End of October

It is almost the end of October and it can't come soon enough. We had a nice relaxing weekend at home and really enjoyed it.

Friday, John Lawrence and I went to a Halloween party with the playgroup. It was fun. JL enjoyed dressing up in his Indian costume. He did not want to keep his hair/feather wig on for very long, but I still got some pictures. The group took some pictures as well of everyone; however, I did not get them with my camera. If I get them through email I will come back and post it later.

Friday night I went with Martha Jane to the outlet malls to find her some new work clothes. We were successful and she got some really great things. It was nice to get out and shop, but I could definately feel the back pain by the end of the trip.

Saturday was relaxing and quiet. We had big plans to work in the yard all weekend, but after a trial run on Wednesday of pulling weeds and trimming back I realized I could not do it and remain pregnant. We did some small projects around the house and got organized for you know who (baby). Saturday night Martha Jane cooked us a wonderful meal. Stuffed Shells, Salad, Bread, Wine and Chocolate Cake! John Lawrence helped her make the cake and cupcakes! He loved it!!! So you can imagine what he ate for supper that night. We lost count after his 5 mini cupcake! Thanks for dinner Martha Jane- It was wonderful!

Sunday- were we up in the 6:00 hour. I just don't understand why kids still wake up at the same time even if the time changes! Just kidding. We did some yard work- or should I say Mason did yardwork and I supervised. We knocked out some of it and the rest we will tackle during the next couple of weeks. We also tried to take pictures of John Lawrence and my belly, but he would not cooperate. I think we got 3 pictures so will try again in the next few days.

I will post again after we take some pictures on Halloween night!


Girls/Family Weekend

We went to Columbia this weekend for a family trip to visit college friends. We had a great time! There are 6 of us girls that were roommates since our freshman year in college. We are all married and 5 out of 6 of us have kids. Between us all there are 9 kids and 2 more of the way!!!!

We got into town on Friday night and hung out and then the women and kids went to the zoo the next day while the men went to play golf and watch football.

That night the girls went to eat at Kyoto's (Japanese steakhouse) to celebrate my baby's arrival. After dinner we came back to Ashley's parents house and we ate cake and I opened gifts. It was such a nice weekend and was great to share it with Mason and John Lawrence. We all love going to the Smith's house for a weekend. We call it a Bed and Breakfast! Thank you to the Smith's for always making us feel welcome!

We are home now and will be staying close until Baby Walker makes his or her appearance. I am 34 weeks as of Wednesday and the count down is on.


Getting Ready for Halloween

We went to the Pumpkin Patch on Saturday at Burt's Farm (Dawsonville, GA -about an hour away) in the mountains. The weather was perfect! JL loved the hay ride and looking at all of the tractors. We also had a picnic lunch near a stream there as well. JL had to get a pumpkin for Walker and one for Henry, so ended up leaving with 5 pumpkins!!!

John Lawrence will be a Little Indian Boy for Halloween. I will post pictures of him in his costume closer to the date. He is too cute in it!!!!

Belly Shots

Here are some new pictures of my belly. I will be 32 weeks on Wednesday. I really don't know how I can get any bigger, but I am sure within the last 8 weeks it is possible. I have a doctors appt. on Tuesday and from this point I will start going every 2 weeks. We are really getting excited about the new arrival and can't wait to find out if it is a girl or boy!
