Hubby's b-day

It's a double-hatter: the 31st of October marks both Halloween and Hubby's birthday on the calendar. Double party, double fun... especially for the girls. This year they dressed up as a witch (Clara) and the devil (Ana). As usual they looked gorgeous. We've been having spectacular weather for this time of year and it was a very mild and clear night. There were lots of kids trick-or-treating without misbehaving.
It's a shame that our next-door neighbours believe that trick-or-treating is rude and never participate... even our Japanese front door neighbour joined in the fun and took a picture of every single kid that came calling.

On Saturday we drove to Stoke Bruerne but didn't stay long as it was really chilly. Stoke Bruerne is a village in Northamptonshire on the Grand Union Canal. It has been described as "the best example of a canal village in England".

Sunday was the last day of this year for enjoying a steam-engine powered ride on the Leighton Buzzard narrow-gauge railway (it's diesel engines from now on until next Summer). Good family fun.
