Savannah got to dress up at music makers on Wednesday! She was so cute! Watching her dance and play to the music made me think of when Nicci, Lionel and Jordan were the same age and also had so much fun at music makers. I found some cute pictures and videos of them celebrating Halloween at music makers in 2009, and 2010.
Here are two videos of Savannah!
The kids had lots of fun at the “Trick or treat street” activity tonight at their school. Nicci was dressed up as Elsa, Savannah was Anna, Lionel was Mario and Jordan was Captain America. They had decorated the school so nice and the kids got lots of candy. I loved seeing them so happy and excited!
Last Sunday afternoon we went down to the beach and Eric took some maternity pictures of me. I can’t believe that baby will be here so soon! I’m 35 weeks now. I’m definitely feeling very uncomfortable these days. Lots of aches and pains and bad heart burn at night. I am soooo tired all the time and have a hard time sleeping. I am super emotional about everything too and often start crying for nothing. I feel like a beached whale most of the time and kind of waddle like a duck when I walk. Baby has started to press down a lot lately and I definitely have a lot of braxton hicks contractions. I will have a quick ultrasound on Tuesday at 1o to check his size. Looking forward to seeing baby again!

We went to the annual Bainbridge Island pumpkin walk again last Friday. It had been raining the whole day so we had second thoughts about going but last minute I convinced Eric that we should go. Luckily it was only sprinkling a little when we got there and it wasn’t too crowded. It’s always fun to see all the different Jack O Lantern’s and the kids got to do some other fun activities too.
I love fall! I went a little nuts the other day at Trader Joes’s and walmart.
We had a fun relief society craft activity at the beginning of the month! Love hanging out with these ladies!

I attended a baby shower last weekend for Mindy! She had her baby two days ago and she is so cute!
Last Saturday we also attended the kids cousin Lily’s 1 st birthday party. She is such a cutie and it was nice to see family.
We got some hair chalk that Eric had fun with earlier that morning while I was at the baby shower. He is such a fun dad!
Yesterday we attended a family reading night at the kids school. It was fun!
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant loss awareness day. “We are honoring all those babies lost. Those carried, but never held. Those held, but never taken home and those brought home, but who couldn’t stay.”
Tonight at 7pm in all the different time zones around the globe, we will be lighting candles to create a wave of light around the world to honor and remember all the babies.
Remembering our Oliver.
A couple of weeks after school started Nicci started to come home and complain that her head and her eyes hurt after her long day at school. We decided to take her to have an eye exam to see if she needed glasses or not. Lionel came too and his eyes were fine but we learned that Nicci is a little far sighted and needed reading glasses. At first she wasn’t too happy but she warmed up to the idea after a little while and was excited when we went to pick out her glasses. Our cute little Nicci!
