Ten Years of Halloween

Baby's First Halloween

I can’t believe this year is my daughter’s 10th Halloween. For Throwback Thursday, I decided to share a photo from each year…9 costumes (she wore the same costume in 2008 & 2009).

One year ago today, we were spending Spring Break at Disneyland. The picture that Facebook showed me was of my daughter eating Chinese on the wharf at California Adventure. As we were ordering, the cashier heard my daughter and […]

Of course when I checked the weather in Florida this morning, I see that they had a freeze warning. Still I’ll take feels like 30F over […]
