Halloween Wonder

This evening after we finished dinner, the girls had gone to go play and I went to light the jack-o-lanterns.  It was a beautiful, peaceful evening and the sun was just beginning to set.  No sooner did I light the first candle when Emma showed up by my side.  Her little hand gently tugged at my shirt and she said:  "pretty, mama!"  A moment later, Grace appeared.  Their eyes grew wide with wonder as they watched me light the candle inside of each jack-o-lantern.  It was a fabulous moment.  One that I will indeed treasure forever. 

I so wish I had tried the sunset setting first!

On this holiday and always, may the magic and wonder of childhood be a blessing to all of us!
