We had a really great day yesterday – probably the best Halloween I’ve had since high school!

Now, granted, I finally finished our family fox hats two days ago, so everything got pushed back and I was carving pumpkins at lunch time on Halloween day while Ali took a nap.  But, I found a great station on Songza playing old spooky jazzy music and made a great time of it.

Then I got Ali dressed up and we headed to Corey’s office for afternoon trick-or-treating and general showing-off of baby.

After that, we had dinner at our old favorite Mexican restaurant (used to be 1 minute from our old apartment, and now we live way too far away…)  I proposed this as a strategic move to miss rush-hour traffic, but really I just had to have chips and salsa…  Also – this crazy lady kept bugging us – taking pictures of the baby and telling us very random stories.  I had my very best awkward “Sookie-trying-to-be-normal” smile on my face, but in my head I’m thinking:  “Thanks for capturing this cute pic, but get outta here, creeper!  I just want my bean dip!”

Finally, we made it home in time to hand out some candy to our cute neighbor kids, and venture down the street to see some other friends.  Then we all plopped on the couch and watched a couple episodes of American Restoration while Ali wound herself down.  All in all, a great day!
