A Recap in Pictures

Its been a while since I’ve been to the blog. I can say I’ve thought about writing everyday. I just haven’t sat down to actually do it.

Since my last post, SO much has happened, and what better way to explain,than in pictures

At my last post, we were still in late summer and our gardens were in full bloom.We got to pickbeautiful vegetables,

(Maybe not all were beautiful).

We picked delicious figs from our fig tree,

And remembered the special man that planted our fruitful trees, my Poppy,

We ran a 5k as a family,

where I won 2nd place in my age division!

We celebrated a certain someone’s 2nd birthday,

We had bouncers,

(2 year-olds aren’t always happy. They’re sort of like 13 year-olds. At least mine is).

and cousins that face painted,

and sang.

And lots, and lots, of loving family …

Oh, and CAKE!

THIS happened,

We are BEYOND thrilled …. more on this later.

For G’s birthday the Hubs and I got her front row tickets to Yo Gabba Gabba.

We had a BALL! And, we got to bring a special someone with us …

For me the best part of the show, save for seeing G’s excitement after her initial fear faded, was being rained on with confetti! I felt like I was on a game show, or in Oprah’s audience and she just gave us all a trip around the world … I may have evencried a little. Don’t judge me. Til you’ve been rained on by confetti, you wouldn’t understand.

Because of the new pregnancy news, my doctor warned that I take it slow on the Diva Half Marathon that I was scheduled to run. So I picked up and awesome running buddy to keep me company.

We celebrated Fall’s arrival by pumpkin picking,

We trick or treated,

We got to go to our first Crew Regatta that my little brother was competing in.

I thought the regatta experience was really cool … it was sort of like a giant, all day long tailgate where the athletes are among the fans until they board their boats. Andy’s boat did great – especially since it was their first regatta ever!

Then with SO MUCH to be thankful for, we celebrated a beautiful, family filled Thanksgiving that kicked off the Holiday season,

It was the good old kind of Thanksgiving, where everyone stays late, and you get to eat leftovers at night.

With the Holiday Season in full swing, our community had their annual Christmas Parade this weekend.

Someone thought Santa looked a bit suspect …

A good time was had by all.

Well, now that we’re all caught up, I hope to be back regularly with some good reads on working out while pregnant, being a vegetarian and eating well for two, and of course, all the fun that is raising a 2 year old. Here’s an amazing fact for you; G went in to her second year being quite the conversationalist. Now, she seemingly only has one word. “NO”. Yeah … it’s been fun!

Stay tuned!
