I hope that everyone had a good turkey day. We had a lot of fun here. I helped Mom make bread and helped a little with everything else. I also enjoyed the very traditional holiday treat of cranberry sauce on crackers. Eat it without your hands if you're cool!
Anyway, Uncle Todd brought the very yummy cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes and Mommy made other good stuff including brie wrapped in brioche (that's rich cheese wrapped in rich bread and baked). I took a late nap and was cranky at the beginning of dinner but I managed to rally and put on a show for Uncle Todd. It's always fun when an audience, um, I mean family comes over.
I also enjoyed wearing the traditional holiday garb - a bathing suit. And reading traditional holiday materials - Yoga Journal. Sorry you couldn't make it - we still have leftover stuffing.

Grandma and Grandpa came to visit! I was really excited to see them but I was also really excited because Mamma said we could have cupcakes when they came. In fact, I was so excited that the first thing that I said when I saw them was "Cupcakes!" So much for Grandpa's surprise cupcakes. I have been paying close attention and I don't think we'll get cupcakes again until Daddy's birthday and that's after Thanksgiving and Christmas! That's a long time.
I had a great time visiting with them. We went to Uncle Todd's house for dinner and I got to play with his camping mat and his foam roller and I got to ride Rosie's horse swing (Rosie is Uncle Todd's neighbor), we also went to OMSI and Brooklyn Park playground and we played a lot at our house. I was so busy dancing for them and entertaining them that sometimes I asked Mommy if they could go home...then I would take a long nap. Now I miss them, of course. Come back soon!

I had all sorts of ideas of what I should be for Halloween. I wanted to be a horse, a cat, a bunny, a unicorn and - finally - a fairy. Mommy kind of had options for unicorn and bunny and could have thrown together a last minute cat costume but I think I was making her crazy! She says if I decide ahead of time and don't change my mind, should could make a really nice costume but I like to imagine myself as all sorts of different things! I also got Mommy to dress up a little bit like a fairy and I imagined myself a fairy dog - with Scout, imaginary costumes are usually safest! Daddy dressed up as a fairy dog handler, I guess. He just put on his Carhart jacket and he was ready to go.
We were planning to go to Astoria last weekend to watch a big pink bunny (Daddy) race his bike and throw candy to the crowd but Mommy and I got sick. Thankfully, we were feeling a bit better by Halloween and we got to go trick-or-treating at Maggie's and Rita's and Denise's. Oh, we also went down to Camille's house too! She's just about my age. She wasn't dressed up for trick-or-treat yet. She was going to be scary ladybug - Mommy's sorry we missed it.
Anyway, Happy Halloween! Watch out for flying fairy wands!
