"God made us for joy. God is joy, and the joy of living reflects the original joy that God felt in creating us." (St. John Paul the Great)

I've had a lot on my mind lately, and a lot on my heart. I have started several posts, but have left them as drafts -- I just can't seem to get the conveyance right.

At least I have some pictures to share.

You know that crazy wind blowing around last week? We had snow, too. Although most of it is gone already.

The kids and I went back to the Twin Cities over the weekend. My brother and sister-in-law and nephew are visiting my parents from California. They dressed as golfers for Halloween.

We had fun trick-or-treating with cousins and friends.

Cowboy Cousins

Ginny Weasley and Hermione Granger


My parents broke their record again this year -- over 1100 trick-or-treaters. It's my Gramma's job to keep tally.

I spent some delightful evenings with friends. and pizza. and wine. and white russians. and laughter. and knitting. and advice. I love you all! And am so blessed to have you in my life!

It was a long drive home yesterday. Tonight I'm taking Jamie's advice and watching Robin Hood with my husband. and some pizza rolls and some wine and some ice cream.
