|Imagine instead one happy energetic child, two tired-as-can-be children, and two extra sad in tears children...|
Also, I so want to remember this sweetness. Owen and Ellie and Porter spent hours on Sunday making "Happy Halloween" letters for Owen to deliver. And it was just so fun. He'd hand them the envelope and they'd thank him with a confused look, "It's for me?" And then recognize "Oh! You're the postman and you're delivering the mail!" And so many people were just so delighted with it - it was so sweet to watch. And Owen was so quietly happy about sharing this little bit of happiness - it was all just the highlight of the night for me.
Oh! And I had a costume this year for the first time since Landon was a toddler. I I just wore black pants & shirt with a bunch of silver star stickers and a round white sticker for the moon - the night sky :) (It wasn't much, but Ellie was thrilled to see me show up to her class in costume!)
