Happy Halloween .... 2017

A couple days before Halloween,
part of our family had a 
by the pool.

The newest member of the family,
Little HUDSON....

I swear he gets cuter every time I see him.

I bet this time next year, he will be running all around the place.

Cate LUVS little cousin, HUDSON...

The two older great-grandboys,
GRAHAM (Hudson's big brother)
and cousin,
PATRICK (Cate's little bro)

 "Don't you fall in that water, is COLD.."

Everyone had a fun Sunday,
carving and painting and just enjoying the family.
This is us, all dressed up last HALLOWEEN...
I sure miss my handsome CEREAL KILLER.

Halloween or any other time will never be the same.

Stay safe and have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN


  1. BJ, all of your firsts are going to be hard, I'm sure. I'm so glad you have that strong family around you.

  2. Falling into a cold pool would certainly be a different type of freighting on Halloween.

  3. Sure looks like a fun family gathering! How many pumpkins did they end up carving and how did they turn out?

  4. What a fun time! I know you enjoy all of these family members, big and small:) Love that last picture, memories... Have a blessed day dear B.J. HUGS!

  5. Dear bj, how lovely that your family enjoy such togetherness - fun I'm sure, but also a time when you can all still continue to share the great love you all have, and will always have, for dear Mr. Sweet even though he is not with you. I love all the little ones having fun outdoors in the autumn sunshine.
    Hugs - thinking of you. Are you expecting Trick or Treaters tonight?

  9. Oh my goodness I love last years Halloween pic of you two,the cereal killer is fantastic. Seems odd to me (midwest girl) seeing pumpkin carving in hot weather but it looks like so much fun.

  10. Oh, such a wonderful time.This is our first Halloween without Mom. I love your picture from a year ago! Is it just me, or does Hudson look a lot like dear Mr.Sweet?

  11. Aww, you've got some sweet little pumpkins there. What a fun family get together and I'm sure the little ones had a blast. Love the fun pic of you and Mr. Sweet...........

  12. BJ, What a bunch of cute little ones. You are right those new babies change pretty fast. I know you miss your Mr. Sweet. I miss seeing him in your posts....I miss you too. :( Every holiday will have special memories of your great love for your husband. He knew you love him. :) Blessings to you honey, xoxo, Susie
