Hello, sweet friends! These are my little grandchildren goblins from this past Halloween. They are just like me. They love to dress up in costumes, trick or treat and have all kinds of Halloween fun!
Jake (70's disco guy) is my oldest grandchild. He and I have been "partners" for quite a few years now. This great guy is on the swim team and plays the bassoon in his school's band.
Grace ( my flower child) is dressed in the era when I was a teenager, the 60's. This sweet and beautiful girl goes to dance practice every week and loves to read. When the grandchildren all come over, she always gets one of her favorite books from my shelf and reads to the other children.
Luke (Darth Vader) is my "wheels" man. This happy boy loves anything that runs on wheels: cars, trucks, trains, motorcycles. He is like my dad, our Poppie. Poppie always went to our local automobile dealer every year about this time to check out the new cars for the upcoming year.
Ally (pink princess) is my little actress. This precious one loves to perform, dance and sing. She is always changing into various costumes from her costume trunk. When the grandkids all come to spend the night with me, Ally and Grace love to play "dance recital" with Grace as the dance instructor teaching Ally a dance routine. Then Ally comes out and performs it for us while we applaud enthusiastically.
Maggie (Miss Ladybug) is very full of life and always very, very busy! This cutie pie loves the computer. Her favorite site is starfall.com. She knows all the songs by heart and sings them wholeheartedly!
Henna Rose (Hershey's Kiss) is my youngest. This baby doll is just starting to walk. Her favorite thing to do is make us all laugh. If she can entertain us and make us laugh, then she is very happy.
My sister, Aunt Myra, is an excellent seamstress. She made Henna's Hershey Kiss costume and Ally's pink princess costume as presents for their birthday. She did a beautiful job, too.
I am so thankful for my grandchildren. They bring such joy to my life. I am wishing for each one of you much joy and happiness as you celebrate with your family and friends during this wonderful season of Thanksgiving.
