The kids had a very Happy Halloween this year! Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa, Stephen enjoyed adding his scary mask to his cute cowboy outfit this year. There was at least no blood involved, so even Daddy approved. You could say that Halloween was big in my family growing up and we enjoyed everything scary. Grandma and Grandpa still see to it that the kids have an acceptable time on Halloween. Rhea, however, gave Mommy one more year of cute, but I'm sure that will change next year. I tried to get a picture of them together, but it was way too cold and they were not amused.

One of my best memories of college was coming home to my two kitties. I would always see them sitting on the balcony of my third floor apartment when I came home and I looked forward to spending time with them at the end of the day. Caly was my snuggler. She didn't like to be kissed, but she loved to be held. Next came the husband that didn't like cats and she of course adopted him. Over time, two kids and a master's degree later, she preferred him to take care of her. He was at her side in the end and purred herself to sleep in his arms. We love you, Caly.
