Sweet Pea

Violet celebrated her first Halloween dressed as a pea pod! Initially, she wasn't sure about the whole costume concept, but warmed up to the idea and was happy to 'trick or treat' at the homes of a few close friends and neighbors, despite the fact that no actual treats were obtained this year. We enjoyed perfect fall weather - brisk but not too cold - and wrapped up the evening across the street with our friends Ralph and Arlene, where Violet was mesmorized by the flames from the small fire they had going in their front yard (as well as Ralph's gravelly voice and heavy New York accent). We're looking forward to her next major holiday first - Thanksgiving! The extended Swartz clan (with the exception of Kyle and Annett, who unfortunately can't make it from Germany ;) will be joining us and the Stickney family in Boise for T-day in just a few weeks!

Hi there kids!

She is so beautiful, her smile just lights up her face. Sounds like you are all doing well.
