1. Getting to put my kids in matching outfits for the first time! This struck me as something so incredibly fun and inherently girly -- I can't wait to do it again at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used to hate it when my mom put me & my sister in matching clothes, but I totally get it now.

4. Seeing the delight on my big girl's eyes as she ran from door to door to trick-or-treat for the first real time this year. Lucy's still saying, "I go trick-or-treat. Get candy in pumpkin!" Here she is with her friend Cooper (aka Buzz Lightyear), inspecting their loot.
5. Experiencing the pure joy of watching your good friend's child become friends with your own. There's simply nothing like it, and we're so fortunate to have the James family in our lives.
