Last Post Before Snow

This last weekend featured perfect fall weather. We filled the weekend with errands around town and projects around the house. On Monday afternoon it snowed, some of which is still on the ground today. So, this post is dedicated to the memory of our perfect fall weather last weekend.

Halloween was a mixed bag this year. Frannie got through trick or treating two houses when a boy came to the door in a full bodysuit costume that frightened her and at that point she was done with Halloween and costumes. She came home to sit with Daddy and hand out the candy, but even then she wouldn't come to the door to give candy to the kids, even the nice girls she knows from the neighborhood. Plus it rained pretty much all day, so when Miller came in after one block, the candy in his pumpkin bucket was basically sitting in a puddle. However nothing could deter Henry. He led the charge up and down our block and others acquiring an enviable stash of (also somewhat drenched) candy. This did not concern him at all. He promptly brought it in, dumped the whole thing out on the radiator in the dining room, and began to separate the fruit flavored stuff that he deemed his favorite this season - Skittles and Starburst in particular.
