We are...a family!
Last night, as you may know, was Halloween. And as do most young families, we took our kids "trick or treating". Ben was a Dragon and Megan was Megan. We weren't planning to all go together so we didn't have a costume for her. But go together we did. I LOVED IT! All for of us traipsing about the neighborhood as a little family. Ben was so cute. He was excited and happy and loved every minute of it. We had to go see "Mrs. B" so we did our rounds in trout creek. Seems to be where most kids end up for Halloween.
As we walked around together, it felt to surreal. The four of us, our own little family complete with mom, dad, boy and girl. I could have sworn we were just "playing house". Okay, you be the daddy and I'll be the mommy and Ben you pretend to be the cute, happy little boy and Megan you be the baby girl. Got it? Okay, lets go!
I'm really excited to start our own family traditions together. Like trick or treating together, or carving pumpkins. I love being a family. I love my kids. When we arrived home the end of the night I was just so thankful, so blessed, my heart just full to bursting. PRAISE GOD from whom ALL blessings flow!
