The Weekly Digest

Happy Halloween Eve! We’ve been whipping up some last-minute costumes for the kids, but I think Aron and I might be a bit bo-humbug this year. The plan is to carve pumpkins and make pumpkin delight tonight. Then, tomorrow, we’ll visit grandparents’ houses for some scavenger-hunt-style trick-or-treating, scoot around town during a Davis zombie bike ride, and watch a not-too-spooky movie with friends. The kids are still so excited about the holiday, despite some of the missing elements. How about you? Any fun plans?

This photo is from a Halloween a few years ago. Here are some more favorite couples costumes, including some we’ve worn.

Have a happy Halloween! And don’t forget to vote, if you haven’t done so already. Spread the word!!!
