Happy Halloween!!

Today is Halloween and we're on our way home!  YAHOO!

Hannah woke up this morning yelling.."TRICK OR TREAT...TRICK OR TREAT, SMELL MY FEET..."  It was SOO cute! 

I'm excited to be home and go trick or treating in our own neighborhood.  OOO..I can't wait.  Then we have two days or down time..then Monday and THEN Tuesday, Pauls parents are going to be down for a few days on their way down to S. Texas for the winter. 

 

At the first hotel all 3 girls sleeping together!

DSC02736The girls sleeping at the hotel.  In the SAME bed for the VERY FIRST TIME!  Not too bad..Sarah ended up sleeping on the floor(B/C she fell out of the bed) ..BUT, Sam & Hannah slept together all night.  SOO SWEET!

Family shot...less Brooke & Nicole.   They were missed dearly and i don't mean, just to baby sit the girls..although that would have been nice!  Of course we did have Jeff's little girls who were loving on our girls and helping them climb up and down the stairs..thanks Abagail & Rebecca! 

DSC02798  Uh, i'm not sure who the other sweet little girl was, helping the girls..I'm pretty sure it was Linda & Kurts daughter..i'd love to know her name so i can add it to my pics & thank her!  She was soo sweet...but i didn't even get to thank her for helping out.

What a lot of wonderful pictures. How nice that you were able to get a picture of all of the family (mostly) even in a time of sadness. It still looked like it was lovely to see family.
LOVE the pictures of the three girls sleeping together. VERY SWEET!
