    Board Game Geeks…

    1 Comment

    My brothers Ryan and Sean came over on Saturday so we made time for a combined game of Settlers, Sea Farers, and Cities and Knights. Anyone familiar with Settlers of Catan knows how intense this is. Ryan came away with a lucky win, Ben held his own, Sean was a first timer but hung in there and I got whooped.

    ultimate settlers 

    You can always count on Robertsons for pulling lame faces in pictures and devouring a bag of M&M’s at some point during the game. For those that know the game I am displaying my two LAME Progress Cards – both Intrigue cards! The lamest in the whole game. No wonder I couldn’t pull off the win.

    I’m excited for the holiday week. We’ve always gone out of state for Thanksgiving but with my due date being so close we’ll be home this year. A few of the Robertson clan will be here on Thursday so hopefully Ben gone pull off a yummy turkey! And I am craving some pumpkin Pie! yum. I can’t wait.

    The Pleasant Grove Sister-in-laws (that planned everything and are awesome! – thanks!) Everyone is holding their youngest daughter as I wait for mine.

    the Orovillians

    The Orovillians. We needed to post this to make Erica feel bad for not coming 🙂 .  We’ll forgive her this time (only because she made the invitations and got other people to come instead!)

    baby shower

    Proof that there were other people that came besides my family! I just forgot to get my camera out until the party was over 🙁 . We love our ward family!

    the Johnsons

    The Johnson family – that’s my mom’s mom and her two sisters and two of my cousins and their kids! Thanks to everyone that came to the shower. I had a great time and am feeling better prepared for this little one to be born. 17 more days!! who’s counting?

    The 9th Month


    You know you are in your last month of pregnancy when…

    you willingly get out of bed at 5am because no matter how tired you are you just can’t get comfortable. 

    your back aches!

    you crave “Maceys Farm Bread” every time you walk by the kitchen.

    you find yourself making a new ” things I need to clean list” everyday! 

    you start waddling more than walking.

    you are exhausted, ie. can’t lift your arms, after a day of shopping at the mall.

    your inny becomes an outy.

    you are out of breath after carrying your 18 month old up the stairs (there are only 6 stairs!)

    you experience lovely leg cramps  ( from doing nothing – the cramps just come and muscles tighten and you feel like you just played an intense basketball game and the muscle stays tight for a week – but really you were just lying in bed.)

    you are excited for your baby shower!

    you have to wrap up your blog entry because your baby is sitting on your bladder again!

    Leaves, Lots of Leaves!


    Ready set Where is Benji Hi Guys 

    Benji getting burried in the big pile of leaves! He loved it!

    Packers turn where did he go ahhh PwithD

    Packers turn to get burried! Not so fun. But finding dad was fun!


    Some of the cousins came and played with us! After living here for 4 years we’ve finally figured out the best way to clean up the leaves of our humongous tree. We wait for all the leaves to fall – we spend one hour raking – we play in the leaves for an hour – and then we hall them out on a tarp to a truck and let the Elders Quorum hall them away 🙂


    And last night we watchedPolar Express” – in 3D!!

    Ninja Halloween!

    Our Ninja and Our Ninja Turtle all dressed up, with no naps because they were too excited to sleep! We went to the PG City Park with Benji’s friend Avery  and then came home to eat pizza – because that’s what Ninja Turtles eat! – and wait for Dad so that we could go trick or treating!

     BenjAve dadandboys

    Batman took the boys trick or treating around our neighborhood. Raphael wanted to come home after a little while but you can see that our other little Ninja begged to go back out and get more treats! After trick or treating all of the cousins came to our house to play – we forgot to ge our annual picture but we had a lot of fun.

    Benji is already asking when Turkey Day is! and Ben has already found opportunities to play Christmas Music and re-introduce the story of The Grinch to Benji! These Nettys Love the Holidays!
