Lucy had her first "sleepover" this past week.
And if you're wondering what Lucy thought of trick-or-treating, I'd say she thought it was a blast! We really debated whether or not to take her out, thinking all the hoopla could be a bit much for a little one adjusting to a new life, family and culture. But, once again, she jumped in, figured it out and got the hang of it. I'm pretty sure she thought we were just visiting people the first few houses, as she would walk right in and help herself to toys or whatever else might entice a 2-year old. As she learned the ropes, we would leave a house and she would do the sign for "more". It truly made her happy to go around door to door, saying "hi" and filling her pumpkin. What a sweetie.
Lucy's homecoming, knowing they wouldn't really get to visit with us, and then drove back the same night (sporting "I Love Lucy" t's, I might add). Wow. We'll never forget the sacrifice they made to be there for one of the most important days of our lives. Thanks, friends. You are tried and true.
