G-daughter arrived at 7am and went back to sleep but only for about 45 minutes today. Hubbie got up with her and got her breakfast while I did chores . G-daughter was not feeling well this morning and wouldn't eat anything.
After hubbie and I had breakfast he played with her while I got weekly laundry started. G-daughter got sleepy about mid morning and went down for an hour nap. While she napped I worked a little downstairs so I wouldn't make any noise to wake her.
She was in a much better mood when she woke up. We went outside on this 81 degree day to swing and play in the sunshine.
We had lunch then after I got the laundry finished we decided we would drive over to Flat Rock to see how long the line to vote early was. G-daughter needed another nap and we knew she would go to sleep as soon as we put her in the car.
The line was very short to our surprise compared to what we have been hearing of about an hour wait time everywhere. We happily took our 5 minute wait and voted.
I told hubbie as scary as this presidential election is anyway it is fitting that we voted on Halloween !
We came home and hubbie watered the cattle while g-daughter and I played out in the sunroom.
She loves acting silly these days !!!

After d-in-love picked her up hubbie and I did chores early for the second night in a row to get ready for another Halloween event with the kids. I get to wear one more Halloween outfit !!!
Josh and daughter have been going to the Hendersonville campus of Biltmore church and they were hosting a Halloween carnival tonight for kids.
Re and Aa are still working so EL and BB went with hubbie and I .

#1 son's family went and Josh and daughter met us there.
There were alot of people there to enjoy all the games and inflatables.

The group .....minus Josh and #1 son
The first thing to do was this big slide.

Our kids are such different ages we decided to all split up . Hubbie and I took BB

 Josh and daughter took EL,

#1 son and d-in-love had g-daughter

 and g-son found his best friend Nicholas .
The inflatables were all to crowded for BB but there were some games he enjoyed playing.

And he definitely wanted to go on the hayride behind this big John Deere tractor.
We heard scary stories as we rode.
Oh my the sky was beautiful !!!!

We didn't ride this train even though BB wanted to as we thought it was being driven way too fast and was making lots of curves and circles unsafely.
He wanted to drive the Gators !!!!
We all had so much fun tonight watching the kids play their hearts out and enjoy themselves so much.
We took BB and EL home to Aa about 8:30 and they should sleep well as tired as they were.
What a beautiful perfect evening for this Halloween fun with another record breaking hot day .
This October has been one for the record books in more ways than one it seems and it looks like November is starting out the same way.
This October has been a busy one for the family with 2 birthdays to celebrate as #1 son turned 35 and g-son broke into double digits with his 10th birthday on the 16th of the month.
A hurricane named Mathew brought the only 1/2 inch of rain we had the entire month and brought devastating flooding to the eastern part of the state.
G-daughter started walking and hasn't stopped moving since around the first of the month.
The weather has been unseasonably warm  with no rain and no frost yet for the season and 4 record hot days.
Our family made what seems to be our monthly bike ride as we all say we should do this more often but it is very hard for all of us to have the time on the same day.
No big news for anybody in particular for the month.
I stayed very busy all month attending all the home volleyball games as well as having a busy market selling month and even volunteering at g-son's school one night for science night. I had to finally give in and go to the doctor with my knee pain. They gave me a cortisone shot and it is much better.
Hubbie and I made a trip to Pickens Flea market but were disappointed with the low number of sellers. We ended the month with trunk or treat at our church on the 30th and a kids carnival at Josh and daughter's church on the 31st which were both really fun for the kids.
October was a month filled with many blessings and I look forward to what my wonderful Heavenly Father has in His plans for me in November.
God Bless and Good Night.

Looks like a fun time for everyone. Cute costume you wore. Our weather for October has been unusually wet and cool with very few nice days. Hubby and I will early vote on Thursday as our local voting place is not "voter friendly" - no parking and the grade school children are very unruly. blessings
