Boston Reception

Adam and I headed back to Boston this past weekend to celebrate with Mike and Beth for their Boston wedding reception. In the short weekend we were there, I got the chance to have dinner with Heather, John, and their beautiful girl Savannah. And, once Adam arrived on Saturday, we ate a delicious lunch at my aunt's house with my grandmother and other family. Although a short trip to Boston, it was fun seeing everyone again!

Random Fact from Adam: "The National Confectioners Association forecasts sales of Halloween candy to hit $2.26 billion. The National Retail Federation predicts $1.77 billion. Other Halloween-related numbers:
* 64.5% of people plan to take part in Halloween activities this year. (I wonder if that counts people of faith who have "Fall Festivals" or similar gatherings.)
* The average amount spent on candy per person is $21.33. For costumes, decorations and cards per person: $45.21. (Cards? I know Hallmark sells them, but have you ever given or received a Halloween card? Did it same something corny like, "Have a spooktacular Halloween"?)"
