Cornbelly's Pumpkin Patch

We had a free night as a whole family so we decided to head up to Cornbelly's Pumpkin Patch at Thanksgiving Point. We didnt go last year, i dont remember why but man, i love that place! We went on a tractor hay ride, bought some pumpkins, played in the kid area and We took a ton of pictures but i didnt put all of them on here. Here's a couple from it.

We went through it pretty fast because Marc had a night flight he had to get back to the airport to do. So we had about an hour and a half. We hit up Taco Tuesday at Del Taco afterwards! Such a fun family night!

A Little Irritated....

So as im trying to catch up on my blogging, i go to add pictures to my post and it tells me that i have "exceeded my amount"...... AND that i have to purchase more KB... I can post all i want but i cant add any pictures. All my fellow blogpals, how do you get around this? Do you buy extra storage? HELP!!

Scrumptious Chicken Tacos/Burritos!!

So i came across a wonderful pin on pinterest and my mouth started salivating. Seriously. Ill just blame it on the pregnancy. SO i decided to tackle it. It was easy peasy. Here is the Blog!! You can see a picture there because, i sure didnt take a picture!! And if you didnt want to go to the blog then here it is with my changes!!

Scrumptious Chicken Ranch Tacos/Burritos!!

3 breasts of cooked chicken, cubed
1 pckt chicken taco seasoning (I used Chicken Tinga Seasoning by McCormick: gives more of a kick!)
1/2-1 cup ranch
And the fixings:flour tortillas or hard taco shells

Boil the chicken breasts and cube them. Heat a skillet over medium/high heat and throw in the cubed chicken. Sprinkle the chicken taco seasoning on the chicken. Just the dry packet. DO NOT ADD THE WATER!!! Stir it into the chicken and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Then throw in some ranch. And let it heat up. I warmed up some flour tortillas, layered my chicken, cheese, lettuce and more ranch and folded it in a burrito.... YUM YUM YUM!! Definitely making this again!

Baby Harrison #2 is a ........


Yesterday we had a last minute ultrasound and luckily, we were able to find out the gender! We were so excited! We thought it was going to be strictly business during the ultrasound, to check my placenta. (i'll explain in a few) But she asked us if we'd like to know the gender if we can tell and of course, we said yes!
At my appointment on Tuesday, the 23rd, my dr was worried that i had a placenta rupture. I woke up with a little bit of blood coming out and for the last 3 weeks, ive had SO much pressure in my lower abdomen along with sharp pains. There was no way to check at my appointment on Tuesday because the ultrasound tech was out of the office. So we rescheduled it the next morning and i was put on bed rest until that appointment. I HATE BED REST!! Seriously. Theres nothing worse. Luckily, we have some great friends and one of them brought us dinner and gave me a blessing (alongside my husband) It was amazing. So thankful for my worthy priesthood holder in my home. Anywho, we went in for the ultrasound and found NO tear! Thank goodness! We did find out that my placenta is really low, about 1 cm away from my cervix. She thinks it probably irritated my cervix a bit, causing it to bleed.She said, if it was any lower then we'd have some problems but luckily the placenta will only get higher and not lower! Also, the baby is breech. Which isnt something to worry about since im having another c-section anyways, but that too, is another reason why im having so much pressure down there. All in all, it was a good visit! Dont have a UTI,Baby is healthy, i am healthy and we have no serious problems! THANK GOODNESS! My dr did say that i am a little underweight.... UNDERWEIGHT! That was music to my ears considering how fat i was my last pregnancy!! haha. Ive only gained 5 pounds! WOOOO HOOOOO!!!
Pax was with us when we did the ultrasound. He loves going to my appointments caus the can "see the baby". After the appointment, i said, "are you so excited for your baby brother?" And he goes, "no, no baby brother... Baby sister!" SOOOOO we have a little bit of work cut out for us in changing his mind set! haha. 
We are so excited and cant wait to meet this little one!!
