The leaves are changing color all over the place

I have been having lots of challenges with my photos - so we shall see what I can transfer here  It is frustrating that I cannot show you what's going on (in pictures).  So - lots of time with the grandchildren, such fun.

A couple of weeks ago we had a great trip to the local aquarium.  We all had a great day.
They are such a great bunch of kids.  They are a pleasure to have around.

CTA had a sewing day when we made baby quilts for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). 

We also made sleep sacks for the babies in the same hospital, but once again, my photos won't transfer over.  I am sorry.  It is so frustrating.

Here's one of the younger grands - just prior to Halloween.  You may notice the fake braid and the blue gloves - all part of the Elsa costume.  The same as half of the 4 year olds around the world, who think this is just the perfect outfit.  Isn't Disney successful!

Life is good and busy and perhaps I can get this photo issue resolved.

We got a tree from the city - a long and convoluted process - and finally got that planted.  We did discover what a dreadful layer of clay we have about 10 inches below the surface.  But with a pick managed to break it up.  Hope we were able to loosen the soil enough that our little Elm tree can grow.  [Who knows where the pictures went.]

Too frustrating.  Happy fall, everyone.
