Fall is DE (wait for it) LIGHTFUL!! Delightful!!

If you don't know what THAT quote is from we CAN still be friends as long as you promise not to judge me when you find out. =) We are LOVING the fall! It's such a fun time of year. I find myself tearing up every time I think that this might be my last fall in Connecticut. We've been trying to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather as much as possible. I wish I had more energy though! The other day I took the girls with me to a non-stress test appt. and on the way home Anika asked if we could go on a walk or play outside and I said that it was lunch time and I needed a nap! Keslie then said "I wish we had a Kensi." =) Kensi would play with them and take them on walks. See Kens! They miss you!

We went to our favorite apple orchard last week for playgroup and got a TON of apples! I'm going to tackle them tonight! My new friend, Rachel, is letting me borrow her apple peeler and it is AWESOME! Here are some pictures from that - I have way more of Kes. Anika just wasn't interested in having her picture taken!

We are down to the last month with this pregnancy!! I am SO excited to meet our little guy!! AND I finally feel sort of ready. I got his room all set up yesterday and we've been tackling projects every weekend so he can come whenever he wants! As long as it's not when Nathan is out of town. =) I get to go to 2 appointments a week now because I have to take insulin for my diabetes - it's crazy!! That's a lot of
babysitters to find!! I'm feeling pretty good - just the normal aches and pains that come with the last couple months plus the lack of energy. He is ALL over the place! He's pretty calm and his movements are pretty slow going but they are big and he bounces on my bladder and kicks on my ribs and shoves at my lungs. I think he's pretty cozy in there. =) Here we are at 35.5 weeks:

I think we might have a name finally!! It's a secret til' he's born though!

The girls wanted another hair picture taken - here they are:

Happy Sunday!!

Well I don't know the quote, but I'm sure I'll laugh when I find out!

I'm so sad we missed the orchard this year (but we will be there for the scarecrows this week!).

You are too cute, I can't wait to find out Baby Boy's name!

Those apples look yummy! And you look beautiful! Good luck with the last month. And I love how you do your girls' hair, it's so cute! I can't wait until McKell is old enough for me to do that with her hair...but I have quite a while since she's only 5 months old.

Your girls are so cute! You're doing a great job on their hair! Glad it won't be much longer till the baby comes! Love, Aunt Nancy

So fun! I was in Show Low this weekend with the chilly weather and all and it was all I could do not to bust out Christmas music. You are so cute and prego! I love it! Perhaps I will get up the gusto to take a prego picture to post. We'll see! Your girls are my favorite! I love their hair! I wish that I had the energy to want to be fancy with Katie's hair. It's so cute and easy to just pull up the top and scrunch and go. Bless curly hair! I miss you so much! Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. I have really craved you lately. We'll have to chat again soon. Love you!
