Happy Halloween 2014

Tonight, we enjoyed a great evening trick or treating with friends. Looking at Olivia, who went as Anna from Frozen, run up and down the sidewalks screaming trick or treat and a big thank you, we realize how blessed we are. Exactly three years ago, I was spending the night in a Ronald McDonald house in Philly after trick or treating with kind strangers.  The anticipation of my induction the next morning and all the questions we would be faced with loomed like a huge black cloud. It was truly the last night I took life for granted. We just passed the costume Delilah wore that night down to my niece, because even Olivia is just too big for it now. This is how we seem to spend the majority of our time these days. Olivia is growing and thriving and when asked about how she is... the answer is a simple... sassy as ever. We are so incredibly blessed to be able to enjoy the trick or treats and all of the sassy moments she throws our way. Tomorrow morning, we will celebrate her wonderful third birthday. I just hope that 10 to 15 years from now I can think back and enjoy each Halloween night as much as I have this one. It is so amazing what perspective time can provide.
