Leafing / Leaving...


These pictures were taken last year of our grandson, Trey. 
He was into exploring everything.


A rake was so fascinating!

 Trey this year.

The rake still holds a curiosity.

~~~~~~~~  ***  ~~~~~~~

We've had storm after storm of wind and RAIN!
Then the sun popped out...
what a great time for a long walk!
Street after street, were leaves and trees that
were photo worthy.

Then there were those who 
didn't appreciate the leaves as much I did.

This man kept blowing 
the leaves off the sidewalk.
Only to have the wind would blow them back.
When I walked by he just shook his head.


Even our birdbath was full of leaves.
Just one picture before I took the leafs out.

Well, that's about it for leafing.
Now, for leaving,

I'm going to take a break... 
see you soon!



"I have told you these things, so that you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart!
I have overcome the world."
John 16:33

November


While doing the morning dishes,
 I looked up to pause and enjoy the season's change;
 fog, colors and smells.
There was  peacefulness about this scene. 
Yes, it's  November.




"Teach me to do your will, for you
are my God!
Let your good Spirit lead
me on level ground!"

~Psalms 143:10~

I'm Back From Idaho


It was a jammed packed visit
 to Idaho this time!
I have a traveling diary that I keep in my car,
 that I record all the different "pit-stops" 
along the way.
I have driven to Idaho 13 times
 (flown twice) 
in the last two years!
To help me remember each trip,
 I name each visit.
This trip is called Harvest Festival

But there was so much more going on.

Above is a series of pictures.
Lulu was pretending to put make-up on Ila May.
The bottom set is Levi teaching 
Silas how to wrestle.
These siblings love each other soooo much!

Lulu and I had our annual Tea Party.
This china set stays at my home but travels over
once in a while, making the occasion very special.

I asked these two to strike a pose
 and this is what they did.

 Selfie with Silas
By the way he just started walking!
 He is doing so well, since his open heart surgery,
 last May


The Harvest Festival was the reason  excuse
to travel to Idaho this time.
Their church holds this annual event.
Pie contest, relay races, horse rides,
 bow and arrows shooting,
hay rides, caramel apples, cider,
 the list goes on and on!

I could of inundated this post with pictures
 but I held back with just a few.





Lulu and Levi entered all the events
This was the Three-legged Race.
They were on a team that had all ages!




They had so much fun and they did very well.


I was on the side lines cheering them on,
 along with Silas and Ila May.
There were so many kids.
I'd look down and see someone new who had joined us.
It was a great event for all the kids and parents.

This is the Grandma Picture!
