Cinnamon Rolls & late Halloween & other stuff

Told you I would post a picture.

These are to die for. I could eat a million of them.

On a completely unrelated note, Bennett was Tarzan for Halloween this year. I made his costume (no huge feat) and I think it turned out just right, albeit a little short. But that's ok, he would have had to wear pants under it anyway since it was so cold, and it probably made it easier for him to walk in anyway!

We couldn't resist having him be Tarzan since he has been able to beat his chest and do a little tarzan yell for months now. Bennett also cut 5 (yes, 5) new teeth on Halloween day- two top molars, two teeth on the sides of his bottom front teeth and one tooth on the side of his top front teeth (he already had the other tooth on the side of his top front teeth. Maybe I should learn teeth names so this isn't so confusing...). He ran a fever all day and pretty much sat in our laps and acted completely wimpy when he wasn't napping (napping took up more than 4 hours that day). It was a VERY relaxing Sunday!

In other Bennett news, in the last week, he has started signing to us regularly! He has done the sign for "more" for a few months now, but only if we would say the word first. Now he will do it all by himself. He also learned the sign for "please" in literally a day and the same with "thank you." He signs "help" a thousand times a day, which would be really helpful, if only it was always clear what on earth he wanted help with. Sometimes he will just sign help over and over and over and very clearly be trying to tell you something, but we just can't figure out what he's trying to get from us.

On another unrelated note, we went down to visit my brother Jared at BYU on my birthday a few weekends ago. Here are some pictures. Bennett loved playing with him and they had so much fun kicking around the pool table balls!

While we're on the topic of birthdays and since this is already the world's most disjointed blog post, I thought I would post a couple videos of the birthday trauma that we put Bennett through. This is the second birthday party we had for him with our extended family and, well, now the internet knows what bad parents we are.

He is seriously adorable. I love his little man face, so cute!

What a cute costume. He is getting so big now. Kate cut 6 teeth at once too. At least it was over after that.

This last video is so funny. If at first you don't succeed, try, try, again. It looks like you don't have a sweet-tooth! That's nice!

Um, bake me some cinnamon rolls, please. Those look amazing. And Bennett is SUPER cute--he looks so grown up in his costume! I was looking through some of your older posts and I think he and Forrest look kind of similar. Remember how we used to tell people we were cousins? I think we could get away with that same trick with Bennett and Forrest :-)
