October, fall, and Halloween

October, Fall and Halloween three words I LOVE!! This by far is my favorite month, season and holiday! I love it even more now that I live in Oregon, this state is perfect for fall. All the leaves change, the weather is perfect, and its really so beautiful! Plus it stays like this through Nov. We went to the apple orchard, pumpkin patch, fall festival at my work, carved pumpkins and enjoyed this time of year.
Mikaila playing soccer! She's actually quite good if I could get her to go to practice, she only likes to play Games!
this is her soccer buddy Taine, they also go to preschool together (he was also the first boy she ever kissed...naughty little girl)
these two really are the best of buds! they play so well together and are really sweet with eachother
Carving pumpkins as a family, are you wondering what is all over Isaak's face?....marker! it's also on his hands, feet, belly and bum!
The witch and Spider Man are ready to go trick or treating!
first house on the stop. Mikaila ran from house to house while Isaak walked. She got tired of waiting for him so she would get his candy for him and move on to the next house.
this was the first year we carved pumpkins and I think they turned out pretty good! Isaak's is a boy vampire and Mikaila's is a girl vampire.

Long time no post....

Well, its no surprise, several months have come and went and once again I have failed to blog...what's new. A LOT!!!
Baby #3 is on HIS way!! I'm now 20 weeks and 4 days along. Through the half way mark! This pregnancy has been very different than the other two. Mainly because I didn't puke! Not once! Thank goodness and was only nauseous a few weeks. I'm feeling very lucky. The second difference is because I haven't been sick I've gained weight in the first trimester, which has NEVER happened until now. But I'm dealing with it :) Smells drive me crazy, I eat and eat and eat like crazy (hence the weight gain) but I don't want just anything its MEALS I'm talking meat and potatoes, foot long subs, spaghetti, hearty meals!
Overall I'm doing good, not as tired as I was in the first trimester and enjoying the next few months of the second trimester.
Here are two prego pics, so I don't forget how huge I got along the way of this AMAZING experience. Being a woman is so AWESOME!

15 weeks 2 days

20 weeks 4 days

time passes on....

I can't believe summer has come and went...the smell of Fall is in the air, the leaves are slowly starting to change color and kids are back in school.
We have done lots of fun things this summer and ventured all around Beaverton to different parks, playgrounds and water fountains. We were lucky to go to Utah for 10 days and visit with family and friends. Mikaila asks everytime if we can just move there all ready. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be close to family and then I am always reminded by family why it is nice to live away!
Life has been busy as always and work is going well. I only wish I could say the same for my marathon training. I only have one month until the marathon and I havent ran in almost a month, doesnt look promising. First it was my knee and then I got a kink in my neck when we went to Utah, then got Bronchitis and have had it for almost two weeks and this morning I woke up with a major stitch in my ribcage like I bruised something internally from coughing so much!! Seriously is this happening to me!
The kids are doing great. Mikaila starts preschool on Thursday I can't believe she will be four in just a few weeks. She is so funny and makes me laugh all the time I wish I could bottle her up and take her out in doses. Isaak is saying so much and its so clear. He is the sweetest boy EVER!! His face melts my heart.
Mikael and I are doing great! I only wish we got more one on one time together. We spend a lot of our time with others, by ourselves or with the kids. I think a mandatory date night should be in place!! (I'll work on that and keep you posted)
Also I have been trying to come up with ways to make money and start a business selling hair bows. I've come up with a name called THE PINK PIXIE and will debuting shortly just working out the logistics. I'm really excited!! Stay tuned...

Day trip to Seaside, OR

The last day before they left we drove to Seaside, OR which is just over an hour away. We were so glad we did!!

First the kids HAD to ride the carosel and they LOVED it, well Mikaila did Isaak could have gone without. He would much rather just watch.

Evarlie LOVED it and cried when she had to get off

Then we went to the Aquarium were the kids got to feed seals fish and touch sea creatures.

Then we headed out to the sand and water to play around for a bit. Mitch was nice and took Isaak out into the waves. Mikael and Mikaila were swinging and Ciara....

was chasing this little runner down the beach! Where you going Evarlie?

To finish it off Mikaila and I rode the bumper cars she liked driving but did not like everyone bumping into us. But of course wanted to go again afterwards.

Thanks Mitch, Ciara and Evarlie for coming to Oregon and visiting with us. We had such a great time and I was desperately needing some Utah LOVE. Your welcome back anytime!

We were so glad to have friends from Utah come visit with us last weekend!! It was so fun to see them and hangout even though the weather was typical for Oregon we did some fun things with the kids. We all went to the Zoo the Oregon Zoo is so much different then the Utah Zoo and I was excited to show it off. The kids all had a BLAST!! These are a few of my favorite pics!!
