Halloween Fun!

I was a little worried about this Halloween and how Jac would react to wearing a costume. About a week ago I tried to get him to try on two costumes and he very adamantly refused. He freaked out if we even got them near him. BUT Saturday we went to St. George and when he saw his cousins getting in their costumes and we told him he needed one to go trick or treating and he needed to go trick or treating to get candy, he agreed, still a little reluctantly though. That is until we got to the first house. He caught on very quickly and even told people what he was, showed them his tail and barked. At first he tried to go in a few houses, but soon he figured out that the next house would give him more candy and started telling people to "come on" if they took to long leaving a house. Sometimes he started yelling "trick or treat" before he even got to the door. It was a lot of fun going with him. Little Reese was a trooper and fell asleep in my arms after a little bit. Jac got lots of candy and we had to cut him off after he unwrapped 2 suckers and stuck them in his mouth at the same time!
We took lots of pictures. This year my dad (Pop pop) wasn't able to be with us, he got a job in Vernal and will be away for the next 2 1/2 months. We missed him and we hope he knows how much we love him!
It was a good weekend. Jeremy even got to go to the "Zombie walk" down the Boulevard in St. George. He said it was awesome.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Going ons

Last weekend was my younger brother, Rileys' wedding. It was a lot of fun. Of course whenever you get family and friends together for a celebration it usually is good times. I will post some pictures as soon I get them. Of course it was a long day for Jac and Reese, but I think that Jac had the harder time. He is always so excited to see his cousins and loves to follow them around and do what they do. At one point him and Lydia, who is 3, were twisting a two seater swing around and spinning in it. Well the momentum threw Jac from the swing and he landed with his face... on a rock. Poor little kid has a huge scab on his left cheek. When I took Reese to the doctors yesterday for her check up, Dr. Newman told him it was cool and that chicks dig scars :)
Speaking of the doctors, Reese is 13.7 pounds and 24.5 inches long. She is in the 50% for weight and 56% for height. So she is doing great! She got her second round of immunizations yesterday too. She is NOT a happy camper this morning. Jac got a flu shot yesterday too. It doesn't seem to bother him today though. Good thing too, I don't know what I would do with two sad kids today.
Jeremy is doing a fund raiser for a organization called Extra Life. It is this Saturday. It is to raise money for Primary Children's Medical Center. This is the hospital that fixed the hole in Jac's heart. I also have had some friends and family that have recently had their kids there. Jeremy has a goal of $1000. He currently has only raised $218. He is asking that people donate just $24. What he will be doing is a game-a-thon... Yep you read it right :) he will be playing video games for 24 hours straight ( I know real sacrifice huh :) But it is for a good cause and it anyone could donate, we would really appreciate it! This is the link to the donation page.
I am doing good. I am still getting up and "pushing play" every morning. I also started training for the triathlon last week. My bum is sore from the bike ride, but it is getting better :) I am excited and I am so grateful to everyone who has been encouraging and supportive. Well, I better go. Jac wants to go to play group.
