On November 3rd my little Eleanor turned 1!!!!!! Unfortunately there are not any pictures of her party because we were all running videos!! I might be able to get one later! We had her party on the 1st because on the 3rd and 4th we were swamped with her Uncle Adam's Wedding to Jamie! YEAH!!! But I am so happy for my darling little girl! She is getting so old and more adorable every day!
She continues to be my little miracle baby - after 6 weeks and 3 antibiotics -after a blessing her nasty ear infections cleared up right before we were going to have to put tubes in her ears!
Yeah for Nora!

I love you sweetie!!!

With my parent's out of town I took over the family tradition of Halloweenies for the Merrill clan! I had a lot of fun!

Merrill was Buzz Lightyear thanks to my sister-in-law having the perfect costume to borrow!
I dressed as Jill
And here is my poor Jack... he broke his crown... : (
Nora - the Punk Rock Princess - you can't tell but she let me put purple eye shadow on her!
My older brother Adam
Adam's kids
My sister Sarah with her daughter, daughter's friend and two boys. My favorite costume of the night was Bryce (on the right) his costume was "new clothes!"
Besides our traditional "Halloweenies" (Hot dogs) and "Boo Beans" (Baked beans) we had... "Ghoul Goodies"
"Ghost's Goo with "Spider's Nest Veggies"
And what is Halloween with out the famous "Frog Eye Salad?" We also had "Monster's Slim" (Sherbet in Sprite.)

October also yield my birthday on the 23rd with no real pictures because it was just a nice day for me to not do anything. Mark took me shopping and then to our friend's Halloween party. It was great. The boys did make me an awesome breakfast with my favorites! Mark's eggs, cinnamon rolls, turkey bacon and hot chocolate. MMMMMMMM!
Merrill's birthday was celebrated a day early due to the Halloween on Sunday thing. So on Friday the 29th, we had a Buzz Lightyear Birthday!

Merrill helped with the cupcakes for everyone else and Aunt Mary brought him his own #3 Birthday cake form Dippidee - yummy!
Although my parents are in St. George, they got him some awesome Cars headphones for his ipod. (Mark picked them out.)
Grandma and Grandpa Nott gave Merrill waffle blocks in this awesome Buzz Lightyear bag!
Mark and I got him his own Buzz Lightyear with a flashlight. Happy Birthday Merrill. WE LOVE YOU BIG BOY!!!

October was a great month for us! On the weekend of the 8th we headed to Bear Lake with the extended Nott clan. We had so much fun we are going to make it a tradition! It was great to just hang around. We spend most of the time just in the cabin and relaxed together. But we did venture out a bit...
We took some family photos right by the lake... brrr!
Merrill and Zoey helping Grandma Nott bake cupcakes
We also hit a local park to get the kids out for a bit when it was a little warmer.
Nora loves to swing!
What is a trip to Bear Lake without Raspberry Shakes? Yes it was cold and we were eating ice cream!

Merrill asked us to take this one and then posed! What a ham!
