Snapchats From my Kids

Especially when they show adorable videos of my granddaughter or grand-animals.

I particularly love this one from Zeb showing Dino checking out her rabbit-friends 🙂

After I asked Zeb if I could use this photo for my blog, he kindly offered to send images of the other grands. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

**For the month of November each year, I try to focus on something I’m thankful for each day. It is the month that holds Thanksgiving where I live, after all. Focusing on the positive and remembering the little things that make life great are things I should do more often. Last year I found that writing every day during the holiday time got a bit stressful. So this year I’m writing throughout the year and scheduling the posts to go out in November.

Fun Halloween Evening

IMG_4683.jpgDay 3/30 – It was Halloween a few days ago, and I had a very enjoyable day. I’m quite thankful for that. Mom and I went downstairs to pass out candy to hordes of creatively-dressed little ones (some even brought dogs that were dressed up :) ). The rain and wind let up for the exact hrs the trick-or-treaters were out. What a gift!

When we were done we were yakking a bit with Zeb and Bri. It was fun to see them enjoying the day as well. Bri let me take a picture of her and her hedgehog, Ollie. Our oldest son who lives in Utah and Zeb (our middle son who currently lives with us) were having a Facetime conversation because CJ had sent Zeb an early birthday present and wanted to see him open it.

IMG_4681.jpgIt was a scorpion lollipop. Have you ever heard of such a thing before? A perfect gift for our adventuring middle son. He exclaimed over it stating that he had eaten lollipops before, and he had eaten scorpions before (what?!?!?!) but never together.

The things we don’t know about our kids…

Anyway, a very fun evening, and I’m thankful to have had such a nice time with my family.
