Trick Or Treat! ~ October 31st, 2009

Halloween is here again!

Lochy and Kenzie are total hardcore trick or treaters. They run to all the doors, no wasting time, no dragging feet. They are go go go. Its a little funny. They are not old enough to be this into it yet. It was rainy and cold but they had so much fun.

Here are some pics of our pumpkins, the cakes I made for Lochy and Kenzie’s classes at school, their costumes we made, and last but not least pics of them trick or treating.

Needles…Fun! ~ October 2009

Most of you know this already but I haven’t officially put it on the blog. I decided a couple months ago that I am going to be a Surrogate for a couple I know. It really did not take me very long to decide that this is something I want to do. I know it will be a crazy emotional road but it will also be exciting and amazing and HUGE. I am really grateful to be a part of this. Michelle and Steve (the intended parents) are AMAZING people. They have been through a LOT and they really deserve this.

The date for the embryo transfer is fast approaching. November 12th to be exact. 2 weeks! Leading up to that I am taking various cycle meds, including hormone injections. I have one injection ive been doing every morning since the 17th. It is just a tiny little needle…maybe like half an inch…no big deal right?. Jamie has been doing them for me because I am a HUGE baby and cannot possible imagine stabbing myself with a needle, even a small one. I think he was nervous at first but he is actually really good at it. Fast and smooth. And then there is another one that is in the evening (not every day though). And it is this really GIANT needle. Well it isn’t giant…but I am a baby so to me it looks giant. Its like 1.5 inches long and ridiculously wide. Pretty gross. I actually made Jamie try it out on himself first, which was a little funny and gross at the same time. He actually did it though (he must really love me). I know this is kind of silly but I took a picture of Jamie holding the needle. I just want to remember this…lol.

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

Today we had two Birthdays to go to. First we had Hannah’s Birthday in the morning. It was a Hannah Montana party so there was plenty of singing and dancing and LOTS of little girls. They were having so much fun and they didnt want to go but we had to leave early to make it to the second birthday in the afternoon at the Wagon Wheel Ranch. Since we were just coming from the first birthday we really were not dressed appropriately for wading through mud and horse poo! The kids had SOOO much fun though. There was face painting, a wagon ride, pony rides, a petting zoo, bbq and cake, and everyone got to take home a pumpkin at the end. Here are some pics of the day.

Oli’s Birthday ~ October 17th, 2009

Today we had Oli’s birthday party. We went to Silver City for an Xbox party. The kids got the entire theatre to themselves and they got to play Xbox on the BIG screen. They also ran around and played some games and treasure hunts while waiting their turn for a controller. Then we headed to the party room for food and cake and presents. It was a fun day. Happy Birthday my little dragon boy!!

Thanksgiving ~ October 11th, 2009

Thanksgiving! We actually had a really relaxed day. We laid around, and then had turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, and homemade butter tarts. The kids loved it. After supper Kelly and Kendra came over for dessert with us. I got a couple pics of Riley enjoying her first real thanksgiving food.
