That’s Jana holding her daughter Caitlyn.  Jana’s son Patrick is distributing candy to the evening’s various ghosts, ghouls, fairies and pumpkins while his grand parents watch.

This photo is how I remember Halloween both as a child and as a parent of young children.  A soft autumn evening, the streets full of costumed kids, slightly scary, slightly silly, parents trailing just a step or two behind but urging their little mermaids or pirates along to the next lighted porch and reminding them to say “Trick or Treat.”  I hope Patrick and Caitlyn remember the wonder of it all and pass it along to their kids.

  1. Thanks for a great picture Bill. We had over 80 little ‘goblins’ in Mt. Airy last evening.

  2. Cate and I had a great time with you. Thanks for coming and perfectly capturing the evening! Do you have plans to sell your photos?
