May the Force be with y’all

1 Nov 2011 – Happy All Saints Day

Mother Nature threw her fury again and this time at the Northeastern states. The worst freak Oct snow-storms with 2′ snow at some places leaving at least 15 dead and over 1.6mil people without power!

Survived yet another Halloween. Sometimes people forget what it was like to be a kid and that is sad for them! Am so blessed to have children and grandchildren to remind me. LOL. The grandchildren were on such a sugar-high last night but had no problems going to bed and getting up in time for their school this morning. Now they will have candies to last them until next Halloween 🙂

The batteries in the 5 paper lanterns are still lasting (testing to see how long 2 AAA batteries will go on for!). 6 battery operated Tealights are supposed to last 60hrs, so let’s see if it is true! Gator, the faded skunk is certainly showing her nearly 11dog years age! Light saber with 3 AAA batteries is still zapping! Katy drew this wonderful Yoda mask, making use of her talent after her artwork was chosen 🙂 🙂

Four out of five of the Hall grandchildren have worn this same pumpkin outfit. This is James 1st Halloween and my 1st Halloween with the 5 Hall grandchildren and thankful for every minute with them. It was a quiet house this afternoon and we were looking all over the house for Sophie, found her asleep in the laundry basket – such precious times for Kodak moments 🙂 🙂 🙂

May & family arrived safe and sound in FL. The light saber has performed its duty well and together with all the saints – may the Force be with us all!
