Our thanksgiving holiday this year was so wonderful. We decided that we would go to Moab to see my family since we haven't spent very much time with them this year. I hadn't been home for thanksgiving in four years so I was really excited to go. My mom makes the best yams in the world so I couldn't wait to eat all week. We left Tuesday night after Beau's class and made it there around 9:30. My wonderful sister Marisa got us a hotel room at the hotel she manages downtown. It was SO nice!! On Wednesday morning we woke up and helped Natalie take some family pictures of her and her kids. They turned out so cute and Beau and I got to take a couple of pregnancy pictures as well.
That night we had family game night which ended up being a blast. We laughed and laughed and played games with everyone which hasn't happened in a very long time. The rest of the week was filled with family fun. We had a pot luck at Nats on Thursday, Dinner at mom's on friday, Nine-oclock showing of New Moon with my sisters, Friday night, Motocross race for Beau and Simon, and a lot of other great stuff. It really was such a wonderful week. I am so grateful for my family and the opportunity we had to go spend time with them. As we were leaving Beau said "that is the most fun trip we have ever had in Moab" and I agree it really was. I was sad to leave my neices and nephews, my mom, my sisters, my brothers, and my grandma but hopefully I will get to see them all soon when our little love shows her beautiful self at the end of this month!

November Time!

I love November. It is such a nice fall month where the weather actually starts cooling down. Plus, it reminds us to be thankful for all that we have and prepares us for the wonderful Christmas Season. I am not going to post a bunch of thankful blogs like I did last year instead, I am just going to say that I am thankful that I have all that I have. Everything in my life, good and bad, help me be even more grateful for what I have.

Just an update on the baby, she is doing good. I have been on and off of bed rest in October but, November is a new month and I feel great! Gracie is a mover and a shaker this week so that has been very very comforting to me. I love when she kicks me now because it gives me the assurance that she is there and she is safe. That is what I am most grateful for. We can't wait to meet our little love bug and we both can't believe that I only have 7 weeks left! Where did the time go? Am I really going to be a mom? It's crazy but wonderful all at the same time.

Beau and I painted the window for Thanksgiving this year and I love it! I also love that it was something that we did together. He did the drawing and I filled it in for him. I love my husband he is so creative. Also, I will post my 32 1/2 week picture but, it's not very good. I think the picture looks fuzzy but it could just be my eyes...who knows. Actually, I am not posting this picture it is way too fuzzy and Beau says it isn't my eyes SO I will post a 33 week picture on Wednesday :)
