Halloween, Richard and Time

You have probably noticed that we haven't been blogging much other than Link a Finish Fridays.  Quilting has taken a back seat lately.  Richard has still been doing a lot of exercising, he is down a total of 75 lbs.  At church, Richard used to work with Boy Scouts, now he has a job that requires a lot more hours for meetings.  We are Mormons or members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  We have a lay clergy, meaning they are all unpaid and volunteer.  Richard is now the 2nd Counselor in our Bishopric.  This means he is busy after work most Tuesday, Wednesdays, Thursdays and in meetings most of the day on Sunday.  Life is a little different around the Healey household, as we are trying to learn to cope with him being so busy, but in a good way.

We are trying to figure out a mix of things to do with our family.  We have a few quilting projects planned for Christmas and plan on making some seasonal items to put in a show.

Speaking of seasonal.  Here are the two youngest in their Halloween costumes and their older brother taking them Trick or Treating.

75 pounds! Woohoo! That's fabulous! And second counselor is a LOT of work, so I understand why not so much quilting is going on! Good, better, best, and this is the best choice. That's wonderful. Your children are getting so old. LOL I can't believe how much they've all grown since I started reading your blog ages ago. I'd love to see an update picture of Rebecca, too. Did you get released from something you loved?

Congrats to Richard on his new position in your church and on the weight loss! Both are extremely exciting accomplishments. Hopefully, your family will find it's groove again quickly so that you can get back to doing all the things you love. I've always been a fan of adding a few more hours to our 24 hour day. I know it would help me be more productive :)
