Last night, we had our Halloween party. Everyone showed up, there were lots of kids here, and it actually went very well. Even our friends from Cambridge/Arlington were able to make it to the party. The kids pulled open most of our board games, and made up their own versions of the games. Annika quietly sat on my lap all evening, in her cat costume, taking it all in. She went to bed at 7 and slept through the rest of the party. We went through about a case and a half of beer. One of our neighbors brought over a homemade cake in the shape of a ghost, with white coconut frosting - yum! Another neighbor brought chips and a homemade dip. I didn't have a chance to take many photos, but the photos I took are up on Flickr.
And Annika is actually taking to the peas now! The key was to feed her well in between bottles.
Tonight is trick-or-treating and a little after-party across the street.
