Baby shower weekend down in the valley.

My Aunt Lori graciously offered to throw me a baby shower back when I first found out I was pregnant.  She has a nephew from her moms side (whom I had never met) and his wife offered to throw it at their house in Gilbert.  The planning took months and it was definitely a success!  A couple friends couldn't make it, so we met up for lunch and dinner the day before (pictured way down at the bottom).  I'm honestly exhausted from Corbin's croup, my cold (that seems to be ongoing) and writing my research paper, that this was just a small break from it all and wanted to post these.  Maybe one day I'll come back and caption these.  There are a lot more, but the upload is insane on this.  I have more on my Facebook account if you have one. :)

Halloween in Flagstaff...for the 2nd time!

We went to the Hartman's again for Halloween.  I had borrowed a costume, but low and behold I would not fit into an XS maternity outfit..go figure (literally). :)  Poor Daryl didn't have a thing planned as we didn't think too many adults would dress up...well they did.  Oh well, we'll be better prepared next year.

Here we go again...

Sechrist Elementary is on of the last few schools to let the kids still celebrate Halloween and dress up.  They do a little parade through the school, sing songs and have a fun party!  I always volunteer for any kind of party such as these and luckily for me, they have all been on days when I don't have school.  I'm sure when Corbin is in kindergarten next year, I'll be running back and fourth between his class and her 2nd grade class with a baby attached to my hip trying to be in two places at once. :)

The little boy standing next to Tatum has a HUGE crush on her and she finally confessed she has a little crush on him as well.  I've had a few other parents tell me their boys have crushes on Tatum with one little boy already telling his mom that Tatum will be his wife one day.  So it starts....

Carving pumpkins!  Below this picture are the final masterpieces (we let Corbin use a butter knife this year and he actually cut out eye holes..Tatum also carved hers with a butter knife too).
