Halloween Tradition

I was grateful to fly to Rochester from Iowa for a quick, fulfilling visit. When I flew in the night of October 24, my whole crew greeted me at the airport.

My view...
Their view...

The girls were sick for part of the time I was home, but we still got in many good memories.

We early voted.
We did Row-Tober.

Best of all, we made time for our Halloween tradition of carving pumpkins.

Getting started.
Hocus Pocus along for the fun.
Scooping the guts.
Carving toward the finish line.

I flew back before Halloween, but the pumpkins still looked good when I came home to stay on November 8.

Love this tradition of many years:
