I missed Halloween. I am mostly over it, but still harbor a little guilt and sadness over missing the Trick or Treating. I helped the boys get their costumes and we did a dress rehearsal Saturday, so I could see them together and take a couple of pictures.
I left cider and cake donuts with their dad for post trick or treating (a family tradition).

The car picked me up for the airport before 5:00 am Sunday morning and I was up for a collective 32 hours before falling in to bed the following night in Madrid.
Let's just say this was a far cry from last Halloween.
One thing about being away is that it reminds you how much you matter in the lives of your loved ones.
