As October fades into November, I am amazed at the speed with which time is travelling! With unseasonally warm weather, my body and mind are still lost in the sunshiny moments of summer, however, reality will tell me that time is marching on.
Happy Halloween to all who mark this date with one form of celebration or another. When I arrived to pick up Emily from school, I could immediately see in her eyes that something was not right. She slinked over to me, and though she assured me she was fine...a thermometer would tell a different tale! With a 102' fever and general malaise, Emily would sit this one out. She and I stayed home and handed out candy, which she informs me was "just as fun".
Miss Hannah was a bit of a social butterfly soaking in her first Halloween with joy and a bit of an attitude:) Our littlest ladybug strutted herself around in her costume, patting her chest and telling anyone who would listen, "Bug". She bounced her antennas and shook her little body so that her wings would sway on her back. She visited relatives and took along Emily's treat bag, arriving home with plenty for her sister. Once inside, she proudly rifled through her "Boo bag" and then proclaimed,"MORE!"
We dreamed of the day when two little girls would share the glory of holidays and festivities and our dream has come true. Thanks to both our little ladybugs for being great sports and amazing little people, our lives are so completely blessed with you brightening everyday.
