Fun Weekend!

Friday marked 25 weeks of pregnancy:

Friday also was a very busy day! First I had a Doctor's thing where they made me drink a bottle of red 40 - not fun. Then I came home and had 3 ladies over for tea (no pictures, but very fun!) Then my friend Ryan came over! And then 3 hours later, my friend Hillary came to join us too! I met Ryan and Hillary through Teach Overseas. They were in my former Soviet Union group but we were not any where near each other the whole year. But we have remained in contact and when Ryan had to come to California for work, I invited him over instantly! Hillary recently moved to LA from her hometown of Portland and despite the fact we love each other we never seem to actually see each other - but Ryan was a good enough excuse for us to get together!

Here's Adam and Ryan making our Asian dinner feast from scratch! They started cooking shortly after Hillary left her home and they didn't finish until she arrived - it was a LONG drive and a fabulous dinner!

Here's a group shot while playing Quiddler - we had such a good time hanging out with them! (It also makes me happy when Adam likes my friends I force upon him!)

On Saturday we hung around the house and then went to Victoria Garden's with my mom and dad and brother. We all went to the Spaghetti Factory for dinner and my brother took this picture of us in the lobby. Sad thing is, I didn't realize how horrible we looked when we left the house - I actually thought I looked cute, so much for that idea!
Then on Sunday, Adam and I went to Disneyland for a short little trip after church. We went on a few rides and meet up with the lovely Kelly who it is always so nice to see!

Possibly the worst picture taken at Disneyland - ever!

The camera was too slow to catch our pennies being tossed - we just look confused here!

After Disneyland Adam picked me a cute little rose that smelled wonderful! We drove around for a while looking for food and finally decided on Red Robin - very romantic! But we got what we wanted (Hamburgers and fries) and we had a really nice time together - so all in all, it was a nice, simple date!

We both feel asleep super quick last night (our weekend might have been a little too full) the tired we felt was a good tired that had come to us through great times of relationship with people we love - what more could you want?!

6 months pregnant today!

Can you believe it?! I honestly didn't realize I was that far along! I mean I knew I was 24 weeks today and all, but then when I went online to see what 24 weeks translates into months I found out today is 6 months! I mean any one who can do math can tell you: 4 week in a month, 24 weeks pregnant - ta da - 6 months! I however needed the Internet to tell me that - oh well, we'll call it pregnancy brain!

So, here's a picture of myself I just took (due the wonders of the time delay button). An officially 6 month pregnant woman - who I think is look'n pretty good!

So far in October

Sorry for the lack of updates, we don't actually have a whole lot to report. Adam finished his first ever parent-teacher conferences last week and I know he is more than happy to have those done with. Here's a few pictures so you can see our cute faces!

Here's a picture of me at 22 weeks and 2 days (October 5) after church.

Last Thursday, October 9, we had some of Adam's family over for dinner. Two of Adam's mom's sisters came out for a week long visit to California (one lives in Georgia, the other in Ohio). We had a very lovely evening hosting them. The below picture is of Adam and I cutting up veggies for our baked potato bar dinner!

This last picture was taken just this last Saturday, the 11th, while Adam was starting his latest project of building the baby a changing table. This is just the beginning frame work, but it needed to be documented nonetheless. I love that he's building stuff that could be in our family for years to come!
