Hey Yall! So glad Yall could join Me today on Our Front Porch! This new format is not what I am accustom to so Yall please bare with me. I have really missed writing to Yall these past couple of weeks. Change is something that I am not crazy about but as We all know sometimes its for the better and I am so hoping that this will be one of those situations.
Hope Your Halloween Holiday was fun. This was the very first Halloween in 23 years that We did not go trick or treating. Our youngest Gracie is 11 and she informed me that she was just too old to go but She and Jake wanted to dress up and hand out Candy at the Ranch, so that’s what We All did. We had a great time carving the pumpkin and putting up the seeds for Our pumpkin patch next year. At the Ranch, We don’t waste anything, so of course We couldn’t throw out all those beautiful pumpkin seeds!
Now its time to turn Our attention towards Thanksgiving! This is one of Jake’s favorite holidays, one of mine too. In Our Family, some of Our best memories come from around the kitchen table preparing the Thanksgiving meal. Its always a time of fun stories, good conversations and family togetherness. I remember My Momma’s last Thanksgiving before she past away. Me, Sheila, Taylor, Jake and Grace helped her demolish a whole pan of brownies while we laughed and cooked. We always watch the Macy’s parade too. We just can’t miss seeing Snoopy and Scooby. Speaking of Snoopy Yall. I have a huge confession….I am still a kid, at least on the inside! lol McDonalds has all those wonderful Charlie Brown toys from the new movie in their happy meals now. And I wanted them, so Shawn went and bought Me all twelve! lol (He is just so sweet). I have them all displayed on one of the mantles at the Ranch! Just love them! Now Jake and I are going to do a Charlie Brown Christmas tree to go with them at Christmas.
Well, I think I am going to close this for now. I hope Yall enjoyed Your time on the Front Porch today. I am thinking about making Our visits bi-weekly instead of once a week. Maybe I will learn this new program after all….God is good! Really enjoyed Our visit today!
