We Laughed

Usually when Lincoln starts throwing his snacks and food to Buddy, I say "all-gone" and take his food away. Joe's O's and Gorilla Munch are too expensive to be dog food.
However, today was a different day. We were all suffering from the time change, Buddy included. Early in the day, when I was making Lincoln's lunch he laid down on the tile floor and started sucking his thumb. If you know my boy, that's just not him...ever!
At about four o'clock both boys (Lincoln and Buddy) were roaming around the house wondering what to do.
Today I let this go and we laughed.


Lincoln's favorite part of Halloween was opening the door and handing out the candy. By the end of the night he got pretty good at it too. He would stand up on the couch, resting his chin on the window sill, and wait for trick-or-treaters to come to our house. Then he would hop down, open the door, and pass out the candy. Dominic and I just looked at each other and remarked how this would always be a wonderful memory. It's the simple things.
