Last Thursday, all ten of us left the house and headed on over to the nursing home for Fulton's first grandma visit ever and trick-or-treating up and down the halls to the residents. This was the highlight of our Halloween this year - no carving pumpkins, no baking pumpkin seeds, no All Saints day party or costumes or liturgical meal/tea. We have a sweet baby boy who is keeping us busy with his feedings and anything else we can work in is an extra blessing! Thankfully, the kids have been so sweet and understanding and see the value of welcoming a beautiful blessing from God instead of carrying out all our other regular traditions this time of year. So, on the top of our list was going to see grandma - my only living grandparent right now and it makes her night (or week!) when she gets visitors. Not to mention the joy we are filled with visiting her and seeing that beautiful smile on her face. And, how blessed she was to have 5 granddaughters and 16 great-grandchildren there that night!!
