Since this is the time for Goblins and Bats....
Weird spirits and ghosts and cats
These are the things I wish for you
May the only ghost that comes to stay,
Be the Holy Ghost to guide your way.
May the only spirits you chance to meet..
Be the spirit of love and warm friends sweet.
May the tricks that you are asked to do
Be the tricks of making a friend or two.
And of helping another along the way
To add happiness into their day.
These are the Halloween Wishes just for you....
And may God bless you in all you do!

I used to be green
But now I am brown.
Why do I keep falling
All the way to the ground?
I was happy up in this tree...
Please try to explain
What's happening to me!
My friends are all gone...
I see them below.
It won't be long
'Till they're covered with snow.
I wish it were Spring
It won't be long
'Till Ole Man Winter
Has come and gone.
Then I'll be back with all my friends...
But somehow this falling just never ends!

  I wrote this poem for Ryan when he was two!  I was sitting in the yard and it was raining leaves on my head.   That was in 1998.

I crocheted this frog hat for Lisa.  Her classroom theme is frogs and she is dressing like one for Halloween.  Here's the link for the directions if you ever need a frog hat.

This is what our sky looked like this morning.  Cumulus clouds are puffy clouds that sometimes look like pieces of floating cotton.  The base of each cloud is often flat and may be only 1000 m (330 ft) above the ground.  The top of the cloud has rounded towers.  When the top of the cumulus resembles the head of a cauliflower, it is called cumulus congestus or towering cumulus.  These clouds grow upward, and they can develop into a giant cumulonimbus, which is a thunderstorm cloud.
