Happy Halloween!

We went trick or treating in our neighborhood, Midtown Terrace, for Claire's first time. The little ladybug/Ladybug Girl had fun and lived ringing the doorbells. Sunapee came along for the walk in the light rain. We ran into some local friends, including Claire's preschool friends. She and Eva, the strawberry, spent the last bit joined together.

"Ready to go shopping!"

Claire prepared herself for a Target outing by packing her backpack, buckling Monkey into the stroller and grabbing Geraldine (the green owl). First stop was the produce section, where she picked up her bag of faux fruits and veggies and announced "I'm buying fruit!"

Great Uncle Tom

Matt's Uncle Tom was in town on business and came by to see Claire before we all went out for dinner (that is, Claire stayed home with the babysitter). Deb sent along some great books for Claire's library. Thanks Tom and Deb!

The Wind is Crying

After three glorious heat wave days, the fog has returned and with it the wind whistling in our one original 1950s window. Eating her dinner, Claire tells me, "the wind is crying, Mommy."

(The paper plate, odd island placement, and microwave mac & cheese are by-products if our full-scale kitchen renovation.)
