Happy Trick Or Treat! Here at StoneGable, we don't have many trick-or-treater. So sad!
Because we live in the middle of corn fields and have no close neighbors, we get very few costumed kids excited for candy!

Our country is in trouble! Not only because of the shutdown or the impending raising of the debt limit... again... or the childish, abhorrent behavior of most of our leaders.
Our country, the country I love, is sick!
Our country has fallen into grave and serious sin!
Most of us, if we would search the depth of our souls, know it! It stares us in the face from the tv set and the computer every day! Our ears are filled with it... just walk down the hall of almost any high school or listen to what is playing on ipods!
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Is 5:20
This is not a political or social commentary today. I try to stay away from thing like that in my blog.
Today I am calling for everyone who reads this post to prayer. Serious and authentic prayer for our beloved country...
I know, a pox on my pumpkin! I have never liked the idea of scary and other-world things and celebrating death! And I am a little upset with Halloween for taking so much attention away from Thanksgiving!
But... here's the good news...
I do love kids dressed in fun costumes and giving out candy and cats and bats and pumpkins. So I created these fun NO-SEW HALLOWEEN NAPKINS with the tamer side of Halloween in mind...
Every bone in my body aches today! But, it's only to remind me that yesterday we had a fabulous family get together!
Lots of family... the whole family!
Lots of cooking... and hugging... and eating ... and watching football (GO EAGLES!)...and talking... and blowing out birthday candles...and cake eating... and sticky fingers everywhere... and Bobby giving the kiddos tractor rides around the yard... and a family football game.. and presents... and lots of laughter... and tons and tons of clean up.
The only thing that was missing was pictures! How could I? Next time there will be lots and lots of pictures!!!
Today I'm taking Aleve... and finding my house... and doing stretching exercise... and basking in the glorious memory of a special family time! SIGH!
This week I'm wishing you happy family times and lots of great memories!
Make this week count!
