First Halloween! My Mommy made my very first Halloween costume - aren't I cute??? Uh-oh, I had a matching Trick or Treat bag - maybe Puppy took off with it!

Here's me and my Mom...she is really having fun celebrating her first Halloween with her precious new little baby boy.

Me and Mom again...doesn't she look cute all dressed up as Minnie Mouse???

We got stuck at Grandma's house - they won't quit taking pictures. I want outta here so I can go get some more candy!

My very favorite Puppy costume. I look just like my stuffed "Puppy". I loved this costume so much, I wore it for two straight years, even in the heat of both summers!

Life is good. I have my Puppy, Pumpkin and a full bag of candy!

Halloween with the next door neighbors, Jesse and David Martens.

My friends' mom, Kris Martens, is dressed up at a witch - it's getting pretty scary around here now!

Yippeeeeee - the night's over and I'm full of sugar!

Are you scared? Count DRACULA is here!

I don't think my mom is too frightened...


I'm dressed as Superman, but my best friend, Daver Martens, says I am a special hero because I have the guts to wear underwear over my Superman outfit!

Amber and I are getting ready to go out trick or treating in the neighborhood.

My little brother's first Halloween! Isn't he cute in my little pumpkin costume? I love being a Skeleton this year!

Me and Bro...just clowning around.

Little Bro is wearing my Skeleton costume and I am an ugly witch this year!

STAR WARS...Michael and I LOVED our Light Sabers!

Yeah, you hold him back and I'll zap him with my saber!


Halloween night and the moon is a glow,
The wind is howling like it's saying hello.
Kids are running around through the streets,
Halloween in heaven, boy what a treat.

Although it is dark, there are stars in the sky,
The spirits are happy, they soar as they fly.
Halloween night in heaven is grand,
A beautiful time for all in this land.

Treats are available to those that passed old,
A warm special blanket so they won't catch cold.
Little small candies for sweet girls and boys,
And all kinds of special beautiful toys.

It's such a special wonderful night,
When Heaven decides to put out the lights.
So sit back and listen and look up above,
You might catch a glimpse of the ones that you love.

In loving memory of Joey and his Halloween Heavenly Buddies

'Twas Halloween night and all near the house,
Lots of creatures were stirring, the ghosts were aroused.
The pumpkins were carved and lit up with care.
Trick-or-treaters were roaming.....
but he wasn't there.

Children were gathered at my door and said...
"Trick-or-Treat, Halloween, we want to be fed".
Decked out in their costumes from shoes to their caps.
I gave them some candy, went back in to relax.

Then out on the porch arose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the front door I flew like a flash.
The noise made me shutter, then I heard a crash.

The moon on the crest of the pumpkin's bright glow,
Gave the luster of midnight to creatures below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a cute little ghost.... I had nothing to fear.

He seemed so happy, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment he was no longer sick.
More rapid than bats his ghost friends they came,
And they all carried pumpkins with beautiful flames.

"Now mothers, now fathers, now sisters, and brothers
And family, and friends, and all of the others....
In the heavens we live, and we'll come when you call.
Just call us, just call us, just call us all."

As October witches on Halloween fly,
When they sail on their brooms up to the sky.
So up to the heavens his ghost friends they flew,
Then back down to earth to see me and you.

And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof.

The whispers and giggles of each little ghost.
Then one little ghost appeared on the ground.
He came from the roof without making a sound.

He was dressed all in white from his head to his foot,
His clothes were like silk and he carried a book.
A cute little pumpkin he had in his clasp.
As he opened the book I sighed and I gasped.

His eyes how they twinkled, his smile was so merry.
His hands were so gentle, but I was so weary.
His touch was the softest that I'd ever know.
And the pumpkin he held had a beautiful glow.

As I stood there and watched him I felt a great peace.
And a bright light encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a sweet face and a wonderful grin,
That beamed when he laughed from his ears to his chin.

He nodded and knew that I needed some help.
I cried when I saw him in spite of myself.
The spark in his eyes and the glow 'round his head,
Soon gave me to know that he wasn't so dead.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
As he checked off my name in his book, under hurt.
He looked at me gently and wrinkled his nose,
He gave me a hug, to the clouds he arose.

He joined all his ghost friends and blew me a kiss,
And away they all flew even though they'll be missed.
I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight.....
"Mom, we'll be back again next HALLOWEEN night."
