Getting Bigger

So you can see I have 79 more days Yippee!.

Something I found funny.

I was at church the other day talking with a friend about my baby and how far a long I am and she was saying how well I looked for only having a few months left. It's true I don't feel as big as I should . But I'm comparing myself to my sister who is due on the 28th of December. So I'm not to big... But today at work I was walking down one of the aisle's and then on my way back on of the girls I work with stopped me and asked "when are you due again, When you walked by I saw your tummy before I saw you." That made me laugh. I guess it has to do with what I'm wearing. The picture is what I was wearing today. I do look like the baby is coming!.

Oh and I went to AZ Mills today for lunch and to get a quick Christmas gift for my niece and I found out that in front of Sports Authority they have two parking spaces for Mothers-to-be and mother's with Infants. That was the coolest thing! It reminded me when I was in England at one of the grocery stores where they had parking spaces for pregnant, mothers with kids and older people.

And yes I put up the christmas tree on Sunday. Christmas is just to pretty and fun a holiday to not start early.

Thanksgiving with Matts Parents

It's nice to have family close enough to see each set in one weekend. We had Thanksgiving Dinner with my family and then we left early Friday to come up to see Matts Parents for the weekend in Snowflake. I'll add some pictures later. We ate lots of left overs. Matt helped his brother build his house. And I showed Matt's mom how to blog and get her pictures off her camera. I might have gotten a new friend online.
We watched Shrek the Third. It was a good one. We also got to watch Matt's best friends baby while they went to the temple. I think they were preparing us for our own.

Name Meanings

I just was thinking about names and what they meant, so I google searched Name Meanings. Here is my little families name meanings
Matthew - God's Gift - Origin - Hebrew
Heather - A Flowering Plant - Origin - English
Baby Kathryn - Pure, Virginal - Origin- Celtic/Gaelic

I got it off the site: http://www.name-meanings.com

Its interesting to see how a name fits the person. I can see baby Kathryn being the purest little baby. Just coming from Heaven in the presence of angels. I just have to live up to that in being her Angel mother.

Other news I'm 26 weeks today. I read she should be about 2 lbs now and about 9 inches head to rump. I read also that if she's premuture she could actually live from this time forward. No worries but just a relief to be out of that scarry time. I definelty am pregnant I'm getting rounder and rounder each day! Its kind of fun. except for the ugliness that comes with being all fat . Matt still thinks I'm pretty though. I just have to remember that he still loves me and that I don't need to worry. He really is God's Gift to me.

Halloween Festivities

Well, Halloween is come and gone. I can't believe it's already November. I have 3 more months. Till the baby. It seems I've been pregnant forever!!

We went to lots of Halloween parties this year.

We went to my sisters ward party before babysitting for another sister.

My work goes all out for Halloween and has decorating contests and trick or treating in the afteroon. My sister Rachel came with her daughters Rory and Paige. Rory was a Bat and Paige was a Cat.

Matt got asked to do two ward parties to do balloons. The first one was for a friend of mine. We were the hit of the night. hour long waits for balloons and we were the last to leave! Then our own ward party we got there at 6 and left by 7:30. Not nearly as many kids!

Matt is always the balloon twister for halloween and I get to be what ever I want. This year I found a really cute outfit that was for Elizabeth in the last Pirates Movie. Everyone at work called a Geisha.

We had our traditional family pumpkin carving night. This year we actually used a pattern. I think its cheating to do that but it sure looked good. Matt and mine was the headless horseman. Igor was done by my brother law Jared Brimhall .

We're on our way to Thanksgiving and Christmas . I can't believe the holidays are already here.
