Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Creative Pumpkins!

Each year Ashlyn's school does a pumpkin decorating contest. I only had time to take pictures of a few this year, but I was sure impressed by how clever people are! I thought you might like to see some of the creations!

A "mummy" pumpkin painted black...

Ugh...too much fun on Halloween night!

Doesn't this "sesame seed bun" look tastey?

What a fancy "lady!"

Turtle clever!

Since we were new last year and weren't sure what to expect, we didn't participate. This looks so fun though, that we definitely want to take part next year. I think we need to just start planning now!

Those are so GREAT! How do people become that creative?

I wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog about my dad. You are such a gracious, classy person. I know yesterday had to have been hard for you and it really impressed me that you commented on my Dad's birthday. I did give him an extra hug...thanks for reminding me not to take him for granted!
