Happy Halloween

This time next year we'll have our own little trick-or-treater to take around and ring door bells with...

But until then... we'll just hang out with everyone and their cute kids!

Our friends invited us over for some dinner before they took their sweet girl trick-or-treating. :)

The little bee-utiful family!

better late than never...

We finally carved our pumpkin today!  We wanted to do something different... possibly baby related... but settled on a crown.

Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween tomorrow!

another FJ Cruiser

is ours again!

This was our "first" FJ Cruiser a few years ago the day we traded it in on our "first" Lotus...  Road Trip

And this is our FJ Cruiser now! (2 different ones)

We started our day off around 9:00 with breakfast at McDonalds and then drove down to Georgetown to look at one Kirby's been eyeing.

At about 2:00, we were proud owners of our second FJ Cruiser!  We somehow ended up at a McDonalds again for lunch (the McRib is back ya know...) and then drove home.

A carseat will fit perfect too.... so now we have two vehicles for our itty bitty baby on the way!

6weeks 1day & a heartbeat

We are still in awe of this miracle!
We were able to see our itty bitty baby's heartbeat today and hear it too!
It was amazing!

It was an extra special moment as today marks 5 years since Kirby's father passed. We know he was there with us smiling down at his newest grandchild.

only 2 more months

left of my daily blogging challenge!  Thank goodness!

I started 2011 off with this great idea...   But it's days like today when I wish I never started.  I have nothing to post about.  I'm sitting here listening to Kirby play guitar, thinking about how I can't wait to eat ice cream but I need to workout first, but wasting time sitting at the computer looking up all things baby/pregnancy.

Only a couple more months of these types of posts...
Ironically that's when we'll have tons of things to post about... imagine that.

Mr. & Mrs. Todd

Yesterday we were able to celebrate the marriage of Cody and Amanda!  They had a personalized ceremony and a unique reception.  I wish them years of happiness together.
Here are a few pictures from the day.

NMBP pottery

Some people from school went to I Got Fired in SC to paint pottery after school Friday.
It was so nice to relax & hang out outside of school!

A day in the life of a superhero...

Kirby capturing the moments at his school on Wednesday during Multiplicity Day...

The weekend has started...
at least in the King family.

Kirby and I always love Thursdays!  You see... this time Friday night, your weekend is almost over. 
But tonight.... you still have 3 days left of your weekend ahead of you!

We went to the B-team football game after eating a Mexican feast for dinner.  Now Kirby's playing the guitar behind me while I'm glued to the computer.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

So much to love this Wednesday!
Link up here.

I'm loving... seeing the very beginnings of our little baby on the screen today.  We aren't as far along in the pregnancy as we thought, so no heartbeat yet, but he said everything looks good!  We'll go back next Thursday for another ultrasound and hopefully a heartbeat.

I'm loving...the great night of sleep I had last night

I'm loving... being able to paint pottery this Friday with people from school!

I'm loving... the necklace my sister-in-law Paula bought me.

I'm loving... my "Wannabe Super Hero Man"

For Spirit Week at NMBM, they had multiplicity day (dress up like someone else) and so the exploratory teachers dressed up as super heroes.

he got that super bass

I have watched these videos 3 times and absolutely love them!  I know a lot of bloggers posted about them, but for the ones who haven't seen this... PLEASE watch! 
You'll be soo happy you did!
(well maybe... you'll probably have the song stuck in your head...sorry)

week 6

I know we aren't far along (and I probably won't be showing for awhile), but I want to document our journey (and we have to start somewhere, right?).

How far along? only 6 short weeks
Size of Baby? he/she has grown to the size of a blueberry already!
Maternity Clothes? nothing yet, but I did have to unbutton my pants at dinner tonight. haha...
Weight Gain? not sure
Stretch Marks? Nope- I plan on drinking water and keeping up with the lotion...  I already have stretch marks from when I hit my growth spurt years ago, so I have a feeling I could get them.
Gender? Obviously we don't know yet, but we do have names picked out already ;)
Movement? Nope- but excited for that moment though
Sleep? I have a lot of trips to the bathroom.  Other than that, I'm only losing sleep because when I lay back down to try and sleep, I realize "oh yeah, we're pregnant" and I can't stop thinking about it.
Food Cravings? nothing really...
What I Miss? maybe a Diet Dr. Pepper
Symptoms? a little tiredness
Best Moment Last Week? telling everyone... we were so excited!
Looking Forward to? Our first appointment Wednesday!

I asked Kirby to play along and he's such a good sport and obliged. 
Don't you like his outfit? 
It was mismatch day at school... haha.

new decoration

Slowly but surely we are filling the walls of our home.  We haven't had anything hanging behind our bed yet... until today!  We found this unique photo at Ross while on our shopping spree yesterday. 
Now we just need to paint the walls... probably when we paint the baby's room.

pregnancy purchases

Pigs are flying somewhere because Kirby went shopping today for 7 hours!  He scored himself a lot of things for school... shoes, pants, shirts, some things for spirit week.  I got myself a few shirts plus a few pregnancy related things... stretch mark cream (we'll see if it really works) and a journal to write to our little apple seed.  I want to document everything throughout this journey, but some things will be too personal to blog about, so I hope it use the journal for that.

more of the Garrison family

I'm going to post a few more pictures from last weekend so the family can see them.
Enjoy :)
