We are at the beginning of the holiday season as well as in the midst of full-on autumn bliss around here. Changes have been occurring and will keep coming and I’ll be sharing those soon. But in the meantime, I was blessed to enjoy a visit with long-distance grandkids. And I didn’t travel alone this time. I had a very dashing and dapper companion, although he did have to be a bit squished…in a suitcase…. But oh my, the look on the grandkids’ faces made it all worthwhile!
Yes, indeed. Our beloved scarecrow. That fellow has been in our family for over 16 years and my grandkids and I LOVE him. So I packed him up, took him to visit, and now he and I are safely back and he is ready for the cute trick or treaters coming later this week.
My senior mom and I are off to pick up more candy and fun candy alternatives as well as plenty of cute pass it ons to share sweets and the sweet Word of God with all the cutie pies coming to visit and looking forward to it. This year we will have an extra helper – one of my granddogs. He is going to be coming over to show off his costume
Pssst – sneak preview
and then will stay a bit to keep great-grandma company and maybe even snooze with her, while I greet the big and little-uns at the front door. And I’m expecting a HUGE smile on his face when I take his cute costume OFF! He’s very sweet and patient at being dressed up but… Unlike a another pooch my senior mom just told me about who LOVES to dress up. 🙂
We all had holiday fun last weekend. My grandkids enjoyed various harvest fest fun and I got to help with our church’s Halloween party for the church and our local area. Quite fun and so many smiling faces!
Life does bring a continual series of changes, doesn’t it. Yet through it all, it’s nice that some things stay fairly constant – especially sweet smiles from grandkids, loving hugs for senior parents, cute granddogs and delightful scarecrows. How about you? How is your Halloween week going? Got any fun ideas for the grandkids or the trick or treaters? Do you have a granddog who is dressing up? Yes! We’d love to hear and/or see pix. 🙂 Have a fun time!
