 This Halloween we have Spiderman
 eating cherry pie
 and a skunk
rolling around on the floor.

Gratitude # 24

Marilyn, Kathy and I went to high school together and we all turned 60 this year.  We planned our week long birthday celebration all year.  Kathy flew in from Washington state and we drove to Marilyn's home above Fort Collins.  We had a wonderful time for the 2 days we were together before I received news of my brother's death.  We stayed up late playing games, laughing, remembering, talking about our children, our grandchildren, the good times, the bad times.  Spending time with long-time friends is so comfortable, such a blessing and I am so grateful we had 2 days.  
 On the 2nd day we went into Fort Collins and walked around.  On our way back we saw these moose and quite a few deer.
 Mom and baby were running off, so they are pretty blurry.

We saw many deer, but this one was right beside the road and didn't run off when we stopped.

It was sad that I didn't get to stay the week, but am glad I did get to share 2 days with my long-time friends.

Gratitude #23

I am grateful to Tito and Dave for saving my laptop.  It froze up and I was afraid I had lost all the pictures.  Tito got it up and running again, but somehow the update to my anti-virus software caused my num lock to freeze and I could only type numbers no matter what key I hit.  Dave found the fix for that.  Thank you.   I have made a back up copy of my pictures.

Five Months

Trevin is 5 months old today.  He is noticing things around him, grabbing for everything,
rolls over, grabs his feet, is trying to get up on his knees, lifts his head when he is on his back,
sits happily in the swing and keeps his eyes on big brother.

Gratitude #21

I am grateful for Marilyn and Kathy who were with me when I got the news my brother had died.  Thank you for the comfort, for the distraction and for understanding I needed to go home.
