Baby Brown ... ready or not, here you come!

So, some of you may already know the very exciting news that Preston and I are expecting a baby in June. We just found out today that the due date is June 20th. We are so excited! We'll have to be sure to keep the blog updated. Sometimes we're not the best at that :) Anyway, the good news besides the baby itself is that I have not had any problems with morning sickness yet! That makes me really happy. Heavenly Father does love me! :) hehe. Well, that's the news! Yay for us!

M&Ms, Voting, Football and Mr. Potato Head

We had so many trick-or-treaters on Halloween it was crazy!! They ate all our candy (one piece each) and there were still more! It was a good thing that Staci and eric brought their leftover candy so we could give that away! Thanks guys! It was fun though. We saw lots of fun costumes too. Some of the usual ghosts and goblins, some princesses, fairies and those sort of things. But, I think my favorite were our costumes - M&Ms :) It was pretty great. We were both fat, mostly round M&Ms.

The best part was having Heidi & Jake, Ka & Jeff, Staci & eric and Kelly & Nick over for a chili dinner, catching up and a movie. I loved seeing all of you! We have been blessed with so many great friends! We were going to watch a movie on the wall through the projector that Preston borrowed from his seminary. Before we decided what we wanted to watch, we browsed the cable to see if there was anything good on TV, but pretty much the only one we found was Night of the Living Dead, which Heidi and Jake had just watched recently and said it was pretty lame. So, we decided to watch Clue on the projector, but we left the TV on while we got it set up. By the time we were ready to go with Clue, most of us wanted to at least know what happened in the movie, so we ended up just watching that. Heidi and Jake were right ... it was lame :) Everybody died! Well, now we at least know what happens I guess.

On saturday we drove to the county building in Salt Lake to vote. We only had to wait about 45 minutes, so it wasn't too bad. Then we headed to Preston's parent's house to watch the Y and U football games on the projector. Rob came to join us and we had a little party in the basement. It was a pretty great set up. the projector had the screen showing on the entire wall! We had lots of snacks and a yummy salmon dinner! I enjoyed watching the Y game, and I liked the first 2 quarters of the U's game. After that, I took a little nap :)

Rob brought over his homemade costume to show it off. It was so cool! It was Mr. Potato Head, complete with angry eyes just in case :) He made it out of paper mache (I don't really know how to spell that) and it turned out great. He even had the compartment in the back to hold the extra eyes, nose, etc. He won a contest at the U with it!
