Thanksgiving 2011

This year we spent our Thanksgivning in Utah! Back when we bought the tickets we knew I would be very pregnant and were a little worried about traveling so late in the pregnancy but it was fine. We flew home 2 days before 35 weeks when you are not allowed to fly anymore. My family was in Utah too so it was great to be able to see both of our families in one trip, especially because we will not be going anywhere for Christmas. I only took maybe 3 pictures the entire vacation so I got these from my dad's phone.

My family came for my newest nephew Kellen's baby blessing. He is so cute and little and looks just like his older brother. It was fun to hold him and get a little preview of what we are going to have soon.

Most of my cousins. We all have freaky eyes because of the cell phone!

Dan's family just finished building this beautiful house in Provo. It is seriously humongous and we were lucky to see it finished. It is so nice that when everyone is visiting now we all have a place to stay and so much room for all the kids.
The best part of the new house is the hot tub!! The max capacity is 27 people. No wonder Jade kept calling it the pool!

And here is a shot of me at 34 1/2 weeks. I'm starting to feel super uncomfortable. My fundal height is still measuring two weeks smaller but I can tell this baby is still big. I have an ultrasound tomorrow to see how big she really is.
The last day of our trip I chopped 8 inches off my hair! I will post a picture later.

Pumpkin patch, Trunk or Treat, and CANDY!!

Jade carving her first pumpkin. Too bad it didn't even last a week outside. Within a couple of days it was all shriveled and gross!
We went back to the pumpkin patch for Camden's birthday! It was fun to be there with friends this time. Here is Jade and Ike.

I made these jello worms for the haunted house for the ward's trick or treat party. They turned out awesomely gross!
This year Jade wanted to be a cupcake! I knew she would be super excited to be anything that had to do with food!

Music Makers was on Halloween day so the kids wore their costumes. It was really hard to get a good picture of them.

Here is "Jade's" candy. When Dan and I put her to bed last night we went straight to the candy and organized it all like we use to do when we were kids. Too bad whenever Jade could choose the candy she would pick a sucker. She was happy to get 4 candy corns and we will enjoy the rest!
(even though it's the last thing we need too)
