We finished the day off with a round of mini golf and some water slides....oh and the buffet:) I didn't gain any weight the last 3 wks so I treated myself. I got my money worth, don't you worry!
really here I am 40wks....check out the foot or leg up by the right rib. I'm sure this is the last picture of her in my belly...bittersweet!
We did sneak in a "babymoon" to San Diego. We enjoyed a nice weekend away with no kids. It has been awhile since we have went away alone and I'm sure it will be awhile till we do it again.
I'm delivering at a really neat hospital (so I'm told)
I have never been there so I thought I'd better take a last minute tour of the place.
(on the elevator headed up to the nursery, they couldn't wait to see the babies)
The girls brought their babies too....
We made a girls night out of it. Got dressed, went downtown, stopped off at hospital and then out for frozen yogurt!
My biggest craving this pregnancy....frozen yogurt! With mango on top, sometimes I feel like granola. I usually send my husband at about 9pm at night when he's really tired..he doesn't complain only I do when he comes back with mandarin oranges instead of mango's on top! How do you get those mixed up! I guess beggars can't be choosers...I'll forgive him. So this time I got my own yogurt with granola and mango's. Fallon even felt like some kiwi.
Last week I didn't have energy, so we spent most of our days in our pj's or those that wanted to just wear their underwear did haha (don't worry I wasn't one of them)... we played games and painted. I asked them questions about Fallon, how much they think she will weigh etc and wrote them down to put in Fallon's baby book. They wanted to paint my belly but we didn't get around to that yet.
We had many hands picking berries...except Faith. She is deathly afraid of bees. There was a ton of bees so she wouldn't go near the berries. The other kids stuck their hands right into swarms of bees....
We went home and made jam and muffins...
I love this picture below!
I let my kids eat berries without washing them and get dirty feet....

Slacking at the discipline. Not something I'm proud of:/
The tooth fairy was out of cash so she had to borrow $ from the oldest boy in the house. (Come on Mom get with it!) Then the tooth fairy felt bad and tried to make the $2.00 look fancy by adding glitter, stickers and a bow made out of floss. Don't be fooled, that is a fake $100.00 she glued the letter too:)
It's all about presentation when they look under that pillow right?
Landen kept telling everyone he got $100.00.
Farrah would argue and say, "No, it's fake!"
Another thing I'm not proud of....Then Landen came to me saying, "Mooooom, Farrah called me the "S" word." So I asked, "What "S" word?" (they don't know the real "s" word) He seriously said to me, "she called me "dumb."
I just looked at him and wanted to say, "welllll" but I figured I should deal with the situation instead of telling him to show her who's boss or something along those lines...
(Lord help me in these last few weeks!!!!!)
Note to self: go over letters and sounds with Landen again!
my brother got engaged.
It's so nice to see my brother so happy again and Jamie will be a great step-mom to my nephews.
bridesmaid, groomsmen, flower girls, ring bearer, jr. bridesmaid and jr. groomsmen. I think we pretty much make the wedding party ha!
Fallon will be about 5 weeks old at the wedding.
Which means I will be 5 weeks postpartum eeeek!
We had to get our dresses ordered right away. 9 months pregnant trying to figure out what size to order. I made the mistake of bringing these 2 into the dressing room with me....
We dropped the kids off at Grandmas and spoiled her as the only child for a day!
Thank you to the Grandma's and Aunt Brianna because Mommy was slacking this year in planning a party.
She wanted to celebrate Hello Kitty style....
We took her to Knotts Berry Farm....
Finley's birthday lasted all weekend. On Sunday we went to Great Grandma's for another little party with all the cousins. Aunt Brianna make cupcakes.
Finley thanked her with a makeover:)
Even Berlyn got make-up
Berlyn just wanted to eat the make-up
she loved all the special attention!
blowing out the candles...
Finley and Berlyn...
they asked if they could wear lipstick because it was a special day.
Only child for a day!
The kids and I decorated the downstairs so that when Finley woke up it was all pretty for her:) The kids each gave her cards and presents they got for her with their own money.
I'm "free" 3 now!
So I'm 38 weeks.
Bye for now, maybe next time I will be posting pictures of Fallon:)
