Maddie was a flamingo
Luke was a gnome
Together they were
It was great fun watching Luke trick or teat for the first time all by himself
Walking down the street, running toward each house
Going up to each house to get a treat
Until we reached a scary house and he started to cry and refused to go on
I’m thankful for Halloween, a night when people open up their houses to smile and give kids free candy, a night when most everyone makes small talk while passing through groups of kids, a night when all that is terrible and scary is celebrated.
I’m thankful for my friend Kathey who hosted a seriously fun party and made the best chili I’ve ever had.
I’m thankful Luke and Maddie had such a good and fun night.
