Oct 2006 – Ariel and her sailor boyfriend arrived at the annual Ray’s All Hallow's Eve party, and received generous notice from the party-attending toddlers. They’d stop in their tracks, rapidly pull at their parent’s sleeve, and anxiously yet quietly alert them to the fact that a sea princess had entered the room. The aquatic celebrities did their best to graciously attend to their attentions. Andrew wasn’t quite as popular with the preschool Disney crowd, but he did conquer the advanced side of the rented climbing wall. Unfortunately, Reachel's fins did not accommodate such activities.

Reachel spent the actual October Eve in Utah, desparately missing Andrew's vegetarian chili and Arizona's spanish speaking trick-or-treaters. To assuage her longings, she snuggled up with the lionly little Baby Mason.
