SOME OF MY VERY VERY FAVORITE MEMORIES,
TRADITIONS WERE HALLOWEEN PARTIES AT
IT WAS "THE NEIGHBORHOOD"
THE SAFE PLACE TO TRICK OR TREAT, THE
NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE EVERYONE CAME,
MANY HAD BLOCK PARTIES,
ALL THE NEIGHBORS WERE OUT TO VISIT
ALONG WITH THEIR OWN FAMILIES THERE TO CELEBRATE.
A PERFECT PLACE FOR MY CHILDREN TO EXPERIENCE
HALLOWEEN THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.
Then we moved to Thibodaux and we tried to keep
the traditions going but the neighborhood we lived in,
Lee Drive, became unsafe on the Hallowed eve.
We continued our pumpkin carving parties a few weeks
before Halloween so it became the tradition we all looked
forward to. Many have carved their first pumpkins at
the Riera home. It always surprised us as to how many
people did not carve or decorate pumpkins during this
Now that we are in Plaquemine, Halloween became
safe once again in the areas we gather,
Kirtley Drive and The Island.
Our Carving tradition still happening yearly.
This year we had a great gathering as we were able to
celebrate on a weekend night, being Friday.
Pictures can explain just how much fun we al had...
One of the best parties because of the people we love
who gathered to share it...

This girl, although no blood relation, will always, always,
be my sister in law!
Carter's Mommy, Melissa, one of my craft buddies
Myself with my gypsy baby and her Meg...
they are such a stunning couple!
Then there is this bond, Mumsie and Bean,
I love this child so darn much!
Can you see the glow that my dear daughter in law, possesses?
If all goes well, Bean will be a big sis sometime in May!
Nothing makes me happier than surrounding myself with kiddies.
These, two, Carter and Lizzie call me Mumsie...
I often wonder.. what goes through his head...
and on his head...
Looked like fun to Amalie
Meg, being her first carving won with this
Cat pumpkin, so serious she was.
