So thanks to a friend of ours, Doug was able to receive a blessing last night that he might be able to have the confidence and comfort he needs for his big test today. This comprehensive exam is made to be harder than his PT boards...and he HAS to pass them in order to even take the boards. So no pressure on his part!
All I can say is that I know he will do fine, and I'm proud that he has made it this far. Good luck on your big test babe, I'm at home praying for you!

We spent our first night and the Anniversary Inn in down town Salt Lake. What a cool experience that was. If any of you have the opportunity to stay at an Anniversary Inn, do. Their rooms are so cool! Our room was called the Room with a View. And what a spectacular view it was. The bay windows overlooked all of the Salt Lake Valley. We drove to Vegas the next day and stayed at the Mandalay Bay hotel...total rip off. And then that next morning we drove to California. We stayed at the most gorgeous Marriott hotel in Dana Point that overlooked the harbor. I want to go back there so bad. It was beautiful. You could see the ocean from our room. The only place we visited was Catalina Island, other than that, we spent most of it together!!

Doug, I love you and couldn't be happier with where we are at right now. I'm so excited to see where the next five years will take us. Happy Anniversary babe!

For the past couple of days I've had the feeling to remove the TV off of Drew's dresser and put it in the garage. Well, last night, I hear a huge crash and the scream of death. That's right my friends, the TV fell off the dresser and landed on Drew's head. Apparently he was trying to get his pajamas out of his dresser and the drawer was stuck. So he pulled hard, and down came the TV.
"Way to go mom, nice listening you did." I felt like crap last night because I could have prevented that from happening, and now Drew's head has a massive bruise. Luckily that's all it was. Can you say mother of the year?!!

Preston had better be good to me and not come until way before the movie or after. I've already bought my ticket and I'm not going to eat it!!

I can't tell you how over I am being pregnant. And apparently I look like I should have popped weeks ago. I have had 8 people in the last two days tell me just how I look...huge. On Saturday, I was walking into the grocery store, (still in the parking lot), when a man pulls up in front of me, rolls down his window, (mind you he has his kids in the car too), and the first thing he says is, "Let me guess, you're having twins?!" I just laughed politely and told him that I wished that was my excuse, and then he says, "Oh wow, you poor thing." The lady walking walking beside me was appalled he would stop and say that. And then, while grocery shopping, one of the workers walked by me and said the same thing, "You're having twins, right?" Again, I tell him no (which I should just play along with it), and he tells me, "That's some good stuff then, some really good stuff." I mean, come on! I know I'm a massive cow right now, but you don't have to say things like that. Don't people know, (especially men, since they are the ones asking me these questions...Women know better), that you don't say things like that to a pregnant woman? When you're this far along, you don't feel pretty at all, let alone comfortable, and then people have the nerve to tell you that you look massive and hoped you wouldn't last until your due date.
Although, I must say, that when women say something to me it's, "Oh honey, I certainly don't envy you." Thank you, thank you very much people. When we went trick-or-treating, a guy asked me if I was in costume, and his wife looked at him and says, "Oh dear, you can pull that off, she's definitely pregnant, that ain't no costume." WHATEVER PEOPLE!!
All I can say is that I'm glad I only have 28 days left, and then maybe I can actually go somewhere without people telling me how massive I am.
Thanks for the chance to vent.

A couple weekends ago, we went to Howell's Pumpkin Patch and let Drew pick out a pumpkin. He picked one out, but wouldn't carry it, it was too dirty! Then he got to play in their little kid area. He drove little tractors, (with dad's help), and slid down a slide. Doug went down the slide too, but he had to lay down because it was all enclosed! Then we did this maze that was called the Left Turn Only Maze. You could only make left turns (as the name indicates) to find your way out. Doug and Drew made it, but I gave up in the end and headed out to meet up with them. After that we headed home.
Then on Halloween, our ward put on a chili cook off and a Trunk-or-Treat. Doug and I decided to dress up this year and went as the Juno characters. I of course was Juno, and Doug was Paulie Bleeker! Without him the costumes would not have been a success. He looked awesome! Thanks babe for dressing up!
After we got home from our ward party, Drew was so energized. He put on Doug's wrist bands and head band and had to wear them around. In fact, he still puts them on. He thinks they are the coolest!
