Neither kid looks too sure about this picture. Seconds later, Sheridan was trying to shove him off of her saying "All done! All done, Henry!" Ah, portents of things to come!

(This is Henry, coming home!)
Wanted to add some more picts for the faraway family...but you can feel free to enjoy them, too! Thanks for all the congrats and well-wishes--we're grateful to have such good friends.
(Jack LOVES his baby brother!)

The kids got to meet him this morning at the hospital and they couldn't wait they were so excited. They really love him a ton and shower him with affection. They were also stoked about hanging out in the hospital room and watching movies (about the only way we could realistically stay there for more than about 9 minutes at a time). Both Jack and Sheridan talk about how cute Henry is and how much they love him. They both want to hold him and give him hugs and kisses.
We will have much to be grateful for when they come home on Thanksgiving day. Ali and I have officially joined the ranks of "outnumbered parents." Wish us luck!

Happy Halloween! Thought we'd bring you up-to-speed on our Halloween fun thus far (we still have tonight to go!)
October 17th we met up with a bunch of Jack's buddies at Gardner Village. They do a witch-theme every October and had fun witchy things all over the shopping village. The kids' favorite part? Going to McDonald's playland afterwards. The didn't want to leave McD's! I spent the week before working frantically on Jack and Sheridan's costumes, but didn't get all of Jack's details finished in time (probably because I decided to use a different material the day before and started over on Thursday!).
On Monday the 27th, we went to the Halloween Party at the Bean Museum on BYU campus. The kids LOVE all the animals there and had a great time dressing up. I worked on Jack's costume during the day, since I hadn't touched it except to move it since the 17th! Still wasn't 100% finished, but people knew what he was! As a note, Sheridan's costume was WAY easier. I don't know why the boy wanted to be the Tin Man, but who REALLY understands the mind of a nearly-four-year-old?
Wednesday the 29th we had a cousin party up in Sandy. Unfortunately, the AF cousins couldn't come, but we had SO MUCH FUN with those who were there. I think it may have to become an annual event. I don't have a pict of all the cousins together in their costumes, but they looked ADORABLE! Tyler's Grampa Larry and Gramma Diane were able to come and they had the funkiest masks--they are so much fun! Gramma Di made an eyeball cake that had strawberry puree injected into the white cake...eeewwww! It was a ton of fun for everybody!
Last night we carved pumpkins (or, in Sheridan's case, colored them). The kids had so much fun.
Tonight we're planning on trick-or-treating and other Halloween fun! We'll update you...soon!
