Trick or Treat – So Sweet

Posted in: Leslie's Blog, Author: leslie (November 3, 2010)

trick-or-treat-2010Here is evidence that the sweetness of the photo totally overrides the fact that it’s a blurry picture.

My first-grader spent most of her trick-or-treat travels holding hands with two of her best buddies. (Can you give me an “awwwwwww” right now?)

Sometimes we cling to our friends because we need someone to help us overcome the fear we have in our venture. But sometimes we hold our friends close to us because we just want to share the fun. I am absolutely certain that the latter was the reason that the three amigos banded together on beggers night.

THAT, my friend, is why I scrapbook. Not to get the perfect picture, or to apply elaborate embelishments. I scrapbook to try and capture the love that my children are experiencing in the every-day moments of their lives. Precious. Simply precious.

Have a great day…make it even greater by reaching out and holding a friends’ hand.

    As the Beatles remind us… “I wanna hold your hand…” Just ask our Mom!
