October Randomness

Just a few random photos.

Here's my fall table center, complete with fresh roses from my front bush.  Aren't they gorgeous?!

Banana Girl wanted to cuddle with someone as she fell asleep.  Princess M was happy to oblige.  It just warms my heart when they care for and love each other.  

On the pet front, we finally sold the last puppy.  Horray!  
Bad news is that Princess M's goldfish that she got from the family fun fair, only 2 day ago, died today.  We've been warning her since she first got it that goldfish die easily, but she was still pretty broken up.  I walked in the room and she tells me, "Mom, I've been praying to Heavenly Father that my fish will come alive again."  And then she burst into tears.  What do you say to that?  Sometimes the answer is just "No."  I may have to go buy a goldfish sometime with her this week.  

We did, however, brighten up the day with a little toesie painting.   
Our happy fall toesies look like gilded Reeces Pieces.  They're great!

We love all the new updated pictures on your blog. The girls have grown so much since we last saw them. We can't wait to see them again and meet little mouse. The hardest part of a mission is not seeing grandkids. Wish you all lived closer so we could have a quick visit during shut-down. See you in March.

We recently lost a fish too, and it's HARD to explain to children why everything doesn't work out the way they want.
BUT, at least you got to paint those sweet toesies, what fun!!
