It really is true. I seem to have an excuse for NOT blogging, every time I blog. So for this blog post, the excuse is LACK of pictures! I just haven't really been photographing lately. There is three months left in the life of the 3 Evans', and we are soaking it in. At this point, I am not rushing this pregnancy, at all, unlike the first time! But this time seems to be going by so much faster. Here is the most recent belly picture... taken at 5 months. Today I am at 6 months. So I have gotten a lot bigger. YAY!!!
We had my parents over 2 weekends ago. They have come to the realization, that they can't go more then 6 weeks without seeing us! And by us, I mean NORA! The constructed Noras Halloween costume, so that was their excuse for coming. To make a special delivery! I have to save the pictures for the BIG Disney reveal, but I will say, BEAUTIFUL! I am worried that the "Imagineers" are going to want to steal the design of the costume! It is amazing, and we can't thank Lulu and Papa enough for their hours upon hours of crafting.
While they were here, they took good care of me too. They took me for my Reuben that I have been craving, and then they prepared Thanksgiving Dinner for me. Two of the things I have been craving!!! It was so nice to family over. Life does get sad here, being so far from everybody I know. So, mom and dad, thank you for the sacrifices you make, to see us. We appreciate it far more then we could tell you.
The other nice things about having them here, is Joel and I get to get out! We took a day trip to the Washington DC temple. It was Joels first time there. Ahhh... it is amazing! And very special to have that day with my husband.
The only other thing that I have pictures of, is Nora and I at the zoo last week. It was our first time to the Norfolk Zoo, and it was super great! We have so much fun together! It feels like I am missing the catch! WHATS THE CATCH? Why do I get to have so much fun?
I don't imagine that I will have a blog post again this week. We realized this weekend, that we are leaving next Monday to go to Disney, and we haven't really planned our trip. It's not like us! We aren't "Fly off the seat of our pants" type of people, but this might be that sort of trip. Either way, it will be fun, and exciting. Mickey is waiting for us, and more importantly, Tink and Nora have some very important business to take care of! Stay tuned!!!

That's right. I said it! Hate to face the music, but it is really gone. It seems as though, even if I don't have a kid in school, we still get a summer break. We get visitors, we spend time at the beach, we just chill all the time! And now, that has ceased! Well, we do have some familiar visitors coming over for the weekend, more to post about them later! But Nora and I have signed up for three play groups! Story time! And a MOMS group, that I get to drop Nora off at to play, while I get some mommy time. So, our life is about to be very busy. I have been WAY relaxed on the blogging side. I am trying to spend a lot of time with Nora, and working with her in several different areas. She is the joy in my life, and that is really all I have to blog about. Oh, and the amazing daddy she has, that will run to 7-11 in the middle of the night, because I want peanut butter cups, and will make me one of his amazing salads after he has already laid down to rest at night. Ahhh... he is great! The baby boy is doing great. I love him already. He is very gentle when he kicks, and is so respectful of me when I am sleeping. I just can't wait to meet him. I have a good feeling that he is going to melt my heart all over again. I went to the dr. yesterday, and the dr. described him as very comfy cozy. I thought that was cute! The great news she gave me was... 4lbs. is all that I have gained! WOO HOO!! I think each one of those lbs was gained in the last month, because, I have been feeling so great. I don't remember my cravings being this out of control when I was pregnant with Nora. I do remember eating chili dogs all the time! This time all I want is THANKSGIVING DINNER! And NYC Katz's Deli Reuben sandwich! All things that I can't run out at get, or just whip up. But we are managing! Sorry I don't have pictures today, I haven't taken my camera out in about 2 weeks! The camera needed a vacation too. It is going to be just as busy as we are! We are also going to Disney in two weeks. It is going to be great! See you later!!! Soon... hopefully!!
