Halloween pics

Okay, I published that last blog without Halloween pics so here goes a couple. The one with the pink wig was taken the day we went to a Pumpkin carving party with my church group. I wore the wig as my costume and Jonathan saw it and decided he just had to try it on. Once it was on he proceeded to spin and twirl around like a crazy man in a beauty pageant. You know me, I had to get the camera and voila!!

Talk to all of you soon!

Autumn has arrived!!!

Hi there all! I hope everyone is having a great fall so far. This is absolutely my favorite time of year. The leaves are gorgeous, the wind is blowing, the air is crisp and there's a need for socks and jackets. If only it could stay like this for more than a month I would be in heaven!!

Jonathan and I have been very busy these past few weeks. We went to Tennessee and had a wonderful time. Two weekends ago we went up to Blairsville, Ga. and spent some time with Gerald and Charlotte (J.T.'s grandsparents). We went to a pumpkin patch and had all kinds of fun! J.T. rode a pony, we all went on a hay ride, we rode a little train, went to a petting zoo, found our way through a maze, (we only g0t lost once due to J.T.'s expert navigational skills) and in general had a blast. Then we went to a 'trading post' and Jonathan got to chase a chicken around the parking lot. I don't know why that chicken didn't want to stop??? He got over the trauma when he spotted the large fire truck! Needless to say he can't stop talking about going back to papapapapapapa's and mamamamamama's house. (That's how he's saying Grandpa and Grandma now!)

Then on Tuesday we went trick or treating! He dressed as 'Noddy' from the PBS children's tv show "Make Way for Noddy". If you're not familiar with it you can look it up on line at He was absolutely the most adorable little trick or treater on the planet!!! The group of us was Me, J.T., Pam, Mary Ellen (my sister-in-law), Whitney (my friend) and her 10 year old daughter Alexus. Needless to say Jonathan was the envy of the neighborhood walking around with all girls!!! After we walked around to all of the houses J.T., Whitney, Lexi and I all went to a Harvest fest at a very large local church and Jonathan and Lexi got to ride a carousel and play all kinds of games. A fun time was had by all!

I hope this finds everyone well and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible during the upcoming holiday season!

Oh, and CONGRATULATIONS to Pam, our brand new addition to the nursing profession!!!
I cannot possibly tell you how very proud I am of you and please know that I never doubted for a second how well you would do in school and how grateful I am to know that you'll now be out there taking care of us!!! J.T. and I love you very much!!!!

Hi there all! We just got back from a few days in the Smoky Mts. with the family. We had a great time and only wished it could have been longer. Since I've returned I'm more determined than ever to make some good homemade fudge. I now only have to find a way to make it without calories!!!

Here are a few cute pictures of the most adorable little boy in the world. You may have already seen them but just thought you could never see too many! There's also an older gentleman in one of the pictures. You'll notice that he's containing a 2 1/2 year old bundle of energy from running into the street and getting squashed!!!

This weekend we're off to Blairsville to a SugarGum festival and a romp in a pumpkin patch. I'll post more pictures next week.

Until then have a great weekend!!!!
