A peek back at the beginning of M's birthday week.
Saturday, October 22
The morning started with soccer being cancelled because of the rain. (None of us were very sad about having a free Saturday morning.) That gave us lots of time to hear about J's trip and to see what souvenirs he had brought back. (This time there were model Eiffel Towers and toy British taxis and double-decker buses.)
Then my parents and two of my (3) sisters arrived to start celebrating M's 11th birthday. They showed up in their usual fun and surprising style. :)
A mummy cake for my "mummy" (whose birthday was coming up on the 24th) and M.
There was a long and intense game of Monopoly.

They were up and on their way bright and early. But first we took some photos.
And then we waved goodbye.
T was all dressed up in his finest for church. :)
Where we had a Safety Day with local organizations that serve our community.
A beautiful artist gave them the coolest face paintings. (A shark, unicorn and raccoon.)
It was a super-packed weekend, but very fun. :)
