In the beginning of October we found out some great news. We are having another baby! We had actually been trying for quite some time, so we were very happy to finally be pregnant again. Of course, we are hoping for a boy, but I won’t be upset about a house full of girls. :o)
We took a trip to Connecticut to visit Jason’s family about mid-month while Nora was on Fall Break from school. We stayed with his Aunt Louisa and Uncle Gil and met a few of his cousins and his grandmother while we were there. We had a great time and enjoyed seeing the beautiful Fall colors. We also got to take a tour of His cousin Gil’s place of work, News Channel 8. It was really neat to see the studio and see a taping of a segment.
On our way back to NC, we took a side trip to see Noah for his birthday. It was great to see him and the place where they are staying (it’s nice to imagine him in a specific place). Nora had a great time playing with him and their step-sisters. We took a nice walk and he opened his presents and we were on our way again the next morning. I’m really looking forward to Christmas.
I was pretty sick for the next couple of weeks (morning sickness), but finally tried Unisom and B6 at night, which seems to be doing the trick. Because of Sandy, Halloween was freezing! Jason talked to a few co-workers and found a couple of neighborhoods that give out candy. We got the kiddos dressed up. Nora was a Spider Queen and Lorelei was a Bee, so cute. We ventured out in 40 degree weather house to house and had a lot of fun and got to see our friends too. It was an awesome holiday.
Pictures galore… (hover over the pics for a description)
Lorelei finally got over her fear of strangers on our escapade once she figured out that they would give her candy and we weren’t staying there. Such a silly kid. I’m looking forward to feeling better and Thanksgiving dinner in November. It’s getting cold here and most of the leaves have fallen to the ground to be raked up and burned by the hubster. He is on the ball this season! We’re settling in to boots and sweaters and looking out for our first snow. Until next time.
