All Hallows Eve
We spent a low-key Halloween at Grandma Jacobsen's house helping her hand out candy to the various miscreants that came to her door. Tavin joined in the fun as we took him trick-or-treating up and down her street. This was a first for Tavin, and after we left the third house or so, he looked down at his bucket and then looked up at us and said, "Wow! We are going to get a lot of candy tonight!" Although he was dressed as a scurvy pirate (2nd year now), Tavin was a most polite trick-or-treater, offering the neighbors compliments and observations such as, "What a beautiful home!" and, after nonchalantly strolling into one of the larger homes, "Look at those stairs!" For those of you who don't know, we are renting a house without stairs (although we have a pretty nifty wheelchair ramp) so stairs never cease to amaze Tavin. Oliver was also a pirate, but squandered his pillaging time passed out on Grandmas bed.
