halloween and beyond

Wow!  The Fall has flown by and I’ve been remiss at sharing what I’ve been up two over the past few weeks.  Our family thoroughly enjoyed Halloween and Thanksgiving and everything in between.  The beautiful Bluegrass weather has been many outdoor festivities possible!  Here’s a photo recap of our last several weeks!
