Happy Birthday Carlos!

This past Tuesday Carlos turned 31! Yes, he is a whole 2 weeks younger than I am. We were so glad that he was able to spend a few more hours at home on his birthday, since he has been gone and so busy lately.

Carlos was excited to get some new clothes, ice cream gift cards, and some Orange Patch orange juice!

Thank you Carlos for being a wonderful husband and father. We appreciate all the sacrifices you make for us and how the house just seems complete when you are here. We admire your dedication to your business and calling and hope you had a wonderful day!

Last night was our ward Christmas party. The kids loves the fun toys, singing and gift from the 3 wise men. It is so fun to see them get excited to see their friends. Each time one of Eliza's friends from the nursery walked in she would say, "Look mom, there's _____!"
So cute!

November stuff

This is my catch up blog for all the rest of the stuff that happened in November

The kids loved the Gilbert days parade a few weeks ago. Who dosen't love watching bands, floats, and have candy thrown at you?

Thanks to all my family and friends who helped me have a wonderful 31st birthday. And 31 is not nearly as bad as turning 30. Everyone came over that night for cake and ice cream and even Melissa skyped in from Japan.

The next night we went to the Zoo lights and even saw Santa.

Thanksgiving was great at my mom's house. Everything was delicious as always.
Here I am with four of the things for which I am most greatful: Carlos, Nicholas, Eliza, and baby on the way.
Our Thanksgiving tradition continued the next night as we went to see the lights come on at the temple.

"Playing" with the baby

I can't say I love everything about being pregnant, but I do love being able to feel my baby move. Lately we have been "playing" with the baby. He will start to move and then we will kind of poke my belly around where he is moving and then he will kick back. It is so cute. The kids are getting more excited too. Eliza loves to tickle my belly and Nicholas talks about how he wants to play with his little brother when he gets bigger. Now only 11 more weeks to wait!
