The girls went to a Halloween party last night! They had so much fun with our playgroup!!
Emma and Ellie loved dressing up in costumes!! As we walked up to the front door Emma said "I love you Momma!"
I love you too honey!
This is Lily! She has been home from China for about 6 weeks! Her Momma and her Daddy waited 50 months for her- she was so worth the wait!
We had 4 new children and 2 new families join us at the party!!
It is so much fun getting together. No one understand adoption better than adopting families! We have an instant bond!!
A couple families had already left by the time we took the picture! As you can see there are no boys in the group- Sam is going to need as buddy! He is so outnumbered!(there actually are 2 boys- 9 and 7 yrs old that were not at the party)
Today we went to Boo Blast in Wayzata- a little nearby community that was welcoming trick and treaters! We rode the trolley from one shopping center to another shopping center for more trick or treating! The girls were thrilled with this concept of saying a few words "Trick or Treat" and someone would put candy in their bag!!
We had a wonderful day! The kids enjoyed every minute of it! Emma and Ellie really don't like candy very much but the whole concept of getting stuff amazed them!!
We met up with our friends and spent the afternoon together!
They got candy, silly bands, little gifts and much more!
At the local grocery store we had a free lunch- hot dog, chips, carrots and mini pop!
Even the hair salon participated! This is the first time we ever did anything like this and it was so much fun! This wasn't an option when our big kids were little. It safe and not scary!
Then we trick and treated in the grocery store- at one of the stops they got chocolate milk! I enjoyed the Saturday samples!
The train is always a big hit! Here it comes zooming by!
It's impossible to get everyone looking the same direction! Oh well, I tried!
Happy Halloween from a cat, a ladybug, a witch, three tooth fairies and a butterfly!
Cozy at home counting their treasures! Johnny's doing a little bargaining for some candy! Thank goodness he has sisters that will share!!
