Not-So-Current Events.

With my first three children, my body handled pregnancy really well. Sure, I got uncomfortable...but I was only a little sick and I had the energy to do pretty much whatever I wanted.

I was a baby making machine!

This time? Not so much. More like...

I think I'm going to diiiiiieeeee!!!!

Ok, not quite that dramatic, but definitely much harder this time around. I don't know if that's because I'm 4 years older than I was last time or because my "alien" is gone or because I was still recovering from surgery or a combination of all three, but Oy! it's been harder.

Which means I have good intentions to write and post but then...I fall asleep on the couch instead.

So sorry, my friends.

Tonight, I'm avoiding finishing another project for the baby room so I thought I would post some of the latest goings-on in our family; despite the fact that they are no longer current events.

So let's go waaaay back to September and our first Buddy Walk in our new state:
It was a beautiful day for a Buddy Walk and the turnout was great! We did learn though that all of the activities really take place before the actual walk part. Unlike all the other Buddy Walks we've been at where they walk first, then play after. So the kids were slightly disappointed that we pretty much missed all the fun stuff. Next year, we'll know better.

They did manage to squeeze in some bounce house time which, for them, was the highlight of the event.
Now onto October...

Last year, I didn't do a lot of the fun Fall stuff. So this year, I tried to make up for it a little. I made at least three batches of pumpkin bars, pumpkin scones, and drank apple cider by the gallon. Last year, we missed our annual pumpkin-carving...but this year, we got it done.

Miss B was not impressed with the pumpkin guts.
Sorry for the blurry picture...but it's a ghost, Cinderella, and some bats.
Another funky picture...but it's the uncarved pumpkin for Baby #4, a spider and a traditional jack-o-lantern.

And I got to agonize over Halloween costumes again. The boys still let me influence their costume choices and Miss Banana just likes to wear this year we went Ancient world with a gladiator, Cleopatra, and a roman solider.

I got Miss B to wear the black wig and she actually kept it on! And while she likes to put on my make-up herself, she was not a fan of me putting make-up on her and she will cry/yell/kick when attempted. Lesson learned.

T-Man took his role VERY seriously.

We also did a little hay ride and put up fall decorations. Much more festive than last year!

The month of October was also Get-the-Baby-Room-Ready month...but most of the before/after pictures of that project are on Dr. C's phone so those will come another day.

(As long as I don't fall asleep on the couch instead.)
