This year, we had a luxuary of having both Ken-chan and Ko-chan here at our house for Thanksgiving. In addition to that, we invited our friends over for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner which every year my husband cooks using his family receipe :)

Anniversary - Nov 14, 2008

Anniversay started with a gorgeous meal at Providence restaurant followed by a long-wished purchase of "wii" and finalized with a surprising delivery of beautiful flowers form my hubby. Thanks for being a great husband, and most of all, my best friend!

Madagascar 2! - Nov 09, 2008

Went to The Grove and saw Madagascar 2. Kid's movie? No, adults can enjoy it very much. Alex and his buddies are now on their way home to NY city but end up being in Africa, which apparently was Alex's real home. He reencounters with his dad and mom and starts learning the societal harshness and politics. But, he sticks with his own belief and shtick and finally becomes a part of the society. No no, the story was not explicitly serious like that. It was full of witty humour and laughs. Highly recommend the movie.

Before the movie, we had a luxury to enjoy cajun food at the farmer's market.

We had our all time favorites, which we haven't had a chance to eat for a while. They are Blacken Catfish Po'boy and Gumbo Yaya! Mmmm mmm GOOD!

Halloween trick-or-treat

We had our 2nd Halloween here on Hobart. The 1st one was rather shocking, as we underestimated the number of kids coming to trick-or-treat. We ended up making two additional trips to get more candy. This year, we wanted to be a bit more prepared. Instead of giving away three or four pieces of candy per kid, we were being conservative at the beginning and limited our offering to one or two pieces. Guess what? Around 8:30pm or so, kids stopped coming. Unlike last year, there were no 2nd or 3rd waves of kids. Why? Is it because of the ressession? We ended up haivng 200+ pieces of candy left over :( ... Sorry kids. We could have given you more candy...

But, there were some very cute costumes this year, too. Here are some of them.
