Why Gnomes Love Halloween:


because of the imagination, and the dreaming about things you can't really see

because of the creativity and joy of picking out and making a costume

because of the pure and silly fun of dressing up and pretending

because we get to see our neighbors face to face, and actually talk to them

because two gnomes got to see how nice it is to be grateful (and mommy and daddy gnome got to witness our 3 year old saying "thank you" at least 30 times last night)

because of the memories we created as a family

10 friends had a thing or two to say...:

Hey,...can you tell me how to make the file on the side bar to organize my blogs? Like I wanted to do like what you did, recipes under one, family under another etc. I can't figure out how you did that? I know you are busy so when you get a chance...if it is easier to email me then that is fine too, housefrau2@yahoo.com thanx! =o)
