"We Don't Make Mistakes, We Just Have Happy Accidents"
The family at Asilomar Beach, Pacific Grove, California
We'll we're back from a whirlwind trip! As I mentioned we left town last Thursday and headed down to California for a quick trip. We spent the night on Nob Hill in my favorite city (San Francisco) and then headed down to our hometown of Monterey where both sets of Andres's grandparents live. Since I knew we were not going to see my parents for the holidays, I came up with the idea of showing up on their doorstep as "trick-or- treaters" for Halloween. As far back as I can remember, my mom has always enjoyed seeing all of the little kids dressed up at her door and she would compliment each child on their costume. So I knew this would be the perfect "trick" to play on my parents. (Mark's parents, who visited us the previous week, were in on the secret).
When my mother opened the door and saw Andres, she started to remark that he was dressed in a similar costume to her grandson. She jumped back completely surprised when Mark and I showed our faces (and of course I didn't have my camera)! We had a great time and Andres loved spending time with his grandparents. So much so that he was whining the other night that he wanted to go to Grandma's house :)
And what was Andres this year? Well lets see his first Halloween he was "Kid Vicious", little punk rocker..

Then last year he was a WW2 Fighter pilot...

So you know he wasn't going to be a pumpkin or ghost..
Andres loves the man and knows many of the "Bob Ross-isms", so it just seemed natural for him to dress up like the T.V. painting guru. I hope one day Andres looks back and appreciates his parents sense of humor! I suspect that next year he'll want to pick his own costume, probably a super hero..I can't blame him :)
Next post will be my shop update announcement. It will still be next week but on a different day then previously mentioned. Also if you haven't signed up for the doll give away do so by this weekend.
