With Halloween falling on Sunday this year many communities in our area designated Saturday as the night for festivals and trick-or-treating. As you can see from the pictures, Mackaylan dressed as Princess Ariel and she was beautiful! We had a fun time preparing for the night by adding some curls to her hair and decorating her fingernails with paint and nail stickers. Our first stop was at my Aunt Martha's house where Mackaylan received a treat bag full of special prizes. After that, we headed up the highway to Nana's. It was there we ran into the McCools and I was able to capture the "toothless cousin" shot! Once we made it to my parents we enjoyed dinner and then we took the kiddos trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. So fun!

Mackaylan and I are already enjoying our day off from work/school today. We are planning to spend some time with my mom and just have fun doing our favorite thing- shopping, of course. Tomorrow we have a fun afternoon planned with friends at the annual Pumpking Carving Party. And Sunday will be full of church, family, friends, and preparing for the upcoming week. What's on your weekend to-do list? Have a fantastic Friday!

I'm 15 weeks!
How far along: 15 Weeks
Size of baby: Baby O is the size of an apple!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: ? I'm trying to avoid the scale :)
Maternity Clothes: It just depends. However, maternity pants are a must!
Gender: Can't wait to find out! I go to the dr. next week and will make the ultrasound appointment at that time.
Movement: Pretty sure I have felt the baby "flutter" a few times.
Sleep: I still sleep pretty good, but do have to get up to go to the restroom quite a few times!
What I miss: Nothing! We have been praying for this baby for so long I feel nothing but blessed!
Cravings: I crave different things at different times.
Symptons: A little emotional at times, but DH would argue that that is not pregnancy related. LOL
Best moment this week: No big highlight - it's just just hope it keeps going by so fast!

Mickey's sister, Betsi, scored Panthers vs. Bears tickets for Mickey's birthday. It just so happened that the game fell on the weekend before Mick's birthday so it was perfect! Mickey has been a Chicago Bears fan since he was a little boy. And, of course, I consider myself a Bears fan now too!
Mick and I have been fortunate to be able to watch the Bears play in Atlanta, Chicago, and now Charlotte. I've always heard "3rd times a charm" and that was true in this situation: our 3rd game, but the 1st one where the Bears won! We had a fun time tailgating, watching the game, and spending time with family.
