Happy Halloween

A pretty cowgirl bride, a magical witch, a mythical assasin and a bunch of grapes - these kiddos are so creative!

New Necklace

Our favorite local jeweler, Creaser Jewelers, had a grand opening celebration in their new location today.  The girls and I just had to check it out!  I found some amber and they found lots of shiny things to save their pennies for...

Bald Eagle

We saw this big, beautiful Bald Eagle on our way home this afternoon!  After I snapped this quick photo with my phone, he soared away, floating across the valley towards our house.  Now we're wondering if he's the predator that has been eating our chickens!

Pretty Darn Proud of Himself

He has been taking archery lessons this fall.  Last night we purchased a bow for him, so this afternoon he made himself a target and started practicing at a distance of 30 feet from his target.  He's got a pretty good eye, wouldn't you say?

They were so happy to finally meet the newest member of the family today!

A Fine Fall Day

We went apple picking at Five Fields Farm in Bridgeton.
What a beautiful spot to relax!

Pumpkin Carving Helpers

I love living in a place where even the horse can roam free! The girls were carving jack-o-lanterns when they hollered at me to grab the camera because Lily had decided to wander over and see what they were doing. She stuck her head into the pumpkins, stole a few seeds to munch on, and then went back to grazing on the lawn. I didn't discover what really makes this photo priceless though until this morning when I was uploading it.  It looks like Amber is laughing at them!

Cold & Wet

They still had their meet, regardless of the cold, rainy weather. 
He did great, but I got sick!

Happy to be Home

Amber spent the day at the vet today, getting spayed.
She was so happy to be home that she snuggled right up to my husband when he gently lifted her out of the back of the car.

Sabattus Mountain

We all had the day off from school & work, so we climbed Sabattus Mountain in Lovell.  It was an easy hike for the kiddos and the view was absolutely unbelievable!

The house is finally getting a new roof!  What a great project to finish before winter.
