This evening we celebrated Solstice by going for a night hike at Jester Park. They lined a short trail with lanterns and luminaries and then had hot chocolate and smores afterward.
Time for our annual Costco Christmas tree!
For the second year in a row, we went to the Connors’ for Thanksgiving, in Kansas City. Fun was had.
I guess a more apt title for this post would be “Beggars Night 2019,” but I feel like I am already committed. This year we trick-or-treated on a Wednesday night. Elliot, Lucia, and Rose dressed up and ventured out and Andrew and Mari stayed home to pass out candy.
We carved some pumpkins. All of the kids participated this year, some more enthusiastic than others. I can’t remember who likes digging out the insides. I think Lucia.
Another year, another Valentine’s Day dinner at Panera. We’ve done this nearly every year since Andrew was born, with just a couple exceptions for other plans or lack of a Panera.
