Yes or No

With our baby being with her grandparents in Arkansas this week, we've had a lot more time to blog. This is a video that we took about two weeks ago. The family has been practicing the shaking of the head for a little while and then it hit the father and I that we haven't been practicing yes. Here is Evelyn practicing a new motion for her neck. Lets just say we need some more practice. :)

The first holiday dance.

We were at the Target, when we saw an entire room on the side of the store dedicated to Christmas. We went in and found the music-testing machine. Taylor Swift is a favorite of Meg's, so I pushed the button to listen to her music. Apparently Evie was in a very festive mood, because this is what we saw...

Happy Halloween

Meet the cutest Utes Cheerleader ever!!!

It was a wonderful Halloween. We spent the night at Tom and Reyna's and then trick-or-treating with Rico, Sokimna, Erin, and Eli. The booty was well received. Evelyn had no idea what the basket was for when we started. She just stood in front of the door with the pumpkin and looked at us like we were crazy. She didn't think that once the colorful wrapped candy was placed in it. When she finally figured out that she could take the holiday themed candy out of her basket we couldn't keep her hands out of it.

We feasted on Reyna's wonderful meal that she spent all day putting together for us. The night was ended with a scary movie, Ghostbusters. :)

One more fun thing that Evelyn enjoyed: The trick-or-treaters. Before we went around the neighborhood ourselves, we had a few visitors at Tom's house and Evelyn loved it. There would be a knock at the door and she would dash to the door, help whoever was handing out the candy to open it all the way and then steal some candy as the door was closing. Happy Halloween, and now on to Thanksgiving.
