At our last appointment we had to get an ultrasound because I was measuring small. Everything looked perfect, thankfully! They said I am probably just measuring small because he is sitting really, really low. They estimated his weight to be 4 lbs 3 oz, which is just below average. He seems to be growing quickly though! Anyway, here's the bump now...
Quentin and I were going to do our Christmas on Christmas Eve when I got off work, but we got a little anxious and opened presents the day before. I got a camcorder that I LOVE along with some accessories, some scentsy, and a new timer for our kitchen. Quentin got the video game he has been waiting for (Black Ops), a tool bag, socks, a new white shirt for church and a flashlight. So I would say we both did pretty well this year :)
I had to work Christmas this year, but I didn't go in until 2 so we did Christmas with my parents and Aliisa Christmas morning. We opened presents and ate a really good breakfast and then everyone took a nap. Later that afternoon Quentin and Dad went to see a movie, so I think it ended up being a pretty good Christmas even though I had to work. And that means I don't have to work the next two years for Christmas. Next year will be Brady's first Christmas :)

We got there Wednesday night and then Thursday we had Thanksgiving at Grandma Moore's. The food was yummy of course and it was fun to see everyone. Someone brought a little puggle puppy and she was SOOOO cute! Grandma Moore had just had chemo, so she wasn't feeling the greatest, but still seemed to be doing pretty well. Here's a picture of me and Grandma... Friday we were crazy and got up at 2:30 to do the Black Friday sales. We got a luggage set for a really good deal at Kohl's but it was insane and the line was forever long there to check out so we left Quentin with our stuff and headed to Target. Target was also really crazy. I don't remember it ever being so crazy here for Black Friday. Then we went to breakfast at Denny's and went back to bed for a while. That afternoon we did the Hendrickson Thanksgiving which was more delicious food and then we went to get family pictures. I'm sure it was a lot of work for the photographer to get so many people, but she did a good job. After that we all gathered again for games, but I was so tired so I didn't end up staying very late.
Saturday some of us went to a craft show and I got a cute Christmas decoration. I'm a sucker when it comes to Christmas decorations! Then we went to see Grandma Moore again. After that just our little group of Moore family got together to exchange our Christmas gifts. It's definitely the most fun to watch Patrick since he gets excited just to open any present. We all got to enjoy Cafe Rio after that...Mmmmmm wish we had one here. Mom made us aprons and Megan made one for Mom and they turned out really cute!
Sunday we came home. It was fun to see everyone, but it's always nice to get back home and I definitely missed my bed. Hard to believe the next time all the Moore girls will be together will be for Brady's blessing!

We didn't really do much to celebrate Halloween this year, but we did carve some pumpkins with the Jacobs! I was feeling pretty lazy though, so I just let everyone else carve and I picked out pumpkin seeds. Ours ended up looking a little like a Chinese man. They are not quite as intricate as last years, but we still had fun! I didn't take many pictures, so I mostly just stole these from Karen's post...thanks Karen!

I had a Dr. appointment today and everything is still looking good. Also I am mostly past the morning sickness junk (I think). So other than the normal aches and pains of pregnancy (back pain, frequent bathroom trips, trouble sleeping, out of control acne, general discomfort, etc) I am healthy and so is baby Brady. He's a pretty active little guy and if he's facing the right way, I can even SEE his kicks now sometimes. So fun!
Then we stopped at the outlets again before we headed to Alexa's birthday party. I definitely got A LOT of baby clothes, but I got pretty good deals so I'm proud of my purchases. Alexa's party was at Miner Mike's, which is like a giant playplace mixed with an arcade full of fun games that Quentin and I teamed up on to get the most tickets possible...all to benefit our nieces and nephews of course! There is even a little roller coaster inside that made baby Rex jump each time it started. Cassie did a great job planning the party (as always) and we think she could make a career out of party planning. After the party we headed to this really yummy pizza place. They had the best cheese sticks I have ever had in my life. Everything was sooooo tasty! Thanks for planning such a fun weekend for us Cassie! The birthday girl, opening up a present.
Quentin was brave enough to go through what I like to call "Tube City" with Preston. (And he survived!)
This was my attempt to get a picture of baby Garrett's smile...this is more of a half smile. When he REALLY smiles it takes up his whole face and is totally irresistible

Saturday we just had a relaxing day at the beach and then headed to the OC Fair. We watched the pig races and the chinese acrobats and ate some yummy food. Kirsten, Quentin and Kirk tried chocolate covered bacon, but I opted out of that. We also tried fried avocados, which were pretty good and fried twinkies...delicious! We also had corndogs and funnel cakes. Yum! There was also a petting zoo where a little deer kept eating people's shorts (you can't really tell in the picture, but it was funny).Sunday we went to church, came home and took naps and then tried to go tide pooling. Unfortunately, the rocks were closed because the waves were too high.
Monday was our two year anniversary and also our travel day. Not the best way to celebrate, especially when our layover in Denver lasted MUCH longer than it was supposed to because the plane was delayed two hours! We didn't get into KC until 11 something. Luckily, Michelle did not abandon us and waited patiently to pick us up. Thanks Michelle!
We had so much fun and I really wish that Kirsten and Kirk lived closer so we could see them more. Thanks Kirksten for letting us stay with you, entertaining us, driving us around, and feeding us!

Quentin has finished his summer semester and I'm proud to say that he got all A's! So now he has a little break before he starts at his 3 colleges in the fall. We'll be keeping busy though. This weekend we'll go to Kansas City for two of our new nephew's baby blessings (Garrett and Rex), and then next week we get to take our little trip to California! Woohoo! We're excited for both trips!!!!!!!

Ok, here you go. I know there are few people out there who really want to see this. This is mom trying to do a minute to win it game. She also stated that because Quentin video taped, she said to Quentin I quote "I used to like you". Ouch! Hope you enjoy
