Meeting Santa

Well this is the 3rd year in a row where we have cried when we saw Santa. Maybe next year we can be tear free.

Dallin is 6 Months

Dallin is 6months old. He is in the 75th percentile for height and weight. He loves rice cereal, pears, and believe it or not green beans. His favorite person to watch is Holly.

He is really good and rolling and sitting and he even knows how to get into a crawling position from sitting. He can't get moving yet but he does a lot of rocking. I guess it's time to get out the baby gates. We sure love this guy.

Ward Halloween Party

We had a really fun time at the ward Halloween party. They had trick-or-treating around the classrooms and in the cultural hall they had music and a cake walk. Holly got a candy corn painted on her face, and she even won a cake! We had a great, and busy, Halloween this year.

Law School Halloween Party

We had so much fun at the BYU Law school party this year. Holly was an expert trick-or-treater, and Dallin was really good the whole time. We had pizza, walked in a Halloween parade, and did trick-or-treating around the study desks in the law library. My little sailors were so cute and had a great time playing at Daddy's school.

Pumpkin Craving

Here we are carving the pumpkin that we got at the pumpkin patch along with some others. The next day we woke up and our pumpkins had snow on them. Burrrr

Pumpkin Patch

The Law Partners did a trip to the pumpkin patch and it was really fun. They had a bounce house, playground, and some fun little playhouses to go through. They also had a lot of little animals like, bunnies, turkeys, and goats. We went through a corn maze and even picked out our own pumpkin to take home. It was a really fun trip.

Dallin is 5 Months

The Caped Crusader

Dallin is now 5 months old. He is really starting to grow up. Yesterday he sat up for a full minute without falling over. (of course I didn't have the camera) He is also doing so much better in the car. He has a new favorite toy: his feet, and he plays with them whenever he gets a chance. He has had his first taste of rice cereal and really likes it, my good little eater pants. Now we are working on sleeping through the night without needing a bottle and being able to go to sleep on his own. He is also Mr. Smiles lately, which I love.

Hogle Zoo

We took the kids to the Hogle Zoo the other weekend and it was really fun. My favorite part was seeing the little baby elephant, so cute! A few of Rick's law buddies and their families were able to come with us. Holly had so much fun with her friend Parker. It was a fun time had by all.

Dallin is 4 months

Well my little man keeps growing up and is now 4 months old. He is starting to become really fun always laughing and smiling at Rick, Holly, and me. He is quite the social guy; loves to watch people. His favorite toy is the burp rag. He grabs it in both hands and loves to chew on it. He still hates riding in the car, but he is sleeping really well at night so I can't complain.

Hiking the Y

Last weekend we decided to hike Y mountain with the kids before it got too cold. Our friends, the Madsens came with us. We made it, even though I am out of shape. Rick carried Holly in a back carrier and I carried Dallin in a front carrier. It was really fun and tiring.

Holly's 1st BYU football game

Rick got 2 tickets for the BYU vs. Washington game from a friend at school, so we thought that it would be fun for him to take Holly. They had a great time. Rick said that Holly's favorite thing was the marching band; we might have another generation of marchers in our household. It was a great game, BYU won 23-17. Rick and Holly came home with these great looking visors that came with the tickets. Holly had such a great time that this morning she asked to see the Cougars play again! GO COUGARS!
