Jack-o Laterns

Halloween is a great holiday to kick off the holiday season. You get to decorate. dress up, and hang out with friends. This past Friday we got together with some of our friends for a pumpkin carving party. Here are the finished products. Celeste did not get to stick around very late so we had to take her pumpkin's picture first. It is kind of blurry, but it is a really cute bat. My friend Karey made the smiley face, Kevin made the skull and cross bones, and I made the skull face. Ryan's is still to come...

Unfortunately, the kids wanted nothing to do with the carving process. Something about it being too messy and smelly. They choose instead to completely destroy the downstairs of our house with toys. Kai spent the next two days cleaning up his mess.

Baby Shower

Two of my friends from work threw me a baby shower this week. It was for my school friends and I got to invite a few of my friends from outside of work, which I am glad I did... seeing as my school has a staff of about 50 teachers and only 7 either showed up or sent a present. Never the less, I had a really good time and I got a lot of great loot for Andrew. I was also very impressed that one of the guy teachers I work with went to the trouble of baking my shower cake for me. It was delicious, and very "sweet" of him.

I can't wait for Andrew to arrive. My doctor told me at my last appointment that if I was interested in it, next week we could talk about induction, which of course I am. Ryan thinks we should schedule it for Halloween, but I am not too keen on the idea.

Nothing much going on.

I love decorating for the holidays. I especially like decorating the mantle. Here is my latest Halloween creation.

This past weekend Ryan, Kai and I ventured out to the Pumpkin Patch for some fall fun. We took our camera hoping to get some cute pictures of Kai, but as soon as we got there the camera died, so we failed to get even one picture. Kai did get to decorate a pumpkin and jump in a bounce house, so the trip was not in vain. We will try again another weekend.

Nothing else has really been going on so I thought I would post some pictures of Andrew's room. Some of our family has been asking about it, so here it is:

We left a bed in the room, because more than likely I will be sleeping in here the first six months of Andrew's life ( if not more)

I copied the idea for this bulletin board from my super creative sister in law, Cassie-- Thanks for the cute idea.

These are pictures Ryan, Kai and I made for Andrew... none of us are very artistic, but we tried.
