Well, If you've seen my Facebook lately, then you have heard the news that I'm pregnant! We are very excited! I'll be 10 weeks this week. So far I've just felt really, really tired and pretty nauseated, but that's about it. Having Rocklin to chase after has kind of taken my mind off feeling sick, so that is nice. Rocklin will be 2 1/2 when this baby is born, which I think should be a pretty nice gap in age. I have a feeling this pregnancy may go by quicker than the first, but we'll see. Anyway, just wanted to share the fun news on our blog! Of course, I'll have updates along the way. We should find out probably in January if we're having a boy or a girl. A little brother would be a lot of fun for Rocklin, and of course I'd be thrilled with a little girl. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Family Fun

My parents were both supposed to come into town this weekend and be here all week, however, my Mom got the flu the night before and couldn't come! We were so bummed. But fortunately, my Dad is still here. One of the things he really wanted to do was go to Joe's Farm Grill - yum! The weather was perfect! We had a fun time.
We hope you're feeling better, Mom...we miss you!

Mama's Holiday Wish List

TodaysMama and Provo Craft are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you.
(Every now and then I get emails from a group called Todays Mama. Today they sent an email saying they are giving away this awesome gift package and all you have to do is post answers to these fun questions on your blog. I'm game! See below the picture of the Q &A's).
The list of prizes includes: a Madsen Bike filled with gifts and goodies from Provo Craft including a Yudu screen-printing machine, a Cuttlebug, a Cricut Expression Machine, a Your Story thermal book binder, and a Knifty Knitter loom set. That’s not all - a Dyson Blueprint, an Easy Walker Sky stroller from, two Sidekick baby carrier bags from Kemby and an Amber Alert GPS unit and a full year of service. Seriously? Pick me!! :)

1. What 5 items are on your holiday wish list this year?
THIS Gratitude Journal, some new workout shoes, and to be honest I can't really think of anything else at the moment. It's funny that as a kid you can think of a million things to put on the wish list, but as an adult the only thing that comes to mind are things for the kid!
2. What is your favorite handmade gift you have received?
The one that comes to mind is the Divvy Organizer my sweet SIL Sarah made for me. I love it!
3. What handmade gift have you always wanted to tackle?
For a while now I've been wanting to sew some cute ruffled aprons for the women in my life. Maybe one of these years when I get my sewing machine back on track!
4. What was the best Christmas gift you received as a child?
"Santa" brought me this personalized stamp with my name on it and a bunch of teddy bears holding balloons. Sounds silly, but I still have it and thought it was the coolest gift ever when I got it! Maybe that's when my love of crafts was born.
5. What items are on your kid’s wish list this year?
Since Rocklin is only 2, he doesn't really have much of a say, but I'd like to get him something big this a play kitchen or workbench.
6. What is your favorite holiday food?
All of it! All the comfort food of turkey, ham, potatoes, and of course all the yummy chocolate and desserts!
7. What will you be hand-crafting for the holidays?
I'm sure I'll be making some baked goodies, some homemade Christmas cards and at this point not sure what else. I would like to make a blanket for Rocklin, but we'll see if I get around to that!
8. What is your favorite holiday movie?
As of recent, I LOVE the movie The Holiday with Cameron Diaz and Jack Black.
9. Favorite holiday song?
Angels We Have Heard on High
10. Favorite holiday pastime?
Decorating the tree!

WWB = World's worst blogger.

This post is basically to say that yes, I know, I've been a horrible blogger lately. It feels like life has been just so busy lately that I haven't taken the time (or pictures) to blog! I hope to be back on track parents are coming out here for about a week (YEAH!!!) so that should give me something fun to blog about. :)

Happy Halloween

Halloween was pretty uneventful for us this year. (Unlike last year when we spent Halloween night in the ER!). The night before Halloween we attended our church's annual Trunk-or-Treat where the kids get to go from trunk to trunk. It was a lot of fun! Rocklin has his little pumpkin and I took him around and about every third car or so, he'd stop and sit in the parking lot to check out all his loot. It was pretty cute! I only snapped a couple of pictures because we were too busy passing out candy and chasing Rocklin around! (The kid does not know how to just hang out and chill. If he's not being held or buckled in his car seat or stroller, he's running. And he's fast!!). Our actual Halloween night was really low-key. We didn't end up going out, we all three were pooped and decided to stay in. It was actually kind of nice, and believe it or not we didn't get one single trick-or-treater at our door!

Daddy & Rocklin the puppy

This picture cracks me up (no, not because I'm sportin' like four chins) but because Rocklin had a kit-kat and he was deteremined to get it opened. He was gnawing thru the wrapper until he finllay broke in and started sucking the chocolate out. It was so funny (and messy)!

Hope all of you had a Happy Halloween!
