In October 2005 we had our second Autumn Party. We focused a little bit more on the pumpkin carving this time. Everyone brought their own pumpkins and planned ahead what they would carve. We kept the food similar to the first year and my daughter hired a photographer to come take family pictures. Our time together, that chilly autumn afternoon will forever be etched in our minds, as just 2 months later we would unexpectedly loose our precious mother.
2006 was a year full of grief for our family. We didn’t have any family gatherings in homes, we met at restaurants instead. But in 2007 we gradually started back some of our times together. And this year we’ve been “full speed ahead”, because we all know, that’s what Momma would want us to do. Tomorrow, I’ll post some Pumpkin Carving pics from 2007. You will not believe how much our carving improved from this party to that one!!!
