Halloween 2014

This was the first year we went trick or treating and it was actually way more fun than I thought it would be! 

First off my husband dressed as batman this year. to work.. it was amazing. Seriously. Best Batman I ever seen. And to top it off, he hid and as his boss unlocked the front doors, he grabbed his bosses arm, scared the crap out of him. It is a good thing they are friends. haha.

Then after nap I got Adeline dressed up in her witch costume. She didn't mind wearing either just the hat and tights or just the dress and tights, but SHE WOULD NOT wear all 3 things at once. It was comical. After photos we dressed warm and went trick or treating. I didn't think she would last more than a few houses, but Adeline, her cousin and my cousins had a blast going around our whole neighborhood. Adeline and Bryn (her cousin who is 5 weeks younger) would run after their cousins and run up to the next house, and hold up their trick or treat bag. It was a very proud moment for me. :)

Thanksgiving 2014

Jordan was  on his final day of having the flu on Thanksgiving (influenza A) so he pretty much just laid around for Thanksgiving. But he did join in on the fun! And I was thankful for him being there with us! We went to his moms house where we had delicious food and Adeline got to drink from her big girl Frozen cup, nap with daddy and jump on Grandma's furniture. We then went to my parents house, where Adeline got to play with her cousin Bryn and her Mimi and Papa and eat delicious food! 

It was a great day with family! I love the holidays. The buzz of going around family to family, delicious food, memories, laughs, memories being made... I just LOVE the warm fuzzies this time of year brings me! Plus I had been craving Thanksgiving food for like a month, so for me, it was like a dream come true! 

Oh I also made this amazing Sweet potato casserole! It was my sisters favorite dish ever! Win for me! Here is the recipe I followed:
I added marshmallows on the top and a little more butter as well.

Baby Berg # 2 is....

Baby Berg is... 

We are so excited to announce that Baby Berg # 2 is a BOY!!

I felt like I "knew" that it was going to be a boy. But I was in utter shock when he was actually a boy!! :) haha.Funny isn't it.  It was so fun to watch him on the screen and see his face squished agained my placenta, see his arms and legs, and of course the gender identifying "junk"! We are so excited to be adding a little boy to our family!  Jordan of course is excited that boys will be the dominant gender again. :) (porkchop, Jordan and baby boy vs me and Adeline)
