Pumpkins & Sleigh Bells...

Oh yes, Fall is definitely here, especially now that the front of the house is properly decorated! <wink>

Miss M. and her friend J. went out to the pumpkin fields yesterday and brought back a whole bunch of them in all shapes and sizes. They spent several hours of designing, cleaning, scooping and then carving the two largest ones.  Then they set out to decorate the front stoop. It's looking pretty spooky right?  {smile}

The forecasters had already told us that the snow levels would come down to 3000 feet this weekend, but when we drove around in the Valley this afternoon, the snow covered mountains still took us by surprise, and a very pleasant one at that. (I love the snow!)
I didn't have my camera at the ready but I did find a couple of pretty pics from a local newspaper. Just look at all that snow!

"Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh.
Over the hills we go, laughing all the way!"
Love it! {big smile}

Oh, and in the latest running news: this morning (when I didn't have to run in the first place) I ran 20 minutes straight without any slowing down. I just skipped a whole week of training! Tadaa!


  1. Such beautiful pics! And congrats on the running....I am so impressed!

  2. Owwww, nu al sneeuw??? Jij moet al helemaal in kerstsferen komen ;)
    Enneh, yesssssss, goed gerend!!!

  3. Goed bezig weer! Die pompoenpitten gaan jullie die drogen en hoe doe je dat?

  4. That seems a really weird combination to me, snow and Halloween! But then again Halloween is meant to be weird! Happy running! Ada :)

  5. So much fun you have at Halloween. Well, it's coming here too, so slowly. It's nice having something going on during fall and not only during spring.

    I love snow, too. Dry snow and lots of it! And the pictures look promising!
