What a weekend!
So trick or treating was wonderful. We went to a different down town area this year. Lots of people and lots of fun. One home even made their entire first floor into a walk through, kid friendly, haunted house. Indigo thought it was just about the best thing he had ever done. He would not let me help him with his basket at all. "I DO IT!" was all I heard. We had a brief run in with a super creepy Michael Myers, as in Halloween the movie, but it was brief and funny in a weird and creepy way.
The switch witch made her first visit to our home and it was a huge hit. She took the candy (the boys figure she will use it to give trolls and ogres belly aches) and left little knitted gnomes and dust pans and brushes. What can I say, they love to help to clean. The gnomes have become the new bed time buddies.
Saturday, we went here! It was a short but steep hike. The view was spectacular.
We went for this.
Ya! pretty amazing! We really love these guys. Who else would I allow my legs, to burn and wiggle like jello the whole way up and down the mountain and then flat out refuse to work at all for two days for? Ok, i'm slightly out of shape. Any way, the wedding was gorgeous! The hall, decorated with gourds, pumpkins, leaves and lighted branches with leaves made from pictures of the couple. The food, all home made local goodness, soups, breads spinach salad, yum YUM! Quite possibly the best wedding we have ever attended. We had a great time celebrating with one of the sweetest, most hard working, hard playing, and enjoyable couples we have met. Congratulations S&A!
