.:A beautiful Monarch Butterfly in the fields among the last of the Milkweeds :.
Our families recent celebrations on Halloween night was spectacular! Magical moments made themselves known and will be remembered and held close until next Autumn when we will continue to make new memories on this hallowed fall evening in the future.

The excitement was building as we waited for the golden sun to set and the shelter of the evening sky to wash overhead. Grand orange pumpkins carved with care, the warmth and glow from candlelit front porches, the comfort of crackling fires and the smell of woodsmoke greeted us at many doors along our trick or treat paths.

Welcoming faces greeted us at each door. Upon arrival a cheerful chorus of trick or treat was chanted from lovingly costumed children in joyful exchange for sugary treats.

The crisp sound of autumn leaves crunching underfoot, the sweet smell of fall in the air, costumed adults and smiling children filled our hearts with happiness as we walked together hand in hand. The bright moon was full overhead to our backs as we walked in celebration of Halloween night.

Each family came together for this once a year occasion. The memories of our togetherness as a family and a community visited us once again in the form of delightful dreams which filled our sleep--a sleep made ever more sound by the fresh night air and a special moonlit walk.
.: May your every day be filled with celebration and joy! :.
