happy halloween!

It is a rainy day here in New York state. The cozy rainy kind of day that is good for snuggling up with a good book and a hot cup of coffee, and if one dares, a stack of cookies. But alas, I am trying to get into better shape, not worse, so I chose to go out into the rain, and to the pool at the rec. center instead. Jonathan went with me, and he got tired of swimming before I did.

Home. Cozy time. I told Jon he could go on his tablet for a while so I can write out a daily plan for him. Ha, I am sitting here blogging with the purring cat on my lap, my feet covered up with someone's fleece robe. My coffee is only half-gone. The dryer is humming, and I am not going anywhere too soon.

Kathryn is doing her work, she is really good about it.

So tonight we are going out trick-or-treating. Emily is going with us, and Mali, and Abigail will meet us when she is done with physical therapy (for her knee). I think Kathryn, Evelyn, Suzanne, Sonja, Jonathan, Charlotte Claire, and Camille will go. Joseph is taking Sam and some of the boys from church to buy candy, then play cards, because they are getting way too big to go out from house to house:).

The little girls woke up happy and excited this morning. I sent them some candy for their classrooms, but they don't dress up at school anymore.

And...I have things to do.....

Happy Halloween! I'm envious of your little ones-you have the perfect excuse to go door to door. It would just be too weird if I dressed up and did it myself, haha.
