Well, you can already see pictures from Halloween HERE, as usually it was a fun time.
Neko-Chan and her Halloween prop
Echo’s wedding dress photos are HERE.
October was also Ken’s birthday… his 40th if you can believe it! We kept it low key, just as the birthday boy requested. He is not a big party animal. But he also was given an award for his hard work involved in getting his mental health under control and advocating for the association that helped him. We got to dress up and everything!
New outfit and all
It was a fun sort of duo season month with time to jump in leaves (and rake them up, slightly less fun)…
And a bit of snow to toy with as well.
We even had TWO foreign visitors, Jeff flew down from Canada to hang out. Never a bad thing, friends and family flying down when we still can’t return ourselves.
With Jeff there is ALWAYS yummy curry.
And Karyn!!! A shorter visit than her normal yearly visit but we packed in the fun and hugs and … shopping of course!
So we may enable each other… just a little… and we like it that way!
We had our yearly pumpkin patch trip with our friend Trish and her two kids. Always fun and thankfully on a day when the weather mostly cooperated.
I am so grateful that Trish is willing to embrace our loud and crazy family.
Ken made pumpkin pie from scratch.
The twins took on acolyting at church.
We worked on all sorts of school stuff from crafts to book work and more.
We had the Novaks over for VR fun.
I continued my obsession with Neko-Chan pictures.
We had a bonfire with the Schwartz family and I got my cat fix.
I worked my buns off at the YMCA, with the family in tow, of course.
Emanuel and Trinity even got their YELLOW belts!!
And I crafted, my sanity is very closely tied to crafting it seems.
Of course more images to enjoy. Fall really was pretty last year!
