Write Your Name with a Sparkler

Last night when Dallas and Duane brought back the kids from Trick or Treating they also brought back this:

Ain't she a beaut?  Filled to the brim with "ooohs & ahhhs" galore!  I set my camera up on a tripod and, as hard as it is, I managed to get a few shots.

Sitting on our step is a pumpkin Jevan carved in school, we were officially informed that his name is "Sparky."

Sydney and Jevan were having a blast with sparklers.

Using sparklers Sydney spelled out letters for her name, afterwards I pieced them together with a photo program and here's how it turned out.  On fireworks mode my camera really picks up the sparklers but I wouldn't try this without a tripod.

Then Dallas got in on the fun, her and Sydney share some letters so she only had to do a few extra.  We often call her Dally, the nickname her Grandpa gave her the day she was born.

Even Duane got in on the fun.  I have to say he sure has a steady hand!

I think Sydney would use sparklers year 'round if they were available.  You can barely see her in the middle of the photo but her hands are sure moving.
A sad sight at the end of the night :(

Looks like a great time. Really cool with the sparklers. I left a comment on the post above and got server error, so I am not sure if the comment will show or not.
