We took Mikayla to see Santa, she sat on his lap all by herself--big girl--but she was a little nervous. Patrick is not in the picture this year, no paybacks!!!

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....
