We took the kids to some friends for dinner. We visited a few of their neighbors then made our annual trek to the Ambassador, a nursing home not too far away. The residents love seeing the kids all dressed up. There are several people we've come to recognize from years past and it's good that the experience isn't just about the candy.
The next day we had a medieval feast! What a project that was! Zachary made most of the mincemeat pie. Quinlan didn't like cutting the meat because it was too yucky, and he didn't like stirring the fruit because it was too hot. So he watched. :) Zachary had a great time running the food processor and helping with every dish that we ate. There was a lot of food and it was all actually pretty good. We won't be doing this every year, but it was fun to have something different.
