House Guests

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

We had a lot of fun this month.  Weather was nice mostly for Fall.  We went to Chillicothe to visit with Mom and Dad after they came backbrody isabelfrom their trip.  Then the next week was celebrating Martin’s birthday up north this all the families.  Brett and Martin made it to our place late on Friday and the boys had a wonderful time running around before bedtime.  Hard to believe is turned 6 already.  We also made it to Boo at the Zoo with Isabel.  The next week I worked a consignment sale all week long after working my normal job.  Then we headed to Chillicothe for Dad’s birthday and made a trip over to local fruit farm for some apples.  I also was able to do a lot of canning and freezing of food this year.  I canned peppers, apple pie filling, froze pumpkin, butternut squash, and apple sauce.  Also Kate, Brody, and Joselyn moved out after their stay with us.  Brody moved with Brett and Martin in Virginia and Kate and Joselyn went back to their home here.  Then at the end of the month due to weather Trick or Treat was moved to November 2nd.

We started the month out doing some cleaning in the house while Mom and Dad took Isabel to the Franklin Conservatory.  Then for the first week while we were off work we went to the Zoo, The Works, Slate Historical Farm, and playing in the park.  I got things ready for another consignment sale this month.  We finished cleaning the house up before our guests arrived.  Kate, Brody, and Joselyn moved in with us on the 17th for six weeks while they get things settled here in Ohio before going back to Virginia.  We sent Soda to stay with Mom and Dad while everyone moved in the first week and picked her up the following weekend.  We went to Chillicothe for a surprise retirement Party for Rev. Jim Grove after being part of the church and community for 41 years.  I ended the month going to a party for a friend.  It was a potluck (I made loaded tater Ta Tas) and it was a good time out before she went in for a surgery the following week.  We are all doing well and adjusting to the extra family at home.

God Bless,

Rebecca, Tracy, Isabel, and Soda
