We had a fun Halloween and birthday weekend. Friday night Jim and I went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner and then started some Christmas shopping for the kids. We enjoyed the night away from the kids and came home to a very clean house thanks to our awesome babysitter Haley. That girl has very fast and good cleaning skills! The kids love her too!
Saturday morning Jim and the kids woke me up and had yummy cinnamon rolls and fruit for breakfast. They all had little presents for me and were so excited for my birthday. It is so fun having kids to celebrate with. Thomas had a soccer game that afternoon. I stayed home with M&K and took a nap while they were it was so nice! We had a gourmet dinner of sloppy Joe's, I ate my cheesecake factory leftovers. Jim got me this yummy cookie cake from Sam's club. All the kids helped me blow out candles, which is their favorite part of birthdays!

Matthew took every one's candles and loaded them onto his piece of cookie and asked Jim to light it for him.

For costumes this year we let the kids pick out their own. Kaylee saw the angel costume and had to have it. She is all girl! Matthew loved Thomas's old skeleton costume so it saved us from buying another one. Thomas decided on a clone trooper from star wars (which he is too scared to watch). We just stayed in our neighborhood and got to meet some of our neighbors. We drove to our friends in the ward who live in the neighborhood, but aren't so close. The kids thought it was pretty cool that they got to sit in the back not in their car seats.
I got released from my calling in Young Women's on Sunday. I have been working with the 12 & 13 year old girls for about a year. With the baby coming it was just going to be too hard to do it all. Right now I'm calling free, which is kind of nice because I fee like I have so much to do to get ready for this baby and Christmas and Thomas's birthday. I'm 35 weeks so I don't have too much longer. I start going to the Dr. every week now! Because of the c-section with Matthew, I can't be induced so I just have to wait until she is ready to come, which is hard because I'd much rather have it all planned. Oh well it will just make it all the more exciting. I can't believe that it is November, the year has really flown by!
