Brian and I have been full of excitement waiting for the arrival of our first Halloween with Lucy. We were fortunate to have Brian's sister, Bridget, in town to commemorate the occasion. Lucy was our little "angel," and even though it was a bit cold, she had a blast! By about the tenth house (my best guess) she had the whole "trick or treat" thing down. She got so excited going up each driveway in her wagon and would fervently yell "chocolate" in anticipating of her next treat. Who knew it would be this fun!
As a final note, we got our tree! For those who read my blog post from September 28th, you know that I won this tree at a fund-raiser for a local girl just adopted from China. Originally, I had won a maple tree. But when the generous donator from C & M Landscaping (also the little girl's uncle) found out about the connection between our families, he suggested planting a Cherry Blossom tree instead. This line of tree is abundant in Asian countries like China and Japan. This past weekend we all graciously watched as they planted this beautiful new addition in our backyard.
