Recap of the weekend

I guess I've pretty much thrown out my whole M-F themed post thing. It didn't seem to be working. More and more I am just posting about whatever tangents of family updates that I feel like posting about. I still like the Writing Wednesdays, but even those have been not so great.

So I did my hair on Friday, and Friday night I tried to wash it out. Saturday morning it still felt sticky though, and I still had paint on the back of my neck and stuff, so I decided not to do it again for Saturday night. Abby saw what I had done to my hair, and decided she did not want pink hair for herself. Just as well. Now it's Monday and I think it's out of my hair finally. Still need to wash my hairbrush though because that is looking pretty pink.

We did trick or treating in Montague (MA) Center, and had a blast. Saw some of Abby's friends from school, a coworker from the library, and a lot of people out having a good time. I'd never seen hot dogs and beer given out to trick or treaters before! We did attempt Shutesbury first, but no one was out yet at 5:20pm so we went to Montague. We had a little rain, but it didn't seem to stop the crowds. Great time! I hope we do it again next year. We might even look at houses in the neighborhood if we get serious about selling ours. I know they have internet there at least.

We didn't go to the Fairy Princess Garden. Abby wanted to find a pick-your-own-pumpkin patch so we spent Saturday afternoon looking. Never found one. Ate lunch at the BlueBonnet Diner in Northampton and watched the train inside and all the staff was dressed up too. Finally got a pumpkin from a roadside stand and brought that home just in time to make a jack o'lantern before going out.

After going to Montague, we drove up to Shutesbury but by the time we got there Abby was too tired to get out of the car so we went home. Pretty good meltdown at home from being so overtired and hungry, but we finally got her in the house. She gave up most of candy, more than I thought she would. I'll probably offer to give some of it back later. Didn't go to bed until really late, which helped with the time change in the morning.

Sunday was my dad's birthday. Abby decided early in the day that she wanted to stay home and play with her toys. In the morning she went outside to play in the leaves. I went grocery shopping and she stayed home with Aaron. When it came time to go to dinner, she still didn't want to go so I went by myself. Aaron and Abby stayed home, did arts and crafts, and had dinner etc. I had dinner with my dad and his friend at a Chinese place. Then we went to the hospital to see my grandmother. She was admitted on Saturday, but I heard she should be heading back to the nursing home today or tomorrow. Hopefully nothing serious.

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. She's in Florida so obviously no party for that.

Did I cover everything? I hope so. Hope you all had a good weekend!
Thank you Montague for a great Halloween!!
