We had a great Thanksgiving! Mike & Ashley drove up 9 hrs to spend the holidays with us and it was really fun catching up with them- We haven't seen them since last Christmas! Michael & I successfully cooked our first turkey (smoked, and it turned out delicious) and a combination of Pilon/Nulk traditional sides. Then we went to Michael's commander's house for dessert and played trivial pursuit for hrs. The next day we spent hanging out with Mike and Ashley, just visiting, playing the Wii, and then we went mini golfing and out for hibachi. Mike & Mike won some games at the arcade in the mini golf place and turned in their tickets for little washable tattoos. So Michael decided he had to tattoo my belly and take a pic! So here is my enormous 8-month belly with Michael's tattoos. On Saturday Michael made a big pancake breakfast and then our friends had to head back to kansas- We were sorry to see them go! All in all it's been a very relaxing holiday! I bought some bandannas for the doggies, above is a picture of Bella showing it off. Needless to say the dogs were not too excited about the bandannas and stood frozen until we took them off. We used our china and crystal and nambe bowls for the first time, it was very exciting. I'll leave you with some pictures from the weekend. Only 23 days till people start coming for Christmas, Michael & I can hardly wait!

30 Week Ultrasound

I had an ultrasound yesterday morning to check on the baby. Every looks good according to the ultrasound technician. He was curled up in a ball the whole time- literally his feet were above his head! He's very flexible right now. We got a couple cute pictures of him- his face is starting to look more like baby, with little chubby cheeks rather than just a skeleton. He had his hands on his face most of the time, and he was sucking on his fingers too. You can see him sucking on the fingers in the profile shot above. Apparently this guy is above average in size for weight, but whose surprised by that?- he's 3 pounds 11 ounces which is in the 75th percentile for weight at 30 weeks or something like that. It was really fun for Mike and I to get to see him again before he comes out! He got the hiccups for awhile which was cute. Anyways enjoy pics, if you click on them they enlarge.

The Lost Maples

This weekend Mike had a four day so on Sunday around 9:30am we decided spur of the moment to go camping! Michael had been wanting to visit Lost Maples Park where the trees were to be in peak color. So we packed up the tent, a cooler of food, the dogs and headed out on the 4.5 hr drive down there! The trip there was quite picturesque-especially this one ranch with buffalo! When we arrived at the park at about 4:30 we expected it to be quite deserted...boy were we wrong! There was a huge line just to get a pass to enter the park...

Fortunately Michael snagged the last nice camping slot (apparently we were supposed to make reservations). Thank goodness we got this one that had water, electric and bathrooms. Otherwise the camping would have been a mile trek in. Here's a picture of our campsite, Mike is actually in the tent rolling up sleeping bags. We had a fun evening of a campfire, roasting hot dogs and making s'mores. As soon as we hopped into our tent (dogs and all) it started to rain! We stayed pretty dry in the tent though. Overall it was a fun time--probably our last chance to go camping before Baby Nulk arrives! I'll leave you with a few more pictures from our trip. Sadly it was pretty rainy so we didn't get to hike around as much as we planned the next day and a wind storm had hit the park a few days earlier blowing off most of the leaves- but we found a few maples in peak color.
