Fall pictures, Birthday and a Surprise

Hello everyone.  I hope you have all had a wonderful week.  Ours has been nice but a little hectic.   I took this picture last week.  There are still a few trees left with pretty colors on them.  

So pretty!

One of the things we did this week was celebrate my beautiful Grace’s 18th birthday.  Wow!  The Horns surprised her by making this cake.

So cute!

Grace has been busy working on this.  She is drawing all the Pokemon characters from memory.  She has another page to do.  I think she said she will be drawing 150 of them.

She has also been practicing with her watercolor pencils.  

Julie and I made two trips to college this week.  She had to do some of her work on one of their computers.  She also scheduled her classes for next semester while she was there. 

One of Julie’s favorite places to eat is IHOP.   She treated us both to lunch there on one of our days out.  

Since our trip to the tea house, I have been wanting to try my hand at making scones and the Devonshire cream they served.  I made these yesterday.  They were really good and definitely worth making again.  

Now for the surprise part of this post.  The other day, the girls and I were putting away some flower pots for the winter.  Julie carried them out to the building.  She was setting the pots down when she caught movement out of the corner of her eye.  This is what it was.

Now I think in all my years of living in the country and all the possums (yes if you live here they are called possums not opossums) I have killed this has to be the biggest one.  He was huge.  

I will leave you with much more pleasant pictures.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
