Surprise! Trick-or-Treat!

Yep, we're still here.

I had been having computer problems, I got them all taken care of and now the camera is having fits.


(Someday I will get everything under control.  Until then, who knows what will happen...)

We've been having the most beautiful fall ever; cramming in loads of fall fun.  Here's a tiny peak at our latest Halloween event,

Trick-or-treating in a turn-of-the-century village.  We caught up with  friends from the 1800's to the very early 1900's.

Throw on a costume and come with us.

We rode by horse and buggy to the village.

Here we are, my Roman soldier and Little Bo Peep (AKA, Annie my niece)

Down the path,

to our first house. 

Along the way we stopped to look for Little Bo Peep's lost sheep.
(They are cowering in the way back of the barn, I promise)

Met up with a fellow soldier,

And had a "staff meeting."
(look at the hands....)

We saw some friends we usually only see at Christmastime.
And had a delightful night.
Happy Halloween!

Thanks for stopping by.

 Both of you. 

 Hopefully it won't be so long before I am able to post again.  I do have loads of fun things to share.  You really wouldn't believe what we have been up to!

  9. Hi Kate! Welcome back to blogger-land! Like others have said, we've missed you!

    I'm glad to hear that the computer is up and running and hope that the camera gets fixed soon. You're right, it's always something!

    We've been having a great fall as well with lots of fun family activities. I've been thankful for the beautiful weather but it seems to have turned nasty. Whether it will stay remains to be seen.

    Hope to see you around more often!

  10. I am SO SO SO SO SO HAPPY! Kate is back! Let the party begin!!

  11. Kate,
    I am so glad to see you! I was so sad when I heard from you and then you were gone again. I didn't know how to find you ;-( These are adorable pictures. Go get a cheap camera at Target for now! You were sorely missed and just want YOU back here!

  12. Kate I can not tell you how happy I was to find your post on here tonight. Thank goodness your back. Girlfriend (sister) I have missed you something terrible.
    I hope you get everything working and you can enjoy your world of blogging again.
    No telling what you Mn gals have been up to. Can not wait to find out. Don't give up on me coming to see you. If I can ever get back to being me and getting around like I am a young chick instead of a 96 year old woman. Never dreamed that day when I was lying on that floor that 6 months down the rode I would still be regretting that fall.
    These pictures are great. You all know how to have the best fun. Why oh why are we not neighbors.
    Ok honey I will leave room for someone else to welcome you back.
    Come back over and enter my giveaway.
    As always I love you
