Default blend shape problems

hello maya people, I have a question for the maya masters out there. I have a character that I am animating. everthing is working fine except for the blend shapes. For example, I have the character walking and coming to a stop. Once I begin morphing the face, the mesh levitates back to the origin. I reset the shape and it returns to the shoulders of the character. I remember there being an editor in maya where I can change the hierarchy of what was done first in the scene (like mesh transformations, skeletal rig, blend shapes). Its been a while so it escapes me at the moment. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks,
Kevin

Try some different combinations and see how it goes. Pick one that works, of course.
