Halloween Day was a gorgeous Sunday. Mom dressed me in orange, plopped some ears on my head and I pretended to be a kitty cat, as I played with an actual kitty cat. Then dad and I celebrated in true kiwi spirit with a bbq. We decided as a family to skip trick-or-treating, something about a dentist bill was mentioned????
The kiwi costume MiMi made last year was just too good to let go to waste, so mom took it out of storage and it put to good Halloween use. Luckily the weather was heaps better than last years festivities and folks were out in full force. Little Kiwi strikes a pose.

Our pal Pat came to visit and see some leaves this Sunday. He is so much fun, feels like one of us kids. I call him Uncle Pat, he's like family.

On our way back down from Graveyard Fields, mom and I stopped in at the Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the new trail linking downtown Brevard with Pisgah National Forest. I met up with my friend Nora and we took to breaking in the new trail. As you can see, it was a lot less windy and much warmer than it had been up on the parkway.
Friday morning mommy and I loaded up and took off for the Graveyard Fields on the Blue Ridge Parkway to join the leaf looking crowds. Man, was it windy! I thought I was going to blow off the ridge, but we survived and had a lovely morning amongst some gorgeous autum colors. Mom's favorite color combo is the orangey/reddish leaves against a bright, blue, clear carolina sky.

PopPop had been planning a big surprise party for Mimi for months and this weekend he pulled it off. People came in from everywhere, Florida, Colorado, TN, NC and SC. Mimi will turn 60 on Monday, so the surprise was even more suprising, we got her early.
