Today is exactly 4 weeks since open heart surgery and the much anticipated day that driving is now allowed. I really put on the miles. First going to Aldi for much needed groceries, then to Sam's Club to order pizza for the Berean workers. From there to Bereans to share the pizza. I regret I forgot to bring the camera but that was sure a sight for sore eyes. Every parking place was full, the office was also full of volunteers all working hard and getting everything done. After lunch and once the kitchen was cleaned up I drove Eva Jean to Skylines to drop her off and the intermediate studies for Gertrude then from there over to Sarah and Nolan's house to see their room addition and check up on Zion. Sarah weighed Zion while I was there and she has gained another 2 ounces. After that I was going to drive home but then realized the new trailer title was in my purse so decided to drive to the DMV to get the title in my name and get a license plate for it. That place, the last day of the month, was packed. The parking lot was full to overflowing. The line stretched around and around then all the way to the bathroom. It probably isn't ever a good idea to show up at the place the last day of the month. Thankfully the line for new license plates wasn't that long.
When I finally made it home just before supper time, Karin was here working horses. I walked up and watched for a bit but was too cold and too tired to stay outside, so ended up heading back down to the house to rest on the couch. Karin stopped in before leaving explaining the horses are getting too fat and the girths are not going to fit them much longer. We will need to purchase some new bigger girths. Karin was given the ok to buy 4 more girths.
A text came in from one of our past customers, they would like to purchase Bethany and will come next week to pick her up.
This evening Anna brought the girls over so they could trick or treat in our neighborhood.
Above is baby Abe, below is Jack
Above is Jace and below is Addyson
I wonder what size candy bars are given out there since all things are bigger in Texas,
Stephanie sent the picture below of Israel stating, he wants to be just like Uncle Nolan.
Poor Elisabet was expected to go trick or treating as herself. Stephanie didn't even send a picture of her. We think they should have dressed her up as the rabbit Israel was hunting.
Sarah and Nolan sent the picture below of Zion.
She was 4 weeks old yesterday.
Mark and I took the left over fruit and candy over to Joan's house, rang the bell and when the kids came running up the stairs and opened the door we both exclaimed "Trick or Treat". Hannah took one look at us and said, "That's the scariest costumes we have seen all night!"
From there Mark and I drove to mom's for a visit. Ruth was there and she and mom were reading old diaries of past vacations. It was warm and cozy in her house with her gas heater. Mark got a fire going strong in the wood burner tonight and the heat feels wonderful. It is cold this evening.
