We had a fabulous Saturday celebrating this fun holiday, even with all the fabulous rain! We got to visit my grandparents in the morning, and helped watch my brother’s kids while he and his wife were at the temple! Then we came home for some holiday fun! We did pumpkins, and Steven had a blast trick-or-treating with his daddy! Lillie and I made it maybe two houses while trick-or-treating, but I decided carrying an 18 pound wiggly baby and an umbrella in the pouring rain was too difficult, so I stayed home and handed out candy to other brave souls. We finished the evening with a Jack’o’Latern Pizza and candy eating, of course :)

I cannot believe my baby is already 9 months old! It was even more crazy to me after her nine month well-child visit, I scheduled her One Year check-up. She’s growing up way too fast.
Anyway, stats for 9 months:
Weight: 18 lb 4 oz – 41 percentile
Height: 27 inches – 33 Percentile
Head Circum: 46 cm – 94 percentile (She must be related to her brother..)
Playing with Daddy
She also signed her first word last week - “more.” She was eating cereal, and I looked over and she was signing it. To make sure she was actually doing it, I asked her if she wanted more. She smiled, and signed it again. She’s growing up :)
She can’t crawl yet, but loves to sit and play with her toys. It’s even more convenient that her brother always dumps a billion toys in her lap to play with. She loves to roll around the floor to get where she wants to go, and is starting to figure out the swim scoot.

This week has been a long week, with the kids being sick all week, and myself joining their ranks on Friday. Thanks to my sister, coming to watch the kids, and thanks to ibuprofen eliminating my fever and aches, I was able to go with Darrell to Sundance to his mission reunion from the Australia Melbourne Mission. The drive up to Sundance was beautiful, even though a lot of the leaves have already changed color and lost a lot of leaves. I made Darrell stop by Bridal Veil Falls on the way up so I could take pictures
The view from the Overton’s cabin was AMAZING. That’s about the only word I can think of to describe it. The colors were not super fantastic, but it was still beautiful.
Last weekend, we headed to St. George for our yearly family trip with my family. It was lots of fun, and it was good to see almost everyone. (A few had to stay home with chicken pox). Anyway, to break up the trip to St. George, we stopped at Cove Fort for a little bit to look around and explore
Thursday night when we got St. George, we went to Fiesta Fun with one of my brother’s and his family. Steven had fun in the kid zone, and especially had fun miniature golfing. Our view of the temple from the golf course was fabulous. I grow to love the St. George temple more every time I see it. If it weren’t so blasted hot down there, I would try to convince Darrell that we should move there :)
On Friday, we all headed to Snow Canyon for lots of exploring and fun times with the family. After hiking and lunch, we all went to the Sand Hollow Aquatic Center. Steven absolutely LOVED the giant waterslide, even though he had to wear a life jacket. It was fun.This is what he looked like at the end of the day. :)
Saturday we went to the Brighan Young Winter Home, the St. George Tabernacle and lunch with everyone before heading back to Cedar City. Darrell watched the BYU game at my brothers house, while I went to the RS Broadcast with my good friend, Christie. Christie and Todd were awesome to let us stay at their house, and Christie and I had great time staying up late talking. Sunday was my 24th birthday, and also the twins, Ava and Wyatt, blessing day. They were darling, and I’m glad I could share their special day with them!! My brother Daniel is a volunteer fire-fighter, and so when we took chairs and tables back to the fire station, Steven got to see the firetrucks, and Darrell even got to go down a fire pole :)
