Sorry I have been slacking off in the blogger world lately! Hopefully I will get back on track here soon.

So last Wednesday, the night before Thanksgiving, Justin and I got to go see Coldplay in concert at arena. It started at 7:30, but of course there was a few opening numbers so Coldplay didn't even get onstage until about 9:15. It was worth the wait, though. (Well, I think it was. The 2nd opening number was some weird DJ that played really loud, crazy, rave type music that lasted FFFOOOORREEEVVVEERR!!) Coldplay was awesome. They are lots of fun to watch in concert and they had some great numbers and a wonderful finale. After picking up Braxton and driving home we didn't end up getting back until about 1:00 in the morning. I remember days not so long ago when that was nothing, but I must be getting old because it sure took a toll on me the next day! It was fun though and really nice to spend time with Justin. We haven't been on a date in a long time so we needed one.

Piano solo. Really beautiful.

The Finale. Wahoo! (They were little tiny paper butterflies flying all over the place.)

Thanksgiving day was good, but tiring. We ate dinner with my family at around noon, then just hung around for awhile and eventually joined my mother's side of the family at a church where we played volleyball for a long time. (well, everyone else played, but I was exhausted and not feeling well so I stuck with watching B-rax most of the time.) The weather was absolutely GORGEOUS this weekend. Rainy and cold and wonderful Holiday weather. It would be so awesome if Christmas could be like that! I can always hope, right?
We did have a little excitement before heading to the church. I didn't know Justin's keys were in the car and I locked it behind me. Yikes! Luckily, my handy mechanic of a brother, Jaron, had a handy-dandy set of tools for just such an occasion.
In our case? 5!
My dad is on the other side guiding Justin with the wand thingy to unlock the door. It was pretty funny to watch them all! The keys were recovered fine and all was well.
And now its time for CHRISTMAS!!! WAHOO!!! I finally have some nice festive decorations I was able to put up this year, so our home looks all Christmas-y. YAY FOR THE HOLIDAYS!! Now if only the cold weather would come to stay, it would be perfect!

Spilling the Beans

For those who need clarification, I am indeed prego again. Definitely not planned and a bit of a suprise, but I am sure once this stinky first trimester is over I will be much more excited about another little baby entering our lives. Due date is July 1st. Thanks for all your comments and support!

Morning sickness, peeing every 5 minutes, morning sickness, feeling like you always are running on 2 hours of sleep, morning sickness, extremely tender body parts, morning sickness, bloating...did I mention morning sickness?

Isn't having children wonderful?!?! :)

This is one of Braxton's new favorite past-times. Along with opening all the cupboards and taking out everything he can find, he loves to open the bottom of the oven and climb into it. He loves to climb in and onto ANYTHING these days. He is just starting to walk now and will be taking off anyday. He also loves to point at anything and everything and grunts, asking what it is or calling my attention to something he finds interesting. Its almost a routine now that everytime I go into his room after a nap, he is pointing at all the sticker balls I have on his wall and wants me to take him around to show him each one. He also LOVES being outside and will spend every second he can out there. He will be a year old in a few weeks. I say this alot, but its amazing how fast they grow. I love my little man so much and just love to hold him and hug him and cuddle with him and watch him explore the world. He is so precious!

I hope everyone had a HAPPY and FUN Halloween! This was Braxton's first, and although he didn't know what was going on, he still loved dressing up in his little outfit and joining in on all the excitment. I found a little TIGGER costume for him and it worked perfect. He was so adorable!

Don't ya just want to EAT him? :)

We went to our ward trunk or treat to let Braxton do some trick-or-treating, and it turned out pretty good. They had carnival games and chili and cornbread and cotton candy and there was a really good turn out. Justin came straight from work so he didn't have a chance to dress up, but I went as a sleep-deprived mom! You can't see my crazy hair or the circles under my eyes very well in the picture, but it was simple and easy and fun to dress up and get in the spirit of things.

Cori and Eli and Indianna and Christopher dressed up in their Halloween best

Isaiah (Cori and Eli's son) dressed up in his "handsome lil' devil" costume. SO CUTE! (Indianna was an angel.)

My little Tigger and me!
