Halloween in Leslee's honor

Oct 31, 2009 - 7 comments

Halloween was always a very special time for Leslee and our family, they lived on an in town acrerage and she planned a party for all of us, her brothers family, her co workers and friends, hay rack rides, mazes with all kinds of "scary" surprises, costumes, pumpkin carving, bon fire and a hugh pot luck,  the little kids grew up looking forward to her parties, this year her daughters, hubby and I decided to carry on with the tradition, tjhrough the years  she and all of us have collected Halloween stuff, it takes a lot of work but it was worth every minute of it. We know she was there in spirit, doing her best to scare some of us, all of us felt her presence.  We decorated her gravesite also  in a Halloween theme,  It has been just a year this month but I still miss her so much.  I can imagine her gathering up all the "ghosts" in heaven and leading a party of mischievous  fun  earthwise,  that would be so like her. she started these parties when her 3 girls were small and carried on for over 20 years, some of my favorite photos are from those times.  marty
