Autumn Adventures

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.

What a sweet post Heather! It sounds like (although maybe not as planned) a great evening and a lot of fun for all of you! I was laughing at your description of Miss Hannah, I wish I could have seen her!
Emily seems to have one amazing little heart and such a trooper, I hope she's feeling better. :)
Both of your little ladybugs are such blessings.

You are indeed blessed with both of your girls! I'm already dreaming of the same thing even though we have a very long wait!
Hannah makes an adorable ladybug!
Glad to hear she got Emily some candy too. :) Hope she feels better real soon!

I hope Emily feels better! It looks like you had a lovely Halloween. Hannah makes an adorable ladybug. Your mosaic looks great!

I am so sorry sweet Em was/is sick. Please hug and kiss her from us...I am glad Hannah stepped up to the plate to hunt and gather for the two of them. She is a beautiful bug and her antics CRACK me up. I love your mosaic.

Here's to many answered prayers and many holidays these sweet girls will spend together.

Hope we can talk again soon.

Love you,

So sorry to hear that Cinderella wasn't feeling well. I hope she's feeling better today. Sounds like she was a great sport about it all, though. I am just laughing at the visual picture of Miss Hannah strutting around! What a spunky little girl she is.

I am so sorry your princess did not feel well. I am glad she enjoyed giving the candy out. An absolute adorable little bug there!
We too are having nice weather and I am thankful. Christmas is sneaking up though isn't it?

I hope that your little Emily is better soon! Eli has been battling a cold too and I know so many others who are coming down with it.
Thank you for your comment tonight. Your daugters are just beautiful!

Oh I Love this post Heather! I am sorry that sweet Emily was sick, but she is such a trooper to make it a fun night anyway. And Hannah, what a sweet little ladybug to make sure she filled up her sister's bag too. You truly are blessed with two very special and sweet little girls!

Dear Heather,

Thank you for your thoughtful comment on my blog. Your daughters are both breathtaking and your blog so warm and welcoming.

Would you mind telling me who is singing that version of Amazing Grace ... it's beautiful. I'm going to be creating a video for my mom and dad and would love to use that song.


Mommy Spice said...

I love the way you write. I'm so sorry Emily was feeling bad, but even our spicy girl enjoyed handing out candy almost more than trick or treating.

Your two little ladybugs are beautiful!!

Christy said...

I hope she is feeling better. So many kids right now have the flu and are sick. Your poor baby. Sweet post!

Christy :)

I just wanted to thank you for sending the information on the Amazing Grace song - I just purchased it from i-tunes. It really is a beautiful version!
