A lucky twenty of us began our "Messiah Event-Filled Weekend" with a boat cruise of Newport Harbor - an auction purchase. It was a perfect day for the cruise, the food and drink were wonderful, and the company delightful!

Following the boat trip, many of us "gilded the lily" by heading to a Supper Club Halloween Party. Ah, the witches! And Joyce makes a great "couch potato" (although in spite of appearances, she really cooked up a great meal and an elaborately decorated and atmospheric Halloween House for our event! Need I say - great good fun was had by all!

The "Messiah-Event-Filled Weekend" ended with Oktoberfest - a smashing success, replete with 14 piece band, Bob Streutker's home-brew,German sausages, red cabbage, and potato salad. Wonderful event! The beer-and-band even fueled some dancing! Great good fun was had by all!

Jack had a "Halloween Sleep-Over" and we went to Disneyland (yes, that jack o'lantern IS Mickey Mouse in pumpkin form!) where even his favorite goats in the petting zoo sported Halloween bandanas around their necks. Home to put jack o'lantern faces on cookies... A fun (if exhausting!) day was had by all!

Taylor had no school today, and we have been trying to find a date for a "Nail Spa Day" and lunch for a belated birthday celebration. We began with a sleep-over with Jack and Alex - who delighted in their older cousin's attentions! - and the next morning Taylor and I started off on our own adventure.
