HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

Preston is dressing up and we are going to go visit Grandma at work and then we're going to daddy's work. I'm making severed witch fingers to take with us.

Preston's party was so fun on Saturday! So many people came! It was so nice to spend the day with friends and family - Preston made out with a lot of fun toys!

Sherry, we were very fortunate weatherwise. We got some snow but did not lose power.

Wonder how others are fairing.

HI all - I do now know what happened to this day! It is after 5 and the kids will start trick-or-treating in less than an hour. My girls are sitting outside. Julie's friend is here and brought her two dogs (yes, I currently have five dogs in my house - I must be crazy). Anne's two dogs and Chloe (M's dog) will dress up in costume and sit outside to hand out the candy. That way my other two won't bark as much. I think that is one of the reasons I don't care much for Halloween. The dogs are always barking. I DO like that we have ToTing from 6-8 - no early birds or late night bell ringing.

It is much colder than previous Halloweens so Bill is going to put out our little firepit and the girls can sit around the fire for warmth! I can't remember the last time it was this cold for Halloween.

My friend sent a link that some states aren't doing trick or treating until next week due to power outages, downed trees, etc. Poor kiddos!

We've had a long, busy day! I slept horribly last night and I'm so wiped out! Preston was adorable in his penguin costume - he even kept the hat on! I just scheduled another photo session for tonight. I couldn't get a good picture of him since he never sits still. Grandma is coming over after work and then Brandon and I will take him trick-or-treating to some of our neighbor's houses. It's not too cold here today which is unusual but nice.

Just got back from seeing the 'transformers' known as Camron & Conrad - they looked so cute and could not wait to get out to do their goodie gathering

Jennifer - those pictures are AMAZING!!!! Preston is such a cutie!!!! All of the shots are fabulous!

Trick or treating is done. We have quite a bit of candy left over so I wonder if we had fewer kids. Since I didn't see or hear any, I have no idea!

I had mainly teenagers trick or treating. it was fun to see the few youngsters all dressed in costumes. It was a bit slower than usual. I got tired of standing at the door. So I am calling it quits for the night!

Lovely night here but no trick or treaters....in my old neigborhoods I would have like 300.

That is ok. I am an old woman....and somewhat happy to be done. But. I did miss the cute costumes and chatter.

I miss my girls being little, the costumes I sewed, the excitement, make up, etc...No one knows- but MOM how much goes into all of it. Oh well....

It's not his 1st Halloween, it's his 2nd!! I was too frazzled last night to notice the error. I'm going to call today and see if they can reprint the picture.

Hi!

Just a quick post. We have power and cable back! Our power came back last night around 7:30, while we were at a friend's house warming up. We got home and had no cable, but that was OK. We woke up this am and yes, we have cable now!

The kids and I have had no school for the past two days. And trick or treat is postponed until Sun night. Lots of folks upset, but what can you do? It really isn't safe.

There are still many without power and lots of trees and wires down and roads impassable. Hopefully my many friends without power will get it today. We have some HydroQuebec trucks that came down to help out.

Today we will spend the day doing laundry, cleaning, etc. All the stuff that was suppossed to get done over the weekend. I'm very thankful that we have today off!

You are NOT an old woman....

I also miss my daughter and granddaughter being little again in their 'girly' costumes. Cannot sew worth a lick but did have a few costumes made by others. Still have the beautiful Snow White one that a friend made hanging in the closet downstairs.

Reynold left before the sun came up to head over to DC for a couple of days. He has another freelance loan review job at a bank over there and had to be show up at 8 am. DC is not that far from us but traffic is like unbelievably crazy - that's why when I worked there, drove 1/2 hour then took the MARC train into Union Station and walked the rest of the way. Great exercise... wish I could do that now.

Good Morning!

Jen - Nice to see you checking in. I'm glad everything is getting turned back on for ya!

Joanne - sounds like the girls had a good time handing candy out!

We had about 10 trick or treaters and have candy left! I was excited about trick or treaters coming!

We are hitting 79 today and a cold front tomorrow with a high of 40 and winds out of the North 30 miles an hours! BRRRRR!

Have a great day!

Sherry

Hi all!

Jen - will be thinking of you and praying for you both tomorrow.

This freak snowstorm really did a job. What a weather year! And Sherry - your high temps are HIGH and then that cold front. Goodness. We are in the 50s until the weekend when we'll get to the 60s (last I heard anyway)

I have to go get Julie from college and then drive over to the library to pick up a book she reserved. I've done nothing else today.

Jen, stay calm knowing that you and your little guy are in many thoughts and prayers.

Btw, if you would like to you could register with Cole's Foundation and get a free Coles Pages where you could post updates, get encouragement, etc. and it is completely private. We have a great prayer team group and right now they are doing a Christmas goodie package campaign for the kids. You will find many other families who have children with various health problems who help one another.

Don't know if there is a Chick-fil-a near you, but they have Samaritan Purse shoe boxes that you can fill with toys, soap, toothbrushes/toothpaste, socks, etc. and then take back to their store so they can ship them out across the world.

Picked up two so Camron and Conrad can fill them up with things that they would like to give to boys their own ages. Hopefully, to teach them to think and care about others. Did this for years with Athena and Alexander which they enjoyed and looked forward to doing.

We had fun trick-or-treating last night. Preston waddled around for everyone to see.

We're supposed to get a big storm later today. It's getting really windy.

Cute chuckle...

A married couple was in a terrible accident where the woman’s face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn’t graft any skin from her body because she was too skinny. So the husband offered to donate some of his own skin.

However, the only skin on his body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from his buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the woman’s new beauty. She looked more beautiful than she ever had before! All her friends and relatives just went on and on about her youthful beauty!

One day, she was alone with her husband, and she was overcome with emotion at his sacrifice. She said, “Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. There is no way I could ever repay you.”

“My darling,” he replied, “I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek.”

This is so cute...

After losing another tooth, young-old Timmy became more curious about the mysterious tooth fairy.

Finally putting two and two together, he came right out and asked his mother, “Mom, are you the tooth fairy?”

Assuming he was old enough to hear the truth, she replied, “Yes Timmy, I am.”

Timmy seemed to take this news quite well.

But as he headed for the door, he slowly turned back toward his mother with a curious look on his face and said, “Wait a minute mom. How do you get into the other kids’ houses?”

Drew's medical issues seem so minor compared to what others are going through, though with his cath coming up maybe I should.
