here we have Daddy Pirate, Mama punk-ish witch, Wizard baby, Pirate-Zombie-Gothic big sister, Pirate big brother, and bumblebee Lils.
a fun time was had by all! i forgot to take pics of the awesome jack o lanterns. much candy was gathered and consumed...though i also paid out $8 in candy purchasing from 3 children (80 pieces @ .10 apiece).
yesterday we celebrated a special 12th birthday for Grace, complete with homemade chocolate cake, ice cream, more candy, and a before bedtime '12 times the Sun' birthday ritual. Lils held the earth and walked around the Sun 12 times, we told a story about Grace for each year. hard to believe it's been that long. what a joy Grace is.
