Welcome to November!

How was your Halloween? Alex marched in his first costume parade, a tradition at his new preschool (Maya marched in it as well, back in the day). He went rogue and left the procession in order to climb up and go down the slide. He was a pirate, complete with ruffled shirt cuffs.

In the evening he switched into a cozy Cookie Monster costume. Maya was Belle. She is 7 and I have no idea how muh longer she will be into the princess thing, so I went all out with a dress from the Disney store and an elaborate hairdo. She was radiant.

After a pizza dinner and a viewing of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” we hit the streets. You would think Alex has been doing this forever, he was such a little pro. A good time was had by all and both kids were in bed by 9. Whew!

So . . . the election is NEXT WEEK. Wild.

What’s on your mind today? Chat away!
