Halloween weekend at Casa Francisco!

Part of the fun of this year's Halloween weekend is that we got to spend the majority of it with the DeCostanzas. Luke and Lina are quite the adorable pair, so being able to experience pumpkin patches and trick-or-treaters through their eyes was a treat in itself.

On Saturday, we all went to Kuipers Farm with our neighbors, Monica and Carlos, and their kids, Angel and Natalie.

Halloween itself started with church and watching the Chiefs pull out a win against the Buffalo Bills. We came back to Casa Francisco, filled a large bowl with candy and took a blanket out to the stoop to pass out goodies to neighborhood kids. Lucky for us, there were two busy bees to help out.

[violet was an angel - perfect, right?]

[we never got around to carving our pumpkin - lame, I know - but the D's did a great job with theirs!]

Great Catch-Up : Heath goes to Portland

Heath traveled to Portland for a historical conference and had the pleasure of spending some additional time with our good friends, Paul and Wendy.

He had a great time visiting with them, getting their tour of the city - which included great donuts, pizza, coffee and beer.

[if not for a little facial hair and more weight, this could be a scene from 1995]

[again, heath chose not to use the camera he was provided, so these few shots came from wendy]

Great Catch-Up : James and Katie's Wedding

As you can tell by two wedding posts in such close proximity - our fall had a nice marital theme to it. :-)

In James and Katie's wedding, Heath had the honor of serving as the best man. He neglected to use the camera he took with him for the bachelor party in Atlantic City earlier this summer (hmmm...), but I do know that he almost passed out after a meat-eating contest (which he lost). Enough said.

The wedding itself, held in Santa Monica, was much more classy.
