Election Day

Today Samantha got to participate in her first presidential election!  So exciting.  Chris had to work today so we didn't head out to the polls until around 3:45.

Here is Samantha all set to go to the polls.  Thankfully, although the line was long, it moved rather quickly.  All in all we were there for about 40 minutes.  Samantha did great walking through the line and staying by us.  One lady was there with her dog which Samantha loved.  Once it was our turn to vote, Samantha "helped" me and I think she really enjoyed it.  She got to hand our little electronic card to the exit guy which she loved and then she received an "I Voted" sticker.  Hooray Samantha!

And finally, a belly picture of mine!  Today I am 34w3d.

We will be eager to hear who wins the first presidential election of Samantha's life!!

So I said I would get back into posting and here I am 2.5 months later without a single post.  Whoops!!  Maybe this time I really will get back into it.  Anyways, last Wednesday was Halloween and since Samantha has been super obsessed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse lately, we decided to dress her up as Minnie.  She was thrilled!!  Her way of expressing MMCH is by saying "Hot Dog" since they do the Hot Dog Dance at the very end.  The second we took out the dress she kept saying hot dog over and over again.  She loves anything Mickey related.  It's really rather cute.  So, without further adieu, here is our little Minnie Mouse.

Chris and I took Samantha trick-or-treating to two houses in our neighborhood and then Samantha and I went out with some playgroup friends while Chris handed out candy.  Samantha had such a great time trick-or-treating and I think she loved that she got to do it with friends.  She was right there with them running up and down the sidewalks and driveways.  I could just feel the excitement radiating off of her and it really makes me want to cry.  After all it took for us to get pregnant with her, you appreciate all these moments so much more.  Seeing her so happy and enjoying life so much really makes my heart melt.
