We are planning to make / bring a big pot of vegetarian chilli, corn muffins
and maybe an apple pie. Yum! : )
It's fine with us to meet at our place and drive out to Pinckney.
Also fine with us to eat at our place afterward. But FYI Becca will
probably be there, although, depending on when we get back, she may be in
bed. She's most likely going to stay home and hand out candy (if she
doesn't go to her Mom's or something).
We'll bring our two carved pumpkins (once we get them carved). We do not
have a wagon. : (
Have a great day!
Carla : ) & Thom
