So…you might think you had the best costumes this Halloween, but I was handing out candy and the best ones I saw were my brothers and their trick or treating company.

In high school I had an awesome youth leader and now she is a mom…a mom with a blog. It is usually about parenting, but I sometimes pop over to read her latest post.
