Halloween

Dad loved to take us trick or treating! Even on those cold evenings he would go with us until we got to old. I always looked forward to that. When we didn't go with him anymore he would do his own thing. A couple of years he hung a ghost from the pine tree using a pulley system. When people came up to the door he would let the ghost drop and scare them  It worked pretty well.


Christmas

We always had Christmas at Dad's house on Christmas Eve.  When we opened presents we each had our own pile. Dad would hand them out and we would put them by us. Then one by one we would take turns opening them while Dad used the video camera. After a little bit we all started to open our presents at the same time. Then Dad would say, 'Slow down.' It was always a good time!!!!!!!!!
