Weekend Happenings

Mom and Dad visited Clovis this weekend!  They brought with them all of the big items from my Waco shower that I couldn't bring back on the plane in September.  It was so fun getting to see all those cute things all over again!  They also helped with some things that Nick and I, in our compromised states, haven't been able to do, like installing the carseat, rearranging nursery furniture, and other various projects around the house.  I don't know what we would have done without them! 
We also got to go out to the Fall Festival on-base, where they had a static display of the various aircraft that are based at Cannon.  Below is a picture of us with the Predator, which is the aircraft (RPA - remotely piloted aircraft) Nick works with.  I actually got a chance to "fly" the Pred in a training simulator on Friday, during the basewide spouse flights day.  Now I have a much better idea of what Nick does at work all day.
 This year we finally live in a place where we get trick-or-treaters at our house on Halloween!  It's been since 2006, when we lived on- base at Shaw, that we've had trick-or-treaters because people in Columbia apparently just don't do it.  We decided yesterday at about 3pm to actually dress up so our costumes are remnants from college functions.  Nick and Finlay were escaped prisoners from Alcatraz, a costume resurrected from Pi Phi pledge dance circa 2002.  I was a football player in Nick's Baylor Line jersey.  One of our trick-or-treaters asked me if Baylor won on Saturday, and I was elated to say yes!

We have a big week this week - today we go back to Amarillo for Nick's surgery follow-up, and on Wednesday we have Baby H's next Dr. appointment.  I'm at 35 weeks, one week off from how they usually schedule these things, so I don't quite know what to expect.  We'll be sure to keep you up to date, though!

Love the costumes!! You'll be glad to know that Trick-or-Treating isn't dead. We had 100 little treaters come through our new neighborhood last night. That's in ADDITION to TRUMC's trunk-or-treat. Happy almost birthday!

Nick & Finlay are quite the pair! Love the black-under-the-eyes touch. Mom
