4. Grateful for Holidays

Halloween isn't my favorite holiday, but if you check my blood sugar these last few days you won't be able to tell.  Darn candy... Pretty sure it's mocking me on a regular basis.  But no matter what, the girls love it, so I'm very grateful for these chances to create traditions.
Addi helped me decorate the front of the house.  After we put up the caution tape I drew her outline.  I think she was right when she said it "looks like a gingerbread man with a broken leg."  She added the "I am Sam" and headstone.
The girls picked their own costumes this year - Sam was Belle, and Addi was Batgirl.  This was the hardest year yet for picking - I swear, every costume that would fit Addi looked like she was working in the club on a pole.  I am already shuddering at the thought of shopping next year. That's PopPop with the girls - he dresses as Santa Claus all winter long.
While Jay took Addi around the neighborhood, I stayed home to man the door. In true Sam tradition, she didn't trick or treat at a single house.  Instead, she helped me hand out candy.
