This first picture is of Robin in 1981. I'm not sure she knew what Halloween was all about, but she had lots of fun playing with her pumpkin. She put different things in it, carried it around the house, swung it around, and kept it with her.
Granddaddy always had a big garden. One year he grew pumpkins and told Robin she could pick one to take home. She was so excited and could hardly wait to carve it. She had specific directions about how it was supposed to look, but I haven't found a picture of it when it was finished.
