A Grand Time . . .


brought everyone home

the three soups were yummy

but took second fiddle to

ten month old elijah's coos and cuddles

plus two year old oakland's chatter and energy

then of course there were

pumpkins, lights, candies

the parade from house to house

and treats no tricks


a bit overwhelmed at first


it helped having mommy and daddy nearby
sea turtle little one
mommy as a mermaid
daddy as a shark

soup was grabbed on the run
some in costume, some were not
mister irish stayed back to pass out treats
the rest of us took off for the neighborhood trek


oakland hesitated at first

but then she grabbed my hand and took off

there were fourteen of us

backing her up

so much fun

as we walked up to one house

oakland turned around

looked at me and said

"I've got this GG".

from the mouths of babes

. . .

it's the little things


White Chicken Chilie Was Voted The Favorite

It looks like you all had a fun time on Halloween. Nice to make it a family affair and to have homemade soup before hand. The sea turtle costume is cute on the little guy.
