Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween everyone! I love dressing up. This year Brandon and I were Jessie and Woody from Toy Story.

Shannon's octo-mom costume ROCKED! Jason fit his costume a little too well...

We went to a party at Jason and Shannon's last night and had a really good time.

For the first time, I made home-made root beer. Okay, Brandon might have been the one to do the actual making of it, but it was my idea!

We also made our own individual pizzas. They were so good!

Russell's spider web guacamole:

The best group shot I got.

We played a really fun game with quarters and dice and we were all way too in to it to take any pictures.
Then we had donut-eating contests, couple style. It was so funny to watch!!!

Russell and Aubrey.

Dallin and Shellee.

Thanks Jason and Shannon for the fun party!

Carving Pumpkins

Last night Brandon and I carved pumpkins. I guess since it was Monday you could say we did it for FHE, but who are we kidding, every night is FHE because we always do something together. We can't let a Halloween pass us by without carving pumpkins.

Brandon getting started on his pumpkin.

Me with my pumpkin.

I always love how much better they look when they're lit up.

Yes, that's right folks, we are having a GIRL!!! And we are soooooo excited!

I Love Birthdays!

If any of you remember, I had an awesome birthday this year! Brandon totally spoiled me and I had the best day ever. At the end of my post I wrote that it was the best birthday I'd had...yet.

My half-birthday (no, I don't celebrate those but yes, I always think about them) isn't even until tomorrow, but I can't help thinking about my next birthday already. There's a possibility it might be even better than my last.



For my next birthday.....

I'm getting THIS!!

We are finally going to have a baby! And I couldn't be more excited! My due date is actually 6 days after my birthday but what do due dates mean anyway? Babies come when they are ready. Should be sometime at the end of April.

It's hard to believe that this sweet little thing is swimming around inside my belly. Brandon and I are so grateful for this miracle.

I'm 13 weeks today and hoping and praying that the morning sickness will go away before the baby comes! I've thrown up about a million times it seems like. But it's all for a good cause.

Vegas Again

I'm starting to see a pattern on my blog. I only blog about stuff that happens on weekends. Life is good during the week too, but apparently it's not exciting enough to take pictures of and blog about...

Anyway, so this last weekend we took a trip down to Mesquite and Las Vegas. The main reason we went was to watch the BYU game. But of course we had some fun on the strip while we were there.

I am so in love with the Bellagio. Maybe one day I'll actually stay there. I love the display they always have and I love seeing it change. We were there just 7 weeks ago and they've already got it all decked out for Fall. I wonder what it will look like for Christmas...

This was the first time I'd ever seen the water show in the day. Still just as cool.

Looks like Brandon forgot to smile...

I could sit for hours and just watch the shows over and over. But we only watched this one.

I love seeing places all decked out for Halloween. The other 2 M&M's at the front were dressed up like Elvis and the Phantom. They looked so good!

Watching the 3D movie in the M&M factory that we never knew was there.

And yay, the lions were out this time at MGM Grand. We even saw the trainer in there with them throwing bones to them and stuff. It was cool.

This guy just slept the whole time. They also had two little lion cubs but I didn't get to see them. :(

We had awesome seats for the game on the 6th row. And the weather was perfect! So nice to wear a t-shirt and flip flops again.

I think there might have been more BYU fans than UNLV fans. And for good reason! We kicked their butts.

After the game we went to Raising Cane's for a free meal. Everyone in the stadium got it since UNLV ran back a kick off for a touchdown. We got a few boos when we walked into the restaurant since we were wearing BYU shirts but the food was amazing so it was totally worth it!

Me and Shellee chowing down.

Not pictured: My AmAzInG pretzel from New York Pretzel inside New York New York and our squished hotel room where all 5 of us slept on 2 queen beds pushed together. Yeah, it was nice coming home to our own bed again. :)
So...I guess until next weekend...

Conference Weekend

Well, this last weekend was Conference weekend. And that's pretty much what we did - watched conference. It's all good though. Anything that involves not having to be at work is good.

On Friday night we babysat my 3 nephews while my brother and his wife went to the BYU football game. The boys were so much fun!

Ocean loves Brecken and would always walk up in front of him and then back up to sit on his lap. So stinking cute!

Kai kept saying he wanted something cold on his head because he had a headache.

This was my favorite. Ocean would crawl up the stairs pushing the exercise ball in front of him, and then when he got to the top he would yell for us until we looked at him and then he would throw the ball down the stairs. Over and over. Oh, to be entertained like a kid again...

We watched a couple sessions of general conference at Brandon's parents house and had a good pizza party over there after the Priesthood session. All in all, it was a good weekend. But aren't they always?
