Les bonnes choses by Maman Xuxudidi on Flickr.

Mourning the pecan tree over our backyard that the neighbor just cut down, making the sweet pecans scattered in bowls throughout the house limited and more precious.

It’s almost woodstove time!

It’s almost woodstove time!

Oh, crap

It’s 3:30am, and I’m pretty sure our whole family is getting sick, including at least one cat. Everyone is sniffling or complaining of a sore throat, and our friend Steve is driving here from Michigan as we speak to visit. Of course.

All Hallows Eve ‘11

Mike’s favorite holiday was, of course, a bit different this year but overall a success.  

He went on a Critical Mass zombie ride: 

We went to Marta’s famous Halloween party:

We carved pumpkins:

And finally, we ran out of $50 worth of candy in less than two hours with the many hundreds of kids trick-or-treating in our neighborhood.  It is really the spectacle.  We tried to take Alice to just a couple of neighbor’s houses, but she was fussy, and we aborted the mission.  As is fitting of my new status as mom, I realized at the end of the night, after decorating the porch, dressing Alice, feeding friends who came over, nursing the baby, and trying to take photos for posterity, that I hadn’t had a single piece of candy before it was all gone!  

I was happy with Alice’s mermaid outfit, and she actually liked it too.  (Maybe because the tail is sort of swaddle-ish?)  I had long dreamed of making my kid’s costume, and I loved figuring it all out.  

Next year is going to be fantastic, when Alice will actually be able to walk door to door and get excited by the festivities!  For now, we’ll treasure the memory of our sweet little mermaid on her first Halloween.
