A child’s first Halloween is really more special to the parents than to the child. Shopping for the costume, trying to get him to wear it and to stay still for the photo is a right of passage for a mother. And I was no different. Here is Michael at one in his Winnie the Pooh costume. I still remember him sitting on the front porch at our first home in Pittusburgh. It wasn’t exactly cold that year in October, and I still get hot looking at the photo. But we all had fun! October 31, 1997 Pittsburgh, Pennsylania
