Nothing to do but wait

Here's a 36-week shot. I'm home sick from school today. Body aches from a bad cold + giant pregnant belly = misery. I guess I'm glad I'm getting this cold out of the way before the baby gets here. I have no more tests to do at the doctor's office and I'm all pre-registered at the hospital. I will feel much more organized and ready, though, when we get our dresser/changing table next weekend and I can put the clothes and diapers and stuff in order.

Can you tell from the picture that I have crazy "mask of pregnancy?" I thought I was just getting a lot of freckles from swimming but I changed my mind since I use lots of waterproof sunscreen on my face when I swim and I've never had freckles on my face before. I look like a reverse raccoon with white circles around my eyes. Ack. Supposedly it will fade after the birth. I sure hope so.

November Roses

Despite our previous neighbor's vicious hacking-down of the rose bushes behind our duplex, one or two of them have come back and here are some of the beauties we're getting now. Roses in November - weird. Even weirder... I haven't killed this bush yet.

In the meantime, ski resorts in Tahoe are opening up already. Wish we could get out to Royal Gorge - maybe we'll see if we can take the baby for a snowshoe trip before the end of spring :)

Happy Halloween

We didn't get many trick-or-treaters this year, maybe because the World Series was on during prime candy hours? More candy for us, woo!

Here are some shots of the baby's costume and our cool jack-o-lanterns. 5 weeks to go before our due date! Better yet, 3.5 weeks before I stop teaching :)

Here's one of the bibs I've been making. Gave this one to a friend. They're fun and quick!
