There are several menu items this week that are brought forth from last week’s menu.  My husband surprised me by bringing home Chinese takeout one night last week and also decided he would like something not on the menu plan.  I never have a problem with that and try to remain flexible with meal planning.

Love In A Box – October 2019 – Theme: Fall

I think autumn is my favorite season.  I truly do miss New York State at this time of year.  Love these pics of our grandson enjoying a day at Tim’s pumpkin patch.  We are so thankful for a daughter who invests so much of her time and energy into making quality and quantity time with her son.   

IMG_3374

I created this 3d Book of money, Design #52083, on my Silhouette Cameo, in a fall motif.
The wallet contains four compartments that when folded up fits into a slip off cover.
I wasn’t able to get out to get things for this month’s Love in a Box, so thought I would send a bit of extra cash for Sean to buy what he would like.

On the left, a fall themed tic tac cover with acorn ornament Design #165535
and on the right, autumn gummy bag, Treat Bag Topper-Owl  Design #57964.

IMG_3382Smores, fall’s favorite treat!  This is Silhouette Design #87024, Smores Tote Box
which has contents to make 7 Smores…2 chocolate bars, 14 half graham crackers and 7-8 large marshmallows.  Great gift idea for indoor or outdoor smores.

IMG_3384As usual we include Trader Joe’s Seed Bars, pistachios, and mac & Cheese.

IMG_3380For our daughter, coffee card designed on Silhouette Cameo with a bit a coffee money.  She truly likes her iced coffee!

IMG_3385For our daughter who loves to bake and cook, some cookbooks which include some great Fall recipes!

Items sent separately…

October Call to Glory devotionals for daughter and grandson.  How important it is to be in the Word of God on a daily basis.

Mailed directly from supplier to add to our grandson’s collection.

It is such a joy to be able to put these “Love in a Box” packages together for our grandson and daughter.  And it is a joy to hear from them expressing their thanks and letting us know just how much they enjoy receiving their monthy packages.
