Random Thoughts & What I Wore

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed looking at everyone's Halloween costumes & such. 
We didn't dress up this year. Maybe next year. :)

 I had fun handing out candy and some of the nicest kids, by nice I mean that they said, "trick-or-treat" and actually used "please" and "thank you," were not our neighborhood kids.

Their parents were in mini-vans and a car (which oddly had a spotlight shining off of it) trailing in the street. 

One little wide-eyed girl, with too-tight of a princess costume on,
looked up inside my home and simply said,

Their sweet words of how nice these houses are on this street, honestly humbled me. 
I've been driving through my neighborhood for the last 4 years.  Yes, I notice the manicured lawns and pristine gardens, as well as the lovely homes.
However, it's nice to be reminded of how blessed Joseph and I are to be where we are today.
As it is all too easy to get caught up in what we don't have.  {No, one day our baby nursery will not exceed 2,000 square feet like Jay-Z & Beyonce's.}
And that's ok!

I wanted to keep them all {Or at least give them the rest of our candy!} 
They we precious.
I wish I could thank them,
but instead I'll begin this November with giving thanks for one thing each day.

I'm grateful for our beautiful home, which keeps us warm and keeps me busy cleaning {all.day.long!}
