Almost Halloween Treat

I AM PREGNANT!!!! I took a pregnancy test yesterday actually and it was positive, but I didn't really believe it, so today my very pregnant friend Trisha brought over a test to use and as we were secretly analyzing the results, Paul walked in. I hid the test. Trisha went home and then we all went out to dinner. I was texting Trisha the whole time for her to tell me what a positive test would look like, so she peed on a stick when she got home to see what a positive test would look like and then she texted me "your test was positive". I was so relieved!! I whispered in Andrew's ear "tell daddy that mommy has a baby in her tummy". So once Paul got back to the table he said "Daddy, mommy has a baby in her tummy!!!" Paul was so elated!
This is exactly what we wanted at the exact right time. God has blessed us so much with our lovely babies, all three of them! I can't wait!
The next night we went over to my parents house and had dinner. And of course I had Andrew tell my parents the good news. They were thrilled to find out as well. There was a lot of tears and hugs. My mom immediately called Rochelle and had Andrew tell his Aunt Chelle. She was screaming and just as excited as my parents. Not only do I love knowing that I am pregnant and I am so happy for myself, but I am so happy for my family too!

Halloween at Andrew's preschool was tons of fun. Both Andrew and Allison were pirates and I must say they were the cutest pirates I have ever seen as well. I stayed the whole time and took pictures of their party and games. They had a pinata and as Andrew went up to hit the pinata, he slipped and I managed to get this great shot of him. I felt bad though, I think he got embarrassed in front of everyone and I am not sure he really knew what he was doing or why he was doing it. Poor dude!

Halloween night Paul's parents and Mike and Becky and Paul's cousins Carol and Mike came over for dinner and trick-or-treating. Before everyone got there we had Andrew tell Paul's folks the good news. He told them that mommy has a baby in her tummy. Once again we all turned into a puddle and celebrated baby #3. YIPPIE! Dinner was great and trick-or-treating was a blast. Andrew and Allison went up to every door and yelled as loud as they could "Trick-or-Treat!!" Allison would always ask for a sucker or look to grab one. Andrew showed off his skills as a pirate by singing "yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!". He of course made all of our neighbors laugh and I am pretty sure they stole the hearts of all of our neighbors.

We met up with Logan and Nixon at their house and took some time to eat candy and take pictures.We had a fantastic night and got way too much candy. I am sure we will be eating it well into 2011!

An Autumn Visit From Aunt Katie

Katie came down for a weekend visit. We went to breakfast at Schooner or Later and then headed over to the pumpkin patch where the kids played games and fed the animals. I remember taking Andrew here when he was just a newborn and then Allison when she was just an itty-bitty!

Pizza with the Hunts

Tonight we had my friend Trisha and her boys Logan and Nixon over for dinner. We decided to have all 4 kids make pizza. They all did a great job making the pizza and eating the pizza. So happy to have neighbors that have become friends. My sister and I grew up with our neighbors being our best friends for our entire childhood and we are still close to them as adults. Here's to many more pizza making nights with the Hunts!

Hanging out

Most nights after dinner we play "downstairs" before bedtime. Here are a few pictures of our silly kids.
