I wish I had taken my camera in with us, Erick and Susan haven't aged one bit, but Nathanial and Augusta are all grown up! (And sweet as can be.) They played with Graham and introduced us to Boots, their friendly puppy that gave Graham lots of kisses. (in his open mouth)
We're just hoping Alecia bahaves herself on Thanksgiving this year :).

On Saturday night we helped Grandma T. at the annual Morris Church Harvest Supper. To be honest, Mel helped in the kitchen, Graham and I just wandered around and looked adorable. It's a tough job, but somebody had to do it.
On Sunday morning we got up super early and drove over to the farm to have breakfast with Aunt Amanda before she went home. She surprised Melissa with a belated birthday gift that Graham was all too eager to help open.
Not his size though, and they do nothing to help slim the baby belly he's got showing.

Halloween was a big hit for Graham. Our first stop in the neighborhood was across the street to see our friend Maria and her little chihuahua Coco, who was appropriately dressed as Dracula.
The trick-or-treat bag Melissa made for him worked great, and I scored a Kit-Kat and a bag of M&M's. (Uh... I mean HE did.)
After we hit a few more local houses, we went to Wesley's house for her annual Halloween party.
It was chock full of hyper-active kiddies amped up on sugar. You can imagine the chaos. Graham loved it.
This pic is from the night before when we helped carve pumpkins. Much like Korky, C.C. and Pepper, Wesley's cat Killer is another of Graham's favorite toys.
Afterwards we went to the Oneonta Halloween Parade. This is really one of my favorite things about living here. All the kids march down Main street in costumes. It was really fun to see.
Here's a few of us on the way back to the car though.

- Taking Graham into the voting booth and explaining to him that those words said "Barack Obama"
- Graham totally ignoring me, instead trying to play peek a boo from inside the voting booth curtain
- Hearing Barack Obama talk about his promises, including the one where he'll get his daughters a puppy
