I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

I Can hardly stand the thought of going Pumpkin shopping without her.
She liked October just as much as I do.
I'll make sure to choose a pumpkin she would have chosen.

I'm getting my "Monster Mash" cookie jars ready to go 
and some lanterns for Kristen's table.

I'm thinking the grand-kiddies are going to want to make some of these.

I do the same thing. Look for the things Carly would have picked out and that's what I buy. Carly loved all things creepy...scary...Halloween-ish. I'm so sad when I turn on the TV this time of year and see Carly's favorite Halloween shows. All of the Halloween Town movies. We still have them all on our DVR..she watched them during all seasons. (((hugs)))
