Lately, since it's been a lot colder, I've really been trying to get Ethan to wear a hat when we go outside. He's better about it than he used to be, but he always takes the hat off before we're done outside. It's kind of frustrating. The other day Ethan founf a package of his swimming diapers and he wore one on his head FOREVER. He thought it was the coolest thing. Why won't he wear a regular hat, but is thrilled with a diaper?

Today Matt and I celebrate our 4th Wedding anniversary! We've been through so much together. I love my husband so much and I am so blessed to have him in my life. He's such an amazing and loving person and I love him with all of my heart. Eternity is going to be so wonderful as long as we're together.

I wanted to make Some Cupcakes for Matt's aunt and uncle and for the Spencers that we could take to them on Halloween night. Ethan, of course, was very eager to help me. The only problem was that his definition of helping me make cupcakes was to eact almost an entire bowl of orange frosting. He was a little hyper that day.
Making Costumes for this Halloween was a lot of work and there were times that I just wanted to throw the sewing machine out the window, but I was so excited when I saw how well they all turned out. Matt actually vacccuum formed the mask to fit his face perfectly and he welded the belt out of steel. He even made the boots himself out of some slippers and foam. Pretty cool, huh?
The hardest part about My costume was losing enough weight to not feel rediculous in a skin tight body suit. I know I'm still chunkier than the real bat girl, but she never had a baby and she's a drawing for Heaven Sakes!
This was the first year we took Ethan Trick or Treating and we were a little nervous that he wouldn't like it very much, but he absolutely loved it! We took him to one of the Dorms on campus because they advertised trick or treating there. It was nice because it was inside and there were tons of doors right next to eachother, so he got a lot of candy without having to go too far. He loved knocking on the doors and letting the single girls admire him. He got really excited at one of the rooms and as soon as the door opened, he just barged right into the poor girls room and we had to politely ask her so send him back out. We also went to see Matt's uncle Brian and Cindy and some old family friends, the Spencers. It was such a fun night!
