Halloween memories.

The following picture's are from last year.
I'm very happy to have these Halloween memories with Carly.
But, I'm very sad that there will be no more
Halloween memories made with her.

Last year was the first Halloween that Carly really got "into" carving pumpkins.
Normally, she would have sat and watched her "Paul" while making
faces of disgust when he pulled all the goopy seeds!

Not last year though!
Last year, she got into it.
Big Time!!

In the above picture, I can still hear her "ugh" sounds
as she scooped out the inside of her pumpkin.
She was still a bit unsure of all the goop,
but she kept right on going.

The next day, we sat the freshly carved Jack-O-Lanterns out on the porch.

We usually did silly face Jack-O-Lantern's for Halloween.
Carly would always giggle after they were complete.

I so wish she would have sat down with those Jack-O-Lanterns,
but she would have NO part of it. She stood with me, in the
yard as I snapped the pictures.
I'm not complaining tho., because we have many
wonderful, Halloween memories.
