October was busy and fun. I made pickles for the first time ever. My parents brought home bushels of cucumbers from the ranch and I didn't know what else to do with them. They turned out great! I gave most of them away but our family enjoyed lots of them.
Collin was on a school trip the whole week of Fall Break. He want to Northern California and had a great time. They kept very busy and saw lots of stuff. When I read through the itinerary I was really wishing I had been a chaperone!
So, Mary and Jack and I try to keep from getting bored while Collin was gone. We went on bike rides and played games, and they had friends over. It was pretty low key.
I celebrated my birthday. Yippee. Another year older. You don't need to know how old.
My mom turned 70 so we planned a great surprised party and had it at our house. She was COMPLETELY surprised. It was great!
For Halloween, Jack dressed a ninja, and Mary dressed as a "Pompeii Seer" (from an episode of "Dr. Who".... she is s huge fan).
