Halloween 2009





























Ryder's first Halloween started off a little bad. Our ward's Trunk or Treat was on the Wednesday before Halloween and he started running a high fever that afternoon, so we missed that. And the next day the fever was still around, and we were just praying he would get better quick since Paul's parents were in town late Thursday. And that didn't really go as planned either, since their plane was late leaving SLC, and they missed their flight out of Minneapolis. So they hitched a ride to Ames (by hitched I mean they met up with other passengers who missed the same flight and were going to Des Moines, and rode down with them). That turned out pretty good, but they got here very late Thursday night/Friday morning.
But, once Grandma and Grandpa were here, Ryder LOVED it! He got cool new toys from them that he loves, and he got to cuddle with them, which is rare for him. It was a hard weekend for him, trying to get better and all, but he did really well. We trick or treated down Main St., had his picture taken, ate yummy Great Plains pizza, watched Ice Age 3 (so cute!), watched Twilight, trick or treated around our neighborhood, and had Tracy's very yummy brisket! It was a good time. We can't wait to be in Utah again soon! Watch out, we're coming....
