Well, fall has been pretty wonderful so far. Like so many other people, I love fall. The weather is beautiful, the trees are beautiful, we get to spend time outdoors since it isn't too hot or too cold, and I know that the holidays are just around the corner. Oh, and don't forget the batch of pumpkin bars I made last week. The cream cheese frosting and the yummy cinnamon and nutmeg. It was spectaular.
Things are going quite well for our little family. Ellie is getting bigger everyday. She crawls everywhere and just got her first tooth last Wednesday. She is so quick to smile and I love to cuddle with her. She is very independent until big Walter walks in the door. She will not cry all day but as soon as he walks in she cries until he picks her up. And he had better not just walk past her. That is pretty much a sin in her book. She is cute and fluffy and we love her.
No, I did not plan the baby plumber's crack in this picture. She was just playing the part of daddy's little plumbing helper.

Little Walter is awesome. I just love that kid. He makes me laught all the time. He LOVES his little sister. He rolls around on the floor with her and still makes sure to give her a kiss every night. He loves to help me with just about everything I do, including chores. Now, if I can just teach him how to do the chores properly we might be on to something. He had a great time at the ward Halloween party even though he wouldn't wear his costume until the party was over. Not a big deal except that he was cookie monster and the rest of us were chocolate chip cookies. Without the cookie monster we just looked like spotted cows. It happens, I guess.

We are still working on the bathroom remodel. It is so pretty and so worth the work. I just wish someone would give us a few more hours in the day so that we could do more work. We have done a lot since I last blogged but nothing stands out as being the coolest thing to blog about so I guess I will finish.
For good measure, here are a few cute pics of the kids together and on of Walter and I to show that we are still in existence.
