Today was Halloween. We were lucky in that our Halloween was not cancelled and postpones like many other towns near us. We were able to go trick or treating around our neighborhood, visit Memere and also Aunt Corrine. We even got Caramel Apple ice cream and Monster Mash ice cream at the Ice Cream Machine with Auntie Tara. Continue reading Halloween 2011
Tonight we celebrated Allison’s birthday. My sister Tara coordinated everything and even picked up Chinese food from her (our) favorite restaurant, Fortune House. She got all of the favorites including Sesame Chicken, Crispy Walnut Chicken and a couple of pu pu platters. It was delicious and our table was full. The table was full, not only of food but of fun conversation, family and friends (Trooper Mike came by too). I even came away with a few fortunes that I can work with tomorrow for my 15 minutes a day blog because they have Chinese words on the back.
After dinner we had an unbelievable ice cream pie from The Ice Cream Machine. It was a Peanut Butter Cup one and it was soo good.
Allison received some nice gifts including iTunes gift cards and a gift card form the yarn store.
Eva even received another gift, some cool clothes from Auntie Shelby including some cute boots that my Father helped put on her, and cut off the tags.
Then we showed Trooper Mike our white water rafting video from 2005. It was fun to watch those again.
