It's finally autumn, although up until a couple of weeks ago you wouldn't have guessed that with how warm it's been. And in typical Utah fashion, we went from beautiful 70-degree weather to a few days with temps in the 50s, and then it's been 30 degrees if we're lucky for a few days. Go figure. But before the cold had time to set in we took advantage of being outside. Our neighbors had a humongous leaf pile and if we took our eyes off Mira for a second we would find her like this:
My job, of course, was to take Mira trick-or-treating, and my mom came along for the event. I just threw an outfit together at the last second. I think I'm a goth jester or something. I thought it looked cool and Halloween-esque. Mira, like almost every other little girl under the age of 8, wanted to be one of the princesses from Frozen, although there were significantly fewer Annas than Elsas so at least she had that going for her.
This is out of order, but whatever. For Rosh Hashana/Yom Kippur we went to my my sister's for dinner. Mira is unfortunately still in that in-between phase where she still refuses to nap or have anything resembling quiet time but still obviously needs the extra sleep - as evidenced by this:
I absolutely love these pictures of me and my sisters. We're a good-looking group, huh?
I also love these pictures of my mom reading to Mira. Reading books is about the only thing that will get Mira to sit still for any length of time. Also, yes, her feet really are that big.
