I've always loved Halloween. Seriously, what's not to love? Dress up as whatever you want and get a lot of candy. Find something wrong with that, I dare you.
There's the pumpkin carving.
(Yes, we rock at pumpkin carving.)
Roasting pumpkin seeds.
(examining the loot)
Coloring just about anything orange.
(rice crispy treats)
...and this little girl.
The BEST Halloween treat I've ever gotten in my life, is when Seesa was born 6 years ago on October 31st. I fell in love with her from the moment I touched her cheek right after she was born, and life has never been the same. I love that she always wants to be something "spooky" for Halloween, like a witch or black cat. I love that she adores animals - will watch any movie with animals in it, likes to pretend she is a dog (even though we find ourselves frequently telling her to quit barking) and I can't take her to the pet store for rabbit food without having to endure begging for whatever animals she finds there. I love that she took to Kindergarten like she'd waited for it all her life. I love that she takes care of her little sister. I love how she crawls in bed with me in the mornings and cuddles. I love her creativity and sense of humor. I love how her eyes smile. I love her love of life. And I love how she shows me, every day, a new reason be grateful for the blessing of her - my beautiful daughter.
