Today we were getting out our Halloween decorations and starting to make the house look festive for this first holiday of the season.
Sam looked up at me as we dragged the Halloween box out of the garage, with shining eyes, saying "I love Halloween, I just love it!"
It is that sweetness and simple joy of childhood that I so treasure as a parent. I remember how excited I was as a kid when fall would roll around and we would finally be allowed to hang up our Halloween decorations. I love sharing and experiencing that excitement and magic with my own boys- that is what I now love about the holidays!
