What a fun few weeks we have had here in the George family. From Hayden's happy 3rd birthday to trips to the fire station and zoo and then on to Nauvoo, we have been busy! To start things off, here is a peek into our Halloween festivities this year. Hayden was the worlds cutest Superman and Coco Bean was the smoochiest little zebra ever, if I do say so myself!

I wish we had a picture of all of the little Superhero's in our neighborhood. There was some major hero power out this weekend!

Halloween weekend, we also had a ward temple trip to the Nauvoo temple. We drove up Friday morning with all of the youth from our ward and hit some of the sights. Then, the next morning we went to the temple and then raced home for all of the Halloween festivities. Here we are in front of the temple and Hayden by the beautiful statue of Joseph and Hyrum Smith.

Here is Hayden having a great time making some rope at the Family Living Center. He then got to take it with him and it is his new favorite thing. He says he is now a real cowboy. Who knew a little rope could make the boy so happy! Simple pleasures, right!

A few weeks ago, my friend Maggie set up a tour of our Fire Station for all of the little boys and Hayden thought he had died and gone to heaven! He got to drive the fire truck and got his very own fire hat which he wears daily. I also somehow got volunteered to wear the fire man gear. Boy is that stuff hot and heavy! I don't know how they do it! Hay called me a "Fire Girl" because I'm not a definitely not a fireman.

Nate also had an open morning last week, so we stole him away from work for a trip to the KC Zoo. It was a little chilly, but no one there, so we had the whole place to ourselves. They have a new polar bear exhibit that was so cool! While we were watching, the polar bear was swimming laps and showing off like crazy. He would come right up to the glass, and then push off with his huge paws and do a backwards dive - all with you just inches away. It was amazing!

We also rode the train and carousal, which of course, were Hayden's favorite part of the day. Go figure!

Last, but definitely not least - my little man is now 3 years old!
IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!?!
We celebrated big with a party with all of his friends and he was spoiled rotten. He got so many fun presents and has been in hog heaven ever since.

By the end of the night, we were all dog tired - Cora even passed out mid party. Poor girl!

To end, here are a few random, but darling pictures of my littles. I just can't get enough of them! Could Cora's chubbers cheeks be any cuter! I swear, they just keep getting bigger!

Ok. Everything you do/wear/write is adorable. I just love you and MISS you. I wish I could just squeeze little Cora! It's so fun to see how wonderful life is for you!

BTW, before Cora was born, you posted pictures of all the things you had sewn for baby boy's bedroom and baby girl's room and accessories. UNBELIEVABLE, KATE! I was in awe. You are so talented! xoxo
