Luca's first Halloween

Time! Slow down! Luca is six months old and five days, and today is her first Halloween. Can you believe it??

This holiday, and the not-so-slow approaching of Thanksgiving and Christmas, have got me thinking about traditions, those little things that bind a family together, and that your baby will keep with them forevermore. Baking sugar cookies, listening for Santa's bells while snuggled in bed with your sisters, gathering around a family table, laying under the Christmas tree and stringing popcorn... those are my memories.

It all feels fresh this year, and I want to channel that energy into making it special for my girl. I'm not yet sure what that means, but am slowly figuring it out. What do you remember?

p.s. We will have a crawling baby by the time Santa visits. What!
