#1 daughter and #1 son brought their families over for dinner. We had Frito Pie (a local delicacy involving chili and salad layered over a handful of corn chips), fruit, and cupcakes with Hallowe’en sprinkles. A kid-friendly meal. I also had carrots and cucumbers, which I forgot to put on the table.

We had some conversation and played with the baby. The idea of playing games was bruited at one point, but we had already spent too much time talking and playing with the baby. People needed to get home.

It was fun.
