Happy Thanksgiving!

i love thanksgiving! it might just be my favorite holiday! it's hard to pick one. it's just so great to hang out with family all day and do a whole lot of nothing!

this year i'm thankful for..
my dear husband, and our sweet little girl on the way.
vacation! we just got back from san diego, and had a great time. will post on that later.
our family. i love each and every one of them, in their own special way. some very special. haha.
sleeping in! although i'm having a hard time this morning.
our cozy bed to lay in, even when i can't sleep =)
my job and kyle's job!
our dog, who is a goofball, and most of the time i don't really like. who is snoring like an old man right now.
yummy food, which i am about to enjoy in just a few short hours. i've been craving some sweet potatoes!
the fall.
and maternity jeans. haha! they are like wearing sweats all the time!

so happy thanksgiving everyone! enjoy your days with family and friends!!

happy birthday dad!

we are so blessed to have such a great dad!!

here he is at one of the fireman competitions. (these are some of the only pictures i found of him alone!)

thanks for everything you have done and still do daily for us!
we love you so much!

happy birthday!!

(technically, his birthday is on november 9th, and i know it's the 10th now, but i'm still awake, so it counts)

we heart fall

around the nelson household, we are soo glad to see fall come around each year!

i don't know if it's because the summers in texas can be exhausting, take your breath away, so dang hot, or if it's just a nice change to get all your favorite sweaters and coats out again.

ok, so the sweaters and coats may be my favorite part.

but i do also love me some pumpkin spice candles.

and leaving the windows open 24/7, and waking up to your room being all crisp and cool in the morning.

to celebrate fall, we got together with danny and chelle one night to carve pumpkins and eat pizza. we found out that we actually had quite the pumpkin carving skills!

my pumpkin, the haunted house

kyle's cute little ghost

danny's creepster peaking thru the blinds

and chelle definitely won the cutest with her little monster!

we weren't super creative or festive, so we didn't dress up for halloween this year. instead, we hung out at heidi and brent's house and helped man the trick or treat station on their porch for the insane number of trick or treaters!!! (i was going to say insane number of kids, but that doesn't apply, because you would be surprised how many adults were out for free candy. or maybe i was just surprised).

so we've kept it pretty low key, just hanging out with family!

happy fall yall!
