So check out this kid. Our Kaitlyn. In 2008.
Oh how I love her.
And the fact that she dressed up as a gorilla for Halloween two years ago.
And carried an old Easter basket because we didn't have another plastic pumpkin bucket for her.
It was soooooo heavy, but she INSISTED on carrying it all by herself.
It was our first Denver Halloween, and we loved trick-or-treating in our neighborhood with the sound of crunching leaves under our feet.
Even without the festive porch decorations, the old brick bungalows and tall Victorian homes on our street set the perfect tone.
So did watching It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown in our pjs, eating candy.
I love seeing life through the eyes of my kids, and helping them make memories and start traditions that will last a lifetime.
*I'm linking up with SITS these next few days for some Halloween-themed posts. So fun!*
