Just a quick post to tell you all we had the best Halloween. The reason is because this is the first Halloween at our new house and our block was swamped with Trick-Or-Treaters. We were delighted because at our old house I think we had six in 16 years. I am not kidding.
There were all kinds of costumes, but these are the ones that were the most adorable and we were delighted to see so many parents out too. I think the kid with his head in a box was supposed to be a character from a video game of some sort.
The little girl in the blue wig and bright yellow rain coat probably gets the prize...her costume was just so unique.
But this kid stole my heart. He could hardly see to get up the stairs to our door...his Ninja Turtle Raphael mask was falling down over his eyes. Too cute!!!
Hurley loved all the company and watched at the door for quite a while. He finally got bored with it and went to lay down about an hour before we stopped passing out candy. The pumpkin on the porch was the first one I had carved in years. Not bad, eh?
|Me at the juried show Friday night|
The juried art show I mentioned in the last post was Friday night and was truly wonderful...a great crowd! It was such a diverse show with 60 works and I enjoyed taking it all in and visiting with some of the other artists. It will be up for a month and hopefully find a new home.
And this was from today. I sat outside to eat lunch and this was on the table. It is a maple leaf if you don't recognize it. I thought the reds and greens were so beautiful, it deserved its own photo shoot. So it got one.
I hope your weekend was just as wonderful.
