We found out last Monday that we are definitely having another BOY! There was no mistaking that. His junk was standing at attention for the world (or rick and myself) to see. If you are thinking, "oh... another boy... that's too bad", don't. We are super excited to add another Jackman boy to the world. Now we just have to wait 20 or so weeks until we get to meet Ace Van Jackman!

If you have been reading my blog, you know that Rick has been out of town A LOT. About 2 weeks ago he was in Cali for a meeting and decided to visit Trigger Happy. He then came home and surprised me with this....

I actually love it. I am not a big fan of tattoos in the slightest, but there is something that screams romantic (if a tattoo can be associated with the word). He said that he got it over his heart because that is where I belong. And the "dot" on the "i" is a flame because I am his flame or because he still holds a torch for me. I feel really loved, which is something I need right now, being pregnant and hormonal and not to mention extremely EMOTIONAL!

We had a great Halloween this year. Crazy, but fun. The boys were Power Rangers, again. Except this year, they are Power Rangers Operation Overdrive. Lucky for us, they come out with a new style every year. Kaleigh was Minnie Mouse dressed as a Pumpkin (I talked her into this one) and Jett was Ratatouille. The top picture was taken at the end of the night, and as you can see, Ratatouille was not having any! He looked so cute though.

In California we used to go to our friends house after trunk-o-treating and eat yummy food at their house. I always looked forward to that. Sitting by the fire, drinking hot chocolate, and just visiting. So, this year I was going to take over and do that here in Utah. Rick flew in from Vegas early that morning and slept pretty much all day. When he woke up, I sent him to Home Depot to get a fire pit. I started preparing a Mexican (yes, I'll admit it) dinner that consisted of enchiladas, rice and beans that took me forever! It turned out great though. We all ate dinner and then all the moms took the kids around the neighborhood while the dads figured out the fire pit. When we got back the fire was burning and the hot chocolate was calling our names. We had a great, tiring, day!
Notice all the "NERDS" that are stuck to the neck of the costume.
Like mother, like Son!

This is what Cade looks like when he says "CHEESE!"

So Serious. He wasn't having the picture taking by this time. He was ready to get into his loot!

While getting ready for school, I told Kaleigh that she could wear make-up if she wanted to. She was very excited! When we were finished putting her hair up, she looked in the mirror and said, "Mom, I don't think I need to wear any make-up. Look how pretty I already look!" I was so proud. I always tell her how beautiful she is and I am glad to see her self confidence is in effect. Hopefully she still feels this way when she gets into High School!
