More Paradisos

Even though we were not envious of all the snow the east coast received last week, Saturday we received our own dumping of snow. 

We also had the great priviledge of meeting another memeber of the Paradiso family (the brother of Debbi & Tati Paradiso - our girls from Argentina).  David, his wife Andrea and their 8 month son Santiago came up for Sunday dinner.  What a beautiful little boy with a mellow, happy personality.  Cousin Aly also joined us for dinner, we just love having Aly come hang out.  She was so nice to play some piano with the kids and listen to all the kids.  And she was the photographer for the Keller/Paradiso picture.

Trick or Treat

  Happy Halloween!  Since Troy was out of town Morgan, being 12 & unsure if she was too old to trick or treat, was put in charge of taking Ethan and Ana.  Her friend Hannah came over to help out and I think they had a good time.  Last minute Morgan pulled off a cave woman costume and was thrilled to be able to use the trick or treating bag she had sewn.
 Ethan, once again, opted to make up a Star Wars costume for the purchase of a new light saber.  Thank you Grandma for sewing this awesome Jedi cape, I believe this is its 3rd year in use!  Last year he was Darth Vadar.  Ana following in Ethan's foot steps wanted to be a storm trooper.  She and Ethan have recently watched a couple of the star wars movies - could you tell?  Ana always says she wants to be a princess or a dancer, but when it comes down to it she follows the boys with ninjas and storm troopers...

Grant was going to have some friends over, but one of the boys families was making scones and invited the boys over to eat and they ended up staying all evening.  A cute neighbor who is an exchange student from Chile invited Tanya over to help hand out candy with her.  She has been super nice and great for Tanya.  Tanya doesn't like to do things with the girls in YW or in the neighborhood, but she has gone with Angela when she has invited her to go shopping or to watch a movie.  Angela has been such a blessing!  Victor stayed home with me to help pass out candy and watch a movie - he's one that will go when invited, but it's pulling teeth to get him to call or invite someone over.  So a little late in the evening he tried to call a friend, but he wasn't home.  All in all I thought it was a great Halloween.

October 29th

 Last Saturday Grandma and Grandpa brought Grayce and Mason over to roast some marshmellows and make some smores, Tricia and Justin were stranded in Hawaii - poor people : ).  The kids all had a great time. Ethan was at a halloween party and Tanya was helping with the ward trunk or treat.
