halloween, 6 months, and other adventures

I have a lot to catch up on, but I'm too lazy to do it in separate posts, so here it is in one post. 
I already posted about Logan's Halloween costume, but we did a few other activities for Halloween, and even more than I have pictures of.

We carved a Cookie Monster pumpkin, made spicy pumpkin seeds (yum), and I made meringue ghosts for a Halloween party I went to.  These were all even before Halloween! 
Halloween night we went to Payson--carved another pumpkin, made homemade rootbeer, and hung out with family.

November 3rd marked Logan's six month mark!

A few things our cutie pie has been up to:
-Trying rice cereal and oatmeal for the first time (he highly disappointed me by not even making a face. He likes it...)

-LOVES his daddy (he always has, but he can often be caught staring at Darrin now)

-He has found his thumb more often (he wants to be just like his cousin and mommy)

He has also:
-rolled over consistently
-started scooting on his back
-likes peek-a-boo
-started grabbing at faces

A week or two ago I was cleaning up our garden stuff before the frost came.  I was cutting all the basil off our plant and I went to cut one leaf off and noticed it looked weird. It turned out to be a leaf bug! I put him on the ground and sort of forgot....I squished him. oops!

Here's a bowl full of basil I picked from our plant and in the next picture the leaf bug above a very large basil leaf.

ah! real monsters

 Anyone else remember that really silly Nickelodeon cartoon? 
Anyways...Logan was a monster for Halloween. I really hope I can use this costume more in the future because I sure thought it was cute.  

I would love to say he was all smiles, but this was one of the few smiles we got on Halloween night from our little monster.  He was pretty neutral in his costume. I think the hood bothered him a little. He was always trying to eat it.

Getting ready to roll over. Yay! He FINALLY can.

 He was snuggled a little by Grandpa and his costume was really warm so he fell asleep for a while instead of going trick-or-treating. Oh well.

Logan's cousins came by after their Trunk or Treat. Maia as Ariel, Lilly as a butterfly, and Josh as Bumble Buzz (without his Bumblebee mask)

And now for the real monster...

This is the culprit for many nights of Logan waking up twice. Two canine teeth coming in at once! Can you see them?

Hope you all had a great Halloween!
And Happy Birthday to that baby born 57 years ago on Halloween--Dad!!
