I seriously can't believe that Bristol is 8 months old today. And what an eventful day it was! Not only is she older and wiser, but she has a double ear infection. Poor little thing. She must have extremely high pain tolerance because she has been fooling me for a while, and her Doc was in awe at how happy she was! She is such a funny little thing. Still not crawling, but she does wave, and she can scoot backwards on her tummy. Of course she can roll all over the place too. And her favorite time of day is snack time! She loves it!

Recent Happenings

We went on yet another hike somewhere up Logan Canyon, and we ran into this moose! Honestly, I was scared because of the recent story of a moose trying to attack Ty's Dad, but this one hardly noticed we were there. Pretty cool!

A new found "containment" chair. This is the best while mom does her makeup!

Bristol is still not crawling, but she still manages to roll around and find fun things to get into. I caught her pulling out DVDs. This apaprtment is going to be terrible to baby proof. She is so darling though!

Bristol LOVES to stare down my cousin Nick Kennedy. It is so funny! She just stares at him, and he could be doing anything, but she won't look away!

Talent Show and PIE!

What a way to start off the Thanksgiving Holidays. Our Stake had a Talent Show followed by some yummy pie for dessert last night. So much fun! I played a couple of fiddle tunes, a little rusty, but pretty good! Anyway, lots of fun!

Fall Hiking

The fall weather has been pretty decent, and we got this KILLER deal on an REI framed hiking backpack for babykins, so we have been taking some nice trips. It has been perfect!

Yes...Ty + Steph = Bristol!

A completely tuckered baby bear! Hiking is such hard work! She is just the sweetest thing I have ever seen!

All Hallows Eve...What a Bash!

My Grandparents hosted a Halloween party fully put together by Ashley. It was so much fun. The only requirement...we all had to dress up. It was great! We had a pumpkin carving contest, costume contest, and treat contest.

Ty and I dressed up in clothes from the early 1900's, Bristol was a pretty pink bunny, Chrissy was M.C. Hammer, Ashley-Amelia Eirheart, Mom-witch, Dad dressed as he always does when we get picked up for our first date, Kate-white trash pregnant mom, Grant-BABY...sick!, Hailey-pirate, and Annie was the entre. What a bunch!

The party was great. Good food, good company, and a great haunted house in the garage...about that. Well, Ashley (If you know Ash, you are already laughing) had a fog machine that she was testing out in our house in the kitchen. Bad idea...the smoke alarm went off. I was napping, the guys were at Cabelas, and my mom just started running around the house in a panic. The phone line was siezed because of the security system, so ADT called my mom's cell phone. She told them not to send the firetruck that we were all ok. Next thing, we hear the sirens coming from the fire station about two city blocks from our house. My mom started crying. So, I ran outside to meet and greet those hefty fire boys ;) adn told them that my mom was too embarrassed and out of her mind to come outside. They all started laughing but had to come in and check everything out anyway. My mom was so embarassed, but they were really nice and got on their way. I guess we will see how nice the bill is?! So, the house was still smoky, so I sent Ash to her room because my mom could hardly talk to any of us. So, we all kinda disappeared in the basement until we heard mom call down "I'm ok now. You can all come back up." What a day, what a day. Nothing is boring when Ashley is around!
