Trunk or Treat 2009!

Sunday was our annual Trunk or Treat event at the church. This year we had over 250 people and more decorated trunks than we have ever had. We had beautiful weather and had a lot of fun! This year I dressed up as an oven with a "bun" in it and Reed dressed up like a baker. The costumes were quite the hit. Reed did a great job decorating my oven costume. We had many people with excellent costumes and decorated cars. Here are a few photos from the event.

When the kids were out Trunk or Treating

Of course there were many more cars decorated. We had a chili contest too, which provided a yummy meal, perfect for fall. And lots of games for the kids! In all, it was a great event. I love that it is something where even the older people from our church can participate and come out with their decorated cars and chili recipes. I can't wait till next year when I get to have Anna all dressed up!

29 Weeks!

Well, we are at 29 weeks. Reed and I are both ready for Anna to be born! We have known about her coming into our lives for over seven months now and are just ready! As I have come into my last trimester, I have found myself more and more exhausted. Getting up the stairs can even be challenging, at times and takes my breath away! But I am hanging in there. Everyday I thank God for blessing us with a healthy pregnancy. I know His timing is perfect and when she arrives, it will be perfect too!

Reed looking as good, as ever!


This is just a reminder of what I used to look like. Man, has my body changed!

Little by Little

Yesterday, Reed and I went and picked up our crib and changing table for Anna's room. We were able to get enough money from our baby shower, in Oregon, to cover the cost of these items. Which, of course, we are VERY grateful for! Reed did a great job putting them together! Of course, I just watched and told him what to do.

Rocking Chair

This is my latest fabulous find on craig's list. It will be perfect for Reed to rock little Anna Banana back to sleep in during those 3 a.m. cry fests. Of course, I'll probably use it too!

Anna's Room


While I was in Washington and Oregon, Reed kept busy by painting the walls, doors and trim in Anna's room. He did a great job. He had the room all set up when I got home on Tuesday. He even set up a pack n' play and swing that our friends gave us. I have found myself going into her room just to look at it over and over again and thinking about when she gets here. I am so excited and counting down the days! Here are some pictures of his work on her room.



The colors of the room beforehand.

Priming the walls. Reed had to do many coats to cover the pink and blue!

He had to do the closet too! It was also pink and blue.

The green walls. This color matches Anna's bedding.


The espresso colored wall. This wall is my favorite!


Almost finished! Reed also painted the closet doors and entry door, but we are waiting to hang them. They need a little extra drying time.




We hope to get our crib and changing table in a few weeks after our trip to Tennessee. I'll post pictures when we get them. Thanks, Babe, for all of your hard work!
