Thursday was Spooky Day but the family didn’t feel like hosting a costume party nor did the kids express interest in going trick-or-treating so they opted for a quiet day together.

The Snyder family continued their tradition of getting a family portrait done at the holiday festival but left as soon as the picture was collected from the booth’s tray.fall_zpslvsdqra6

Grace suggested that they carve pumpkins as a way to show their loved ones that even in darkness (grief) there will always be the flicker of light (treasured memories) to lighten their hearts and lead the way.pumpkin1_zpsto1zr5ospumpkin2_zpsflqvlrky
