New start....again

Don't know what I to mess up my website, but it just would not load... so we delete that account and try to make it on another... I hope this site works better and does mess up on me.

It has been very windy one day here and that snowy with rain mixed the next... I think winter has come it is very cold here... not much fun. I wanted to plant some bulbs, but I don't think that is going to happen, the weather is just not cooperating.

Halloween is coming, and it is time to spend some fun with the family... couple Saturdays ago we when to the Fall Fair at Wilkerson Farms It was a lot fun with my grandsons... they had fun riding the rides, eating cotton candy and picking out a pumpkin...

Look at those funny painted faces, yup, I think that they are ready for Halloween!

They really are cute little pumpkins, I love my grandsons.

The other thing that we did so far this month for Halloween is go to Hogle Zoo and see the BooLights it was awesome fun... tho' it did get a bit cold after the sun went down...

Ooooh look at the pretty lights....

Look out!! there's a dragon behind you.... hope it doesn't eat my family!

My hubby and girls... of course they would be standing by a chocolate bar.... hahaha... they love chocolate!

Whoooo.... it is a werewolf.... run for your lives.....

Yup, we had a lot of fun at the zoo. Plan on going and seeing the Christmas lights later on this year. I think it will be lots of fun.
