The Peanuts Gang: Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy!

Joey's law firm has an annual Halloween Party and the kids get to go from office to office trick-or-treating. They had a great time! They still have our ward Trunk or Treat and Halloween night to look forward to. My mom made Hayden's costume and did an amazing job! I put together Lincoln's costume...did you know finding toddler size white sweat pants and a white hooded sweatshirt is next to impossible?

The back-side of Link's costume is the cutest! His little tail wagged the whole night!

Pumpkin Patch

Today we took the kids to the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch. The kids had a great time! They rode horses, explored the Haunted House, conquered the hay maze, bounced in the Bounce House and picked out some great pumpkins (which we put back and have since replaced with much cheaper grocery-store pumpkins).

Lincoln riding his horse, Dolly!

Spencer and his horse, Corky!

Hayden was old enough to ride a trotting horse and she looked like a bobble-head riding Raindrop.

The kiddos!

My boys!

Our little family. (I strategically placed Lincoln in front of my pregnant belly, which by the way, someone I know asked me today if being this big was normal....ummmm, sure!?!)

Just some pictures of the kiddos from our backyard. Unfortunately every picture of the kids together was a mess. I need to try to do group shots with Joey home so he can distract them with silly faces. Hayden is growing up so fast and my boys are BIG! I can't believe how the past few years have flown by. It makes me sad sometimes because I want to enjoy this time and sometimes it goes so quickly I forget to enjoy it. I wish I could pause the good moments and just take them in. We have lots of good moments mixed with a tantrum or two but that is okay! I will take these three kids any way I can get them!

Thanks Babe!

Joey brought me these beautiful roses the other night. What a sweet guy! Let's just say, I needed a pick-me-up and these flowers did the trick. Thanks honey!! I love you!

Thank you!

Some wonderful friends in my ward gave me a baby shower. They insisted we celebrate this baby boy even though he is child number 4. I really appreciate their excitement and I didn't feel like they felt obligated to do this for me. A HUGE thanks to Bethany, Heather, Brooke, Abby and Carrie!!!! You are the BEST! And to everyone else who helped with food, thank you so much: Karin, Shaylyn, Cheri, Brittany, Angela and Alison you are great friends!!

Joey's aunt and mom came to the shower! Thanks for making the trip!

The spread...the food was delicious! The party planners sent me home with enough food to last a week and I ate it everyday for lunch!

It was fun to get new stuff for the baby. And I'm especially grateful to have talented friends who made wonderful blankets, bibs, carseat covers, and nursing covers!

I've got a c-section scheduled for the 27th of November so the countdown has begun!

Again, THANK YOU!!!!!!!
