Halloween 2009... What a blast!

This Halloween was so much fun! I started out by making orange rice crispy treats in the shape of pumpkins, scary cat, ghost and moons... all with black and orange Halloween sprinkles on top of course! Then I made orange colored pancakes for the girls, kinda wonder what color their P**P will be in the morning. Then we decided to let the girls help us gut and carve pumpkins which was a huge mess but the girls had a blast! Grace just loved playing in the guts and Kaylee liked pulling them out and sticking the guts and seeds to her!

Then Reed and I cleaned up the girls and baked our pumpkin seeds and decorated our front porch for the trick or treaters.

After dinner we got the girls dressed and went around the neighborhood and collected our candy. We were not sure if the girls would understand what we were doing or enjoy walking around but they did. They would walk up to the doors and ring the doorbells and say "treat, treat" and "hi" and hold out their bags and get the candy then they would say "thank you" and then "bye-bye" we did it for an hour and this is what we came home with!

Happy Pregnant Lady!

Reed and I have figured out how to go back to working with my midwife to proceed with a homebirth! We couldn't be happier! I love the idea of being at home during and after the birth of my son, I hate hospitals! Don't get me wrong, I love them when I need them, but for my birth I don't feel like I need them!

Oh, and my mom agreed to come and fly out a week before and stay some time after the baby is born! I am so happy to have my mom by my side once again!

Goodbye hospital and HELLO being in my own bed at home!

It's Begining to look a lot like ... FALL

The season has most definitely changed here in VA! We are now in the mist of fall colors and beautiful weather! As you can see:

Reed, the girls and I are all doing well. We all just got over some small sickness but other than that we are just enjoying each others company. Reed and I have also figured out that we are 99% positive we will be moving back to Texas come March/April. Reed's boss is most likely going to open a new Houston branch for Reed to run or there is a small possibility that he might open it in San Antonio, but whatever the case we will be in home in Texas once more! Now we could have a choice in Houston or San Antonio so if you would like to give your two-cents as to the city you would prefer us to live in let us know!

Baby boy Murray is also doing very well and is very active inside my tummy, most day's I think the is either moving furniture or practicing for the gymnastics team! Like the forgetful pregnant lady that I am, I completely blanked the fact I had a doctor's appointment today so hopefully I can reschedule that soon. I am feeling well, just uncomfortable and fat... lol... here are some pictures of baby boy Murray at 26.5 weeks along!

Pumpkin Patch 2009...

We went to the pumpkin patch this Wednesday afternoon and it was such a perfect weather day and there were no crowds! Last year the girls were to small to do anything and this year they could do it all. We played on wooden trains, hay bails, lot and lots of different slides, we did a hay bail ride, ate kettle popcorn and saw some baby piglets and calves. Overall the day was a blast and I wish we could do it everyday!

We let the girls wear their Halloween outfits so we could get actual use and photos out of them. Kaylee is the fairy and Grace is the pretty witch because she loves the hat, and no that does not mean we think Grace acts more like a witch or Kaylee more like a fairy it is just the costumes we bought and the ones they picked to wear that day, we liked them, we bought them and they wore them.

Enjoy the pictures!
