Since I did not have to go home to let The Tide out, I worked until 5:30, ran by Target to pick up my prescriptions for my sinus issues and then went to the restaurant. I had planned to also pick up a scary mask for Little Mickey since he loves those, but Target had none. All the Halloween stuff was on clearance of course, but there were no scary masks - weird. I did manage to buy The Tide a witch costume for $3 - talk about a bargain.
Oddly enough it seems we all arrived at the restaurant at the same time. Jan was walking in as I pulled into the parking lot and then Jackie walked in right before I did. Come to think of it they probably rode together, but I don't know. We got settled into our spots at the table after greeting Little Mickey of course. This restaurant has a buffet which is what we all got. Well, everyone but Troy who ate chips and cheese dip - a kid after my own heart. The food, as mentioned, was good, and I was stuffed when all was said and done. I will also say that I thoroughly enjoyed the salsa at this place - it was very good.
Little Mickey got an Alabama shirt and some money as gifts and he was thrilled with all of them. Aunt Nina had gotten Little Mickey a cookie cake and we had that for dessert. It was also quite yummy. I, of course, was stuffed by the time the soiree was over.
As is always the case, it was such a fun night with people that I love dearly. We laughed and talked and laughed some more which always makes for a wonderful time. I look forward to doing it again next year.

I think my face looks chunky, but what can you do?
