Thankful Thursday: October 31, 2013

The last day of October
The much anticipated hallows eve
{A busy and high energy day
at homes of children far & wide}

Our pumpkin was moldy
but our joy was full 
as we followed our shadows
in weather quite cool

We made our rounds with
 a redheaded rocket, 
a green-eyed dinosaur, 
and a tiara-wearing dancer.

Then we reviewed our spoils and talked about what an awesome month we've enjoyed. Our jackets and gloves came out of hiding, our fireplace warmed our toes, and our adventures were many.

And I am thankful!
