My little treats

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Happy Halloween everyone! Suddenly it is Fall in our San Diego area, leaves are falling and we awake to ghostly fog and gray days. OR, it gets hot and sunny and we dig out our summer shorts.

Look at this tree ladened with juicy apples. Can you just imagine the dishes you can put on the table using this fall fruit? Apple pie, apple crisp, tossed in a green salad…humm, best pick a few!

It was a big thrill  last week to have two “little treats” come to Julian to visit overnight. Three year old Ellie, and brother Jonas were all smiles at Mountain Valley Ranch in Ramona, CA as we explored the Pumpkin Patch.

Of all the pumpkins, can you guess the the two I would pick?

Jonas fits right in as the cutest pumpkin in the wagon.

A big surprise arrived on October 23, two weeks early and weighing in at a delicate 6 lbs 1 oz. Introducing my newest grandchild, Kylee Marie.

She is Orion and Teresa’s new little sweetheart.

It breaks my heart to have to leave for market, but, it was a blessing to be here to meet
her on her “birthday.”  I look forward to more cuddles on my return.
