And a shot of my two munchkins before Unka Brian, Aunt Faith and lil Haley whisked them off to the square Saturday for their trick or treating:
Have a Spooktacular day, y'all!

MM and I were sitting upstairs in our office talking and enjoying our morning coffee when I noticed a strange look on his face. What???
I looked out the window where he had been looking and saw a fox (not this one—internet image) running down our driveway toward the house. Two kitties were outside! I flew down the steps to go outside and yell at the critter to go away, but MM called down mid-run that the fox had already gone toward the woods. I went out and yelled anyway. It made ME feel better. I don’t want him/her near the house. Period. I’m territorial. This is OUR space. YOUR space is in the woods. Stay!
Scared. I was. Kitties are back inside (32 was not to their liking). Barkely is running around sniffing. Good dog. Whew. Good critters accounted for…check.
All is well.
Life is never dull in Mayberry. I’ll settle for a little dull right now.
Have yourselves a ginger peachy, fox-free Friday!
It is tradition in Amy and Jason’s household that the birthday person gets breakfast in bed on their birthday. Alex got a candle in a special treat.
He’s a happy camper.
My Mother always called us (too early) to sing Happy Birthday, so Grumps and I (of course) called Alex and sang to him (condensed version) before he left for school. Thankfully, it is the love that is conveyed, not the great singing voices.
With five kids in my birth family, I truly don’t remember any birthday celebrations for any of us…no parties, that is for sure. I am sure there must have been cake, because Mother was a good baker. And with my birthday being a few days before Christmas, guess what………no birthday presents in my past either!
It seems that parties for small kids can be “over the top” these days, and I am not for that, but I do want each child to feel special on their, well, special day.
That’s how we roll.
Do you have a special birthday tradition?
Grab a donut while you are thinking…if there are any left. Hurry!
Life is good in Mayberry today, filled with lots of love for birthday boy Alex. Lucky boy!
