We went a little crazy with Halloween this year and made costumes based on the children's book "Where the Wild Things Are." Barbara sewed Elliott's Max costume/wolf suit from scratch, and I made our masks out of paper mache. It took weeks, and they turned out pretty good. After three Halloween parties, two visits to our moms' elementary school classrooms to read the book, and a visit to Barnes and Noble for a book reading, we were ready for this Halloween to be finished.
Elliott was blessed last week in church. He looked awesome in his little man Sunday clothes that Barbara is in love with. We were even going to have a tiny tie for him to wear, but his neck is so fat now we can't even button his top button. Thank you to everyone that could make it.
Elliott is two months old! We made it back to San Diego and have been having fun with family. He has finally been able to meet his two grandpas, some of his great-grandparents, his great-great-grandpa, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. He's been doing great.
This last one is how we kept his pacifier in one day.
We went to the Grand Teton National Park for the first time yesterday. I guess Obama is taking his family vacation there and in Yellowstone right now. Whenever we'd see a black SUV we'd yell, "Obama!" but we never saw him. Oh well.
