Time for Wednesday Hodgepodge. Where Joyce asks the questions for us to answer. Join in the fun HERE.
1. In two or three sentences describe yourself to someone who has never met you.
I’m the daughter of Russian Immigrants and was raised in the Los Angeles area with my seven siblings. God chose to save me from my sins through Jesus Christ, His Son, who is my Lord and Savior when I repented in 1963. Happily married to Dear for 48 years where in the course of those years we have enjoyed our three children, their spouses and our two grandchildren, the cherries on the top.
2. Will you celebrate Halloween this year, and if so tell us how?
We will actually be going to a Reformation Conference Halloween weekend in Sandpoint, Idaho. On Halloween Monday also known as Reformation Day we will enjoy our grandchildren coming over and trick or treating at our door. They will be the only trick or treaters since living in the country on dark country roads we don’t have the usual city trick or treaters.
Let’s play this or that-chocolate candy or fruity candy?
Pumpkin seeds or pumpkin pie?
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Halloween party or scary movie?
Hay ride or corn maze?
We have a great corn maze here in Colville and the majority of our family enjoyed it together this past Saturday.
Carve a pumpkin or paint a pumpkin?
Carve a pumpkin.
3. What’s something that scared you when you were young? Are you still afraid?
The movie King Kong. If I watched it today I’d probably laugh at the animation.
4. Your favorite soothing drink?
Hendrick’s with cucumber and Fever tree elderflower tonic.
5. Are you thinking about Christmas yet?
Yes because we are planning a family trip in January which caused discussion about Christmas and reminding ourselves that we would not do ‘present overload’ and save our money for the trip.
Does this make you feel happy or stressed?
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Not only is Ember the new puppy growing fast but our dear Grands are, too!

Beautiful photos of your family! Happy Halloween to you all! Take care, enjoy your day!
I love that your family has so much time together. How blessed you all are to be so close. The Reformation Conference sounds wonderful and that explains your statement that God chose you for salvation. Enjoy those adorable grands.
Libby, very insightful of you. We have been leaning more reformed these days. Thank you for stopping by today.
…Halloween isn’t a celebration for me.
Your family photo is awesome!
Thanks for the tidbits you share as I so enjoy getting to know you.
As always I love your lovely family photos. B x
I enjoyed your family photos, Ellen. Sounds like your Autumn festivities are fun times for everyone.
Lovely photos as always and yes they sure are growing fast.
We don’t get any trick or treaters.
I’m not a big fan of Halloween anyway!
Random thoughts always go back to God and family, the great blessings of our lives. Your family is so beautiful.
I love the idea of a family trip and hope we can do that on a regular basis in a few years. Right now it’s baby palooza lol. Not complaining!! Our neighborhood does a trunk or treat at the clubhouse because the driveways are long and there are not a lot of kids. We’ll be in my daughter’s neighborhood and she said they’ll have a couple of hundred-yowza!
Love that first family photo! And the ones of the grands at the end — they are so adorable!
Some of our family enjoyed a corn maze when we were all together in September. And an extended family member up in Maine works at a farm that has a huge themed corn maze every year. We keep thinking we are going to get up there with some of the grands and visit. Maybe next year!
I enjoyed your answers and your photos are awesome. A family trip sounds fun!
Gotta love the expressions on the pumpkin carving photo!
