As we experience our first holiday with Will, I am full of memories of the two Halloweens we were able to spend with Shane.
I think each year about what Shane would want to dress up as and what he would think of this holiday.
His first, he was only 3 months old, so he was a “go with the flow” kind of baby. By his second Halloween, he had pretty strong feelings about wearing hats on his head.
Even so, the holiday is a loved one in our house and every year I try to make it special….pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving, decorating the house (Ella has now expanded to include her bedroom in this, as this is HER favorite holiday) and of course spending the night trick or treating with them. They are so full of excitement.
So, we take the time to experience the moment and these times with our children. Seeing their smiles and hearing their laughter is much clearer to me since my precious baby boy, Shane taught me to really live.
Happy Halloween sweet Shane. You are dearly missed on this and every holiday.
