Keeping the Home Fires Burning in October

It's hard to believe that it's already been three weeks since our newest grandson, Caleb, was born.  I've put a lot of miles on my car since then just going to see him!  During that time Hubby came home to see his new grandson.  However, I kept him busy with other things too.
The day after he arrived back in Arizona our community had a huge garage sale at one of the rec centers.  We packed up our "treasures" before dawn and set up in our designated parking space to peddle our wares.  Hubby stood watch while I did some shopping.
There were lots of other people with things to sell.  We did pretty well but a lot of our profit was spent on something I just couldn't pass up.
I remember sitting at a school desk like this one so I had to have it.  I still haven't decided where it will permanently reside.
Hubby finally made it over to see Caleb and enjoyed every minute with him until time to head back to Florida for a little while longer.
Shortly after he left, we celebrated a birthday with Caleb's big brother, Joshua.
Joshua helped make his own cake - orange - his favorite color.
Then it was time for Halloween.  Joshua went to school dressed as Superman - after his Mom talked him out of wearing his suit and tie and going as "Church Guy."
Caleb didn't need to dress up!
Then I was off to trick or treat with our oldest grandson, Jacob.  He dressed as Thor and declared that he was not afraid of anything!
Even though he wasn't afraid of anything he still had his Dad to protect him.
Now we're gearing up for Thanksgiving and Hubby's return from Florida - at least for a week.  We're spending the day thanking God in our 5th wheel at yet another campground.  This time we'll be joined by our daughter, son-in-law and "Thor."  I guess we haven't been camping enough!


  1. Hi Candy, What joy to have a new little grandson and to have your man home! Your weather looks incredible; we are bracing for snow this weekend. Our newest grand is also a little boy-he is now 6 weeks old, how the days fly by.
    Sending hugs to you tonight.

  2. Pictures of the relics, not including Rich and baby, of course, are neat. It is hard to believe those are items from our "past." Lots of memories involved with those phones and desks. It is so great to have you back at COTG for a while. Ah, those three grandsons--precious indeed, and how awesome to see Jacob active and healthy. Living life without regret is part of our privilege as children of the King of Kings! Be blessed, Sandy
