Last evening I greeted the Trick or Treat kiddos . . . plenty of candy for the itty bitty ones AND the teenage ones too. There were some real cutie pies and some very disturbing ones. Lil' Beckett sat out with me, inside my jacket to keep warm . . . the temperature was ONLY 40 degrees. I was a bit chilled to the bone and it took a few hours to warm up.
I have not gotten the kids together to take their Fall picture yet, however I did get a photo of our beautiful Japanese Maple . . .
This is a peek of my view while waiting for the Trick or Treaters last night.
Our tree is in full Fall Splendor!
I absolutely LOVE the red . . . it is breath taking!
Our small City is mourning the death of a hometown Marine . . .
Lance Corporal Jordan Bastean
Jordan was 19 years old . . . passed away Sunday, October 23, 2011 while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force out of Twentynine Palms, California.
Our City lined the streets with American Flags in honor of Jordan . . . hundreds of American Flags line the route . . . as is local tradition upon the escorting of a fallen soldier home.
Please pray for the family and community . . . the funeral and burial is scheduled for
Wednesday, November 2, 2011.
Thank you for your sacrifice Lance Corporal Jordan Bastean . . .
