Pretty as a Princess! It's another Halloween, Mama's favorite holiday. This year we had the added excitement of a school party. We had a parade through the halls, cupcakes, and goody bags. So much candy, where to start! Trick or Treating was not quite as much fun. Maddy and Karrie decided to go to a church Halloween party instead of trick or treating. I asked you what you'd prefer, "knocking on doors or the church party with Maddy?" It was hard for me to not try and bias you, because I really wanted to go trick or treating, but you chose that anyway. We made plans to go with the Rozelles, but just before we headed out of the door it started to rain. I grabbed some umbrellas, but with the wind, cold tempeatures, and rain, you only made it to 4 houses before you were asking to be taken home. Daddy and I pushed for a few more houses before finally giving in.

We dropped Daddy off and then headed off to the church to see if we could find Maddy and Karrie. The party was billed as "Treats from Trunks". Silly me, I didn't realize they meant trunks of cars, so the church party was a wash too (literally). You didn't seem to mind any of this, because you still had quite a bit of candy. I just hoping for better weather next year.

Today, your class went to the pumpkin patch. You got to go on a hayride, and pick out a little pumpkin souvenir. I think you were most excited about getting to ride the bus for the first time. You've also made some new friends at school, Samantha and Lily. Samantha is sitting next to you in the picture from the pumpkin patch. Actually, she's next to you in every picture from the pumpkin patch! I can tell she really wants to be your friend. I love getting my daily report from school; what kids you played with, what boys were bad, and what you had for snack.

Oh, how cute you are! Today you told me that you learned a new prayer at school. I was a bit confused at first because your preschool is not religiously affiliated. You got a very serious look on your face, clasp your hands together, and recited "I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America..." You recited almost the whole thing by memory. It was just the cutest thing. I guess I understand why you thought it was a prayer, afterall, they taught you the traditional version with "One nation under God" in it. You've been fascinated by prayer ever since Becky took you to Vacation Bible School for a day. You have a bunny that says a bedtime prayer, and you say it before bed quite often. That one goes like this, "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the lord my soul to keep. Angels watch me through the night, and keep me in their blessed sight. Amen."
