I wish I could gift you all with a Halloween in my neighborhood. From Jon, next door, who rides his witch costume to work in the morning (scaring me half to death as I walked Mary to school) to my friends on the other side who host the entire neighborhood for soup and hot chocolate before trick-or treating– everyone makes an effort to create delight, laughter, a few scares. No one personifies this cheerful attitude better than Susannah, above, who wore one shoe backward on her new prosthetic leg. She just wants to make you smile.

(these are the easiest tutus in the world to make– we just tied strips of tulle around an elastic waistband)
