Hope It Was Wonderful

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!  We ate too much and laughed a lot!  

We went Christmas tree shopping last night and found a pretty Fraser Fir.  Tonight will consist of baking cookies and decorating the tree. :)

Blue Birds Looking For A Home

I've been taking a lot of pics with my new camera.  Now I have three, my Nikon Coolpix which is a very handy size, will fit right into my pocket, and takes great pics.  A Canon Powershot that is now working when it wants to, so it's not very dependable, but a great camera.  And my new camera is a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS.  I love it!  Sandra at MadSnapper knew I needed a new camera and she told me about this one.  She knows how much I like to photograph wildlife and this has a super lens for it!  Thanks for the recommendation, Sandra, you're an awesome friend!  
I used my new camera to take these pics of the Blue Birds.  I know the color is off, but I was just so thrilled to see them!  I started snapping crazy fast and there was no time to adjust the color! lol  I was actually inside drinking coffee and working on my ebay when I saw these pretties flying about.  So, all of these were taken from inside looking out into my backyard.  These are some of the prettiest birds I've ever seen and they are fast!  Looks like they're checking to see if this house is available. :)

Is it vacant??

I'll be back!

Leaves on Fire

Thought I would share some of our fall beauty with you.  The colors around here are so pretty!  Don't the leaves look like they're on fire?!  Just gorgeous!  Hope you're enjoying your fall!  I just love this time of year.:) 
Happy days to you all!

November is Here

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!  We had so many trick-or-treaters!  Everyone loved Kyle's jack-o-lantern!  He carved out a scary clown, at least scary to me.  lol  He also dressed up as a spy and passed out candy to the kids.  We had a steady stream of kids for two hours, it was a fun night!
I can't believe it's November already!  The high today is only 52F!  In Orlando it was usually hot on Halloween.  I must say we're really enjoying the seasons here.  Hope you're enjoying your weather and happy November!

Kyle looked up a picture of a clown
 and then drew it directly on the pumpkin on with a pencil and carved it.  Scary to me!

the blue lights are actually black lights, it was pretty cool.
the jack-o-lantern at the bottom of the porch was a cute one :)

My son, the spy.
