Eloise got excited about Halloween this year. First we carved a pumkin on the patio...

Tnen we went up to San Fran and visited with the usual suspects. Grumps, Erica, Greg, Theo, auntie Drea, and uncle Xavo. The Bean was in rare form. Her ducky costume was totally imprompu, but she got lots of compliments on it. It didn't take her long to figure out that Halloween is about ringing the bell and collecting the loot. She was shy at first, but she picked up toward the end of the evening.  My teeth are still a little twangy after several dozen almond joys. Eloise was also quite taken with baby Theo -- quite an adorable little man!

Check out the feet! QUACK!

Trick or TREAT!!
