Here are some cookies we made for you. I hope you like sprinkles. You might not want to eat the green circle one with the red hots, Carson licked his knife a few times in between spreading the frosting. Plus I think he sucked on one of the red hots and spit it back out on the cookie.
Then again when I told Carson not to give you his germs, Sadie said you're magic so you can't get sick.
Hope you enjoy the cookies as much as the kids enjoyed making them with their friends.

We had such a great time on our cruise with Nate's family. First we flew to WA for Thanksgiving & to leave the kids with my parents. Then we flew to Tampa, FL where we left for our cruise. I could go on and on about the fun we had, but here are a few highlights of our trip.
**COZUMEL: Definitely the funnest day of the week. We rented 2 scooters and 2 VW bug convertibles and drove around the island beach-hopping. We spent most of the time at a park where we snorkeled and a few people (not us) swam with dolphins.
**ROATAN: Wow! This island is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and by far the saddest, most poverty-stricken places I have ever been. School was out for vacation so we had a group of kids following us around town trying to get money. They were cute, but so dirty. We found a great guy to drive us all around the island and see the beach, the LDS church, and the views. He also drove us through the ghetto. I have never experienced anything like this before, it's hard to even explain how I felt. I felt grateful for what I have, but sad that poverty like this exists in the world.
**BELIZE. I didn't get any good pictures because we were too busy snorkeling on the reef. Amazing fish!

At Halloween Nate took the kids to a corn maze for mutual while I was at a girl's night out. The next day Carson couldn't stop talking about the "corn dog" and how fun it was. I finally realized that he meant corn maze, but I thought it was so cute I didn't correct him for a while.
This morning he was reading a book to me and started talking about the jelly fish in the book. Then I realized he was pointing to the jelly beans in the book.
It's moments like this when I temporarily forget his behavior in sacrament on Sunday or his stubborn refusal to take naps lately.

...for picking such cute, fun, awesome wives. I know they didn't get together and plan out marrying women who could have so much fun together, but they did a great job!
Last night we had a baby shower for Julie K. at Archibalds restaurant (yummy) and we had the best time! I love that 5 of us are pregnant and ALL having boys!!! Yes, and one is having twin boys, so that will make 6 boys born within 4 months. We had to take a picture of our bumps, lined up from soonest due date to latest (me being the last).

My best friend Jenn came into town this week from Las Vegas with the sole mission of finding a wedding dress. I got to come along and help, along with her sister Tammy. We had such a fun day running around to several dress shops & she was successful!!! She found the most beautiful dress at the last shop we went to. Here's a picture of the gorgeous bride in "the one." I just love Jenn & am so happy for her.

Sadie's preschool class had a Halloween party on Thursday, the kids looked cute, but Miss Debbie looked the cutest in her Snow White costume! We had a fun little party Friday morning with some friends from the ward, the kids had fun playing and decorating cookies. The moms had fun visiting and eating Maria's yummy homemade food. (at least I did!)
We went over to Nate's parents' house for pizza and trick or treating, and to show them our costumes. Carson was a dragon (if you asked him he was a pink dragon with butterfly wings) and Sadie was a butterfly. I was a bottle of "Prego" spaghetti sauce and Nate was a box of spaghetti noodles. There was a hidden message on my costume:

I would love to have a hidden video camera watching my kids while I'm out of the room. It's funny to hear the things they say to each other (when I can hear from the other room), and to see what they end up doing while I'm not right there next to them. This week we had a couple of funny ones.
Sadie came to me and said "Mom, I forgot that you told me to never do this." "This" was try to curl her hair with a round brush. She had that brush so tangled in her hair I could not help laughing, until after about 30 minutes of trying to get it out of her hair. Then I stopped laughing. Finally after another 15 minutes or so, I made some progress and quickly got it out.

After the game Jenn & I went to Gardener Village for Witches Night Out, so fun! We cackled for coupons, got some great deals, ate great food, and I had a great time planning out Jenn's future in Utah! :)

This pregnancy has been interesting because I've had the nausea stuff, oh boy I have. But, then I am also completely OBSESSED with food, but only good food. I have actually found myself watching the Food Network channel for hours at a time, with absolutely no intention of making any of the delicious food they create (not like I could with the ingredients in my fridge, but still). I've also gone through my favorite cookbooks several times, staring at the pictures of the dishes. Nate has gotten tired of me actually rewinding back to commercials I see with food (like the Arby's sub commercial, yum) when I am fastforwarding the commercials during our favorite shows. Here are some of the food items I have actually eaten, and been obsessed with in the last few weeks of :
Stuffed Chicken Marsala from Olive Garden, oh my goodness.... so good. I could have licked the plate, okay I totally did.
Nothing fancy, but I had sweet potato fries from Arctic Circle and holy cow! I couldn't stop thinking about them for days.
Roasted Red Pepper with Feta soup from the Village Bakery at Gardener Village. I think I will have to call and see what day this week they're featuring this soup.

we're expecting! Okay, I'm the worst secret-keeper in the world, so it's probably not a huge secret to many of you, but I'm 14 weeks pregnant, due April 13th. We're excited to welcome baby #3 into our home!
