Beautiful colors

I didn't have to work on Thursday night at
the Library so the kids and I took a walk
around the place enjoying all the beautiful

This is the soy bean field to the west of
our house. It is ready to be harvested.

This is taken looking East.

Another shot to the East.

This is looking South.
I just love WI's rolling hills.

A maple tree in the front yard (North),
with my very favorite willow tree
directly behind it.

Another maple along our driveway.

I am completely enamored with all the beautiful autumn
colors in our area.

Found this paper wasp nest on our walk as well.

The kids were off from school on Thursday
and Friday this week and Colton
went with some of his friends to work
at their Aunt's Turkey farm on Thursday.
He said you cannot imagine the stench,
it was so foul. The turkey houses held
up to 14,000 birds that weighed 60lbs each!
The birds are being raised for the JennO
plant up in Barron, WI.
He made some good money and will
be helping out again in November.
So, that left Chyann and Caden
home alone.
They actually did well.
No fighting and the house was half way
clean when we got home.
They did some fall decorating and coloring
of Halloween pictures.

Most of the picture frames and all the doorways
were decorated with leaves.

Interesting, wouldn't you say...

Woke up to a very light dusting of snow this am.
It's coming....

Nice fall photos. The art work the kids created was very interesting. Love that blue tape, hee, hee!

Your kids are very creative. You can buy pretty colored duct tape you know....even oranges and reds for fall. Your views are beautiful- I can see why you love it there. I'm still having a hard time understanding how you can live without mountains in the distance though. Kris realized she missed them when she went to CO.

Glad you and the kids were able to enjoy the fall walk. I love watching the leaves turn colors. Sometimes it just takes a day or two and suddenly a tree will be bursting will flame.
I miss those crafty kids things around the house.
