"I should not talk so much about myself if there were any body else whom I knew as well."
-Henry David Thoreau

It's officially November. It's still 80 degrees. I'm so emotionally conflicted over it. Is it summer? Is it fall? How do I mentally prepare myself for Thanksgiving (and Christmas?!) when I'm still wearing sandals? 
On Saturday we took Eleanor to the grandparents' houses to trick or treat a couple of days early. She's not old enough to really care, but it was cute anyway.  
We stayed home and handed out candy to trick or treaters last night. Since our neighborhood has filled up a lot in the last year, we had quite a few groups of kiddos come by and I think it will be fun for Eleanor next year. 
Guess who discovered that she can reach into the second row of kitchen drawers? 
Like father, like daughter. 
Just because she's cute and this outfit makes me want to squish her with hugs and smother her with kisses. 
The cashier at Walmart gave her a sticker and she carried it around for the next hour like it was the best gift she's every received.
