Belated Halloween Greetings

Once again I've managed to get behind in blogging and Halloween in blogland swept past me

We had a small Halloween party for friends children and took them trick or treating followed by chilli to warm us up - it was soooooooo cold

I can finally share some photos of the Halloween themed baby shower we hosted for my sister in law... sorry it's photo overload!

Mum made a big effort to decorate the outside of our house this year

It was a nice welcome for some new visitors to our home

Inside was decorated too of course

As well as serving chilli with rice, shepherds pie and roasted vegetables we did a sweet table with lot's of home made goodies and treats I picked up in LA

My sister in law LOVES Nightmare Before Christmas so a friend made this fantastic cake

Here's mum to be opening presents

And we even had my friends 5 week old daughter for baby cuddles

It was a successful day that everyone enjoyed.... just waiting for Baby B to appear now!
