Happy Halloween!

It’s been a good week. I have enjoyed being home and helping Steve this week. He’s making good progress, and we are thinking he will go back to work in a few weeks, hopefully on Monday, November 24. He has a follow-up appointment with the surgeon on Monday the 17th, so we’ll know more then.

I’ve been able to get some rest this week, which is good! I couldn’t have imagined having to go back to work this week. But I’m looking forward to getting back on Monday. By then Steve will be able to do a lot more for himself, so it will be good for him as well, to help him get back on his feet.

We’re feeling very grateful that things turned out the way they did. The outcome could have been so much different, I know, and we are so fortunate.

Tonight is Halloween and I’ve bought some candy for trick-or-treaters. We usually get a fair amount from the neighborhood. There are several families around with young children. It varies from year to year, but last year we had a good number. Hope I have enough candy!

Happy Halloween girl,
I'm so glad Steve is doing so well. I really thought it would take longer for him to be up and about, so he is doing very well.
I hope you get to see lots of cute little guys and not so many of the great big ones.
So far we've had just a few and none in the last hour, so I'm guessing it's all over with.
The elementary schools had carnivals and the high schools had football games of course.
Mom and I hit the store about 4 and the crowds were out in record number picking up last minute party and trick or treater supplies.
Have a great weekend and a happy Halloween

Hey Gary and Vikki --

Hope you guys had a good, spooky Halloween. We didn't have too many kiddos; not as many as years past. But it was fun to see them in their costumes!
