Thankful for fun holidays

Day 4 of my thankfulness tour - I have to give a shout out to fun family holidays, especially Halloween.  It's so fun to watch Aubrey learn all about these holidays as she gets older, and it's hard to fathom how much she has grown in just one year.  Our Halloween was stretched out over a few days this year, starting with Wednesday with a party at the library.  Aubrey was pretty serious, taking it all in....

She quickly found she liked the computer.  Like mother, like daughter.....

She's even cuter from those wings...

We bought a slice of pizza for her for dinner.  I was starting to tear it into pieces when she just yanked it from my hand and started eating the whole piece herself.  Thatta girl....

We had severe storms on the actual holiday of Halloween so we were delayed until Friday the 1st.  Aubrey was pretty anxious to get out there.  "Come on, Daddy....clean up the grill and let's go!"

"Nope, I will NOT smile for the camera, no matter how hard you try!"

"Okay, maybe one smile....but only because Mommy is tickling me...."

We gave her a small fun-sized bag of M&Ms which she gobbled up and was disappointed they were gone so quickly...

So Mommy let her have a second bag....just this once!  I think she likes chocolate.

Holidays take on a whole new meaning having a little one, and I love experiencing the fun of it through her eyes.  So that is my thankful post for the day.  Hope you all had a wonderful (and ghoulish) Halloween!
