4: Halloween | For both you and your sister, this evening of dress up and candy was something new. Neither of you like scary things so you both chose to be what you are to your daddy, sweet princesses.
5: Waldorf, Maryland and Washington DC | Mommy moved a lot growing up, but the one place that still feels like my growing up home is Waldorf, Maryland outside of Washington, DC. We all went to visit when we came back to America because the church mommy went to when I was in the youth group wanted to hear how we were serving our Heavenly Father in Chad. We had a great time with friends and seeing our Nation's capital, but what mommy remembers most is to treasure the time and friends God will give you throughout your life. Continue to pray for them and as they grow that they will always walk with the Lord.
