Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Patrick, Nanette, and Mikayla

last weekend, we went to Christmas Village in Ogden with our great friends, The Smith's. They brought along a handmade sled which the girls adored. We had a great night!
When we got back, we took a Saturday and decorated our tree. It was snowing and we had Christmas music on, it really got us in the Holiday Spirit!!

We took a trip to Colorado to visit some family for Thanksgiving. We brought Kimo along and we stayed with my mom and Ben. Of course, we had a great time!! We were able to hang out with family, Mikayla rode a horse, hung out with Carolyn's new puppy--Nemo, my mom's dog, La Beau we decorated my moms Christmas tree. We had a nice 2009 Thanksgiving, thanks grandma and papa!!

Mikayla being a goof, making a silly face in daddy's tennis shoes...

Having fun in the snow with daddy. Patrick came home from work and it had been snowing for a while, so Mikayla and Patrick went out back and played around for a little bit!

Mikayla is getting ready for Thanksgiving with her Turkey hat making more crafts--her favorite thing to do!!

We finally got Mikayla's room done, she LOVES her big girl bed and her new room! It sure is a girly girl room--so cute!!
We went Trick or Treating with some great friends, and had a great time!! Mikayla decided she wanted to be a duck and not a lady bug for Trick or Treating, the costume was nice and warm--thanks Auntie Carolyn and Trinity!!

Tutu (Mikayla's grandma) sent her a Halloween package. Patrick and Mikayla ate some oreos and opened up the package--hence the oreo lips on Mikayla
Thanks Tutu!!!
I am now 36 weeks pregnant and have been taking Apidra (fast acting insulin) before meals and Lantus (long lasting insulin) before I go to sleep. Getting my sugars under control has been a struggle, but with some help from my endocrinologist, dietitian, midwife, and some nutrition education, I have gotten it figured out. The plan is to be induced Monday December 28, 2009 at 5:30am. Wow, a real Christmas surprise! I have been going to see my midwife twice a week for about a month now and I see my endocrinologist and dietitian every other week--to say the least I have been busy! Luckily I have an awesome husband and some extremely great friends who have been helping me out with Mikayla.

I am 2 cm dilated and 75% effaced, so we will see if this little one wants to wait until Dec 28th to meet the world....Now for some overdue blogging....

A fun visit to the Treehouse museum with our great friends!!

Mikayla's friend kaylee celebrated her 3rd Birthday with a great princess party. Cinderella was there and all the girls were dressed up in their cute princess dresses--so cute!! Mikayla and I had a great time!!

We went to Black Island Farms--a pumpkin patch/farm last weekend with some of our great friends. We had such a great time!

Last week, Mikayla and I went on a super fun pumpkin patch hayride with our moms group. We had such a great time and got to take 2 pumpkins home!

Halloween fun!!

My mom, aka grandma, sent Mikayla a card for Halloween--she loves it!!! In the card were some pretty cool stickers. Of course she went to town and has already used them all--she went for the Hello Kitty ones first! She loves to make sticker crafts!

Her auntie Thryn sent her a Halloween package with a cute pumpkin bear aka orange bear, and a cute flashlihgt necklace. She loves them both!!!

Thanks auntie Thryn and grandma!!

Our big girl in her toddler bed!!!!

We, actually Patrick, took some time and finally painted Mikayla's room. Since I am pregnant, he wanted me no where near the paint. We bought her some new twin size bedding (for when she moves to a twin bed), matched the colors, and went town painting. Our first idea, was to paint yellow on top, light pink on the bottom, a chair rail between the two, then a brighter pink around her window seat. After the paint was on the walls, we changed our minds, and decided to go with yellow, and a darker pink with a chair rail and paneling below her window seat. I am going to try and make a window seat cushion and some curtains for her, we'll see :-).

We moved her into the spare room while Patrick was paining and when we moved her back into her room, we decided to convert her crib to a toddler bed--wow our little girl is growing up! The first night, she fell aslepp no problem at all. About 2 hrs after we put her down, we heard a couple of thuds on the ground. We raced upstairs and Patrick found her trying to get up off the floor--oohh. He picked her up, gave her a big hug, then put her back in bed all without her crying!! She slept soundly the rest of the night :-). The next day was a challenge for naps, I had to put her back in her bed 4 times, before she fell asleep. I wanted to make sure she was in bed, so I camped out outside of her door--I fell asleep also!!

She has not fallen out of bed since, and I have only had to put her back into bed once for naps--yay!!! We decided to order her a twin bed that will arrive sometime next week. We also bought some cute decals and painted her letters that spell her name, pink and green--which we will put up when we put her new bed together.

When I take Mikayla's hair out, before bed/bath time! My little one has a fro--too cute! She calls it crazy hair and I have to agree!

A friend (Brittany) passed along this blog to me, http://wwww.princesshairstyles.com/
I have been able to get some great ideas. The girl has much longer hair than Mikayla, but I am tying to do some modifications. I am going to try master french braiding this week :-) Here are a couple of cute styles.
