It began with beautiful foliage. On occasion we even had a little sunshine...and I quickly pulled out the camera. We have had rain over here most every day for the last two months.
Some of our fields look like lakes; it is hard to imagine that there was corn growing here not long ago.
Whenever the sun came out...so did my camera.
Can one ever have too many pictures of autumn leaves?
Somehow I appreciate them more when they are attached to the boughs...than when they are on the ground and need to be cleaned up. By now the limbs are all bare!
Emme and Spencer turned 15...and invited us over for a birthday dinner. Since they are both DQ girls...they had an ice-cream cake for dessert. Of course! One can never have too much ice-cream...so they say.
Chester was really excited about celebrating with them!
Micah also has a November birthday...
so we had a cousin celebration on another night.
Where did November go? Gone like the trains that roll through our neighbourhood!
Gone like the leaves that are blown in the wind. The snow is building up on the local mountains...and winter is just around the corner. And so is Christmas!
The three grands from next door are sleeping over here for a few nights while their parents are in the big city for a conference. Ryder had hockey right over the supper hour...so some of us ate before. One ate by himself. And we all had Christmas ice-cream while we watched Polar Express tonight. They thought it quite a shame that I had never seen that movie...and so that all changed this evening. I'll see if I can handle a few days of getting everyone to the right place at the right time! I'd almost forgotten what that was like...and admire the parents who do this all the time.
Wishing you all a wonderful 'month before Christmas'...as you prepare your heart and home.
