We had a great Halloween. Sophie was a Vampire. Josh was a Rubix Cube. Ben was a Mummy. David was a Tiger and Shayne was on her first date! It was the scariest Halloween ever! She was gone to Sadie's with a group of 10 people and they had a great time. But, am I really that old?
The kids got a ton of candy and a lot of the dentists here have a candy buy back where they will give you $1 for ever pound of candy you bring in. So we decided to do that and we found a dentist that ships all of the candy to those serving over seas in the military. Well, Josh LOVES the military. Truly LOVES it. Ever since he was 7 years old and I couldn't be happier. He is just like his Father and always wants to help everyone and I think he sees it as a way to help everyone everywhere all at the same time. So, when he heard that the candy is being sent to them he took every piece except one and put it in bag and said, "here is my bag that I want to go to the military because they never get anything and I don't need it." I wanted to cry. What an incredible kid! He's right of course. He doesn't need it. None of us do. Especially us adults who no longer have the metabolism of a 10 year old.
What a great way to start of the Thanksgiving holiday. Being grateful for all we have and looking out for those less fortunate.
