On Monday night we had the Allen Family Halloween party at my parents' house. I was one of very few adults in costume but it was my only chance to dress up. I was a spider web and George was the spider. George's costume was pretty easy to make. If I had spent more time on it, it could have been awesome but he didn't care. It was good enough for him. There was good food, movies, music, pumpkin carving and professional pictures. I am excited to see the pictures my cousin got of our family. My mom took quite a few and they are just reminders for me as to why I am currently trying to lose weight...
We had a great time in Utah! Our only regret is that we didn't get to see everyone we wanted to. But we did get to spend a lot of time with family which was our main goal. We arrived in Cedar City on Saturday night and spent the night at our friend Jackie's house. She was very hospitable and even made us Sunday dinner! Anyway, we went to our old ward for church on Sunday and saw a lot of our friends. It was bittersweet, sitting there behind Widows' Row. It brought back feelings of belonging and love. It just made us want to move back to Cedar even more. I spent the last hour with the young women. It was way fun to be there again!
We got to Springville around 8:30 Sunday night and stopped over at my sister's house to say hello. We weren't there long since George goes to bed at that time. We were able to spend some time at my brother Dayton's house were we were fed and entertained. Their kids are so cute! And Gus, who is 3 weeks older than George, is getting so big! We also spent some time at Glen's Dad's house. It was great to see his sisters who came down from Northern Utah to see us! Way northern. Like Logan, Clinton and Farmington. George had a blast with his cousins! And Aunt Miranda brought a bunch of toys and clothes her kids had grown out of. George is so lucky! (and so is his mom)

We went to Gardner Village with Caitie and Nate and had a great time!

We had a wonderful time in Utah! The weather was amazing and we can't wait to go back for Thanksgiving!
So, I made a mistake on my percentiles for George's 4 month check up. The Dr.'s office didn't give me percentiles so I looked them up online and I guess the internet is not always right. Who knew? So, anyway, I guess two months ago George was in the 45th percentile for weight and 50-something for height. Now he is 49th for weight and 70-something for height. He weighs 17 lbs 6 oz and he is 27 inches. He's my growing boy!
