Happy Halloween!

...We had the Minnie Mouse costume all laid out... Pink and white polka-dot (or pocket doughnut, as Aud would say) dress... puffed sleeves... eye-lit bloomers... and, in the remote possibility that it actually got chilly, striped stockings to go underneath... but when it came time to change Aud would have none of it... "I not like it, Mom! It's too scratchy!" it was Nanny's brilliant idea to just leave the stockings on, add a few freckles, and call her "Pippy Longstocking."

I, on the other hand, was in "costume limbo"... intending to dress as a gypsy fortune teller... but looking more like a hippy wearing too much make-up... Dutch didn't mind.

Trick-or-treating at La Encantada was the best... when was the last time you walked into Tiffany's and the man behind the counter offered you a sucker?
