Taking my grandson Sammy trick or treating. Kind of bittersweet though-It makes me realize how fast he's growing. I didn't want the night to end.

Folks, these are the "good ol' days" that we'll look back on someday. Cherish them.

Well, she lived up to the "silly" part of her name this week.

For a week or so I've had a basket of veggies on the counter, some of which were ripening banana peppers. No biggie.

Last week I came downstairs in the morning to find several of the peppers on the family room floor. Okay. I picked them up and put them back into the basket.

A few days later, I found (maybe) the same peppers on the kitchen floor. Put them back into the basket one more time.

Then, on Thursday, I was working in the kitchen when I noticed, out of the corner of my eye, Sally jumping onto the counter and, with a very sneaky look on her face, plucking two peppers out of the basket.

She quickly hopped down and rocketed into the family room with them.

All I could do was smile and laugh.

She was definitely "Silly" Sally.
It amazes me sometimes just how much personality pets can have! Your story brought back found memories for me, Thank you Katie!

Each and every one..I look at my grandkids and my heart just swells til I think it might burst..I am continually amazed at how much love they give us..I love every minute I get to spend with them, just hate when they have to go home, but then, I look at their mom's and dads and realize how lucky they all are.

I just love my grand kids so much..Up to a year ago I use to watch 3 of them 3 days a week..Then I got sick and and now they go to a baby sitter and it hurts so much...They are what keep me going still..They are my heart and my reason for living. I know to some that is foolish, but to me it's complete love.

my best memories were those spent with my grandparents in the summers...............and before he died my grandfather told me that he would never forget me crying when we had to leave.......those of you with grandbabies are providing them with more love and security than you can imagine.......they will never forget you.....

The last thing that made me smile was watching my daughter and her mini doxie play in the floor tonight like the two little silly kids they are. I had to break out the camcorder...priceless memories.
