60 Days and Counting...

So I've been a slacker with blogging lately, but I noticed today my ticker was at the 60 day mark until the arrival of our baby girl. Crazy! I never thought we would see the day when the countdown would be in double digits when we were in the 100-200 and so days. This weekend Doug and I have our "birth class". I'm not looking forward to it, hopefully it doesn't scare me too much cause it's a little late now.

Thanksgiving was spent in Tucson, Arizona where we saw lots of Highams and saguaro cactus. It was fun to see Tami and her kids. She introduced us to a fun new card game. Doug's sister Rachel and her family were there, Jimmy and Christi, Adam, Debbie, and the kids on the mission (Becky, Liz and Michael). Lots of fun! We went to a drive-in one night and saw Enchanted and the Game Plan (it was 45 degrees when we left the drive-in after the double feature). Doug and I were snuggled together in the back of our SUV with blankets and pillows...brr.

We also celebrated Doug's birthday in mid-November. I have some pics from his birthday I will try and get posted.

Hawaii 2007

Aloha! We made it back from the land of surf and sun. Hawaii was absolutely wonderful. Doug and I went to the Dole plantation for yummy pineapple good. We then went to Sunset Beach and of course Matsumato's for shave ice. I recommend the guava, strawberry and watermelon. We also visited Lanikai Beach which has the softest sand imaginable.

We spent a few days at Waikiki and Doug was able to do some body boarding. We also rented some snorkel gear..sorry no pic of me looking like a beached whale with my fins and snorkel mask..Doug did take a pic at this moment it's still on our underwater camera.

We spent one day at the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) where we ran into AJ and his wife Bibian. It's always fun to run into people you know, but haven't seen in a long while. The luau and shows were amazing at the PCC. Doug did awesome in his spear throwing at one of the villages.

It was so lovely to just lounge at the beach, probably one of the last times we'll be able to both relax and sleep at the beach. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. It was definitely hard to come back to work. Our flight back was a red eye from Honolulu to LAX...not something I recommend to anyone ever, especially if you're 7 months pregnant.

Birthday wishes and a Halloween Party

We finally downloaded our pics from my birthday and the ward Halloween Party and Hawaii. The ward Halloween party/trunk-or-treat and my birthday were on the same day. Doug says he invited the whole ward to my party at the anyway here are pics of us in our costumes. Doug as Rocky Balboa (who won the Manliest Man award) and me as a cows for Liz. Also excuse the pjs in my birthday pic...we finally celebrated with some gifts and red velvet Sprinkles cupcakes at mid-night.
