Wow. What a busy month since the last post. The timing of the last update was ever so close to Halloween, so the delay in these pictures is unfortunate. Nevertheless, this year was quite a blast . Hadley could walk around in her costumes and hold out her basket. It was all quite cute. I say costumes because just as last year, she had more than one as last. She was both a bee and a monkey, as the pictures attest.
Also in the interim, we packed up the car and dragged Keri along west to Williamsport, PA to visit the lovely Great Aunt Ede. It is always a treat to see her and since we were not going to be passing through this year on the way to Chicago, we tried to make a special stop just to see her. So many Scrabble games were played and her spirits seemed lifted. While there, we also got the chance to meet another relative, Great Uncle Frank and Great Aunt Pam. Since they lived in Hawaii for so long and only moved back to the mainland in the last few years, this was the first time that the girls got to meet this particular branch of the Little clan. Having lunch with them made the trip all the more enjoyable. If only we could cut the drive down things would have been even better.
I recently spent a few days in San Antonio for a work related conference. While the weather was cool or a bit dreary most of the time, I got to spend a little time with Ali’s Aunt Joey while there. The conference was great, but kept me pretty busy the whole time. It was long time to be away from my girls too. Fortunately, I did get the chance to see a few sites the morning I was preparing to leave, just not as many as I would have liked, however.
That brings us up to Turkey Day, and I hope everyone has a good one.
