Me and my BFF Amanda. We have an annual tradition of having our picture taken together every Halloween.
We had a great Halloween today! Sissy was pretty sick this morning so papa brought Asa over to my house to let sissy try to rest and sleep before she came over to my house. We had a great time, had a fabulous dinner, carved pumpkins and took the kiddos trick or treating around the neighborhood. It was the best Halloween we've ever had.
I just need to write this really quick. I was watching something I had DVR'd and when that was over a "Friends" episode was on. It was the one where Chandler and Monica get picked by a birth mom for their baby. Chandlers speech where he says "my wife is loving and caring. She's a mom, without a baby." I vividly remember watching that very episode when it was first on and sobbing. I wanted so desperately to be a mom and I felt like I WAS a mom.... without a baby. And now? Now I have a beautiful daughter and an amazing boy who I claim. I am so blessed!
I hope you all had a great Halloween too! Next up? Taking down all the Halloween decor and starting up with the Christmas decorations. Yes, I skip Thanksgiving decorations because, well, there just isn't really anything to decorate with. I have posted many, many times of my distaste for Thanksgiving. I have a post coming up about that along with a surprise. Goodbye Halloween, hello Christmas!!!!
