We carved pumpkins tonight at nanna and poppy's house. We ordered pizza and all carved our own pumpkins. We do this every year and have so much fun! Also, my glucose tolerance test came back normal. So that is really good news. She told me just to watch my sugar and they would retest me. Here are some pumpkin carving pictures-and me at almost 6 months!

I went and saw Dr. Thibault today for my monthly checkup. He did an ultrasound which showed it is definitely a girl. Her name will be Katelynn Michelle Huffman. We will call her Kate. Haley got to come today and watch the ultrasound. Dr. Thibault said everything looked great with the baby. I am so happy for that. I know she will be so precious! It's so exciting to think about the new addition to my wonderful family. I am so blessed and I do not take anything for granted. Unfortunately, I did not pass my glucose screen so I am going in the morning for a 3 hour glucose tolerance test. I'll find out if I have gestational diabetes. I'm really nervous. Everyone please pray for me and baby Kate!
We got to spend the weekend in Monticello at Chris's parents house. We had so much fun. Friday night we went to the high school homecoming game where we watched the Billies beat White Hall. The kids had so much fun. Annabelle was dancing and cheering-it was so cute! Brad and Rhonda and Chad and Julie were in from Texas for their 10 year high school reunion. It was so good to spend time with everyone. Chris caught 2 t-shirts in a row that they were throwing in the stands so each of the kids got one. They were so excited!
Saturday night we went to Hamburg and ate at Chris's aunt Carolyn and uncle Jim's restaurant, The Catfish Inn.(our favorite place to eat when we're in town!) Sunday Chris sang in church. It was wonderful. Baby Kate started moving around as soon as he started singing. It was precious! My mom came down for church and Julie's shower we had that afternoon. The shower was great. So many people came! We had a lot of fun. Julie got so many presents. I can't wait to see baby Mabry! I know she'll be beautiful!

The baby is getting much stronger now and Chris got to feel her kick tonight! It was so exciting. I've been able to feel her for a while now, but this is the first time anyone else has. She was kicking so hard my belly was jumping. It is so exciting. One of her favorite things is to kick me in the bladder.

Ok so this is really late, but I've been so busy! On October 2nd Chris and I went to the pumpkin patch with Blake and his preschool class. We had so much fun! When we got there the kids got to watch pigs race while they had juice and pretzels. Then they went on a hay ride and petting zoo. Then, they got to pick out their own pumpkin. It took Blake less than a minute and he had the cutest little pumpkin! I remember with Haley we would go up and down all the isles and take about 30 minutes before she would find the right one. They played on huge bales of hay with a tunnel inside. Blake loved all of it. I think we are going back on the 25th so Haley and Reese can go.
