Pumpkin Time!

Loves this penguin SO much!
Love when he falls asleep on his mommy...
This past weekend marked the end of volleyball season and it could not have come at a better time. I did not think that I would have been able to make it through another day. I am so thankful that we got to end our season on a high note, we won the Consolation Bracket in the final tournament! We are back to back Consolation Champs! It is so cool that I was able to really elevate the level of volleyball at Dave's school while we lived here.  The school has very few trophies for sports but in my two years of coaching we have been able to put two trophies in the case!  I am rushing around like mad trying to get the house ready for the arrival of Connor, I feel as if the to-do list never ends. I am hoping that even though I am miserable being pregnant that he does not decide to come early because I need every last day to prepare. Today we carved and painted pumpkins, Aiden had a blast as you will see from our pictures! Can't wait to see many of you this weekend!

Family Fun

He LOVES pumpkins!
The scenic bathroom break
Love My Boys!!!
We had some fun family time this past weekend. We went to the "local" mini-golf place on Saturday, which is kind of a dive but we managed to have a good time. Aiden had a blast in the arcade, playing games and riding on a few of the little rides. The guy at the ticket counter was really nice and let Aiden have two toys that doubled the amount of tickets that we actually had. We finished off the night with a yummy dinner at Black Bear Diner in Bullhead City. On Sunday, we headed to Las Vegas because they have the nearest pumpkin patch. It was crazy! There was a line 1/2 a mile long of people waiting to purchase the pumpkins they picked out! It was 90+ outside, with no shade or beverages which led us to leave rather quickly and not actually purchase pumpkins. Aiden was happy to see the pumpkins in the patch though, so I am glad that we went to have that "patch" experience. We will probably pick up some pumpkins to carve this weekend. So our trip to Vegas was not "wasted," we decided to eat at Joe's Crab Shack. Dave had never eaten there before, and they had a really awesome playground for Aiden to play on. Aiden has been doing really well with potty training, in fact on the way to Vegas he let us know he had to go! We pulled over at a "scenic lookout," and Aiden had a blast peeing on the rocks. He thought it was pretty hilarious since usually I have him sitting on the toilet. Connor is constantly moving and kicking, and the doctor says that he expects him to arrive on time. I am praying that he is not early because I still have so much to do, including driving to California next weekend!

Aiden is such a good photographer...

Happy Family!

Yummy crab at the Shack! :) Aiden enjoyed his Broccoli and Mac & Cheese

Potty Training

Pluto is Potty Training with us.. :)
My attempt at a playdough train to appease Aiden...
He loves hats..even when they are not really hats. :)
We are on Day 3 of full-time potty training. It is going relatively well, we have gone through a lot of underwear but he has not had many full on accidents.  I have REALLY started to show in the past week, which has made potty training even more difficult. Chasing around Aiden and taking him to the bathroom every half an hour is taking its toll on me but if I only have to change one kid's diapers when Connor comes it will be worth the extra effort. Pregnancy is kicking my butt, honestly the only good thing about it is that you get a cute little kid at the end of it. 33 days till my due date, which is blowing my mind. Even though this pregnancy has been incredibly difficult I cannot believe that it is almost over. I am hoping that Connor comes when he is supposed to, because I am going to need every day up until the 17th to prepare. Volleyball season ends next weekend, I cannot wait but I know that Aiden will miss it. He has become quite the little coach. He likes to tell the girls what to do when we are working on conditioning, I think it makes it easier for them as well because he is so darn adorable. Aiden will tell them to run faster, jump up and down, turn around and sit down (for wall sits) and keep your hands up.He is such a good little helper, I hope that he is helpful with his little brother!

He likes to be pushed around in the shopping cart...

Most adorable sleeper
