~ Happy Halloween ~

Photobucket
I pulled up to my sisters tonight to see the kids before they went out trick or treating. You know I had to try and get pictures. One handed or not I had to have some shots of them all dressed up. Anyway, this was the view from her backyard. Gorgeous! Vibrant colors that I didn't even come close to capturing. As I snapped the shot I could think nothing but of how this must be a sign for better days to come. A year ago today is when I started feeling ill. Within days I had triple by-pass and there was the start of my issues.
I'm doing great, trust me. Before my fall I was up and at 'em. Today I'm in good shape and starting to get the use of my left arm back. The Dr. took off the brace on Wednesday with strict instructions to lift nothing more then a pencil. I'm behaving, trust me. Today with the cold and damp air it ached like a toothache, but I know I'm definitely getting better.
So, this rainbow.. my sign.....

Just too freaking cute if you ask me... wish it was clearer.. one handed sucks!

Another... good measure.. ya know?

So all in all the day was good... I'm good. I'm not around like I use to be... I'm trying. I'm absolutely beat by the time I get home from work. I do hope everyone is good and had a wonderful Halloween...

The kiddo's are growing up so fast. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. I love "Little Diva's" wig it reminds me of Elvira on a show we used to watch late at night. Our grandson had a knife last night sorta like Gage's except his had red stuff inside the blade that looked like blood. I love seeing all the kids dressed up in their costumes and I loved Halloween when I was a kid.

Loved the costumes and the pictures. Even one handed, you take better photos than I do! LOL

And yes, a rainbow is a very positive sign. I'm convince it was meant just for you.

I really do believe the good Lord sends a rainbow into our lives when we need a special sign. What a wonderful day for it to happen for you! You are a very determined woman, and it does sound like you have turned the corner, and all good is waiting ahead! You will make it, Donna -- so happy for you.

Ok these kids grew up to fast. Love the pics. Check out Gage's eyes even with a mask he's playing the part. I often wonder why people smile to when they where a mask for pics. Bug is so cute in her diva!
