Sights of Halloween

Halloween is in the air.  It's getting colder and days are shorter.
Halloween decorations are popping up all around the neighborhood.
 The witches are celebrating on a friend's table.
 Making cards with friends - this is one of Mary Kay's.
Our neighbor's pumpkins are all carved.
My Halloween cards went in the mail today.
Are you ready for Halloween?  What will you be doing?

Family Visit

My son, Will and his family were here for a visit this last weekend.  It was great having them here.  Quality time with my granddaughters is just the best.  They left early Tuesday morning.  I miss them terribly already.

 Some crafty fun with Grandma Jan's supplies.
Como Zoo
Comparing M's hand size to the polar bear's paw.  
M: 'Can we just keep going?  No more photos.
The polar bear was bored and took a nap.

Here are some pretty poses just for Grandma Jan and Grandpa Bill.

Twin City Marathon - A Fall Tradition

It was a beautiful Fall day in Minnesota and a perfect day for the many runners.  It was not too cold and not too hot. There were beautiful leaves and lots of cheers and encouragement for all.
Bill and I were there to cheer them on too.  Here they come!
There were beautiful bright leaves; some so bright that they don't look real, but they are.

We stopped for coffee and bread at a local bakery on our way home.

It was another beautiful Fall day.  Hope you were able to enjoy it too.

Fall Begins: Almost

The tree colors are just beginning to change.  Most of the leaves are still showing their summer green.
But here and there a bright red or a bright yellow is starting to shine through.  It will be very colorful here in the cities in just a couple weeks.

We had a very windy Wednesday this past week.  The flowers were bending with the wind.  It was sunny and crisp - a great day to be outside if you don't mind being pushed along by the strong, blustery breezes.
Time to turn the page on your calendar!  Today is October 1st and it's another beautiful, sunny, crisp Fall day.  What's the weather like in your neighborhood?
