Our light snow from yesterday turned into an actual snow storm today. Here’s that same view, just with a few inches of snow.


Leah was thrilled to find out that it was a snow day – the first one since entering elementary school.


Check out Maya looking out the storm door at Leah and Joe playing in the snow. I guess I’ll have to get her a snowsuit sometime soon!

A fall/winter view

I just love how beautiful the leaves look as they change color in autumn, so I quick snapped this photo on Friday of the two trees in my front yard. Normally by this time of year all the leaves would be gone, but due to an unseasonably warm fall they have stuck around just a tad bit longer.

Here’s the same view today, after a light snow.

Snow falling on top of leaves – now that’s not something you see every day. Isn’t it just beautiful?

Oh, and what fun it is to be able to post from my living room, using my new Dell Inspiron laptop!

Whew, October is over and it sure was a busy month! We had a really fun Halloween (oh, and thanks for all the nice comments about the face painting on my daughter Leah. No, I didn’t actually paint it. She had it done by a professional face painter at a party). We also celebrated Maya’s first birthday with our own neighborhood pumpkin painting party and I finally finished this book(boy, was it a hefty one).

Some time was spent at the local cider mill and we even attempted a corn maze. All in all, a lot of our October was spent outdoors and it was a great way for us to have some quality family time together. 

In the evenings (and if Maya takes a long afternoon nap) I have been working a lot on some new digital scrapbook pages. I am really enjoying scrapbooking digitally (love the fact that you can re-use digital paper and elements and that there is no mess involved)! I did this quick page just last night. You can see all of us out trick-or-treating with my girlfriend Debbie and her daughter.

I even subscribed recently to a national digital scrapbooking magazine and on a whim entered two layouts for possible publication. Imagine my surprise to find out via e-mail yesterday that one of my layouts has been chosen for publication in the magazine this spring! I can’t give out any more details right now, but I will definitely let you know how to find my layout once it is printed.

How was your October?
