Our pumpkin for my dad this year


Since my father died on halloween 2007 I decided to carve a pumpkin each year in his honor.

We don't celebrate halloween in The Netherlands, but I started to decorate our home for halloween since 2008. We always are looking out to the 31th October, because we think only happy thoughts of my dad.

I miss him very much and each year more and more. But I know, that when my time has come to leave this earth I'll meet him again. "Dad this year I carved an owl, Love You!"

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
