People have given me crap for not posting pictures of Porter. I guess I could put some up. He is now nine months. He is so beautiful.

We finally have Porter sleeping through the night...again. From the time he was 2 weeks old he started sleeping all night. That lasted until our busy summer, when we went to my mom's family reunion at the beach, my dad's family reunion in northern Utah, the reunion with my family, and Jer's class reunion, and a trip to Moab. Porter was then about four months old when he started waking up every three to four hours to nurse. I know many people don't ever get a decent night's sleep while they are nursing, but for me, this was something new. I don't mean to complain but it has been hard on me. Jer finally helped me find the ability to let Porter sleep. So as of this week Porter is sleeping from 8:00pm to 7:00am. This has given me spring to my walk, I wake up with a smile on my face. Life is good!

Yeah, The Halloween Post

Noah and Hyrum were such a mess after eating cotton candy, donuts, and candy. We asked them what they wanted to eat for dinner, they said "Nothing, I'm not hungry". Which isn't normal for my boys, they are always hungry.
Hyrum was an elephant, Noah was a Kangaroo, yes a bit unusual, but both were adorable. They have been animals for three years. I always had to be something scary for Halloween. That was my mom's rule, because Halloween is about being spooked. I guess times have changed.
Mindy, Jer's cousin (I think of her more like a sister, and the boys think of her like an aunt) came along with us. It was nice to have an adult for each kid! After the Halloween festivities we celebrated Mindy's birthday (it was on Monday) by going out to dinner. This is such a cute pix of Mindy and Porter. He's a purple dragon.
Jer and I had a Halloween party on Friday. This is the best we could do for costumes. One day we might actually plan more than the day of the party. Oh well, these costumes still worked out.
