Looking A Lot Like Christmas

Saturday night we headed down to a shopping center in Provo called The Riverwoods. They had tons of Christmas lights up, so we just went to walk around for a little bit. Evan had so much fun running around checking out all of the lights! 
 Checking out Santa-the line was way too long and it was way too cold out to sit on his lap
 Riding the motorcycle
 We later saw a shorter line and came to find out it was for free carriage rides! Since I have super pregnancy heat, I volunteered to wait in line while the boys ran around. There was definitely a reason it was free, but it was fun! 
This isn't the best picture, but I love Evan's face! 
We're excited to get to take Grandmas and Grandpas back with us in the next few weeks!

Frosty & Santa

We got a little bit of snow yesterday and Evan was so eager to get out and play in it! He really likes that snowmen have carrot noses, so we decided to make a little one, just so Evan could give him a carrot nose. So I gathered what little energy I have these days, got us bundled up, and we headed out!

Getting some boogers as he works on his snowman
Evan was so excited to put the nose on and then he was ready to head inside-his snowman reminded him that he wanted a carrot!

Monday night we took Evan to our Rec Center to see Santa Claus! I've taken Evan to see Santa the last few times we've been at the mall this last month and he's loved it! He runs right up to Santa when it's his turn and sits there very quietly (he's only ever said one word to Santa)! He was really excited to go...and then when we got there, he was a little unsure about things. I mean, look at this Santa-wouldn't you be too?!
The one time I can get a free picture of Evan with Santa and this is what I got! But hey, check out Santa's sweet pictures of Mrs. Claus and Rudolph!

28 days to go!!!

Sugar and Spice

This last Saturday some wonderful friends of mine threw me a really fun baby shower! 
The food was really good
 yummy pink cupcakes
 cute little pancake stacks
 fruit kabobs
pink lemonade

The games were really fun
 stuffing our shirts with balloons!
candy bar diaper game

And the company was even better!
Thanks to everyone who came and an even bigger thanks to those who helped put it all together!

Blog Slacking

It's been a long time since I've blogged. Partly because blogger hasn't been working very well on our computer and I just don't have the energy these days to deal with it. Here are a few things we've been up to since Halloween:

Me and Ev got to go on a tour of the local fire station with our playgroup. Evan got his own fireman hat and loves all things fire truck related.

Evan had fun helping Mom make some cookies

And we got our first snow that produced enough snow to stick and play in. Evan loved playing in the snow and can't wait to do it again!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my wonderful Aunt Alane's house. The food was delicious (including the 11 pies!) and the company was great! We appreciate them letting us join them!

Now we're just doing all things Christmas! Evan loves our Christmas tree and all of the lights. He loves going to the mall to see Santa. We were shocked when he went right up to Santa and sat on his lap. Too bad I'm not paying those mall prices to get a picture!

And I just checked my little pregnancy ticker and we're down to 37 days until our due date! CRAZY! A few of my awesome friends threw a baby shower for me this last weekend, hopefully I'll get some pictures soon!
