Halloween is one of Alice’s favorite times of the year, and as usual the requests to decorate ‘Alice’ commenced on Sept 30. I managed to hold out for several days and then it was time to add ghostly touches – this year we had two skeletons, the usual lights, spiders, spider webs and a new touch with some window cutouts.
We made the annual pilgrimage to Denver and stayed at the Brown Palace. We packed a lot into the weekend with a visit to the Boulder house, a trip up to Estes Park, going to a concert to check out a great band for Kate’s wedding and enjoyed the “Monster Brunch” at the Brown Palace with Kaitlin and Adam, and finally caught up with friends before flying home.
On Halloween we hosted the dock party and as always when we get together, we had a great time.
In addition to Jimmy’s brother “Johnny”, we had a visit from the zombie couple and a couple of cowpersons as well as neighbors just back from south of the border.
