Gavin was a dragon and Megan, who changed her costume idea about every five minutes, decided to be a ballerina. She was definitely channeling Dakota Fanning in “Uptown Girls.” I stopped on the Monticello Trail before the party and attempted a photo shoot, but the kids were much too interested in the leaves, sticks, and bugs on the ground. I got a few good shots, though.
While I got ready for the party, Christopher carved a jack-o-lantern with the kids.
The party was a hit, thanks to all the good help I had with decorations, crafts, and food.
