Does anybody need some candy? We've got candy. Niklas and Zoe managed to get out for trick or treating three times, beating their previous all time best record of one. On Saturday, we made the three block trek to Clark Street where we were able to shake down local business owners for a couple of baskets full of candy. Niklas's school had trick or treating (and a rousing rendition of Five Little Pumpkins which I had never heard of before this year but is apparently quite popular) yesterday which resulted in another bag o' goodies which unfortunately did not contain any peanut or peanut based items so it'll be hard to pry him away from any of that. Then last night, we went out trick or treating along a stretch of Dayton Street that is crazily decked out for Halloween and we got SO MUCH CANDY. I think they pulled in more candy in forty five minutes than I ever did spending hours canvasing the streets of St. Francisville. In conclusion, if you're in the neighborhood, see Thor and Miss Monkey for some candy.
Shockingly, Zoe hasn't said the word "candy" yet. Here's a list of words she has said (and used correctly):
Once we get some verbs going, we'll be rolling.
So, I still haven't posted any pictures from Halloween or the wedding the kids were in. I didn't mention they were in a wedding? Well, they were. Zoe insists that we publicly congratulate her Godmother Kendra and her husband Deric on their recent wedding while Niklas thanks them for all the cake. Right. Pictures.
Grandma and Papa Meeker came up with Uncle Eric for Thanksgiving. Niklas continued his tradition of trying to eat all of the cranberry sauce. He made it through, I would guess, at least three quarters of a can. Congratulations, Niklas! Zoe didn't care much for anything other than rolls and cranberry sauce even though this is the year I finally got the stuffing right. So I guess, in the future, I need to buy a ton of cranberry sauce.
