Well, I have survived the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. I am 25% of the way there! It still seems so weird that I am really pregnant. We are really having a baby! I am assuming when I start to show and feel the baby it will feel more real to me. I think I am almost over the sick and exhausted phase. I can’t wait to feel better…I am just sick of feeling tired and blah. I hope as things progress I find this more enjoyable. With Karly I was so young and in a less than desirable situation so when I wasn’t ignoring the situation I didn’t feel anything really. I always thought the next time would be perfect. All warm and fuzzy and great feeling…I wanted to be one of those people who swear they love being pregnant and have never felt better or more beautiful. I am so not one of those people. I am tired and feel like crap. I have only gained a pound or 2 but I swear my pants are already fitting a little snugger. Don’t even get me started on the bathroom issues and prepubescent skin! Cross your fingers that the second trimester is warm, fuzzy and beautiful!

This year is Karly’s Golden Year. For those of you that don’t know what it is, it’s the year you turn the age of your birthdate. November 10 is Karly’s birthday and she turns 10.
It’s supposed to be your best year for luck along with a number of other beliefs.Seeing as it was her Golden Year we decided to go with the “GOLD” theme…plates, silverware, balloons, tablecloths…we even wore gold pleather pants! Karly wanted a party at the roller skating rink which I thought was so bizarre since she has never skated. She figured it out about halfway through and now can’t wait to go back and skate again! All in all the party turned out great! Thank you to all our family and friends that made it. It wouldn’t have been the same without you.

White part is baby, dark part is uterus
Yes, that's my beautiful precious sweet little girl...dressed as a dead ballerina :)
Halloween was a bust this year. I couldn't believe how many houses were dark. The first neighborhood we did had maybe 1/3 of the houses up. Second had 3 houses! It was weird! Luckily we had went to a friends church early that week, so Karly should have gotten her fill of Halloween!

As long as I can remember I have always carved a pumpkin...at least one! Growing up I remember me and my sisters doing them and digging all the guts out and such. My princess Karly hates the scooping process. This year I told her either she was doing it or we weren't doing it at all. Not being able to give up the tradition for myself I got a pumpkin...only one! Karly actually did a little better with helping. She would prefer to just draw the face if given the option. We scooped, she drew and Chris carved...one traditional pumpkin coming up!
