happy Halloween

the latest look for 2018

Another Halloween has come and gone. This one was pretty succussful; the kids wore costumes and got candy, and after trick-or-treating our friends joined us for a lovely relaxed pot-luck dinner. The lead-up was a little stressful, since I'm not that good at sewing or organizing, but the costumes got made—today, except for Lijah's, which is a hand-me-down—the cookies got baked and packaged, and we even had time for one non-Halloween chore: finally planting the garlic, on what seems like the first almost dry day in weeks.

Leah asks if we'll get to relax a little now that Halloween is over. I don't think so... there's always something. Lijah (who had a hard time deciding on a costume and so picked out something for the next three Halloweens) asked, after supper, how long it was til Christmas. Wait, my son! We have to stress about Thanksgiving first!

Happy Halloween!
