I've taken more than 600 pictures for Bijou Basin this weekend!  I hope you can humor me, I just had to share a few more. 

Of course the minute I typed that it hadn't yet snowed (Thursday), and hit "post," it started to snow!  If you click on my snowy geraniums above, you can see the beautiful little snowflakes.  Thursday was cold and snowy; thankfully, Friday was mild and sunny for Photo Shoot Day.  Yesterday, we woke up to 20 degree weather and more snow falling, (brrrr!!) and cancelled our family trip to Miller Farm.  Everyone had been looking forward to it, but it just didn't seem fair to make the boys trudge through the mud in the cold, just so Mommy could have more squash.  Today, was cloudy and cool, but not nearly as frigid as yesterday.  My brother and his family came over for dinner and we enjoyed watching the Broncos continue to astound football fans everywhere.  (The use of the term "dinner" confuses the little ones in our household.  Do you say dinner?)  Our five (collectively) boys enjoyed taking turns Photoshopping their faces.  I tell you, I've never had such eager cooperation for portraits - gotta remember that at Christmas time! 

I finished my FLS-intermission knitting project.  It turned out so cute, I can't wait to show you!  I have just about crossed off every official date or project I had on my calendar, for the year, and this week the Bruise and I are volunteering in the Art Room at school.  I've also got a handful of Christmas projects to work on, including painting, sewing, knitting, embroidery.  Hurray!   

I've gotten a portion of my stuff put back in the room that was lately occupied by Sisterpants, and we are expecting our first houseguests tonight: Nana and Grandpa.  This evening, we are anticipating another post-season win by the Rockies.  Even though I haven't kept up with them as much this year I'm glad they're still truckin' along.

Your pictures are beautiful Karen! I looks like you had lots of fun -- although with all that yummy yarn, what's not to love? LOVE that snowy geranium too -- beautiful snow crystals!

Your photograpy is just awesome, Karen! I wondered if you had snow - saw it on the Estes Park cams that morning and just couldn't believe my eyes! Can't wait to see your finished sweater!
