Trick or Treat '09

This year's costume for my 11-year-old:

At least we did deviate a bit from the standard black hood/cape, scary monster mask and weapon... Jace liked the silver wolf mask, so I found a flannel (well, just plaid- they didn't have any flannel) shirt at Good Will and he and I cut the sleeves off and cut holes in it.

He had a fun evening with friends Connor and Sam; we (Gail, Dan and I) accompanied the boys and Caitlyn around the neighborhood. I have to admit that in previous years we adults enjoyed a little wine in coffee cups as we walked, but this year it was so chilly that we decided that coffee would taste wonderful and keep us warm!
Quiet weekend otherwise; now Dave's out of town in KC all this week, and my big project of the week is to stain our deck. He powerwashed it today before he left, and we picked up 5 gallons of stain. The weather forecast is calling for sun all week, so hopefully I'll have a bit of daylight after work each night to make a good dent in things over the next few days.
That's all for now.

Glad to see Jace decided to change things up this year with the costume! Although it appears his buddy in the picture kept it alive! :)

Good luck staining the deck!! At least it is going to be beautiful outside!
