It was the night before the night before Halloween and much was accomplished today. I got a massage, did some errands and made a delicious butternut squash soup for supper. I didn’t even know what a butternut squash looked like before today, but somehow that crazy little gourd turned into a little miracle of a meal. I used a recipe from my sister - it has a Thai twist and it's the best soup I've ever tasted.

|I also made naan bread to go along with it. And pumpkin-shaped cookies for dessert (not pictured).|
Then we carved pumpkins, tried on costumes, and made up treat bags to hand out. In honour of my sister-in-law Joan who loved Halloween and was always very generous with handing out candy, I stepped up our offerings this year. When Spencer saw the baggies I had put together, he said, "Oh, we're going to be that house!" It's not so hard being that house when we only get about 20 kids.
