Bird Watching

We are studying birds in Science this year. We have been making bird feeders, putting out seed and watching to see what birds come by. John and Joseph are enjoying it very much. They like to look at things up close and personal.

New Hair Do

Yesterday, I decide to try a new hair style. I cut it myself, if you didn't guess. When I came out of the bathroom John said "did you cut your hair?". It is at least 4 inches shorter in the back but the front is the same. Joseph didn't even notice.

Matt's Manly Ride

As most of you know, Matt hit a deer a couple of Saturdays ago with his truck. Because the truck was not worth much and our insurance didn't cover any of the damages, we have decided to go ahead and get Matt a different more Manly truck. It's definitely not new but it looks new for a 1999 and has pretty low miles. I'm sure when you see Matt driving he will have a Really Big Smile on his face!

First Snow

It's snowing here this morning. I can't believe it. It will be Christmas before long. Hope everyone is enjoying the changing of the seasons. It didn't stay fall very long though.....that's a bummer.

The Leafy Leaf Pile

Yesterday I was thinking what should me and Joseph do. Then I thought lets build a leaf pile. So we got the rake and piled leaves. I thought I should snap a few pictures. Here's what I got.-John

Canaan Valley Vacation

We spent the last few days in Canaan Valley with Matt's family. It was a very nice trip just hanging out and enjoying the fall color.
