Trunk or Treat

I was a bouquet of flowers!  The soldier checking IDs to get on post totally laughed at me. 
Nurse, flowers, witch, Frankenstein, and nerd.  We're a diverse bunch.
Pimp my trunk.

Pink Nose

Did you know that in the winter some dogs lose pigmentation in their nose, and they get "snow nose?" I had never heard about this so it made me nervous when Eda's nose started changing color.  It really is no problem though, I just have to be sure to put sunscreen on it so the pink skin doesn't get burned.  Silly, huh?

Clowning around

My dear friend and fellow blogger over at Good Old Days, created this awesome post with pictures of her past creative (and hilarious) Halloween costumes.  

I was inspired to show this little gem of photo with you.

Are homemade costumes not the greatest?  Thanks ma.

Grandma and Grandpa Howell Visit Colorado Springs (Part One)

Grandma and Grandpa Howell were so kind to go out of the their way to come stay with us for a couple days as they made their way from MN to CA for the winter.  They arrived at night, and the next day we drove up Pike's Peak.  It provided us with wonderful views, but boy was it chilly!  On the way down we found a sunny spot guarded from the wind, and had a little picnic.
Did you  know the North Pole is actually located in Colorado? ;)
Feeling a little cold at the peak!
So neat!
On the way down we were able to see Big Horn Sheep!
I discovered yet another similarity between Jake and his Grandpa on this visit.  They are both explorers.
Lunch time!

A Walk Around the Broadmoor

The Broadmoor is a beautiful hotel located near the base of Cheyenne Mountain in a wonderfully unique and luxurious community.

We had a wonderful time talking about the architecture and landscape around the hotel and surrounding neighborhood, but as usual we especially enjoyed the wildlife here in Colorado.

I Love Fall

I found this pattern on the awesome blog 'one sheepish girl' and tailored a few things down to my crochet skill level.  :)  I'm learning.
