Halloween

I LOVE Halloween.
I love
dressing up
scaring people
all the fun games
trick or treating
and of course, the scary movies

This year was our first Halloween as a Married couple
we went to a fabulous and fun party on friday at the King's
We had such a blast!
Our costume was....
2 Zombies badly sewn together.
So basically, we were eternally attached :)


I know you can't see it,
but we had nude fabric at our hips
and we had used yarn as our thread :)


On Sunday we invited our friends over
for some supper, dessert, and pumpkin carving.
and id have to say....
there are some pretty creative ideas here!

Christmas tree, Butt Crack, Jack-O-Lantern, Angry Birds Pig, and the only Scary Pumpkin

Kendra and Syd.
Fabulous job ladies ;)
Way to bring the Christmas Spirit early this year!

Stacey and Scott
So Creative!

Andrew and Nicole
by far the funniest!


Brandon
The pumpkin obviously stole his happiness.

Brittany and Maikal
Typical Scary Pumpkin.
But I still thought it was pretty neat lol

Picnic
So tonight we decided to have our own little picnic in our room!
My cute husband had this little idea and of course
I was excited about it :)

Crepes
Milk
Music
Candle Light
Quilt blanket to sit on
Aunt Jemima Syrup (seriously what else?!)

All in all it was a perfect bedroom picnic.





Side-not:

Here is some back-story to this....
About 3 weeks ago, I decided that we needed
new sheets.
So I went to Walmart and found a sweet deal for
a sheet set for $8.00! Cool right?
Wrong.
When I got home, Maikal looked at the package and said,
"200 thread count? That's like sleeping on cardboard
wrapped in sandpaper"
I for one had no problem sleeping with these sheets.
However, Maikal is a bit more refined when it comes
to bedding.
So yesterday, I went to Sears and searched high and low for
some High quality, High Thread Count sheets for my husband.
Lucky for us, we had a Sears gift card from our wedding and I only
had to pay $7.00 for 400 thread count Egyptian Cotton Sateen Sheets.
And let me tell you......
They are wonderful!!!




'Sheets of Egyptian Cotton! NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH!!!'
For those who have seen "Uptown Girls", then you
know exactly what Im talking about ;)

Busy Busy

Where do I start....
Well lets start with the fact that we've moved into a new place!
From the North side to the West.
We're mainly settled in.
All we really need to do is more cleaning and of course...
DECORATING!
Although the walls are the colour of skin, the house is very nice.
3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, unfinished basement, etc.
Definitely fitting for a family of 3 :)


Thanksgiving
Maikal and I went up to Drayton this year for thanksgiving.
It's always so nice to see my family and friends!
We played volleyball, Settlers of Catan, Concentration, and so much more.
We had our big dinner on Sunday and man was it delicious!
One of my most favourite things to do is
Eat and Visit with Family and Friends.
I am so blessed in my life to have been born into such a wonderful Immediate
as well as extended family.
We also took advantage of the beautiful fall weather and took a few
Family photo's :)
It's crazy how this picture has grown one person and is soon again
going to grow another!
My family is so excited to have their first grandchild and niece/nephew.




Baby Time
I am now 17 weeks pregnant and feeling good.
I still haven't had any nausea but I have
thrown up on the rare occasion.
I've gained about 3 pounds.
Although I feel like I've gained so much more!
I have found that my jeans are too tight and my shirts are too short.
Time to go shopping!
I had my first official Maternal Doctors Appointment
with Dr. Watke. She is very kind and informative.
The baby is about the size of an open hand now
and I think...maybe...I've started to feel it kick!
It could just be gas bubbles....not too sure.
But it's very exciting!

Since I am 17 weeks along, I've decided
that it's time to have my belly shot!
Maikal was my little photographer and as you
can see, it took a little while to get a good shot.
Sometimes when people are behind a nice big camera,
all they'll want to do is snap pictures like crazy and say, "Work it" lol


Explaining to Maikal that this is the size of frame I wanted.


Getting frustrated...

More frustrated...

Annoyed...

Blinded by the flash

The flash was overwhelming!

And finally.
My nice 17 week baby bump picture :)
