Oh my gosh, I can’t believe the HOLIDAYS are upon us!  October and Halloween, flew by, like a witch going after a dead man’s toe.  Aden was the cutest Count Draculain the world!  I would totally have loved to have seen him bite someone’s neck, but that’s a bit morbid huh?  He was so totally ADORABLE! 

We took him trick-or-treating in my mom’s neighborhood as it is a small area and the houses are close together.   We pushed him in his little car from house to house.  We would park the car at the curb and walk to the front door of the house.  At the first house he didn’t know what to do, but luckily there was a little Snow White there to show him how.  He started grabbing handfuls of candy and then went back for more!  Smart Boy!  I had to explain that you don’t grab handfuls of candy like that.  The conversation went like this, “No, No, No, No, No.” 

By the third house Aden figured out that he needed to grab the candy and run!  He watched those other kids do it!  He really enjoyed his jaunt to each house and would point to the houses with lights on.  Smart Kid.  The whole evening was bittersweet for me though because I knew that he would never be this little and adobable again.  Big and adorable, but never this little and adorable EVER AGAIN.  Makes me want to cry.

On the other hand, we are really looking to the holidays.  Thanksgiving and Christmas!  We already have too many toys, so we decided a few more would help.  Aden can eat solid food this year!  I know he is going to love the turkey and stuffing.  I just don’t know how to get it all done!  Make magic happen and stay sane and you know, work.
