For Halloween his year we went to a party with the kids homeschool group that they are still involved with.  Fun times and trick or treating.
Quite the spread!


Mama's costume...Can you tell what it is?

The pre-teens

Disco Deer

Most of the kids

 That night, Leigh had a friend come back home and attended a clinic the next morning in Tijuana with the rescue group she helps out with sometimes.
Of course she brought home a new foster that had been abandoned at the clinic.

We celebrated in typical traditional fashion with dinner and birthday ring at home and then out with fiends the next day for a movie (Goosebumps) and dinner (Soup Plantation) and a stop at Gamestop.

Lunar Eclipse

We had an excellent view of the lunar eclipse from our roof top deck!
It has been a little bit since then but the pictures were too excellent not to share.

The kids were not as excited as Bryce but they did bring blankets out of bed up to the roof and check it out...for a little bit anyway.

California Dreaming

One day when the kids and I went up to a homeschooling event in the states (and left daddy in the other country...)  we visited the cute little beach town of Imperial Beach.  It is very close to the border and because it was a very turbulent sky, it was basically deserted.  It was the funkiest little town and I think we will visit again

Family Celebration of Life

We stuck with our tradition of celebrating with our birthday ring
 and dinner chosen by the birthday person.

Leigh chose angel hair pasta.

There were two number '1's on the ring this year!

Then for the gifts.  There was one special one that she had REALLY been hoping for
but was still surprised to see.

Another year in the life

One more year for Leigh!
She planned her birhday party with homeschool friends at a park in Chula Vista.
She chose a spring theme and planned a game of pin the flower on the stem

with snacks for all

Excellent fruit cake made by Rose, mom of one of the homeschooling families from Tijuana

yellow and blue cupcakes

and finished up with a pinata filled with all sorts of interesting things.

I'm pretty sure she had a good day, spent with good friends
