Hey Guys, So, I guess you probably are familiar with some of the main Halloween traditions in our house---Dad carves the pumpkin we get, and I dress up and dress up anybody in the family who doesn't mind too much and we usually go to a church Halloween party! This year we missed the church party, but we still celebrated in our Nelson fashion. Additionally, since we moved to Virginia, we have visited the pumpkin patches at the local Episcopal Churches here because 1. They are really neat and 2. We think they do a lot of good with the money they get from the sales. Anyway we have been going to the pumpkin patches yearly since Perris was a freshman at Wakefield High School in 2003. The one at Quaker and Seminary Road is where we went this year. I really look forward to this usually crisp weather, fall tradition!
I like the last one I took of Lynn with the Episcopal lady worker. Kinda' reminds me of Grandma Nelson and when I mentioned that to Lynn he said, "I know, I miss my Mommy!" He wasn't kidding either. Here he is a grown-up, having raised four kids, with an active school and military career to his credit, and he has a tender spot for his Mommy! I can only hope my own kids feel that way someday. Don't worry Lynn, you will see her soon---November 20th to be exact!
