too many to pick just one

We love
1. this newly discovered blog
2. Our trip to Seattle to watch the Seattle Symphony and the ballet perform the Nutcracker . My mom and the girls and a friend got to go ( poor auntie C. got the flu and had to give her ticket away).

3. Working on my felt gingerbread house

4. Thinking about our 4 day trip to Leavenworth coming up. Snow here we come! That is, if there is any to be seen.

5. Going to see Santa yesterday. As usual the girls have EXPENSIVE taste.

Peggy Sue got married...

This last weekend was the annual Kerley Halloween bash. Mark and I were not sure we would be able to make it this year because of all the baby happenings, but we were able to throw together a last minute costume idea that turned out pretty great. I have my mom's old letter sweater...class of '61 and some cats eye glasses and Mark purchased an Elvis wig, rolled up a pack of candy cigs in his shirt sleeve and we were off to party for at least a little while!
People came in some pretty great costumes...my favorites were Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's, Strawberry Shortcake and Miami Vice...Crockett and Tubbs.
Don't know how long everyone partied into the night but it was a hit as usual!

Week 21 and a few days

Here I am with (finally) a prego belly. We took the girls to Craven Farms to get their pumpkins on Tuesday just before it got dark. It is nice to be out there during the week, when the farm isn't packed full of people. We love Craven Farms and we go there every year.

I think we will carve pumpkins this Sunday because the week is jam packed with activities for us. Mark and the girls are baking two cakes for the school cake walk and I can't wait to see how they turn out. They came up with some really good Halloween ideas. Pictures will be posted after they are complete!

You spin me right round

I think this may be the best coverband I've seen in a long time. I want them to come to Washington something terrible because my love of 80's music never dies.
Check out the band here. And with a super cool name "the Molly Ringwalds" what is not to enjoy?

Wooden candle holders

aren't these the cutest candle holders ever?

Halloween Pasta and other fun stuff

In our search to find San Pellegrino "soda" we headed over to Cost Plus World Market and picked up a bunch of fun food items today. I love that they sell holiday pasta. I usually pick up a bag of the shape pasta which includes black and orange colored witches, pumpkins, etc.
This year we saw extra long angel hair pasta there in regular pasta color plus black and it's called "witches hair". We also bought pumpkin flavored pancake mix, a bottle of Ed Hardy Sangria, and some really yummy Pomegranate flavored tea. If you have a Cost Plus near you, I highly suggest heading there. Typically I don't look much at the home decor stuff, but I might next time.
I am so excited for fall. I love all of the pumpkin flavored items out there. I may even try to get decorating for fall this next week. But that means I have to get in the shed. That doesn't sound like much fun!

all i wanna do

Hi everyone, it has been another month since I last blogged. I have been doing absolutely nothing. For those of you that have been sick while pregnant you totally get it. I felt so bad when my friend and hairstylist Heather told me she pulled out her old pregnancy journal and had been sick for 5 months. I am just pleading that will not be me because there are so many things to get done and so many more fun things that I want to do!
The girls are going back to school soon. About a week and a half. We have all school supplies purchased and I suppose they will want to pick out their first day outfits soon! It's hard to believe my oldest is going into 5th grade. Time is moving too quickly.
This weekend should prove to be a lot of fun. Our friends Kelley and Lee are having an end of summer BBQ during the day on Saturday. They have the cutest little house in Seattle and they are the cutest couple. Ahhh, the first months of love. Oh, and they are soon to be married. I can't wait. It's been forever since we've been to a wedding!
Saturday night we have a going away party to attend. Over this last couple years we have become friends with our friends Nanny, and we absolutely adore her. She is moving on to a new family and will be extremely missed (luckily I will get to see her from now and then for coffee/passion tea lemonade) and I wish I could afford her to take care of our new little one on the way because she is phenomenal with kids. The new family is so lucky to have her in their lives! But, our friends are throwing her a "peace out nanny" party and although it will be sad, it should also be fun. I suppose I'll have to be the designated driver? Keymaster? Hmm......I don't know that I have been either one of those before.
Hopefully if I am still feeling well on Sunday, my mother-in-law will be coming over for scrapbooking. I am way overdue and am slowly feeling crafty again. My scheduled project is to finish our Leavenworth Cabin trip from last December. There are just a few finishing touches that need to be done. I've seen a ton of cute projects and page layouts so after Sunday I'll post what I get done and the links to the other great projects online.
Oh, did I mention that we have a color scheme for the baby's room? Linda is going to make a crib quilt for us so I am super excited about that. I just have to pick out some fabric and deliver that and the pattern to her.
Nothing else to report at this time, so this is me logging out.
