Up until last December, we lived in a large neighborhood. As most of you know, we now live on a small farm in the country. So, the question was-what do we do about Halloween? My dad’s church, Graefenburg Christian Church, was having a “Trunk or Treat,” so we decided this would be perfect. It gave the kids a chance to dress up (even Robert…who is almost 16) and get a little candy while visiting Papaw in the process. However, our little ones were a bit confused about this process….as they were not going up sidewalks in
West Albuquerque up to the doors of our many neighbors. J
I have to say that I don’t like it when Halloween falls during the week. That means that I don’t get to dress the kids up and I leave it all to Tammy. I gave her some specific instructions in regard to Kennedy’s make-up (she was a snow princess); and she followed this pretty well. However, all of the others kids had black make-up around their eyes, on their noses, etc. I asked Tammy what this was and she said “it was that black pen in your make-up thing.” Ummm….hellooooo…that is my Organic Wear (not cheap!!) liquid eyeliner!! I had to bite my tongue as we were in the church parking lot. Oh well.
We have had quite an eventful weekend. We took Sophie and Kennedy to their first concert; Taylor Swift. Kennedy had a ball; but Sophie said that she is done with concerts…Kennedy and I will be going to the next concert alone J
Well, today marks the 13th anniversary of my girl and me. We were talking tonight about how it doesn’t seem that like it has been that long. We have been through so much together and our relationship just continues to grow. In my humble opinion, a strong relationship contains BOTH chemistry and compatibility and we have a tremendous amount of both. We are very lucky…I think that many people spend a lifetime trying to find the kind of love that we share.
