Phew, made it through the craziest two weeks work wise:) I still have a bunch of sessions to work on but at least I'm back to the two sessions/week now. Be sure to check out GC Photography this week as there will be a lot of new sessions posted! We had a busy weekend. We ran the photo area of the Fall Carnival at our church again.
Grandma and Grandpa came to take the kids around to all the games so that Gary and I could do the photo station. The boys had so much fun as usual.
We already had a bunch of pumpkins (given to us) but we always go to the pumpkin patch to let them pick out one too. So, Saturday morning we went and Kai picked the biggest one he could find while Koen picked the smallest one:) We have two kids that are VERY excited about trick or treating today. I'll have to show you a picture of my Mario and Pumpkin tomorrow. Oh, and the Mario Pumpkin that Gary carved for Kai.
And, my pumpkin, the 10 week belly (before dinner!). When I woke up this morning, I had been laying on my back and my uterus was so cramped up (it likes it when I lay on my side). It was continuously painful for about 30 minutes. Any kind of cramping gets me a little nervous but I think it's just all stretching out and all that jazz. I am feeling really good. Not as tired anymore and only sick in the last hour before bed or so. And fortunately/unfortunately I am not interested in eating chocolate at all. This will be helpful with all that junk in our house over the next few weeks.

Oh, I was sad that I had to pack up all my jeans because I could no longer do them up but then I realized I could just wear them with long shirts and the button and zipper undone. Perfect. We'll see how long that lasts! The jeans above are my favourite and I got them 65% off:)

Next week Tuesday is a big day for me. In the morning, I have a midwife appointment and hopefully get to hear the heartbeat. In the afternoon, I go to Chilliwack to the TMJ clinic to hopefully hear what we can do about my jaw! Eating anything that requires more than three chews is difficult and painful.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and a safe evening:)
Love, Louise
