First Baby Pic...

Here is our little third angel we got to SEE today for the first time. 
Everything is looking good and he/she has all body parts in tact and is growing at the perfect rate. 
The doctor says it HAS to be a boy because it has a heart and a brain! Took me a second because it was all in french... then I got the humor. ;-) (I'm slow in many languages!) 
Anyway... we are praising the Lord for this little one who will be arriving mid-May 2013!

Our Halloween FUN!

Well... what a fun season it is around here! Sadie Mac has vacation for two weeks for All Saints Break! We also get to celebrate "American Halloween" with friends from over here! Tonight we had a big party and carved the pumpkins from the farm and all got dressed up. 

Super Mario!!! (Princess Peach was also here... pics to come!)

Pippy Longstocking was here and was a big hit! 
She watched the little ones decorate the little pumpkins!

 Noah (aka Mario, but the mustache only lasted for the first pic) 
decorating his pumpkin with a marker!

 We feel very blessed to have lots of friends to celebrate with!

I was fixing dinner when everything got really REALLY QUIET! They had all
sat down to watch Charlie Brown's "Great Pumpkin"!!!! 

Then the carving began!!!

Crazy girls... we love 'um!

Daddy carved Noah's favorite... ELMO!!!

Pumpkin Patchin' it... French Style!

So... when you live in the middle of a concrete jungle, a little fresh air and wide open spaces is a BEAUTIFUL THING!!! Some friends of our told us about a farm just outside of town and not too far from our house! So, being mid-October... we headed out on a great pumpkin patch quest! We were welcomed by beautiful flowers and a beautiful blue background of sky!

Cute little baskets of gords, tiny pumpkins, squash, cucumbers were all set in a row. 

Heading out in search of the perfect pumpkin!

And oh the beautiful rows of sunflowers!!!! I'm a very happy girl at this point!

Who cares... it's wide open spaces so, lets run!!!! We went with some other friends too and we're glad they came along for the adventure!

So, the next few pictures are sequential:

Noah running shouting, "Dada... Dada!!"
(I'm sure he's thinking... wait for me guys, he just can't say that!)
 Dada finally hears and turns around and preps for his boy...


Noah shouting, "CHEESE!"

Rows and rows of orange pumpkins... YIPPIE!! 
 Picking the perfect one!
 After we got our prize, we headed over the strawberry patch... and the Great Strawberry!
 Heading back and of course... some more running!!!!
 The farm even had chickens and other animals!
 Fun day with fun memories. :-)

Our Home...

So... this is our new-ish home. We moved in at the end of August and we're still working. With two small children and pregnancy... life is a bit slower paced! Still have some things on the wall to put up and sorry for the clutter... but so is the life of a toddler mom. Hope you enjoy the tour...  
First, our living room. 

Noah's Room... with a pull out trundle bed when visitors come!

 Dining room that sits off of the LR

The Princess Room for Sadie Mac... This was our big project when we moved in. We had amazing help from my WONDERFUL FRIEND "aunt Krissy"!!!! She is worth $1,000,000!
All the walls in her room were basically like this, covered in wall paper... 
and Krissy came to help save the day! I was also thankful for her interior design support! 

The Master Suite

Random, I know... but it's the back of door and we painted it with chalkboard paint! 
It's been fun and useful!
