So, my big announcement is that I am pregnant...AND I have been useless for about 5 months now.  I am finally starting to feel better and just wanted to let everyone know if you hadn't already heard.  And don't feel bad if you haven't...my first doctor's appt. wasn't until a couple weeks ago...it has been a little crazy!  Here are some things that have been going on over the past few months.  Just wanted to say hello and wish you a Happy Halloween!




Shortly after I found out I was pregnant, Brian took off to Nepal for 3 weeks for a humanitarian mission.  I was not happy about the timing but I think he probably thought it was rather fortunate:)  He went with a medical team through the Air Force.


They treated the people for about a week and every morning hundreds of people would show up...they could only see so many patients in a day and had to tell the others to come back and try again the next day.



Not sure if this poor kid was better off before or after he came??  He had really bad eyesight and they only carried his prescription in adult glasses...funny but cute.


One of Brian's favorite foods is curry.  Fortunately for him they served basically the same dishes of curry for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  By the end of his trip everyone was sick of the food but Brian.








The picture doesn't do it justice but this is one of the tallest peaks in the world.  Brian said the mountains were pretty unreal.   





Cole turned 5 and got some money in the mail for his birthday.  Funny...this is same face I make when receiving this exact gift.


He wanted to have his birthday party at Pump it Up again...12 crazy sweaty boys running around like wild animals, I wasn't going to argue for a birthday at home.


His preschool party...his teacher gave him a slinky and a football...what more can you ask for?


The pumpkin patch.  It is always a magical moment when they find the perfect pumpkin for Halloween.








Since I am pregnant I can't go on any rides so Brian had to take my place on the Tilt a Whirl.  He came off green and was not right for the rest of the night.  In the meantime, I ate 2 navaho tacos and felt fantastic...I love fair food.  






Shortly after this picture, this mean horse bit Ella right on the belly.  It was traumatizing and for the next week and a half she told anyone who would listen.  Poor Ella.


Ella performed for a city parade and at the State Fair...she still loves to dance.








Cole's first season playing t-ball.  I don't know who was more bored...me or Cole.  I think we are going to try out soccer next.
