Halloween, a kid holiday. Just a day to pretend, dress in costume and get candy. Sometimes, at the dental office, we see a few more broken teeth, after Halloween.
My neighborhood, there is a community party. We don't get trick or treat guests. Or maybe, it was the first year, we lived in this house, I gave out toothbrushes.
When Nicole was young, I would always take her a toothbrush or two, when I would visit. She would kind of shy, but would get unshy quickly, with her new toothbrush.

We searched for treasures along the river bank. We pretended to fish in a small puddle with a stick. Just having a great time, hanging out, exploring. Of course, Nicole is edging closer to puddles. I said to Nicole, your Mom is going to get mad, if you get your shoes muddy. That innocent little face, looked up and said, "Sometimes, you just can't help it" (getting muddy shoes). I just chuckled. Yep, Sharon was a little mad about the muddy shoes. But, Nicole and I had a great adventure.

Gary wanted a penguin, too. So, his is the black and white penguin with the scarf. Looks like I should knit another scarf, as both penguins are at our house, now.
Spring break 06, Nicole and I made 2 potholders, with the weaving frame. We also, knit a couple hats with a round knitting loom. When we picked her Dad up at work for lunch, he asked "did we finish the hat?". Nicole told her Dad, yes, it is finished, but she didn't want to wear it, as it was raining. precious, sweet thoughts.
The yarn for the hat was purchased at Wal-Mart. A couple days later, Nicole and I went to a real yarn shop. Her eyes got big and she said "Wow". Nicole picked out some yarn with a little bling for a scarf.
Keeping the knitting tradition, this spring break, I knit and stuffed a bear from chinchilla yarn. Nicole picked a blue color. Of course, the bear had to have a scarf. Good use of leftover sock yarn.

Nicole, we the fam, friends, classmates miss you.
We know you are in a better place, but still have sadness in our hearts.
At times, we can share funny stories, laugh a little.
Your Dad mentioned the book "Socks for Supper", and how many times he read it to you.
It is a very cute book. I enjoyed reading it.

Here is a photo of Lady. I was out for a walk, today. My mind wandering, too.
A couple years, ago, Nicole and I were in my car, near the farm and we saw some dogs in the road. Nicole was concerned for their safety. Then, Nicole asked about Lady, too. Of course, I had to say she had died, but lived a long life. Nicole had such a tender heart for all animals.
Lady was a great dog, great walking partner for me, she lived to the age of 15.
I am sure Lady is keeping Nicole company, too.
