Sunrise

Staurday morning I woke up earlier than I would like on a Saturday morning.  While heading the kitchen to grab breakfast I look out the window and noticed the sunrise was beautiful.  So I grabbed shoes and a jacket (it was chilly) and capture the following pictures.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Deck Update - About complete

Just in time for Daniel and Ginette's baby shower, Aric finished up the deck for the most part.  There are still a few touch up items and next year we will do benches and plant boxes to totally complete the project.  Here are some pictures for your enjoyment.

Crafty Happenings..

In the midst of working on baby shower stuff - I actually found time to do some Halloween cards and treat bags.  As most people know - I love love love Halloween stuff and can't resist a new stamp set or paper.  Here are some of things I created this year - as usual I went overboard - can't do the same design for everybody!!!

An Abundance of Butterflies

Halloween weekend the lantana's in the backyard were covered in butterflies.  I was able to get pictures of some that I haven't captured before.  I really enjoy trying to catch pictures of each of the different species of butterflies and then identifying them.  Next year I hope to plant more plants that butterflies will enjoy.

How many butterflies can you find?
