Sarah stayed with her very first babysitter last night. I guess she cried for a few minutes, but then was fine. We woke her up for a few minutes after we got home from dinner. She was a little shaken up. Then I began telling her how proud I was of my brave girl! She got the biggest smile on her face. We crossed a very important mile stone. Hopefully Juergen and I can get out more and more. We had a super time with our friends. There were 8 of us eating a feast at a Chinese restaurant. I miss my friends! I have great friends!

Today is Halloween. The kids will probably go trick or treating for an hour tonight. Then they are going to an alternative party at a local Baptist church. Sarah has a number of costume options. We haven't decided what she will wear. Philip is going as Spiderman, and Thomas isn't sure yet either. We have a costume trunk...and he has choices. I would love to see photos of your kids Halloween costumes. If you have a link to your child’s costume on a blog, please add it to my MR Linky. Have a very sweet and safe day!
