whadya know! it is fall!

while the high in Mesa is 87 degrees on this mid November day, here in the mountains it is chilly and brisk. the leaves are golden. the smell of wood burning is in the air. i havent taken my sweater off today. it reassures me that it REALLY is fall.

my girls love to find "treasures" when we come to mimis and papas house. they fill up their brown paper bags full of pine needles, cones, rocks, leaves, sticks. it keeps them busy and they get to feel, see, and smell nature.



holding on










it really is fall!

Our fall has come and gone, but no snow yet. All the leaves have fallen. We're still getting pretty warm weather for MT. It's in the high 40's today. It actually feels really nice out. Not ready for snow. Enjoy your sun. I remember hot winter days there, really weird. I could never do that again. Want to go visit though. Meet all my cousins spouses and see the family again. Love your photos.
