Halloween Fun

We had lots of fun yesterday for Halloween. Max had a party at school and I took Miranda and we helped out a bit. Poor Mitchell had a fever and a sore throat on Thursday, so he had to stay home and miss his party on Friday. The room mom who hosted his class party brought by a treat bag for him, which I thought was definitely above and beyond!

We went to our friends', The Dohle's, house for chili and trick or treating and had lots of fun. Today we have our Trunk or Treat at church. So much activity!
Matt and the boys and Matt's dad worked hard last week on our pumpkins. Max showing off his pumpkin that he designed.
My favorite pumpkin (created by Matt) on display in the front yard.
Miranda has learned to open the fridge! I may have to go buy a fridge lock!

Great News

Halloween pictures to come, I promise...

More importantly, our friends Jimmy and Emily are bringing their son, Samuel home on Wednesday!! Emily has been in Antigua fostering Samuel since before I went down to pick up Miranda. She was a blessing to me, helping me find a place to stay when the boys and I were in Antigua with Miranda. I'm so excited for them!!! Here's a pic of Samuel. You can also read their blog (The Armstrong Family)--the link is over on the right.
Samuelito, I'm so excited for you that you're coming home!!!
