|It's never a party unless someone's a cryin'...|
|Look, I'm all better...my mama gave me chocolate!|
|Cutest calf around!|
(Can I just say that my parents NEVER took us to a strange neighborhood...besides the safety issues, they raised me to believe it was bad form. And so today, I just can't do that...we trick or treat to a few of our neighbors' houses and call it a night. Not to mention, most of us have 1-acre plots...and that's a lot of walking for little ones in costumes.)
Anyway, I volunteered to return to the house, switch on the porch lights, light up the pumpkins and hand out candy with my sidekick, Moo Cow.
Be prepared for a series of cute photos... :)
Dig-a-doo (that's my silly nickname for Luke...he tries to talk and I swear he says "dig-a-doo") was all about my the candy basket...boyfriend knows the good stuff, too...he wasn't happy about the left-over pixie-stix...he wanted chocolate! :)
And so we've turned the calender to a new month...one of my favorites! My precious Benjamin is soon to turn FIVE...and of course Thanksgiving. Love it!
Little things I am thankful for...1. Benjamin sharing with me at bedtime that he never wants to grow-up...he wants to stay 4...forever! (Me, too, sweet son!)
2. Luke's new favorite past time...giving big, fat wet kisses at bedtime. He smooches up his mouth and makes a cute little noise to go with them.
3. Baking bread with my little ones...and waiting in anticipation for that first slice.
4. A Catholic-school community that takes seriously it's job in catechesis.
5. Neighbors calling to let me know that my garage door was still up (earlier this week) at 11 PM! YIKES!
