We Voted

This picture has nothing to do with us voting today, but it put a smile on my face, so I decided to share it. Josh and I both did our American duty today and headed to the polls. At least this way, if our choice of candidate does not win, we can complain about it, because we actually voted. Plus they give you a sticker. :)

Baby Shower

My best girlfriends threw me a baby shower brunch this weekend at Chez Zee. It was such a wonderful time shared by all of my closest girlfriends and fellow mommies. We left the husbands and kids at home and enjoyed each others company without any distractions. I had a great time and our newest family member will have plenty of diapers when he gets here. Thanks to everyone who came, especially those of you who came in from out of town. And in case you haven't heard yet, and did not look at the cake picture, we have decided to name our bouncing baby boy "Brody". Not sure on a middle name yet, we will have to wait and see.

31 weeks pregnant

We are all cruising right along through this pregnancy. Josh and I are getting excited to have a newborn again, since Jaden is such a big boy now. Jaden knows there is a baby in my belly and gives my belly sweet kisses and pats. It is enough to make any hormonally charged pregnant woman come to tears. I can tell my body is getting more tired and it won't be long before I give this new baby an eviction notice.

Pumpkin Festival

Jaden and I went to a pumpkin festival at Canyon Creek Church. Josh is out of town on a deep sea fishing excursion, so we went on our own. We met Jaden's friends Connor, Walker, and Colten there. They had tons of fun activities for the little ones, inflatables, a petting zoo, pumpkin painting, games, and snacks. Jaden's favorite thing was the petting zoo. They had pigs, goats, chickens, bunnies, a pony, and ducks. He got to hand feed them. We decided you have to be careful with the ducks and chickens because they eat very quickly out of your hand, and it tickles. I think he wanted to bring an animal home, but I told him our home owners association doesn't allow goats in the backyard. :)

Date Night

For date night, Josh and I went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner and watched Fireproof as our movie. The movie has a great message and is good for all married couples to watch. I would suggest waiting for it to come out on DVD. The acting is not the strongest, kinda like a Lifetime movie. But we still enjoyed our evening out together. We have been trying to squeeze in as many as possible with baby #2 on the way. We know that once he gets here, it will be a little while before we can venture out again.

Jaden's Big 2nd Birthday!

Grandma brought Jaden a "Dino Sprinkler"
Jaden's 2nd Birthday was yesterday. We used Jaden's favorite TV characters and had a "Backyardigans" party with lots of activities in the backyard. The weather was perfect. All of the kids had such a great time. They swam, painted pumpkins, hit a pinata, and ate hot dogs and cupcakes. It is so fun to watch them run around and play together. I can't believe that he is already two years old. The cliche about time going by so fast is so true. Thanks to everyone who came, especially those of you that drove in from out of town. Jaden is a lucky little boy to have so many people that love him so much.
