It's Spook-tacular

It really is Spook-tacular to be able to announce the arrival of 2 new "followers".  They are:

1. Randy and Pam Warner
2. Cindy
I hope they enjoy reading along and following us through this crazy journey !  Thanks so much !

We babysat today since our DD and DSIL had to work.  They have to work before every holiday since they are managers in the grocery business.  That means we get up at 5:30 sharp, no lounging under the warm covers, to be there by 7:00 am.  We are already on deck for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We're leaving Tumwater on Dec. 26th, so they'll have to make other arrangements for New Year's.

We never have a problem keeping busy when we're with the "Grands".  They like to go a mile a minute.  At one point Zoey was inspecting Bruce's head and face and she wanted to know why he didn't have as much hair now, and how come he had lines on his forehead.  Did someone draw them there?  Ah, they are honest little folks and don't mind saying it like it is.

Bruce got some tubs of ready to bake cookies, we purchased during a school fund-raiser, out of the freezer.  He decided to bake them up with the girls this morning.  They all had fun...and they ALL sampled way too many times.

I also got out the Play Doh stuff from the closet and the girl's got busy making....I don't know what.  They had fun, though.  They even cleaned it all up when they were finished without having to be asked.  WOW, that was a first and I'm not complaining.

After DD got home, we came back to the motorhome.  I needed to prepare a baked ziti casserole to take over to a family from our church.  The mom had surgery for cancer and we are taking turns bringing meals to them for the next week.  I was able to save a supply of those cookies from this morning to take dessert for the family, and we're taking a green salad over, too.

In a couple of hours we're going back over to the "Grands" to go trick-or-treating with them.  We aren't wearing a costume, except those that make us look like Grandma and Grandpa.  We won't hang around long after, that will be enough for the day.  This is turning out to be one very busy weekend. 

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Until next long for now!
