The first week of November we went on a much needed vacation to Virginia, Atlantic City NJ, NYC, and Washington DC. We were gone for 9 days and is was so hard to come home. Here are just a couple of pictures.

It was so beautiful up there. This picture does not do the scenery justice.The trees were so beautiful.

We went to this awesome restaurant called the Melting Pot. It's a fondue restaurant. We started out with a cheese fondue and a salad. Then we had our entree, lobster tail, steak, shrimp, ravioli, pork tenderloin, salmon, chicken, and vegetables. They gave us a boiling pot of broth and we cooked our own food. This restaurant is genius. They charge $100 for you to cook your own food. Then we had dessert! It was a turtle chocolate fondue. We dipped rice crispy treats, pound cake, cheesecake, brownies, marshmallows, strawberries, and bananas.

While we were there we got to visit with my aunt and uncle and grandma for a couple of days. This is me, James, grandma, Aunt Barbara, Eliana, and Uncle Marlon having dinner.

It's been waaaaay too long!

I am as horrible at keep up with this as I thought I would be. So much has happened in the last four months! James and I are expecting our first child, a little girl. I am due March 31st and can't wait to meet Olivia Paige. So that makes me about 22 weeks, 5 months (according to the books).

Everything has been pretty good this first half. I had about 6 weeks of morning sickness. Not anything I couldn't handle. I have been eating more fruit, especially green apples, and sour stuff. But I do think that James has had some sympathy symptoms. For about 3 or 4 weeks he had to have ice cream, either Dairy Queen or Sonic, late at night. At about 9:55 he'd ask if I thought he had enough time to make it to Dairy Queen which closes at 10.

The only thing that has been really tough is the fatigue. I am still always so tired. I used to say up till about 11 or 12 but now I am ready for bed at like 7. But I guess it could be worse.

This is one of my favorites.

I cannot believe how amazing God is. Did you see that little foot? I just don't know how anyone could abort these precious little miracles. But that's a whole other post.

Here is her profile. I think she has her daddy's nose.
