Back in the U.S.A.

Well a lot has happened in the past month. We moved an entire household of a mom, dad, child, 2 cats, a couple thousand pounds of furniture and at least 10 suitcases back to Snoqualmie, Washington. To make matters even more tricky for us, we were all accidentally dropped off at the wrong terminal in London and had to transport all the luggage below onto a terminal bus and make our way to another building. (without the help of a luggage cart for a large portion of our airport journey!) And upon our arrival in the US, we were selected to go thru a special luggage screening due to our living abroad for 3 years. But we made it!

We returned home just in time to experience an American Halloween. First stop was a local pumpkin picking farm. It was so warm and sunny our first week home. Millie even picked her own mini-pumpkin.

Later that week, Millie went trick or treating for the first time. Here she is showing off her "Pretty Pink Witch" costume. She had so much fun walking to the neighborhood homes and getting chocolate and candies. She's only two years old, but she's already got a bit of a sweet tooth!

A goofy, silly witch!

We drove into Seattle 2 weeks ago and no trip there is complete without a visit to Pike Place Market. I was happy to see the cat shelter man was still there with his very friendly cats. Those of you who have been to Pike Place market will know who I am talking about...

We all miss England. At the moment we are still getting used to life in the United States again. I forgot how many commercials there are on the TV, and it takes some getting used to having to use a car to get anywhere again...but we will adjust...I hope.
