Make-A-List Monday - October 2018

As October comes to an end, it is time for another Make-A-List Monday.  

I have been so lucky (?) to see lots of wildlife on my daily walks.


A fuzzy caterpillar...


























A white squirrel...







This sign of wildlife was not seen on my daily walk, but rather in my backyard.



So sweet to see a mama raccoon and her little one :)

We celebrated my DDIL Heather's birthday this month... 

with a yummy hibachi dinner.

We celebrated my birthday as well...
This is a picture of me with my sweet daughter, Shea.

Kyle, Heather and the boys sent me this beautiful fall arrangement...


My son, JT, and his wife, Kaela, were very busy this month and were unable to get home.
Here they are at a wedding in upstate New York.

JT had a work function at the Philadelphia Zoo.  Unfortunately Mother Nature had other ideas...

We received my daughter's wedding pictures.  I am still planning on doing a wedding post, but until then here is a sneak peek at one of the pictures of the handsome couple.

Now on to my list...
