one more

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.

Very cute picture of Daniel with the pumpkins - he's an adorable duck! :)

Who are the pumpkin faces supposed to represent, esp. the top one?

He is so cute I can't hardly stand it!

I'd almost say that Daniel looks as much like a pumpkin as a duck! Great color coordination - the yellow in his costume looks like jack-o-lantern innards, and the orange feet look like pumpkin shell.

I love traditions like this, posing Daniel like your parents did when you were little. We didn't have many of these ideas in our family, so I think it's tres cool that you're doing it. The only thing we always did is get new dresses and hats on Easter, and I'm sure there was always a photo of that.
