and now it's

I got to Gramma it for a bit last evening, we brought Miss Lydia out Trick or Treating with us.

Margaret with Lydia (Mali is Lydia's mom, Margaret Lydia up to bring her with us because Mali is moving into a house this week, plus working, and is very busy), Miss Katness Everdeen aka Charlotte Claire, Little Red Riding Hood Camille, and Jonathan Harry Potter.

It was strange to go out with only three kids who were Trick or Treating. Margaret came along with Lydia, and Abigail came too, which was too much fun...we bundled up and trundled down the winding streets of a nice housing development not too far from here. We can't just go in our neighborhood, because we have no neighborhood. Cows do not give out candy.

Anyway, the four other teenage girls stayed home...

They are growing up too fast.

But we had a good evening. It was very chilly, in the thirties.

The three younger kids got lots of candy, and are having lots of fun playing with it, trading it, counting, sorting, and organizing it. They have the floor of Jon's room pretty much covered in candy. Sunny would certainly have a field day if they tried to do that in here.

We made these yesterday...this is the plate I left for Emily and Mirielle at their house. They had to work a 12 hour shift yesterday, so they deserve cookies.

And start out November with a quick trip to the store for dog food...

Good morning Della 🌞 I'm glad the kids had fun trick or treating!! They just LOVE that. I sometimes think half the fun is running around in the dark. We had about 50-60 kids......all excited. Baby Lydia is adorable as always. The cookies look yummy.....what a great mum you are taking them to the working girls. Yes, it's November already.....I can't believe it. Where did October go? I'm hoping November weather will be better for us than October, which was mostly not great! We gets lots of sun here on the prairies, but October was different 😖....cloudy, snowy, cloudy and more cloudy. Have a great day!!

Cloudy is cozy sometimes, but persistent cloudiness gets old...and snow, oh I love parts of it, but hate it can be so scary and treacherous. And yes, half the fun IS running around in the dark...being out in the neighborhoods with all the other people, checking out the costumes, it's just fun.
