Happy Thanksgiving!

It started snowing Wednesday night and snowed all day Thursday - our first white Thanksgiving!  :)
The front door mat at our new house has holes cut out in it,
which I had not cared for until I saw snow packed in them.  :)
Our landscaping bricks in the foreground, 
a church building down the hill from us in the middle, 
and South Table Mountain in the background.

That same church, taken from a higher vantage point, 
with our next door neighbor's front porch in the foreground.

Our little pine tree...
we don't have much of a yard, so I'm happy to have a few little trees at least. 

And the trees still haven't lost all their leaves yet!
It's interesting to see a combination of fall leaves and snow.

We went letterboxing for the first time in Colorado today!  

We decided to go to a wilderness area in Evergreen, which is the town where the Wal-Mart is that we've been going to, so we got to take that same beautiful drive on I-70 into the mountains.  This is the first glimpse of snow-capped peaks on the drive. 

 The first glimpse of Bear Lake in Evergreen.

It's starting to ice over!  

We brought our next-door neighbor with us...this is the first time in Jed's life that he's had a friend next door, or even on the same street.  We are all pretty excited about that.  :)

We got our first snow today!!

Granted, it wasn't much...but we were still pretty excited!

Jed tried to make the best of it.  :)

The sun was out and what little snow was on the trees turned to brilliant pinpoints of light.

November 6, 2015

Snow was in the forecast for the Metro Denver area yesterday, so we thought we would get a dusting at least.  I was more than a little disappointed to see nary a's been more than 2 years since we saw snow falling.  However, I know it's coming and I can be patient a little longer.

It was quite a surprise this morning when we drove to Evergreen (another trip to Home Depot and Wal-Mart - this always happens when we move) and saw that they got snow - and they're just 12 miles away!  They're up in the mountains, but still...if this is the way it's going to be this winter, I'm going to be making more trips to Wal-Mart than anybody should.  :)

I know this isn't much snow, but it's only November 6!!!
Can you imagine how gorgeous all those pine trees are going to be??!!

More beautiful fall color.

These are trees in our yard....

taken from the windows on our top floor.

And here's the famous Coors Brewing Co, as seen from our upstairs.
I took this one for you, Kitten.  :)
