Halloween Baby Announcement.

To make our baby announcement official, Erik and I sported these great costumes Halloween weekend to tell the world the exciting news that we are pregnant! We are so excited to welcome a new little baby into our home next June. The due date is June 4th. The internet told me the baby was due June 4th, and then a couple weeks later so did the doctor. The internet knows everything. We got to hear the heartbeat on Wed, so yeah! We are really having a baby.

Thanksgiving Point Pumpkin Festival

Erik and I went on a double date with some friends of ours from church Shaina and Mike Burgoyne. We went to the Cornbelly's maze and pumpkin festival at Thanksgiving Point. It was a lot of fun and there was so much to do. We all had a great time. Here are the pictures from the evening.

The Great Pumpkin Affair

So every year, my best friend Sadie and I get together during the month of October and have our great pumpkin carving affair. We carve pumpkins all night, and roast pumpkin seeds, make pumpkin cookies, and watch a movie. It is so much fun. Sadie carved a cool haunted house, her husband Cory carved a fishbowl, I carved a bat, and Erik carved pixilated super mario. Why am I not surprised Erik chose pixilated Super Mario to carve. As complex as it was he Somehow he pulled it off. As always he was finished way before the rest of us and whining how slow we were. Thats my hubby. haha Here are pictures from the event.

The Dirty Dash

So Erik and I did the Dirty Dash at the end of Sept. It was a 6 mile run in the mud complete with obstacles, slides, and plenty of hoses being sprayed at you. Everyone dressed up in outrageous costumes too. It was sooo much fun! It seemed kinda hard when I did it though, and couldn't figure out why. Turns out I was 2 weeks pregnant and didn't know it. haha here are the pictures of all our fun.

The really cold showers we hosed off in after. Brrrrr

Lake Powell Tri Pictures

I have decided it will be easiest to post the pictures from the last few months in categories. So each post will contain a theme. This post is all the pics from the Lake Powell Tri. Did this 9 weeks pregnant, very proud cause it was hard.

Pregnancy and other news

So it has been forever since I have been on here. I was talking to my boss the other day about blogging and the benefits. I was reminded why I started my blog. To capture my memories and thoughts, so I would have a journal of my life up to this point. So I am going to be better about updating it.

Sooo much has happened in the last 6 months. I have completed 5 triathlons this season,was made the head of the OT department at Aspen Ridge, had my first level II student, Erik got a promotion and finished up the Toy Story 3 game, and we found out we are expecting a baby. I will go ahead and give you a few more details.

As you all know, I have made a goal to do six triathlons this year. I have completed 5 so far, and will be doing one more on Nov. 20th. I have completed the Daybreak tri, Scofield Tri, Battle at Midway, Yuba Lake tri, and Lake Powell Tri. They were all sprint distance. I was signed up to do the olympic distance for Lake Powell, but found out I was expecting, so I downgraded to the sprint for safety reasons. I was 9 weeks pregnant when I did this race, so I am proud I was able to do it. Especially considering I threw up an hour before the race (the joys of pregnancy). Erik has been wonderful during all of this. He has been my pit crew, camped in 40 degree weather, stood for 2 hours in sunshine and rain to support me. I love you honey! You are wonderful. I couldn't completed my goals without you.

In May I was made head of the OT department at my work and had my first student. It made my summer busy but fun. I learned a lot and had so much fun having a student. He is all grown up now as he has passed his boards and become licensed. My first student has left the nest. haha

In May Erik received a very nice promotion. It was a huge blessing to us financially, and well earned. In June he wrapped up the Toy Story 3 project and it hit stores a couple weeks later. The game has surpassed projected sales by a large amount, and is still selling like hot cakes. I am so proud of him, especially because his levels are the funnest in the game. It has received great reviews, so if you are looking for something fun for your kid to play, I would recommend this.

In early Oct. we found out we were expecting a baby next June. We are so happy about it. The pregnancy is going well so far. I got to hear the heartbeat on Wed. It was life changing. I am still having a hard time believing that I am actually going to be a mother. It is going to be the greatest experience I have ever had, so I have been told. anyway, that's the latest. I will post pictures in another post.
