We had a nice and busy weekend.

We started off Friday night visiting the kids cousins, aunt and uncle; along with poppy and gma ~ we laughed and ate and had a good time as usual. Cousin Joey has been wanting to have Mia over for dinner for about a year now ~ yes, even before she came home! The boys also made a yummy gingerbread (haunted ) house; which came out great!! Mia made herself at home and checked out her cousins house ~ she was all over!

Saturday morning we had dance class and the girls (Mia and her buddy, Meaghan) got to wear their costumes ~ my camera ran out of battery, but I also want to wait to "unveil" Mia's costume for there are no pictures of dance class (besides, Meaghan's mom and I are having a tough time of getting our girls to cooperate with taking pictures!).

Saturday evening we had some more relatives over to meet Mia ~ they showered her with gifts (and the boys) and we really enjoyed their company! Mia seems to be opening up more and more to people; but is still hesitant when they get "too" close. This is all fine and I am glad she knows who her parents are ~ her adjustment still amazes me!

Sunday our wonderful neighborhood "planing committee" had their annual Halloween party & parade ~ the kids always have a blast! There was yummy food, games, a parade and the mummy wrap contest ~ which Ed and Anthony participate in every year ~ it is always so nice to see neighbors we haven't seen in a while and see the kids in costume. Mia seemed to enjoy a small bowl of Halloween toys the most ~ I couldn't drag her away!
