We're home!

We got home late Tuesday night. It was the busiest 10 days of my life I think. Here's a little bit of what we did: Carve Pumpkins, buy a house, got said home inspected, Halloween, painted a room for my mom, had a birthday party for Jake, had a birthday party for my mom, Troy drove to Colorado to watch the BYU game with his dad, Troy and I stayed at the Anniversary Inn for our anniversary, (which was yesterday and which we both forgot until last night at about 9 when he was already at work!) saw Makenna Paige Owens be born (to Kenny and Cherice) bought all new appliances for our new kitchen. One of the highlights of our trip: Troy was in Colorado and I was staying at the hotel with the kids. At 12:00 in the morning, the fire alarm went off throughout the hotel. So, I had to get 3 crying kids dressed, and out of the hotel. It was not fun. We had to sit in the lobby for about an hour while the firemen checked out the hotel. It was pretty much horrible. To make it worse, once they sent us back to our room, the alarm went off again at about 2:30a.m. Luckily, it turned off after about 5 minutes. I was the grouchiest pregnant woman anyone had every seen! Trust me! WOW! That was our week! Oh, a helpful tip for flying: barf bags make great puppets! Just bring markers or crayons! It kept Jake busy decorating it for about 25 minutes! Kristin thought we were flying on "American Air Lions" I wonder what she is envisioning in her head...Kyle thought it would be great to holler: TOUCHDOWN when we landed...he got a few giggles. Oh, and if you're ever seated in an isle row next to a pregnant lady, offer to let her stand up and stretch her legs! You should have seen my cankles at the end of the flight! WHEW! I hada doctor appointment today...nothing happening. Still the same as I was 5 weeks ago! AUGHHH! I am having the baby in 3 weeks from today though! Pray the time goes by fast! See, and you all thought I would have the baby on the plane! :)

So, was the fire alarm a real thing, or did some idiot just pull it? That totally stinks and totally figures since you were by yourself! Happy Anniversary! Is this 8 or 9? Me and Arwen are still working on Jake's birthday creation...tell him we haven't forgotten!!

I don't know about the fire alarm. I am assuming a false alarm. This is 9 years for Troy and I. Crazy, huh?

Yeah--you're practically old timers now :)
