I was sitting in the Salt Lake City Airport on my way home from the wedding and called Hyrum just to check in before my flight left. I was greeted by, "We're on our way to the Children's Hospital". Spencer had fallen at a playground and Hyrum was taking him to get him stitched up. Thankfully a friend was able to watch the other three kids and all was well when I got home that night. Spencer did pop his stitches a couple days later. I think next time I'll just glue him back together, both boys have popped their stitches shortly after being stitched up.
I volunteered to help with food for the neighborhood Halloween party. I hate store bought cookies so I volunteered to make all of them. I made over 100 cookies and decorated them. It was fun but a little chaotic.
Hyrum and the kids did their traditional pumpkin carving. Spencer was happy to get right in there. The kids celebrated Halloween with the neighborhood costume parade and games and then a trunk or treat at the church. We had so much candy it was insane. They had fun though next year we need to find new costumes, these ones are getting a little small : )
Hyrum traveled a bit in October to Germany, Belgium, France, Netherlands and England. He is teaching engineering education classes for Google.
Like I said, it was a busy month, but we made it through without any snow. It's one measure of success I hold on to every Fall.
