A picture from Halloween night, just before we set off for trick-or-treating. Next year, there will be two of them sitting there on the front step. How amazing. I remember when it was my sisters and me, clutching our plastic orange pumpkins (which I couldn't get Daniel to hold), posing for pictures in our Halloween costumes. It doesn't seem that long ago. The holidays take on a new perspective now that I am seeing them through new eyes: It's up to us now to establish traditions that our children will remember all their lives.
