Catching up..

Because I've been with school and showstoppers, I didn't get a chance to postthings about this wonderful fall season. First evernt: Halloween Maddie dressed up as Cinderella and we (Nana, Maddie and myself) went to the Ward Halloween Party. I'm really startiing to enjoy my ward. They had a costume parade, which she loved, and then we went trick or treating around the church. It was really fun!




Nate and I were just too busy to do our Halloween Party this year so instead we carved pumpkins and went trick-or-treating with the Barnes Family. Nate went as a Mad scientist, I was a vampire (or pregnant Bella) and Maddie was again Cinderella.



Second Event: Thanksgiving This year Nate and I did Thanksgiving with just our family! It was so neat to make everything from scratch and it also gave me a lot of appreciatation for how much effort my mom always puts into Thanksgiving. We invited our moms to enjoy the meal. It was a great day! I have picture of the dinner hiwever, they are on Nate's phone so I'll post them later.
The Last event: School
This semester was a huge milestone for me because I actually passed Math 1010. This might seem like nothing to most people, however I struggle with Math like no other subject. Give me a 30 page paper to write and I will have it done in the morning. But logarithims and quadratic equations are another story. I've never worked so hard in ANY other class. And with my B- posted online there's no way they can take that away from me. I'm also official a Junior at WSU. It only took four years but it's worth it! I can't wait to be done. Anyway, here's a picture of me hard at work in graphic design.
Another class that required a lot of hard work and time was Weber State News. Here's the video of when I produced and was the Lead Anchor. It's crazy how much I hate the news after having this class LOL.

Nate also had quite the difficult semester and I think we are both relieve I will be taking next semester off. Till Summer!

Growing Babe!

This pregnancy I've taken pictures a little differently. The first one we had me stand by the calendar and pose sideways. This time I've just taken a picture of my belly. I think it's neat to see the change.
