Halloween 2006

Well, Halloween has just ended, and sadly there were not as many displays in town as last year. The trolley went out of service during the summer, so there was no longer a tour of Halloween houses, causing less decorations. Of course, we decorated our house.

We also decorated the dry cleaners where Bill works.

I went to the store to help Bill pass out candy and we got our first trick-or-treaters at 4:23pm. We closed at 6:00 and had given candy to about 20 kids. According to the people who live in the downtown area, there were thousands, yes, thousands of kids through downtown by 9:00pm.

When we got home, our next door neighbor's grandchildren were waiting for us, I had made special baggies for them. Bill & I passed out candy to about 180 kids while we drank wine. We just about finished our second bottle when we ran out of candy. That's when our neighbors, Tom & Mitzi, came over to visit -- they had just finished off their 2nd bottle of wine. We had a terrific time. Halloween down here is SO much different than up north!!

EPCOT International Food & Wine Fest

EPCOT is having its International Food & Wine Festival during October & November, and we have already gone twice. There is such wonderful food and so many different kinds of wine to try.

We made the mistake of trying too many different kinds of food on one visit -- our stomachs were none too happy! But it was still a great day -- and we will be going back again!

We also went to a BEER TASTING sponsored by Samuel Adams -- it was very nice!!

We finished the evening off with champagne, chocolate, and a GORGEOUS sunset. It was a perfect day together!

Wedding of Nick & Eunjee Stewart

The weekend of Sept. 9th we went up to Boston for Bill's nephew Nick's wedding. We stayed with Bill's sister, Judie, and flew back on 9/12. It was wonderful getting to spend time with Judie, she is always so much fun, and the wedding was beautiful. Here are some pictures from the Rehearsal Dinner:

Nik & Eunjee; Bill and his nephew Nick; Nick and his dad, Doug, and Judie.

The wedding took place on Sunday, Sept. 10th (which was also OPENING DAY for the NY Giants -- I TIVO'd it!!) -- which turned out to be a bright sunny day - but the temperature was so cold -- at least to us, our blood has thinned!
The ceremony was beautiful -- Nick's dad, Doug, got a special certificate from the governor of Massachusetts to have the power to officiate at the wedding. It was a very sweet thing.

The food and drink at both the rehearsal and wedding was delicious. After the wedding, we went to the Marriott, where the wedding party was staying and had more drinks (and got to see the end of the Giants game!), and fun with Judie and the gang.

Stewart Wedding, cont'd.....

Eunjee looked gorgeous -- she had 3 different outfits: a white wedding gown she wore for the ceremony, a beautiful ceremonial gown she wore for part of the reception, and a pretty white dress for the rest of the reception.

Bill, Judie and I looked pretty good, too, If I do say so myself !
We had a wonderful time and are so happy for Nick & Eunjee!
