I am so glad you are back -- safe and sound. I am also glad you returned
in time to enjoy what appears to be a fun Halloween night at the Smith house. The girls look awesome! Abbey looked cute and scary and Tessa looked positively glamorous! Surprised that Sam didn't go, but we had a
similar situation here.

We drove to WalMart late in the afternoon yesterday and on the way home we asked Mitchell if he was ready to go Trick or Treating. He repeatedly said no. When we pulled onto our street, Zanny and I got all excited because there was a trick or treater working our neighborhood. We
started working on Mitchell to get him enthuised about it but we got no response. When we turned around to see what he was doing, we found him sound asleep! He stayed asleep until about 8:30. We decided to visit a few houses in spite of the late start. He thought it was fun but pretty scary to be outside in the dark. Every little noise and he would nervously ask, "What was that???"

By the way, one of the houses gave him two regular-sized packages of Hall's cough drops. Is that weird or what? The family is from Cuba, perhaps that is a tradition in Cuba. :-)

We may go to the beach today, since we didn't make it yesterday. And I may try to vote this afternoon since tomorrow is pretty busy with medical stuff. I wish I knew for sure who to vote for!

Have a great day. Catch up on your rest and give us a call sometime to
tell us all about your experiences in Belgium!

Love to all,
Gramma Judy


Glad to hear that Rob is back from the land of Flemish speakers. I'm anxious to hear how he liked the country.

We had a full day yesterday - Lisa and I couldn't sleep on the one night of the year that there's bonus sleep so we were up at 4:30 working on the house. Mom and Dad came up and gave us a huge hand with painting downstairs - thanks again - and things are starting to take shape. Lisa got bit by a spider and has a 3" hematomato as a temporary tatoo to show for it. I'm just hoping she's not sewing a blue and red costume or something when I get home tonight.....

Vriendelijke groeten,


Grampa Smith

Glad you have returned from that camera stealing non-English speaking furrin country. Your lead off joke always gets a laugh whenever I hear it. I hope all is well. Did not see the Bronco game but it must have been bad. Hawks continue to win but a tough three weeks coming up.

Glad you are back.
Love to All!

Hello to all, Glad to hear Rob is home safe and sound, and Halloween was a success. We forgot to draw the names for Christmas yesterday even though I had them all written out in envelopes. Its our pattern to forget things now, and no its not Alzheimers, so don't worry. I got to show a whole bunch of wedding pictures at Monday Morning Group, and every one Thanked me for bringing them. Its allways fun to show off the family to my friends. Love Grandma Delores
