Fall is Here!

First I want to say thanks to everybody for all the sweet comments and emails. You guys are the best. Hopefully I'll answer the handful of questions I got, in this post.
I am currently about 5 weeks, which makes the baby due in June. The official due date is June 29th. That will make Natalie and new baby about 21 months apart. It wasn't a surprise, we actually planned it. Some people have questioned my sanity. :) And I tend to agree with them some days when I've chased Natalie around all day, but I'm glad they will be close in age. I had some fertility issues when we were trying to get pregnant with Natalie, so we didn't want to put off trying for number two. We were pleasantly surprised that it happened so fast this time around!
We went to the doctor today although it was basically just to confirm that there is a baby growing in there. He did do an ultrasound, but because it's so early all we could see was the embryo sac. I go back in a couple of weeks for another ultrasound. The 1st trimester tiredness is already setting in, but other than that I'm feeling pretty good.

So what else have we been up to? This past weekend we went to Tate Farms. My boss and his wife took his employees and families to the local pumpkin patch. Natalie had an absolute blast. She rode in the corn train with Annessa, picked out a pumpkin in the patch, and played her little heart out in the corn bin. We took so many pictures! Here are just a few of my faves.

1 Year Old and N's Secret

On Tuesday John and I took Natalie for her 1 Year Pictures. She wasn't so cooperative as we ended up with shots like This... and This..
and This...

But the guy did manage to get a few good ones, and actually we really like some of the serious faced ones, because at times, that is so her. Here are a few of the ones we liked.

And now, for the fun part. Natalie has something to tell you guys......................

She was gonna wait til after Mommy's doctor appointment next week, but she was just too excited!

We're Back!

We've been on vaca at the beach with Daniel, Telah and the kids. It was so nice to not have anything that had to be done and to just hang out for a week. The weather didn't really cooperate. The red tide was bad and we all hacked, coughed and sneezed as soon as we set foot outside. It rained for 2 days and then on our departure day, we had beautiful weather. Figures. But even though, we had a good time spending the week together. Since our time on the beach was limited, the guys spent most of their time playing World Of Warcraft. Telah and I did a variety of things from watching movies, reading, enjoying naps with our kids, and at night scrapbooking! Natalie didn't really care for the sand. She warmed up to it after a day or two, but between the sand and the wind, she just wasn't a big fan of the beach.

There was a lot of squinting going on in some of those pictures. The wind was just so crazy as you can see evidence of that too. Our family photo was not the best, but that's real life! That last one is of Telah's three kids and husband. I think it's the cutest picture! Caught just before they went over the walkway out of sight.

Scrap Overload

Not a lot to say today, just loads of layouts to share. Most of these were done with the October kit from Sweet Peas. I also have Sweet Spuds October kit that I'm breaking into tonight. So glad I've had some time to scrapbook!

And don't forget, if you want to participate in the Unpubbed Challenge, you gotta get a link to your layout posted to their comments by Sunday!
