Weekend update: 11/11/12


at the doctor’s office for a 6 month check up.

can you believe that the Holiday coffee cups are already out!?!



Getting ready for piano lessons with Mrs. Payne Winking smile


Toys are so boring. . . climbing on the fireplace hearth is much more fun.


Now that the baby is somewhat mobile, Abby spends most of the time on the couch – out of the baby’s reach!


Lots of help getting ready for Nicole’s baby shower.

I made that diaper wreath!


Someone was very interested in my lunch!


Abby braved the floor during lunch. . . but was busy multi-tasking between begging for food and play keep-away from Luke!


This picture just melts my heart. . .


The afternoon was perfect – 67 degrees for a run outside with the jogging stroller – 4 miles done. and what a difference a day makes – Saturday – 67 degrees and sunny. Sunday – 30 degrees and snowing!

Abby went for a car ride to pick up Papa Murphy’s Take and Bake pizza for the shower. .. 



The mother-to-be Nicole! *Loved her shirt!



Our first game – make a baby out of play doh!


Scott was super excited about the punch. . . mix equal parts of lemonade, sherbet (I used raspberry), ginger ale and pineapple juice.



Jodi made one of her fabulous cakes with our ‘colors’ theme.

Our next game – ‘the string game’ –> where everyone measures out a length of string is the length around of the mom-to-be belly. Shane (the father to be) got it right on. .. pretty sure he cheated. Winking smile

Sunday was spent lounging inside from the cold and snow. . .

And in the afternoon, I headed to work for a while for a video conference on asthma. With a chex mix snack! Winking smile 


More play time in the evening followed by chicken parmesan leftovers – made from this recipe from Iowa Girl Eats.

Overall a great weekend! Back to work tomorrow. Winking smile
