** 6 ** Years

On Saturday, we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by going to Kuipers Apple Orchard for apple cider doughnuts and honey crisp apples. The funny thing is that we originally intended to spend the gorgeous day picking apples there but when we got out of the car and saw the gigantic line of people waiting to go out, we both agreed that it wouldn't be the end of the world if we didn't pick apples. So we wondered through the shop, munched on some doughnuts, sampled some apples and made a purchase of 2 dozen apple cider doughnuts and a 1/2 peck of my fav apples and headed off to Menards to get some things we needed to finish the baby's room.
We enjoyed spending the day together
and finished it off
with a 3 hour long dinner
The Melting Pot.
We left with our bellies full from our last course,
Chocolate fondue with a swirl of peanut butter and probably way to many strawberries & bananas.
And then went home
to enjoy
our food coma!

I am blessed to have spent the last 6 years with such an amazing person
and I look forward
to an eternity more

33 Weeks!!

I just had to post a comparison here to show how much I've grown. The picture on the left is at about 8 weeks and the picture on the right is 33 weeks! I was getting ready for church yesterday and Dennis happened to be standing next to me and made the comment..."WOW, your belly sticks out far!" Yea dude, where have you been?
as Lydia continues to grow, I continue to love being pregnant! I am really going to miss it but I hope I will get to experience it again! It has been such an awesome experience and I have cherished every little kick and movement, even if it is at 3am!

Her room is coming along....still not ready to post any pictures, although I should post one of the giant pile of stuff in her room waiting to find a home! I am hoping we make major progress with it this week!

Baby Shower

I had my friends and family baby shower on September 11th hosted by my good friend Nicole with the help of her mom. It was nice to have so many people come to support us and show their love. I am astounded by the amount of clothes and diapers our little one already has! We played games, ate, chatted and spent way too long opening gifts! I did manage to sprain my tow pretty bad on a chair and spent the whole next week limping around as it was swollen and bruised but it seems to be on the mend now. Unfortunately, I didn't take many pictures but here is what I managed to get.

*The cupcakes were AMAZING! They were made with cream cheese frosting with chunks of real strawberries in them! I may have had more than one....or two...
