Zach's sister Davi was down in St. George last weekend so we decided to take advantage of her great photography skills and have her do a quick family photo shoot for us since we haven't had any family picutres since Iyrlend's been born. They turned out great and of course all the best ones were of Iyrlend so here's a few. Iyrlend looks so big in this last one, it's kinda makes me sad she's not just a little baby anymore, I can't believe it. Her first two teeth are coming in and that really hit me hard that she's growing so fast and is closer to being a year old than being a new born. Boy how the time flies!

So as you can see for Halloween Iyrlend was a bumble bee and I think just about every baby girl her age was too, which was fine this year but because I like to be different it looks like I'm going have to start getting creative for the halloweens to come. Any way my mom always makes hot dogs and hot chocolate for the trick or treaters so we went over to her house and helped. I was an orange witchy and Zach was the natural DORK he always is. He was way excited about his nerd costume he threw together the night before so he could be dressed up at work for the costume contest which he won for the FUNNIEST costume and got $50 bucks for it. Hope everyone had a great halloween I know we sure did.
This past week has been a bit of a crazy one for my family. But with everything that happened it made us all really step back and realize how lucky we are. My grandpa Norm had a minor heart attack on Monday. He didn't even know he had a heart attack until he finally went into the doctor Tuesday. His chest had been bothering him for about a week but he never went to the doctor and just kept on golfing and going on like nothing was the matter. Finally on Tuesday he decided he better go in since not only was his chest hurting but his heart too. Once he got to the doctor they told him he had a minor heart attack and was really lucky that was all that happened because his arteries were so blocked. A lot of times they can just put stints in but his arteries were too blocked for stints so they scheduled a bypass surgery for Wednesday. Luckily everything went great, he has been doing and looking a lot better than expected and is recovering just wonderfully! He really was not looking forward to the surgery and the recovery time and was making us all nervous that he might not go through with it but my mom informed him that he lost is agency in this case and he was having the surgery no matter if he wanted to or not. I think he's glad he did now because he's feeling pretty good. He's not much of sit down relax kinda guy so it's been really weird to see him sitting in a hospital bed and he wasn't too excited about the down time that comes with surgery but he seems to be excepting it. I love my grandpa Norm so much and I'm so glad everything went so well, he's the best grandpa and thanks goodness he's still with us!
