Despite the rain, there were kids everywhere in the neighborhood. It was great! Jake was Mario this year and what a cutie! Mario is a little chubbier than Jake so I kind of thought he looked like a blue pencil with a big red eraser.

We went to Olive Garden for an early dinner and then back home for trick or treat!

See? Skinny blue pencil, red eraser!

Add 1 mustache!

We had a great night and the rain started again right as we turned onto our street to walk home!

What a haul! He had a very full pun'kin!

Even Bella got a new toy!

That toy is now toast! No toy will get the best of Bella!

I LOVE Jake's costume!! Jojo wanted to be Mario this year too, but we couldn't find a costume anywhere! He finally settled on a Power! It rained here too....but not enough to ruin our good time :)

Hi Jan -- I got here from a comment you made on about Bella. What an adorable puppy. Please buy (or go to the library) "It's Me or the Dog" by Victoria Stilwell. She uses 100% positive training. I love her methods and they work. Try her -- she can make your puppy's life and yours a happy one. Good luck!

Love the family house and it's story . . . gotta spend some time here and read more.
