No Honey, I am NOT getting you one for Christmas

Pictured is John with a propane torch at Neal's surprise birthday party last Saturday. Vince brought the BBQ pit and the torch to speed up the cooking process. John had a little too much fun with the torch. The food was good and nothing caught fire in the process. I was relieved... (Photo taken by John's boss, Brent)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jenni is visiting until Sunday, so John and I both took yesterday off work. We're having a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend and will be doing some cooking later today.

Alex was moving around a lot yesterday. (Maybe it was the Thai food I had for dinner...) It was enough movement for John to feel, which was a first.

John is painting the nursery blue ("Acre Morning"). He already removed the shelves that had been mounted to the wall. I'm attempting to find new places to store things that used to be stored in the bedroom.

The color goes with the Alphabet Soup accessories that I like. We still need to find a crib and dresser, but I have a few options in mind.

November Visitors

Wendy visited November 8-10. We made it to the Alamo, Riverwalk, and La Cantera mall. It was her first trip to Texas. Jenni will be here for Thanksgiving.

I'm 22 weeks along and can feel Alex move now. It took me a while to be sure of the feeling since it is something totally new.

Geek Inside

Since I'm starting to show, Maker Faire on October 18, was a good time to bring out my Geek Inside t-shirt. This annual event in Austin includes DIY robots, crafts, electric cars, and more. It was quite a fun day.
