My only hope for this Halloween was that the weater was better than last. It's hard to enjoy Halloween when you can't hold your bucket of candy because your hand is so cold you can't feel your fingers around the handle.

This year was great. It was rainy and misty, but the downpour let up around 5pm so we took advantage and headed out with our super hero (Hawk Girl) and pirate.

They went hand in hand to the first door while we waited back on the sidewalk. Grace watched her big sister and followed like a pro. We had a great turn out this year. A lot of visitors stopped by, and we covered a decent amount of ground going door to door.

Hawk Girl for anyone who doesn't know is part of the original Justice League....Charlotte's Saturday morning cartoon of choice.

Some Time to Ourselves

W'eve been running around for months playing catch up. Between house projects, work projects, and just general life we haven't had much time to simple "be".

Oma is here this weekend, and given the time of year we decided to head to the arboretum to check out the fall foliage. The place was a madhouse, but a beautiful madhouse. It felt good to get out for the day. So good in fact that we signed up for a membership. I guess we'll make more time for just "being" this coming year.

Movie night followed.

Milestone: Grace First Hair Cut

Just like with Charlotte, we decided to do Grace's first haircut at home.
Charlotte sat close by watching in support.
The mister was armed with the squirt bottle.
I had the scissors. Eeeek.

She did great, and I managed to eliminate the rat tail.
I'll call it a win.
