A Less-Than Happy Thanksgiving

Mommy jinxed us when she told Grandpa how we've all been so healthy for the last month or more...and I woke up last night with a high fever that has been slowly getting better all day today, although the doctor said I should probably take some antibiotics for my runny nose and fever.
Before I got sick, I have been taking full advantage of the 60-degree days by going for bike rides, long walks with Nicky, and playing in the park.
I'm ready for winter though, now that I have my new hat from Grandma. She sent my cute elves and hat for St. Nick's Day...I couldn't wait until then, though...and opened everything right away!
I kind of look a little like an elf myself! Maybe Santa will let me help with the presents this year.

Halloween Tricks and Other Treats

I continued my celebration of Halloween by wearing my special PJs all week long...
...and my really cool "scary girl" shirt that Grandma sent me.
So, as it turns out, Halloween is a BIG party in our neighborhood. We invited all our friends over to come have some chili and cider and candy with us. This year, the whole Back clan came to party, and judging by how much fun we all had, I bet next year's party is gonna be HUGE! Trick-or-treaters started coming to our house as early as 4:30...we got so many that we ran out of candy--twice!
We had so much fun passing out candy to everyone in the neighborhood, we forgot to go trick-or-treating ourselves!
A couple other things have happened since Halloween, but we've been so busy I haven't had time to tell everyone about it! Stay tuned for news of Auntie Susu's visit and other fun fall things I've been up to!
