Checking In

Been busy with life with not much time for blogging.  But let's catch up a bit.

How was your Halloween?  Us old folk just kinda hung out at home and enjoyed the wee ones stopping by for some treats.  

The neighborhood was flooded with kids knocking on doors and begging candy.  So we thought we'd join in the fun.   What do you think?  Am I retirement-worthy yet?  LOL **See video below** 


Snow has come to our neck of the woods ...  early- much.  Not a fan.  But Gracie and I are here to report that we got 11 inches.  Boo!!

Dance rehearsal time ...  and Rissi was the star...

Gracie decided she wanted to be a rock star for Halloween.  She asked to sing her beloved Samson a song...

Where Are You, My Samson

Samson, I miss you.  Haven't seen your sweet face in so long,
That is why I made up this song.
California fires are raging and I think about you every day,
For you, your mom, and Faith - I continue to pray.

So Samson, be safe... I'll wait for your return,
You've been absent too long but patience I must learn.
I know you're alright...  you're my one and only
Come back to blogland soon - So I won't be so lonely..

Your Gracie

Next topic:  Our Karate kid.  She was happy to get her new belt...

And speaking of new...  the hubby got...  a new car.  Well, almost new.

Halloween lingered...  and a warewolf showed up at our house one night.

I smell Jake

My new neighbor gifted me a gift certificate to have my nails done.  We are so blessed to have such good neighbors.  So during Summer's sleepover with us, I took her along for her first manicure.  She was excited!

Sorry this was such a random post...  I wanted to get something on but didn't have much time to think about it so this is what you get!

I am very anxious to slow down after Thanksgiving and start visiting blogs again...    Missed you all.


  1. You did a good job squeezing in everything. Oh my gosh, where did you and Gary get these old people outfits? And I LOVE Gracie's!!! We got NO trick-or-treaters! First time ever. Except for the grandkids. Gary's car is pretty, what is it? Summer looks so happy! We got a severe ice storm. The power was out in the entire county, electric companies had to come in from other states. Some people still have no power after all this time.

  2. Loved the picture of you and Gary dressed up for Halloween! I liked your random post; always good to catch up like this. Gracie looked so cute in her costume too! Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!


  3. It a busy time of year! Your costumes are too cute but not as cute as your REAL faces:) Oh Gracie, you are a star with that song and your guitar:) Enjoy your day and week ahead dear friend, HUGS!

  4. I will just comment on Gracie's song. Samson is fine, the fires are far away, their mommy has just been a bit lazy or should I say busy, then so, so tired. Now I know I have to post something soon. Real soon with a Samson picture in it. He still loves you, sweet Gracie.

  5. I have just posted a short blog post just for you, sweet Gracie. Samson and Faith love the song, love your Halloween outfit, so cute. Please go and check them out. The post is just for you because we love you so.

  6. loved all your costumes for halloween. gracie rocked it with hers. happy thanksgiving.

  7. Congratulations to the Karate Kid!!!!!
