Can't wait 'til the rumpus begins!!
Getting five grandchildren to sit for a picture isn't easy.
The banner isn't quite centered, but I doubt that matters!

Halloween is coming...

...and here's two of my favorite spooks!!

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.
My brother was born on Halloween, and he took me
trick or treating for many years.
He was fourteen years older than me,
 and although the years between us were far apart,
we both enjoyed a scary Halloween.
I'm a blessed Grandma of 5 now,
and I'm still  anticipating October 31st!!
I hope you all enjoy a fun-filled Halloween!!

A grandmother pretends she doesn't know 
who you are on Halloween.

Halloween...'s almost here!

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.

“Fall has always been my favorite season. 
The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, 
as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” 

I know it's toasty here in Chicago,
but I can't stop dreaming about Fall!

My Granddaughters...

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. 
One moment you’re just a mother.
 The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.

It was a beautiful wedding....

And I'll choose you over and over and over. 
Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. 
I'll keep choosing you."
