We had a good fall break in Branson with my family from Kentucky. We got to spend time with my aunt and uncle and their wonderful kids. Denver had a ball with them and loved all of the one on one attention. My uncle was the one that went with Grant to Ethiopia and we weren't sure if Denver would rememeber him but he did. He really took to him in a way that he doesn't ususally do with people. That was very exciting to see.
My gramps got to stay with us for a week before he moved in with my aunt and uncle in Houston and it was fun to see the interaction between Denver and him. They are both very stubborn so the staring contests were so fun to watch. It's funny how a 87 year old and a 1 year old can butt heads but they did. I will say they did enjoy one anothers company but you can tell they are both used to getting their own way.
Halloween and trick or treating were a blast. I wasn't sure how Denver would do but he was a rock star. He didn't get scared of anything and he thouroughly enjoyed knocking on people's doors and saying trick or treat...and bye bye about 10 times per door. Needless to say we didn't go very far but he was so cute that he ended up getting his fair share of candy. Good thing his mama likes chocolate. Grant had to take the candy to work with him because I couldn't stop. I was seriously out of control and I was bribing Denver way to much with candy. He also enjoyed going to the pumpkin patch with his buddy Jackson, they had a great time together.
Now I will be quiet and post some pics because I know that's what most people care about anyways.
**Be watching the blog in the next couple of days because I have something exciting to post about!!!
No we are not adopting another kid yet but I am hosting a sugar cookie sale for a great cause so come back to check out the details.
