 From the Pre-K Halloween Bash...

 To dressing up with the Fam. and watching my "Twin Ninjas" have a blast-
 From snuggling a sweet little puppy...
 to watching a sweet Papa snuggle your little puppy-
From hanging with great friends (I love these girls♥) to enjoying my amazing family...
This was a Happy Halloween!!
Hope yours was the happiest ever!
By the way, our little "Nun" pictured here is having a baby in less than 12 hours!  She looks beautiful, huh?  Can't wait to meet their precious new baby girl.

Sneak Peek

Our awesome neighbor/budding photographer snapped some family shots this evening and sent this one, so we could have a peek.  I think it turned out pretty good!  Honestly, just seeing my family all looking in the same direction means it's a winner in my book.

Memory Monday

Really, this "memory" was only from about 6 weeks  ago, but I haven't blogged in so long, I'm now playing catch up.  On this day in the mountains we saw the very first glimpses of Fall... golden leaves here and there.  It was warm and sunny, but still you could feel just a hint of cool in the wind.  Why is it that kids are always happiest in nature?  I tend to think they are bored at home.  They're confined, there's not much exploring they're able to do.  In the woods- it's limitless!  One of my favorite things to do with my kids is just to observe them and watch how those little minds work, learn and create.  It's really just amazing to me!

...And these taken just a few days ago near the same spot.  SNOW.  Yes, we have had our first snow.  It was absolutely breathtaking.  I always feel slightly disappointed when I see the pictures and they don't even come close to showing how spectacular things really were.  It was so snowy and dark, it felt like we should have been on a sleigh ride through the mountains.  The boys kept screaming "it's CHRISTMAS!!!"

I feel truly blessed to live in such a paradise.  Of course, this is one of the most gorgeous times of year.  Ask me again in March (when the rest of the world is enjoying spring and I'm digging my way out of a huge blizzard) and I may tell you this is a complete hell hole!
