That Sunday morning was Reformation Sunday, an important day in the Lutheran church! Three pastors and a future seminarian officiated. Dave is on the far right; Pr. Cooper is second from the left.
The following Monday was actual Reformation Day, also known as Halloween. These two adorable trick-or-treaters dropped by for a treat from Grandma and Grandpa.
This fall has been unusually warm and dry, which I think led to a not very colorful autumn. It's been beautiful in other ways, so I
won't try not to complain.

My birthday was last week and we all gathered at one of my favorite restaurants, Cheddars. All of us, that is, except Hannah, who had a cold and was not feeling very how (as Eeyore puts it). The pictures I took were terrible (bad lighting!), but trust me, we had a good time! Then we went to my daughter's house for cake, ice cream, and presents. Arane was so excited that it was my birthday! :)
Dave and Hannah brought me these lovely flowers. I love fresh flowers. The little vases are a gift from Dave, honest to goodness Belleek. He knows my weakness for fine china! Aren't they darling? I have Four other pieces of Belleek, all with the traditional shamrock design except one, which has a pansy motif~ also very pretty.
There's lots more I could say, but I'll save it for another time. Thanks for visiting!
