Halloween Family

Natalie's family arrived on time and we had an hour together before they headed out to trick-or-treat. They were caught in a bit of rain but, with umbrellas, that didn't deter them. It was so marvelous to spend time with the kids and all their energy. The food was a hit, Oliver ate five of the hot dogs and we even got some fruit into him. Winnie had a private gymnastic lesson before they arrived so she was tired by the end of the day.

Approximately 40 kids came to our door and, at one point while we were talking with their parents, I realized that Winnie and Oliver had heard the knock on the door and was handing out candy. It was fun to watch the interactions between little kids to little kids.

Natalie's husband's new job is right on the cusp of new technology in the Virtual Reality world. So very relevant. He is loving every moment. Natalie finally has help teaching her music program. She is finding it so refreshing to have another teacher pulling half the load. She can breathe this year.

It was also so sweet when "Dad" arrived at the door from work, both kids went running to him. Natalie stood and waited. After he greeted the kids, he walked to her and gave her a huge hug and kiss. It was so great to see. This is a loving, working family.

As they were climbing into their cars to head home filled with candy and Halloween happiness, Winnie yelled out to me standing on the front porch, "Love you!!!" My heart just filled up. I am one lucky person.
