our jack o lanterns all in a row.
creating quite a fright and
casting a glow on the street where cats and bats roam in the night.
jorden and becky recently moved to the cutest neighborhood in placerville, where vines grow on storybook cottages and spanish tile rooftops and adobe walls soak in gentle afternoon sun. little lights along the windows and cats out for strolls, yards full of flowers and gardens and birds.
we spent a cozy evening at their new house, and baby oliver got to reach inside a pumpkin for the first time in his sweet little life. like usual, he was fearlessly curious and observant, busy and focused and taking it all in like a little scientist.
here are some pictures from that night.
cousin alowyn was visiting and she loves pretty things and to do hair. she is quite a conversationalist too.
the dogs lazily stood watch over the whole thing and later posed with our jack o lanterns on the porch.
since then we've dressed up, spooked out, and spooked out some more. i hope you are all enjoying a delightful all hallow's eve full of tricks, treats, disguises, and spirits. i'll be at the bookstore dressed up as pippi and handing out candy to the endless parade of small town trick-or-treaters!
