Happy Halloween!

This year Ellie wanted to be Tinkerbell and Katie was a 70's girl. Ellie only knows about Tinkerbell because Katie has the movie! They both looked so cute and had a lot of fun! It would have been better without the rain, but kids don't care as long as the candy keeps on coming! We finished the night at our neighbor's Halloween party!

Loads of Leaf Fun!

The maple tree in our front yard provides Ellie and Katie will loads of leaves to jump in! Scott just keeps re-raking the same pile for lots of jumping!

Happy Birthday, Scott!

Today is Scott's birthday! Unfortunately, we have no pictures! We went to the Gwinnett Braves AAA baseball game. We sat out on the lawn, which was good for Ellie, since she could move around. It was supposed to be mostly cloudy today, but it turned out to be quite sunny and hot! We didn't make it through the whole game, but it was fun!

A day at the zoo

Ellie took her first trip to the zoo on Sunday. It was in the low 80's, which never happens in Atlanta in the summer, so we took advantage of the beautiful day! She really had a great time! The gorillas were really entertaining! A few of them came right up to the glass to check out the kids. They also have a new parakeet house. The birds fly around, and you can feed them with a seed stick (that you can buy for $1 of course). We all enjoyed a great family day!

First Friday pool party!

We had our First Friday group (families with children and families waiting for children from China) at Scott and Sharon's beautiful pool on Saturday! A couple of the families had left when this pic was taken, but what a great picture of those beautiful children (and their big sisters!). The newest addition to the group, a little boy named Ray, joined his family a couple of months ago. So sweet!

Feeling old...

Yes, Scott and I had our 25th High School reunion this past weekend! Yikes! It also came in handy as a little family reunion, since we graduated with my sister-in-law, and she of course brought my brother with her. We had a smallish turn-out, but a great time was had by all! At the sign-in table, some "kid" who was at the bar where the reunion was held, decided to inform the people at the table that "he was born in 1984!". He was "politely" told to go away!!

Fourth of July fun!

We went to our annual neighborhood Fourth of July party! Lots of fun, food, and kids all over the place! As the first firework was set off, Ellie came screaming into my arms! I sat in the house with Katie, Ellie and a few other kids during the fireworks show. We watch a bit of Happy Feet! Oh well, maybe I'll get to see the show next year!
