Happy Halloween

Halloween is big in Goleta...schools host Fall parades or just plain old costume parades, parties abound and my kids are amped.
Brandon School goes the Fall Parade route and let me just say how thankful I am that I don't have to get a costume on my two kids twice in one day. It's quite creative, too. Elly was very proud of being an ancient stone, but I couldn't quite get what Tate was. Something about a verb. The Dos Pueblos Band came out to help parents and kids get in a festive mood. I love this community...we even knew a few band members!
Newt is at a Halloween cross roads. Dressing up? Not so fun. He has no idea what he'll wear tonight and neither do I. Beautiful.
Elly has been planning her costume for over a month...a devilish groovy girl type of thing complete with sparkly cape, glittery horns and a sassy, flippy thing around her waist. Ever the designer. Gone are the fairy princess days, I guess. Tate was a sad looking thing in his poor man's costume. I liked the sign, however, and think it will serve him well this evening.

Best news of the day, my good writing friend, Laura Elliott made her debut as an official journalist...and in the LA Times, no less. Congrats Laura on a great article...A Visit to Count Dracula's Castle in Romania. Check it out here.

  1. Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. (If he will be possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll I thankful, bye friend).
