It's a...

So it's official!

It's a................

And I was so sure it was a girl! :)

(According to the poll most of you thought it was a girl too--

10 voted it was a girl, and 2 voted it was a boy.)

The ultrasound showed that everything looks great.

He's measuring about a week ahead of my due date,

but they said that if it's within 10 days that they don't change the due date.

I guess we can start buying boy stuff!!!

One reason we love Fall...

Check out our huge pile of leaves in the front yard!

Raking the leaves is work, but jumping in the leaves is pure fun!

Happy (late) Halloween!

So I totally slacked off on taking pictures this Halloween.
These are the only ones I got all day!

And this isn't what Ethan wore to school.
In true Ethan fashion he couldn't wear the same costume to school
and for trick-or-treating.
He went to school as a Ninja, though different than Julia.

The pictures I usually take at the school's costume parade
never turn out very well,
so I didn't take any.
Too bad since that was the only time he wore his original costume!

I didn't love either of their costumes,
but at least they were easy!

Ethan as a Death Eater, and Julia as a Ninja

Hope you all had a great Halloween!

Derek's costume

Derek has a twin in our neighborhood!
Well, at least some people think so.
Introducing Derek and Ty!
Every single Sunday someone gets Derek and Ty confused at church.

So for our ward Trunk or Treat Derek and Ty went as each other.

What do you think? Do they look alike?

Go answer the poll over on the right ------->

(Poll is now closed.)

Poll results:

1 vote: Yes they look exactly the same
8 votes: Yes, they look similar enough that I might get them mixed up
10 votes: They look alike but I wouldn't get them mixed up
1 vote: They look nothing alike, I don't know what everyone is thinking

Happy Birthday Ethan!

OK, so I'm a couple weeks behind on my posts, but I had to post about Ethan's birthday!
For Ethan's party we decided to take the kids to the movies to see G-Force.
Between our 2 cars we can fit up to 8 extra kids.
We sent out 10 invitations figuring that at least 2 kids probably wouldn't come.
Every single guest came, and 2 brought siblings!

We were SO glad that the weather was nice enough to have lunch outside!

The party started with pizza in the backyard.
And wow, those boys can eat!

Ethan received lots of fun gifts.
And we ended with brownies (Ethan's choice instead of cake) and ice cream.

We then loaded all of the kids into the cars.
Luckily my friend Alisha was able to drive too-- we just barely fit everyone.
Our group had 17 people!
We took up 3 rows of seats at the movies!
But everyone stayed put during the entire movie,
and they were all entertained.
It was an ideal movie for this age range.

It was very fortunate that we had counted everyone before the movie,
otherwise we would have left one boy in the bathroom when we were ready to leave.

Everyone ended up having a great time,
and it was a fairly easy birthday party.
The next day we had Ethan's family birthday party
at Grandma's house.
This time he had an actual cake,
and his choice of dinner-- lasagna.

He was very excited to get the new Far World book.

And he was also excited to receive money for his birthday!
He'd been saving his money, and he finally had enough to buy a PSP.

All in all I think he had a wonderful birthday.

Happy Birthday Ethan,

we love you!
