Potwin Halloween

A week before Halloween, our neighbor Tom decided to replace all of his landscape lights with ORANGE glow light bulbs.  Holy Moly ... night time around here has been really ORANGE.
Tommy donned some shades to protect himself.

The neighborhood party was kid-happy.  There were tons of kids ...
playing fun games like donut-dangle.

Halloween night was amazing.  Beautiful weather brought out record numbers of kids.  According to Tom (who counts by the candy bags) we had over 2,100 Trick or Treaters.   There were some really fun kids ...

and some fun grown-ups too.

Happy Halloween 2011.  Hope yours was Happy.

Today is Hope Elizabeth Crow's birthday!  
6 pounds, 1 once ... not counting the cool hat.
Mother and daughter are doing fine.

Congratulations Andy, Donna and Anthony.

Surprise in Menlo Park

Displaying excellent organizational skills, Jake was able to orchestrate a fun and colorful surprise Birthday Party for Samantha.   With Mayumi as an accomplice, the party was a great success.  Below is the aftermath of "SURPRISE" after Samantha walked into her apartment.
There were balloons ....
lots of fun party-goers ...

pizza, Choco-Tacos, a beautiful dessert by Ryo ...
and lots of smiles.

The next day Jake gave us the Zillabyte presentation ...
and we got to see where Samantha hangs.
Throw in some fun times with Beth, a yummy milk shake from the Palo Alto Creamery and my own Zillabyte t-shirt

and you've got a Zilla-teriffic 48 hours.
Thanks, Jake for including us in all the fun.  
Happy (early) Birthday Samantha.
