There are moments in life that are precious, even if they only last 5 minutes. 

Last weekend, when we went to my parents’ house for Halloween, my mom made a point to have a special project for the boys.  It was something I loved doing as a child – making paper chains.  Do you remember those?  You peeled them apart and licked them; they were in pastel colored strips and you just linked them together like crazy… 

Well, in 2008, they are a tad different.  They come with a glue stick and are on patterned paper.  Pre-cut and ready to go, but a bit cooler now…  The boys had a lot of fun for those 5 fleeting minutes.  I enjoyed watching them – I sat back while mom played with them and helped them, watching it through a camera lense.  It was amazing to see and to capture it all… 

Just thought I would share the pics…  sometimes the smallest events can add the most to our days.
