It was very windy and a little wet, but we seized the late Saturday afternoon to build a campfire in our backyard. We toasted bologna cheese sandwiches for a fun dinner before we went trick-or-treating.

Avril was all bundled up, of course. You can see her two teeth coming in on the bottom.

My big girl Norah helped toast her own sandwich, that is... until she almost swung her red-hot toaster around and hit me and the baby with it. Sigh... But, the pictures turned out nice.

Norah's costume turned out fantastic, if I may say so myself. She ended up loving it. How do I know? Besides the fact that she skipped everywhere, looking down at herself, almost running into walls all night, when I put this on her, she was overcome by joy, grabbed my neck, hugged me and said, "I love you so much, Mom!" Sniffle. Sniffle.

And, that's not a real knife, by the way. We covered her plastic toy kitchen knife's handle with masking tape, which Norah then painted brown...

This is one child's take from walking two blocks. Just two blocks! When I was a kid, we had to trick-or-treat for miles, up hill, both ways! and we still came home with mostly Smarties and Sweet Tarts!
