Start of the 1st snowfall of the year.  Maria and I planted a scraggly little, foot tall, Charlie Brown tree back in's sure grown up into a nice little xmas tree!

Sledding in the front yard

....and a snow angel or two

....but the kids wanted a real if was off to the neighborhood park

....apparently, big kids like to play in the snow too.... tell the kids to bundle up when they go and play in the snow.....and then mom sets a fine example

Alberta provincial cross country championships.  Maria was 3rd overall and 1st master.  Next stop Vancouver at the end of October for the XC National champs.

Carla turns 5 and Halloween

She's a BIG girl now!

....and a princess

Last big bike ride before the snow hit.

Great observations decks over the Bow river

Autumn snooze

17km to downtown from Bowness Park.  Ramon and I rode back to get the van, while Maria and Carla took the bus home.

The perfect skate board for Halloween

....a natural

Some folks go crazy with all the Halloween paraphernalia

Ramon looking a bit worried.... scary bunny!

The booty.  Which oddly enuf, disappeared the next day :)   They didn't even miss it.
