October was by far the busiest month for us! David was out of twice which is always fun for him but sad for Grant and I, we made a few trips home to Colorado, I became an aunt for the third time in three months, and we attended a baptism and baby blessing. In not so good news, I had a miscarriage last Monday. Things are going really well though and we are grateful that we have Grant and that each day seems to get better. I've had some heart-to-hearts with Heavenly Father and I know that he is aware of me and my family and that's been a huge comfort during this confusing time. It's hard to trust him but even harder not to. Really I have a lot to be thankful for so I'll just leave it at that.

This was probably my favorite Halloween in a long time. We had a hard time coming up with a costume for Grant, he doesn't like to wear hats, doesn't like jackets or weird things hanging off his body. Ugh, can you imagine how feisty our girls will be?! We had a few ideas but we wanted something that he would actually be excited to wear...cue Alvin costume. It was perfect, cheap, easy, and he loved it! He caught on to the whole trick-or-treat thing pretty fast and was really polite and sweet saying "thank you" and "Happy Halloween" to everyone. That night he was eating his candy at olympic speed and had to be stopped! The next morning he came over to me and said "Mommy? Trick-or-treat? Ok and socks!" then ran and put on his shoes. Uh, yea buddy like I'm going to take you trick-or-treating at 7:00 am on Nov 1.

We were able to do some festive things with family...pumpkins, halloween cookies, pumpkin farm. 

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!
