The last 13 days of October, for which I have photographs to share, were all about family.
We spent the night of Saturday, October 19, in the Pittsburgh area. We visited with Bob’s cousin, Chris, and his family that evening. Amy made dinner. The main entree was honey mustard chicken accompanied by broccoli, whole grain rice, and salad. For dessert we had a choice of a mini croissant with either white or chocolate kisses inside or apple turnovers that we brought with us. I ate a mini croissant. After dinner, I took several pictures of Chris and his family.
I put together a collage of my favorite photographs.
Chris, Amy and their son, David, will be moving to Italy early next year for 3 year tour of duty. Although Chris and family will be far away, I am happy that they will have the opportunity for travel during their 3-year stay. I look back fondly on my 3 years in Germany, while I was in the Army. I saw so much of Europe, while I lived there.
On Sunday, October 20, we visited with my brother and some members of his family. We enjoyed lunch at Jim’s house. The main entree was stuffed shells accompanied by Italian bread. For dessert we had banana bread with chocolate chips. Lunch was delicious! After dinner, I took several pictures of Jim, Judy, Emily and Elise. I even got some pictures that included Bob and me, which either Emily or Judy took with my camera.

I LOVE this collage of Bob, Emily, Elise and me!
I printed the collage; it is framed and sitting on top of a cabinet in our living room.
Thank you Chris and Amy and Jim, Judy and Emily for delicious meals and good conversations. Thank you, too, for preserving memories via photographs!
We enjoyed family time with Stacey, Mike, Harper and June in October as well. All four of them dropped by on Halloween.
Harper was dressed as a cat; June was dressed as a horse.

Stacey left for home before Mike and the girls. I wish she had stayed just a little bit longer. I love this photograph of Mike, the girls, their cousin Maddi and their Aunt Jen. I would have loved it even more, if Stacey was in the picture!
