Happy Friday...Fall...and Friday finds...

"I'd rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion." -Henry David Thoreau

One of our favorite things to do for fall is visit our local Grave's Farm with our grandkids.  This year they both went through the Corn Maze three times.  Twice going from the entrance to the exit, then once from the exit to the entrance.  Leave it to kids to be creative.  I anticipated them taking about 30 minutes to find their way through the maze...when Warren and I took us a long time!  It took them only 15 minutes.  They each got to pick their own pumpkin to take home for decoration.

Pumpkins everywhere at Grave's farm!

Last night my neighbor, Diane, and I went to a painting class.  Note: neither one of us are very good painters artistically, but we thought it would be fun.  There were about 20 people in the class, and I was very grateful when the instructor showed us what to do, then we did it.  Then she went on to the next step until we had our paintings done.  We painted gourds of all varieties.  Okay...these are not masterpieces, but they were fun.  We had great laughs at various objects in the paintings.

From pumpkins, I moved to apples.  Anyone who knows me, knows I love favorite is a Honeycrisp.  I found some at Wal-Mart, and decided to relax with my cup of tea, and apple.  I was in heaven.

Honey Crisp Apples, and Licorice spice tea...two of my favorites

Today, has been fun.  The girls in Warren's office dressed up as Minions from the movie "Despicable Me."  They wanted me to talk Warren into being Gru, which he did.  We went several places to find a "bald cap", but were unsuccessful finding one.  He refused to shave his head and beard. We did find a sweater, and scarf.  The office gang looked so cute.
The cat (bottom right) is checking out Gru.

I added black brow marker to his eyebrows.  I think he looks pretty "despicable."

The minions...

Photos came in from the other members of our family sharing their costumes with us.  They are all precious.

Zach's girls...

Luke's boys...Luke decorated their wagon like a fire we have the fireman, and the Dalmatian firedog.

Could this be a fire call?

Maybe so...

Ready to go...

Not to forget our grand dog...who will be dressed in a Bronco outfit.  Isn't the fall beautiful here?

Finally, our super heroes from Texas.  Flash Gordan (friend of Ryan) , Captain America (tall guy...Ryan DeFranco), the Hulk (Jack), and little Captain America (Luke).  All heroes to us.  

Happy Friday, fall, and what finds I had for today.  I am linking this up to Kim Klassen's Friday finds.  Go give her website a look, and visit all the links.

A rich and full life by any measure. Those sweet little trick-or-treaters brought a smile to my face!
