This year on Halloween I did not participate in handing out candy or going trick or treating with the grand-boy. Instead I stayed in my room reading and playing on the computer while others took over these Halloween tasks that I have done for so many years. My son carved a pumpkin which I saw in the kitchen before I went to "hide" in the bedroom. It looked fantastic and much better than anything I ever did when he was a child. I could not find our regular tea candles so, after grousing a while, I gave him a more expensive aromatherapy candle to put in the pumpkin to go outside. A few minutes later I saw the results of his artistry as the candle lit through the etchings on the pumpkin. However, I did not see it in person. Instead I saw a picture of it on Facebook. In addition to clicking "like" I yelled down to my son that the pumpkin looked great! Are we a modern family or what?
