Final date?

Last night Brad and I went to the Seattle Sounders game. We got tickets through WEA so it was a special treat for us. We didn't get to choose our seats as we just signed up and tickets were mailed to us. We parked a couple of miles from the stadium and walked. I was so relieved when we got to the stadium since I would finally be able to sit down. Of course our seats were at the very, very top of the stadium so I got to hike up all those steep stairs! We had a great view of the whole field. The Sounders tied the LA Galaxy. I am pretty tired and sore today, but only had Braxton Hicks today. I'm wondering if last night was our final date before he arrives. 

Today I made him a cute elf hat for Christmas and a baby cocoon for him to snuggle.

Girl's Night At Samantha's

Sam hosted a beautiful girl's night for me a couple of weeks ago. Sandi, Amanda, Missy, Sam and the little girls Sage, Avery and Ava all came. We had dinner from Cristiano's (my favorite), trophy cupcakes, played games and opened gifts. Sam had done a beautiful job creating decorations and making her house look so very nice.

She got different flavors of baby food and made us guess which flavors they were. Some were disgusting. Missy always went first and it was fun to watch her reaction and she was totally grossed out! The peas were the worst.

Sam also drew and painted a baby to play pin the diaper on the baby. I went third. They spun me around and left me standing there. I tried to walk froward and the next thing I knew they were squirting me yelling "he's peeing on you!" I was pretty wet.

Then we played the diaper the baby doll game while blindfolded. It was hilarious. I grabbed all the dolls and tried to hide them while we were blindfolded.

Avery and Ava had a wonderful time playing together and it was so much fun to watch them run around and make "food" in the kitchen.

Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch in the valley by my parent's house with my parents, sister in law and new nephew. It turned out to be a beautiful day! My mom made him the pumpkin hat he's wearing. We chose one small pumpkin, but the handle broke off, so we had to get a different one. I also chose a demented one that was free. Here are some pictures:
He's snorting in this picture = Awesome! 

Never thought I'd see my parents both on their cell phones at the pumpkin patch! I told them to put it away!

After the pumpkin patch we went to my parent's house for homemade lasagna and ice cream. My mom thought we might not stay. Why would we turn down a free lunch?? Afterwards we watched the husky game and I held the little pumpkin on my big belly. The boys were kicking each other! :-)

Feet are gross

In two days I'll be nine months pregnant. I can't believe how quickly it's gone by, yet also how incredibly slow it's been. Today I spent the day washing the carpets, doing some laundry and making a few Halloween decorations. I was supposed to walk with Amanda and go to Arc'teryx but she has a bad cold. This evening I was resting on the couch when all of a sudden a foot jabbed out of my belly. I could see the whole thing including the toes. I can't stand feet so this was very disturbing for me! I almost barfed! I'm not fond of the idea of feet inside my stomach! Ha!
