I hold traditions very close to my heart. They bring comfort and a sense of continuity to our days. Something I am learning to embrace is the change in our traditions. Maybe evolution is a better word. We went to a new pumpkin patch this year. My children no longer wear matching Halloween shirts, and we don't sing Halloween songs in the truck on the way anymore. In fact, we didn't even bring our special Halloween CD. Two of my kids couldn't make it this year. And you know what? It is ok. We had a wonderful time, picked out some perfect pumpkins, and sent pictures to the ones who weren't there. We were so happy to have Chris join us too! Actually, he is the one who told us about this beautiful farm and pumpkin patch. Time passes. Children grow. Things change. And it is good! Traditions are wonderful, my friends. As long as you allow them to grow along with you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
We will be Trick~or~Treating, carving pumpkins, and watching Halloween movies. How about you? What are your plans?
Thanks for visiting!
