Trick or Treat

Monkey had an excellent Halloween!! He was very excited to trick or treat, and on the whole did a great job of it. We didn't remember to take the camera in (or to use it) at every house we visited, so this is far from a complete record of our evening.

Mr. Z is sporting a custom made creation by Mrs. Z. We think that we are very witty. ;)
(Don't get it? Watch this.)

All night he was telling people, "I had a sucker!" Clearly, it was a very memorable sucker.

Aunt L is also impressed with the sucker.

Grandma provided us with light sticks, which were also a huge hit.
He had to show them to Grandpa T

So after this evening of big excitement, Monkey took a quick bath with his Halloween duckie (thanks, Aunt L!) and went to bed. In his reindeer pajamas. Merry Christmas!

Snow Day

No, it is not snowing here. Outside, at least. Inside is a different story: Monkey knows how to find snow no matter what the forecast. Just empty the paper shredder bin! Add trains and mix.

When Mr. Z discovered this lovely scenario this morning he asked Monkey what he was doing. "Making a snowman" was the response. Should we start a regular feature on the blog titled 'Weekend Morning Mischief'? Because it seems like we are generating a fair amount of material.

Pumpkin Patch Trip #1

One of our favorite holiday traditions is taking Aunt M and Uncle J to the pumpkin patch. A very good time was had by all!

It seems doubtful that we will only go once...Halloween isn't here yet!
