Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Saturday Snapshot

 Saturday Snapshot is hosted by At Home with Books. To participate in this meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.
Halloween was a strange holiday this year. Because of Superstorm Sandy, trick-or-treating in our town was moved to the weekend as a precaution. In the meantime my grandkids visited my grandmother at her assisted living facility and got a ton of candy and oohs and ahhs over how cute they looked. (They love going there and know how to work the crowds already! Grandma likes showing them off too.) There was also a party at Kmart for the kids and my granddaughter got to take her costume to preschool. It was a whole week of Halloween that kept dribbling on. Since they had so many occasions to dress up they wore different costumes. My daughter-in-law is a clever girl who saves old costumes and picks up new ones at terrific sales. They will always have plenty of supplies for playing dress up!

Checking out the candy stash. I love how the clothes went flying off first thing!


  1. I trying to work it out. Does that mean that your grandkids have a great, great, grandma? Love the picture of her in the hat holding Baby Woody.

    1. Yes, she is my grandmother (age 94!) and their great-great grandmother. We now have 5 generations in our family!

  2. They are so cute! Lovely photos!

  3. LOVE the matching little skeletons! My boys (now 14 and 18) have always loved dressing up - we still have a huge "costume box" in the basement.

    I;m sure they enjoyed the extended Halloween!

    P.S. I love the quote below your title - I made my mom a birthday card using that a few years ago - totally describes her to a T!

  4. So cute; I use to love digging through all the candy with my kids:)

  5. Oh, what fun Halloween is! Such cuties!

  6. Love the Little Mermaid... five generations is quite something. My Snapshot is at

  7. How adorable. Your visit to your grandmother's must have cheered the crowd so much.

  8. Love it! Gage went to a library Halloween party too. It's a fun time of year for kids activities.

  9. Your grandkids are adorable. The baby in the Woody outfit is just too cute for words. I can see why your grandmother loves showing them off.

  10. How wonderful that your grands have a great-great! And I bet they sure gave a lot of joy at the home.
