For Halloween, we had bought Lorelai a pig costume to wear and we were planning on just going to all the grandparents' houses and visiting, but last minute plans changed! Grammy (Matt's mom) decided to take a trip to Tennessee to see her mom, and Gigi (my mom) was going out to dinner and a movie that night. My friend Meghan's mom (who is like another mom to me) told me that Crossroads was having a Fall Festival and she would love it if we would stop by. We decided that that would be fun, and we would just walk around for a little bit because we knew that LL is still to young to do any of that stuff. It ended up being so warm on Halloween, so we also had to nix the costume because it was super thick. We did have a cute little Halloween onesie for her that I had gotten at Old Navy awhile back, so we decided to just let her be festive in that.
I was texting my sister about a week and a half before Halloween, and I jokingly said that I missed her and she should come for the weekend. She texted back and said that she actually had been thinking about it! It turns out that Gino was going to have to work all weekend, and she was thinking of driving here with Ben for a short visit. It all worked out and she ended up coming the weekend before Halloween. Matt and I had not seen been since he was less than a week old - he is almost three months now! Laura hadn't seen Lorelai since she was 6 months old and she has changed SO MUCH since then. I was so excited that they were coming! It was a short visit - she came late Friday night and left early Sunday morning, but it was better than nothing! We spent the day Saturday at my mom's house just playing with the babies, napping, and enjoying having almost all of our family together.
