Quick, before she wakes up!

Hello! Annie just fell asleep, and I'm hoping she'll sleep for a while. Brant's at school, and these evening hours are usually the only chance I have to get work done around the house (or to post on the blog). :)

So, things have been going well with us! This week has been exciting, especially with Election Day. Brant and I both voted for the first time, and it was fun! Our polling place was the borough office, which is a block down the street from us. And since we live in such a tiny little town, I don't think anyone ever had to wait in line. So we didn't get that experience, which I hear many Pennsylvanians had! It was neat to be in a battleground state, where so much attention was being placed during the campaigns. Last night we stayed up watching the election coverage, and we even kept track of all the states on our own little map we printed out--just as Josh Lyman would do! :)

Last Sunday we drove down to Havre de Grace, MD to my aunt's house and ate chicken pot pie. It was sooo good. Annie also made her debut to some members of my dad's family. She met Kylee, whose hand-me-downs she's been wearing since birth, and Julia. Both are her second cousins and are about 6 or 7 months old. It was interesting to see what we have to look forward to in 4 months by watching the little girls.

I'm getting excited for Thanksgiving! I'm really looking forward to Brant not having class for a week, and I can't wait to spend time with family. I haven't been here in the East with my family for Thanksgiving since 2001, the last year I was at home before leaving for college! PLUS Twilight comes out on November 21st--and I can't wait to see it! :)

Brant is almost done with 3 of his 4 term papers for this semester! He set up a workspace (as Dwight Schrute would call it) in our bedroom by the door to the balcony. It's helped, having a place to keep all his research material, and it means he can stay home more instead of going to campus!

I hope everyone's having a great week! Tomorrow is Annie's 2 month doctor's appointment. More shots, booo! But I'm excited to see how much she weighs! More updates later!
