Quite a different Halloween this year. I felt it had already passed because at the office we are working on Thanksgiving. Maya has outgrown trick-or-treating. Ellie is old enough to go without me. I am grateful that I was able to work from home just to be around for it. And thankful that Ellie had enough time and energy to carve a pumpkin. Our family traditions that have stuck: Charlie the skeleton was given to us by Grandpa Bob many years ago. One of our few decorations - he must always sit on the front porch. Lucky's third year in our home and the girls made her wear the tutu again. Such a sweet sleepy ballerina puppy.
