Edgar is so spooky, isn't he? I think he needs a cauldron.
Truly, there is much Halloween disappointment going on at our house today. Poor Beebs is sick with a fever and can't wear her witch costume to school and participate in the Halloween parade and party. I wish she didn't have to learn the "life is not always fair" lesson today...
We had a really great weekend visiting with my mother and sister. We so seldom get visitors out here that it makes it extra special when we do. It was kind of a last minute trip too, so we didn't have any grand ideas about what we should be doing. It allowed me to introduce them to the wonderful midwest tradition of grilling brats and having a beer. (My sister is the one with the curls.)
We got them up in the attic too. Mom is an architect and Lizzie is an engineer, so it would have been foolish to have them over our house without asking them to inspect the this-and-thats of our house renovation. Everything looks OK, but I don't really ever want to try to convert the attic into a liveable space, no matter how nice it would be. It's just too much.
Sometimes when your grandma is an architect, you make doll house jack o lanterns instead of scary face jack o lanterns. It was a really big hit with Beebs, who especially liked making witch Barbie scoop out the muck herself and then eat it.
