Every time I see these pictures of my Maryn from Halloween 2010 I can’t help but giggle. She was going through a phase where she really despised having her picture taken. In past layouts, you can even find her sticking out her tongue out at me. Over time, she started to realize that I was going to include pictures of her in our family albums no matter what face she was making. I would create a page and she would ask me, “Why wasn’t I smiling?” or “Why am I sticking my tongue out?” It donned on her that smiling would look a lot better and she started to change her attitude towards the inevitable family snapshots. 🙂
So … despite these photos, I promise she really was having a great Halloween and really did like her costume. 🙂

On a more personal note, I will be taking a blogging break for the next several days. My sweet Grampa passed away on Tuesday afternoon. My Grandmother had a stroke yesterday morning and then passed away early this morning. I guess they just didn’t want to be without each other. *sniffle* It’s sad, but it is sweet that they went together. He was 90 and she was 84. We will be holding a double funeral for them this weekend and I will be busy helping. Thanks to all of you for your sweet thoughts and prayers. I’m really okay. I will miss them terribly (crying as I write all this), but I am so grateful that I had the chance to be with them in their last days. To visit and spend time with my Grandma and tell them both how much they mean to me. Now they are in a beautiful place … together. And that makes me happy for them.
