We are back in Texas visiting family for the holidays. We went out to Tammy's house today. (R's sister) The kids got to check out the new baby pig and ride a really old horse named "Buttermilk". They had a great time. Unfortunately these pics were taken with a video camera. They definitey lack quality.

We decided to pack the kids, Sasha and some food up and take the 10 minute drive over to Palmer Park today. Beautiful November day here in the Springs. Perfect for hiking and watching fly overs by the United Sates Air Force. SO today is a really big USAF football game. They play ARMY. So, we got to watch as the F-15s (?) practiced their fly over. Pretty cool.

Trick or Treat? Very exciting for Ethan and Ellie - their first real trick-or-treat adventure. The kids in action.
Below, our beautiful pink princess and valiant warrior. I'm luckty to get this shot. Ethan wasn't as enthusiatic about his costume the rest of the evening. (He chose it, but I guess it was too long ago)

This is one morning last week, before school. You can tell who is excited and who is not so sure. We took a trip down to Taos, New Mexico . To meet my parents for some camping. A friend told me about this great kid's store called "Twirl" . The store is fabulous and even better- They have a great playground out back. SO Rich and my Dad watched the kids play while my mom and I got to do some shopping around town. Fun was had by all.

Fall is upon us and it seems Winter too... some days.
We had a great weekend with some visting family from Texas. We took a drive up to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park on Sunday. This time we had a great tour guide. A Texas Native who spends his summers in Colorado. Just when we were finishing up the tour a snow storm blew in. SO- we played. Below is Ethan getting ready to throw thisbig snow ball at his selected target.
Ellie, loving the snow.
Daddy, Ethan and Ellie making snow balls.
The infamous Stanley Hotel. Where Stephen King is known to have thought up "The Shining" while staying at it.
They have great tours.
This pictures is not from this weekend. I just found it and wanted to include it.
Finally, after almost 2 years of living in Colorado, we had our first "wild" bear sighting. This was taken with a cell phone, so it is definitely not clear. But the bear was about 50 ft from us.... (maybe?) We wer safe in our car. So no worries. It was beautiful.
