Grandma Judy

Grandma Judy came to visit us. She is fairing very well for 100 and 1/2 yrs old.


Though these pictures were taken after the hard work of trick-or-treating I think It captures the effort of the holiday well, even if it misses the anticipation. Grady carved his pumpkin the white one all by himself. Cora ate candy in the bike trailer before I got home and then was sick for a week... but I couldn't have pried it out of her grasp anyway.

G-man mentioned he wanted a dog again. :-(

I just don't know if we are ready for it. I'm hoping I can delay a while. There has been a hording rescue near here involving 31 living disheveled dogs and 10 dead ones. Hound mixes. I just don't know what to think but Grady pointed to a picture of a hound the other day and said it reminded him he wanted one.

Grady was Elmo for Halloween, and I dressed Cora as a Doctor/Surgeon. Cora LOVED Trick or Treating, and ate a Kit Kat through the wrapper while in the bike trailer before I could confiscate some things and inspect anything. As far as her candy collecting went, she was in awe and possessive from the first little packages put in her bucket. I had to take her because Big Brother is into it. Luckily she sat a good bit of it out while sucking on wrappers.

Today both kids are running fevers and Cora has a sick tummy. UGH.
