Happy Halloween

Dorothy had a wonderful time frolicking through the fall leaves with Toto.

On the look out for a Twister.

Nate decided to come along to the ward Trunk or Treat. He and Grace had a ball! She was estatic about carrying around her little basket and having people give her candy. She thought it was the greatest thing in the world!

And I was the Lady in Red.

Great Grandpa Woods

Look at these hands!

These are hands that have been through a lot in the last few years. Electrocution, then slicing through the palm and wrists, skin graphs and physical therapy and now here they are holding two little handsThis is Ben Crosby Woods.
Great-Grandpa to these two goofy kids.
Grandpa to me.
I adore this man. He has always been somebody that I have looked up to and admired. When I was little he would pull me up into his arms and sing to me. "I'll be down to pick you up in a dump truck honey!" He would also take my hands and rub them up and down the whiskers on his face. {he did both of these things last time I saw him and I of course laughed and laughed} He always smells like the stuff he puts in his hair, "Groom and Clean" and sometimes Eternity for Men. He loves my Granny so much and adores his children whether they are his by flesh or marriage. He is one of the hardest workers I know. He loves his family and is one of the greatest men in the world. I love my Grandpa and want him to know how grateful I am for all he does for this family. He's a good man and I hope I can find someone like him one day.
I Love You

We are finally recovering from our illnesses. Grace had a nasty case of swine flu which she so kindly shared with me, and her swine flu turned into pneumonia!!! It has been a very LONG 10 days, I am still not quite up to par but Grace is doing SO much better. We actually got out of the house yesterday to play in the vibrant fall colors that have surrounded us. I LOVE fall.

When Pigs Fly

<--------- Now I don't think this is what Grace did but the results are pretty much the same.

The Swine Flu has come to my house and oooh boy it has hit with full force.

Poor Grace has been running a fever since Saturday night and today she started coughing and hacking. I had been fine up until this afternoon and now I'm not feeling so great.

I have a doctors note to excuse me from class. Grace and I are going to do some serious Mother daughter veggin' out on the couch time. We have been told to STAY HOME for @ LEAST 5 DAYS!!!

Stick Straight

I straightened Grace's hair today and I think it made her look so much older. Anna came over and immediately told me how much she did NOT like it straight... I'm afraid I have to agree with her it makes her look too grown up. I am amazed everyday how big my little girl is getting. Sheesh!

Grace got into a bag of chocolates my visiting teacher brought me and she ENJOYED them emensely.
