to all our friends. This year was not like any other. Living in a small town with more vacation homes than permanent resident homes, we had no real place to go trick-or-treating. I don't even think the kids said the words "Trick-or-Treat" even once yesterday. So, instead of our traditional Halloween night, we went to carnival after carnival. First to the school then to the church and then to Addy's teacher, Mrs. Rienholdt's house for stew, games and pie. We had a marvelous time and was so grateful that Addy was feeling good enough to join in the fun (she had been really ill for 2 days and wasn't able to get out of bed. But at 5:30 on Hallow's Eve she woke up with enough energy to play.
