Tomorrow we're heading out for a few days to visit friends and see the sights of Newport, Rhode Island. Pray we have safe travel and warm weather. We hope to visit some lighthouses, mansions and the beautiful coast. Should have some great pictures when we return!

This time, other than the reminder of not feeling well, I've somewhat forgotten about it. The kid's in the oven for another few months still and when time's up, it'll come out! So it's funny how non-focused on it I am this time. It's amazing to think I'm halfway through already, 20 weeks now. So things are going just fine - like I said, other than not feeling well. Sometimes I feel almost OK, other times I feel yucky. I can usually gauge how I'm feeling by if I cook dinner or not. I had about 3 weeks of throwing up at the beginning & a few random times since, but nothing recently. I think at least in part because of that, I've gained only a little bit of weight so far. (Hooray!!) So maybe I won't gain 50 lbs. this time! I haven't had nearly the heartburn I had last time - at least not yet. I have started getting it a little off & on, especially in the evening. Last week I came down with a nasty cold, so lately I've been more focused on trying to breathe than bothering to relieve any heartburn. Also no swelling so far this time.
I'm showing a little bit. I'm into maternity pants for comfort but still can wear a few regular pants. I'll post some pictures when there's enough there to be worth showing. We have an ultrasound scheduled for the end of this month for an 'anatomic scan' as my little doctor's form says. Hopefully the baby will cooperate and not be too modest. I'm sure I'll post again after that!

Had a fabulous time at the Pumpkin Patch this morning. Madison and I met up with about 8 other moms with little ones (& 5 of the moms are pregnant) to enjoy one of the last beautiful Fall days. I wish I had gotten a group shot... but try to get over a dozen kids & toddlers 5 & under to hold still all at once! I could barely even get a good shot of Madison! She was all over the place - she loved being out waddling around the pumpkins. Here are a few shots of the fun -- I will put the rest of my photos on Picasa, especially for those who were there that want to see the rest.

And then they voted again. And the second time around, he voted FOR the bailout. Basically Matt came home that day and said, "Well I guess I might as well start looking for a new job." The polls are very close with the Democrat running against Randy, and both Matt & I are convinced Randy's decision to vote in favor of the bailout will cost him the election -- and thus Matt's job. If that happens, we know the Lord will provide something else for Matt. We're not exactly looking forward to having go through the job hunt process, especially in this 'booming' economy, but we also knew it was a possiblity when he took this job.
So keep us in prayer if you think of it - that we won't worry and that the Lord will guide Matt's steps in whatever happens. And of course, pray for our country especially as Election Day approaches. What a mess we're in. I think of the vision and sacrifice of our Founding Fathers and think how horrified they would be to see things that are happening in this country today. May the heritage of their courage and patriotism remain in our hearts and homes, no matter how sour the rest of the country goes.
