In true Ballard Halloween fashion we waited until the last minute to decide on/acquire our costumes. Cole was Willy Wonka and I was his oompa loompa. I think we may have outdone ourselves this year. Thank goodness for Goodwill and that Cole-sized woman who didn't want her purple velvet Old Navy jacket anymore. Here are some pics from Anne + Michael's awesome party:
L-R: Max, Gaga, Karate Sue, Oompa, Willy, Justin Beiber party girl,
Pinata man, Sweatin' to the oldies Val, and Jake the Snake
Look at that pure Oompa joy to be with Valorie
The rockin' hosts
In baby news, I'm 22 weeks, although this pic is from 21. We've officially switched from "the ghetto hospital," to Methodist. Hurray! Our baby is measuring at about 19-20 weeks, so hopefully she starts packing on the pounds and the inches soon. I officially can no longer button/zip up my pants, so pins (and sometimes nothing) have sufficed to keep them on so far. I love love love feeling her move! It's my favorite thing so far. Cole has already gotten a "high-five" from her. Happy to report she's healthy!
