It's here! The spookiest time of the year. I don't know about you, but we've enjoyed ourselves at several community Halloween events. We've gone 'Trunk or Treating' twice, visited the city's 'Halloween in the Park' and tomorrow night will end up at the 'Fall Festival' at our church. I can say I've gotten my money's worth on that $14.99 costume!

I hope you have a spook-tacular evening and enjoy your little goblins!

Little men and women

I noticed our kids this week are suddenly grown ups trapped in a little man and a little woman's body. Lia is 4 going on 20 and Nathan isn't even 2 yet and already has an attitude. Lia has her expectations of how things should be and will fight for what she believes in...even if it's slightly distorted in her 4 year old mind.

Sunday we visited a different church and spent time with some friends. We told Lia we were going somewhere different and her first reaction was.."Will my sparkle sweater and jeans be okay or will I need to wear a dress?" She's FOUR, so why does it matter to her what she is wearing?? It just shows how our society is already affecting her innocence. I try my best to protect her, but that's all I can do. Thankfully her next thought was that she would make new friends. I reminded her that if they were going to be her friends that it really wouldn't matter to them what she was wearing. She smiled and agreed.
