For once I have this year's Halloween party photos ready before the actual date of Halloween... Sara and Diana, sadly, had to miss the party due to a conflicting Girl Scout event, but Timothy and I went and enjoyed the usual activities: crafts, races, playing on the playground and in the bounce house, parading and showing off costumes for the kids; conversing with each other and vaguely keeping an eye on their kids for the adults.

Timothy's lizard mask, predictably, didn't stay on for long. We had the usual assortment of princesses, superheroes, and commercial costumes, but also as usual some very creative and original home-made costumes; my favorite was the boy who showed up as a bunch of grapes (green balloons attached to his shirt).
