Store-sourced costumes this year, much to my chagrin. Laurel and Anne's were either gifts or hand-me-downs, and I had to get Dean a knight costume after realizing post-October birthdays and house packing, that the random sword and shield he was running around with didn't make him look like a knight..and goodness knows I wasn't going to get all jiggy with aluminum foil hoping to create some sort of breastplate..fortunately Melissa and Doug costumes were 40% off the day of! Whew!

They gave us zoo tickets to use after her recuperation; we enjoyed a beautiful October Saturday posing like animals.
Since reading Willa Cather's "Death Comes for the Archbishop", Luke and I have been desperate to see more of the Southwest, and his work conference provided the means. Great botanical gardens, great food, great downtown!
