Kelsey decided she wanted to be a mummy. Her deciding factor was, bless her little heart, the fact that we already had white fabric strips cut out and rolled up from a few years ago. No, they are not wearing toilet paper!! She knew mom wouldn't have to make anything special this year if she decided to be a mummy. Let's just hope that her thoughtfulness for her mother continues through the teenage years!
Kendal didn't have a choice, but she didn't care. She got to look like sister and walk the sidewalks with sister. That was good enough for her. She wasn't into the candy too much either, probably because she didn't realize what it was! She was interested in the glowing pumpkins on the porches more than the candy. At a couple of houses she actually took the candy out that she was given and gave it back to the people in the doorway! If only I had the will power!!
Kendal has a new thing, when I get the camera out, she squishes up her little face, smiles, and tips her head back. It is so cute. Kelsey laughs at her when she does it. It was a super duper Halloween this year. Matt bought 2, 6 pound bags of candy. We ran out last year and had to start giving away Kelsey's treats and finally turn off the porch lights. This year that is not the case. We have a bunch of candy left over, I mean a BUNCH! I really am on a diet!
One more note, our friends the Arnold family learned 2 days ago that Andrew's liver cancer is terminal. It is spreading too quickly. They were hoping to do a liver transplant, but there is enough cancer in the veins surrounding the liver that it is too risky and really wouldn't make a difference if he did get a new liver. They are an amazing family and I sure enjoy them and their amazing example of goodness and faith. We hope the next few months are so full of good times for them. Please hold your children close and love them tonight, and continue to pray for Andrew. We saw him trick or treating tonight dressed as a doctor. He is a great kid.
