Had a great time geocaching in Dwight, Illinois while Dave attended the board meeting of the U.S.A. plowing organization. He is the president. I found 6 caches and couldn't fine 1...I have found a total of 543 caches. It was a beautiful day ~ sunny and 52 degrees. Now I have the bug again and ready to go find some caches in my area here in Iowa.
On Saturday after the meeting we went to see my son, Rich . He lives in Barrington, Illinois.. It was so good to see John, Kelly and Emily. Kelly told me at church the next day she was going to be baptized.. Oh, I was so excited for her. They go to Willow Creek Community Church.. It's a really big church and I always enjoy going to church here.. I forgot my good camera at home so I used my cell phone camera. Can't see her picture very well on the big screen.. But you can see her in the big pool of water on the stage.. She is on the right.. I had tears of Joy running down my face I was so happy. There were 100 people that took turns that morning to get baptized.. There was quite a lot of clapping, shouting and crying for loved ones being baptized. Families and friends were invited to go on stage to give our loved ones hugs and kisses... We all went and it was fantastic~! I gave Kelly the biggest hug and kiss.. Her Dad was in tears he was so overwhelmed.. It was a proud moment~!..
We went to Portillo's for dinner after church and then went home.. Rich and I went shopping. He had quite a few places he needed to stop and get things that he needed or his family needed..
Rich and Lisa went out to dinner with Richard's Men's prayer group and I stayed home with the kids.. They watched the movie "The Christmas Story".. very funny movie.. I got all the laundry together and washed all the clothes.. There was quite a few loads that needed to be done.~!
Monday evening I took care of Ben while Tracie went to school... When I picked him up at daycare ~ He came running and yelled "GranAnnie".. He was so excited to see me. I took him to his house and we had supper and then we played Thomas the Train ,, read lots of books, played on the super Nintendo and gave him a bath.. He went right to bed with Nibbles and his chocolate milk .. He was asleep in 10 minutes. When Tracie came home she massaged my back.. WOW that felt really good.. I'm so glad she is going to massage school... This is great.~!
It's now Tuesday evening and I'm ready for bed.. ta ta for now from Iowa.. It's 19 degrees right now... That is so cold... yes, I know it's suppose to be cold.. We have had a fantastic fall... No complaints from me. I'm ready for the next season.. Let it Snow-Let it Snow-Let it Snow...
