Halloween 2015 in St. George
We've been lazy around here. Real lazy! As you can tell from the date of my last post. ;) So today I have no topic to blog about. Instead I'll just fill you in on what our little clan has been up to. First off, fall has been amazing. We savored every little bit of fall before this Christmasy chill set in. We went to the pumpkin patch four times. We decorated (because I am simply too lazy to carve) pumpkins. We drove through the mountains to see the changing leaves multiple times. We ate all things pumpkin and apple. We burnt through two fall-scented candles from bath and body works. We collected colorful leaves. We went to some great Halloween parties. We painted spooky Halloween houses. We went on a haunted hay ride (Scott and I). All-in-all, we enjoyed the heck out of our fall. Now while it's still fall and I am still burning my fall-scented candles, I admit to pre-maturely blasting Christmas tunes. Bring. On. The. Holiday. Cheer!
But let's talk Halloween, specifically. We loaded up for a little road trip to meet all of my family in St. George at my grandma's house. It was a blast. We drank way too many crapy sodas, ate sugar cookies until we were sick and had the most delicious chili prepared by my aunt. Best of all, I got to see my best friends (sisters), nieces, nephews and my parents for three whole days under one chaotic roof. Scarlett was in cousin heaven. It was perfect. On halloween evening I worked so hard to get Welles' costume on. But alas, he won that battle with his sheer hatred for the handmade Gus-Gus ears I made him. Scarlett was the most darling little Cinderella. She felt like such a princess and lit up with each girly twirl her dress made. Scott was killing me while we trick-or-treated. He insisted on hitting every single house. Even after Scarlett was pleading to go home. He threw her on his shoulders and ran from door to door while Welles and I tried to keep up. I should have faked some contractions to slow the man down. We have enough candy to last the year.
In Scarlett news, she participated in her very first Primary Program at our church. Basically she got to say one line in front of the whole congregation. When asked by her primary teachers how she follows Jesus Christ's example she gave them a heart felt response, which they asked her to repeat for the program. The line was "I follow Jesus Christ's example when I say my prayers and don't run away from my parents." It was hilarious and darling. My sassy little girl keeps everyone laughing.
In Welles news, he continues to be a little menace and get into EVERYTHING! He makes more messes in one day than Scarlett has ever made. I guess he had to have an imperfection. His therapists are bringing in a walker soon because they think it will help strengthen those legs and get him walking. Now that he's such a tornado, I'm not sure I want him walking. ;)
As for me... I still feel crazy hormonal but getting better at controlling them nutty emotions. I think Scott pretends to do dishes as soon as I come down the stairs to keep me from ticking. Also, I can't bend anymore. But other than that, I'm getting into nesting mode and becoming a productive human once again. Two thumbs up for that!
Scott is still Scott. Most loving daddy and most easy-going husband on the planet. We're all pretty lucky to have that guy around.
And now I feel like I wrote a mini Christmas card, which is good since I wont be writing a real one!
