Happy Halloween!

We are enjoying another Halloween in Savoy, IL with my sister and brother-in-law. (Ok he isn't my brother-in-law yet, but I am just going to pretend because I am sick of waiting. Love you David) I think we have started a tradition of coming here for the holiday. Saves us all on buying candy too! Clayton decided he wanted to be a dinosaur/dragon this year. He was sooo cute. Anna, mom, Justin and I all went to the Illinois vs. Michigan game and had a good time. Thanks for the win finally! Anna and mom made yummy soup for dinner and we have just been hanging out. Hopefully there will be some more good football tomorrow when the Bears play! Hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween!

Since mommy and daddy don't allow candy yet, he got some fun Halloween treats like a tractor from Nana and Papa and a slinky from mom and dad.

3 Wonderful Years of Marriage +1!

We are having a great fall weekend in Galena! We came up for my Grandma Willy’s 90th Birthday party and to spend time with my parents and Aunt Anna.

It is hard to believe that three years ago this week Justin and I got married here! It was such a wonderful day!! I have always loved the fall, but having our anniversary during this season makes it even more special. I know I have said this before, but I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband! Justin treated me to a wonderful dinner on Wednesday night and Clayton got to spend time with his St. Louis Grandma, Dianne!

So I have heckled some of my friends who blog about having times that they don’t post anything for awhile. Also known as blog slacking. This seems to be a sign that someone is prego. Well, of course I have been trying to be consistent with my blog in order not to get called out, because I AM PREGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep, we kept it a secret for quite awhile and now I am in my 16th week. We are so excited to be adding to our family. I am due April 2. (Do you like how I just slipped this into the post:) I haven’t even been able to talk to everyone, so I thought I would get it out on the blog. Clayton is excited to be a big brother, ok, he has no idea, but I am sure he will be excited. Keely on the other hand has been sleeping more and is already pouting about another addition to the family. :) I am feeling a ton better now that I am out of the first trimester, and can't wait to start feeling the kicks! Hope everyone has a great end to the weekend!

Wonderful Surprise!

What a wonderful surprise! Super Aunt Barb and Super Uncle Dale surprised us on Sunday and stopped by on their way to Mt. Sterling! It was so great to see them. Clayton thought Super Aunt Barb was a little weird at first, but once I explained that she was related to Nana everything made sense. He loved Super Uncle Dale and wanted to go with them to Mt. Sterling and help milk cows. :) We love having visitors!

Here is a pic I got of the three of them! Hope we can make it out to NC sometime soon! Love you both tons!

My 1st Haircut!

Clayton has pretty fine hair like his mommy so he really hasn't needed a haircut even though he is almost 18 months. We trimmed his hair ourselves for Shannon's wedding, but we finally decided he really needed to go somewhere and get it cut. He went to Great Clips where Daddy gets his hair cut. He was sooooo good and sat still the whole time. We were very impressed. After we left we went to the park to play. It is really nice out today. We just wish the weather would have been better this weekend so Clayton could have gone to the football game with us. Not that any child should see the football that Illinois has been playing. J He hung out with Grandma instead. We had a nice weekend in Champaign, but wish Aunt Anna and Uncle David could have been there. I told Justin it might be a good idea to swap houses with people every once in awhile. It is really relaxing when you have a weekend when you can’t really do any “housework”. Anyone interested in this, say in Hawaii????

We hope everyone has a good week. We get to stay home this weekend so we are hoping we have good weather. Plus, Clayton, Kate, Megan and I are going to the Apple Orchard/Pumpkin Patch on Thursday!!! Enjoy the pics below.
