this little show stopper has given me so much pleasure. The last bud has now opened, and I have no idea how long the blooms will last. What a little miracle.
The Great Pumpkin did not come this year to our house (no sincere pumpkin patch, actually no pumpkin patch at all.) but I did get to share my favorite Halloween tradition with my babygrand this weekend. Poor Mommy has a bad ear infection and had to go to the Doctor. Penny was sooo upset. So Daddy called Grandma. We played together long distance over the ipad. First with toys and then by watching (for Penny's first time) It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. Penny loved the part when Linus rolls with the pumpkin and of course all of the parts with Snoopy. By the time Linus gets put to bed, Mommy was home, and we got to share the funniest parts again, again! My girls, I cannot wait to have them close, Daddy too!
Speaking of being close, we were called last night by Jon and Charlotte. They bought a portable dishwasher, the dream of every apartment dweller, from someone moving on Craig's List. When it came time to get it into the car, it was too big. Jon called...So how's it going? What cha doing? ...This is what we're here for, we are like Batman and Robin just waiting for the Bat signal. ;-) Off we went in the Batmobile, aka known as Grandpa's Big Blue Truck and headed for the city. We got to the kids within the hour. The problem was solved, and we were back in our cozy chairs before the news. Oh to have all the kids close by...not only for us, but for each other.
So that was our weekend. If you read to this point, thanks so much for stopping by. ;-)
Enjoy this beautiful day.
