become an addiction for me.)

P.P.S. Yes we are wearing short sleeves on the NIGHT of October 29. Also, today in a meeting, someone mentioned the possibility of having one of our Christmas party activities outside. I love California weather. That could never happen in Idaho. I'm just sayin.

Oh, it's just the Death Star blowing up Alderaan. 

Look who else we ran into.

In case you haven't seen enough, let's throw in one more belly picture. This one was actually taken today. And that about sums up October.

31 weeks
