Thanksgiving in Las Vegas

We had such a great holiday!  My parents flew out and visited for a couple of days, my brother blessed his baby, and we went to Vegas for Turkey Day.

Cormac LOVED Grandpa.  He got all bashful and sweet with my mom, and I think he even remembered her a little, but he really took to my dad, which was so fun to see.  He brought him books and toys, and wanted to sit on his lap.  I wish he got to see my parents more often.

Brock and Eliza blessed their baby, Mace, at home while we were all here.  It was nice of them to arrange that so the grandparents could be there, and my nephew is growing up so fast!  He's a big, happy boy.

Vegas was fun, too.  Cormac liked all the lights and colors, but he was scared of the water/fire/light shows outside the hotels.

We're just planning on staying home for Christmas, which will be nice and quiet, but it was fun to get out and do something different for a holiday.  Cormac did surprisingly well in the car, thanks to a dvd player on loan.  He's such a good sport, and a happy little boy.

This is Halloween

Cormac is still too young for trick or treating, but we took him to Vivint, where Scott works.  They had some trick or treating stations set up around the building.  Cormac... almost liked it.  He is terrified of elevators, so we had to stop freaking him out and take the stairs after a while!  He did love being told how cute he was and getting to put shiny, crinkly pieces of candy into his pumpkin bucket  :)

We borrowed a costume for him and, I have to say, he made the cutest cowboy!  I took him outside for some pictures, and I can't choose just one, so I'm posting quite a few:

Yep, he is ridiculously adorable.  We took a family shot at a friend's house, so hopefully I'll get to post that later.  Scott and I dressed western, too. 

Actually, Scott dressed differently for work, and he was wearing a hat (a fedora).  When we arrived for trick or treating, Cormac was so freaked out he wouldn't let Scott hold him until he took his hat off!  Funny kid.  He usually leaps out of my arms to get to his dad!  Scott put it back on after a little while and Cormac seemed to accept the fact that his dad could be the same person, in a hat.
