Ice Ice Baby

It has been raining for 3 days continuously.

Combine that with freezing temperatures and you get some beautiful but deadly phenomenons.

First, there is this crazy beautiful crystal world of shiny icicles and glittery ice.

However, with all that amazing beauty, comes some pretty devastating and dangerous situations. Ice is HEAVY!

We lost a bunch of tree limbs this time - the worst that I can remember ever having personally experienced.   BUT I am awfully thankful that none of the limbs fell on any critical areas/structures ( *fingers crossed * ) that the electricity ( and most importantly, HEAT ) is still on !

Autumn Love

Autumn usually gets here rather late - we have long, long, hot summers - but when it does, it is very pretty :)

Add this little face in there, and the view becomes phenomenal :)

Early Thanksgiving

Hillcrest hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for LAFF last week.

I didn't have my camera with me, so my phone photos are not the best.

Cindy has been home for about a couple of weeks now, and the little boy has been over the moon to have her back :)

As for the family Thanksgiving get-together, I've got a 20 lb ( if I remember correctly ) thawing in the fridge. Hoy.

The Enormous Carrots

We found some of these monstrosities at Walmart, going for $0.56/pound. Man.
