Off the Charts!

Austin went in for his two month check-up on Tuesday. He is in the 85th-90th percentile for his head and length, and off the charts for his weight! He is now just over 24" tall and weighed in at 16 pounds 7 ounces!! Oh how we love our big bundle of joy!

Hot Tubs and Family Time

Most of Landon's family came down to meet Austin the first weekend in November. It was SOOOOO wonderful to have them here!

Here's David and Nellie...

and Kassie...

Austin put on his best face

We had a fun time Saturday-- the boys went golfing in the morning, we all played at the park, and most of them even tried out the nice hot tub and not-so-heated-yet pool here at our complex. (My legs were numb just from hanging them in there- I don't know how they stayed in so long!)

Landon convinced everyone that it felt SO nice to just float face-down in the hot tub, so the other guys had to try it out.

Landon gave Austin a very nice blessing on Sunday. We dressed him up in white, thanks to Angela's thoughtfulness in lending and sending down an awesome suit. Austin was very reverent the entire time, as you can see.

The priesthood holders (except Austin of course) -
Bubba Tracy, Austin Dennis Mauler, Dennis Mauler, Landon Mauler, and David Mauler

(yes, we matched our outfits on purpose) :)

Grease and Our Lil' Pumpkin

A week or two before Halloween Austin and I went with our good friends Becky (the mom), Zoey and Isaac, to a giant pumpkin patch! Her kids are so cute and fun. They loved the mini petting zoo and the hay ride pulled by horses. We got to pick our own pumpkin right off the vine. Austin was so good the entire time (he was asleep for most of it).

We went to an awesome Halloween party thrown by our friends Becky and Matt.

We were rockin' with our costumes as Sandy, Danny, and Austin the "punk"in'. Landon loved being able to wear my jeans!

There was great food.....

Great games......

And best of all, great friends, with some pretty fun costumes too...
(I haven't read "Twilight" but that was the inspiration for this one!)

We were also graced with the presence of most of Landon's family who came into town on Halloween afternoon. His nieces, Savannah and Paris, always have to have what each other has, so they were both Tinkerbell for Halloween...
