October Come and Gone

This month seems to have flown by. It has been full of many surprises(TWINS) and fun events. Unfortunately my nausea and exhaustion have kept me from keeping the blog up to date. Any free time I have has been spent either playing with Madison or sleeping. I am finally regaining a bit of energy.

We started the month celebrating our 5th Anniversary with a weekend Downtown. We stayed at the Embassy Suites and had a wonderful dinner at The Melting Pot. The room was pretty tiny with no view, but the great breakfast made it worth it. We also visited Saturday Market on our way home. It was fun to have a weekend just for us. Madison had a blast at Nana and Poppy's. She did not want to come home.

Later that week our Mommy to Mommy group went to the Pumpkin Patch. Unfortunately I was fighting a stomach flu on top of morning sickness. Luckily Nana lives close by and took Madison for me. I was sad to miss the event but we got some great pictures and she is still talking about the Punkin Patch.

Madison has been loving fall. She has fun pointing out all the colors of leaves as we drive in the car. She thinks they are great fun to run in and throw as well. We have been ejoying indoor playtime to its fullest. Daddy has been getting in on the fun.

Dara had a Halloween Girl's Night last week. We all dressed up. It was so much fun to see everyone's creativity.

On Halloween we went to the churches Harvest Party with Madison as Tinkerbell. She quickly figured out that she got chocolate(candy) from the games for her bucket. She had a blast and loved seeing everyone all dressed up. After the party we went out to our old neighborhood to Tacker Treat (Tricker Treat). Unfortlunately because of the over 400 kids who arrive at that neighborhood by 8pm lots of lights were out already and we only go to see one neighbor. It was still fun to go back to visit. Last but not least we went to Nana and Poppy's. Madison knocked on the door where Poppy greeted her with Raisenets. Her favorite! The night ended late to bed but full of fun.

I know this was a long post but I hope you enjoyed catching up with us. I am hoping to be much more on top of things for the month of November. We have a Dr. appointment on November 13th. I am hoping to learn much more about what to expect during this pregnancy.

You had an adorable Tinker Bell. Her hair looks like it has really grown a lot! It makes her look older!
