I wanted to add a few Halloween pictures here :) The kids were just WAY too cute! Anna (Aurora) was wearing the tiara I wore at my wedding. I was a little nervous about that, but I made sure to pin it in really well. Daniel was a super cute Woody! He wasn't too keen on keeping the hat on, but at two years old that's understandable. He was very leery of all of the scary decorations and costumes and wound up crying to be held a few times while trick-or-treating. The whole holiday seems to freak him out. Every time we walked through the Halloween section at Target he would cry and hide his face. He's so sensitive.
My passport came in the mail yesterday! The picture cracks me up because I look so smug ;) The guy was taking the pictures at a weird angle, so it looks like I'm half smiling while looking down on everyone. Will said that my passport picture was the best out of all four of ours in spite of the smug look ;) None of our passport pictures are good. Even the kids, who never take a bad picture! It's still bizarre to me that our kids have passports. I didn't get my first passport until 15 or 16 when I went to China. I love the fact that our children are going to be little world travelers. I just hope they love traveling and Europe as much as Will and me. To be honest, sometimes I worry that they'll grow to resent us because of all of the moving we'll probably do in their lifetime and having to be so far from extended family. This is exactly the life that Will and I want, but would they choose it if they had the option? I guess only time will tell.
We'll be in Germany this time next month. That's still pretty surreal. Our lives have changed so much since we got married five and a half years ago. I often feel overwhelmed to have been blessed so much. God is SO good to us. We're still working on all of the final details, but most things have been scheduled :)
