...these are days...

so yesterday was halloween. the weather cooperated and it ended up being crisp and cool (relatively speaking). we decided that we would church hop for "trunk or treat." (trunk or treat is when cars line up in a parking lot and open their trunks for kids to trick or treat out of-- this is new to us!) anna katherine has nightmares on occasion, so we figured that we would be safe from scary stuff in church parking lots. i was actually very surprised to see several cars with lit up skulls and the like. (geez, you can't avoid it.) we left our church taking away two HUGE pumpkin bags full of candy, and planned to head to a friend's church for another trunk party but our plans were altered when we found out they ran out of candy.
we headed home, and decided to take the girls for a jaunt around the block. We avoided the scary homes for all of our sakes, and enjoyed walking together as a family. it was great to run into neighborhood friends out and about, and we loved watching our girls run with excitement to each home. as natalie merchant sings so well--
"These are days you’ll remember
Never before and never since, I promise
Will the whole world be warm as this
And as you feel it,
You’ll know it’s true
That you are blessed and lucky
It’s true that you
Are touched by something
That will grow and bloom in you"

I love that you combined Halloween and Natalie Merchant. Genius. :)

Ask Steve when he is going to do that profound blog he promised me.
