You Capture- Favorites

This week for You Capture we are to post our favorite pics of the week.  I think I already posted many of them on my Halloween posts here and here, but I did find a few more favorites I had left out.

A shot of Joey's favorite bird, the Cedar Waxwing.  Love the little red dot on his wing and the yellow tips of his tale. I had to add this pic to my For The Birds post since it is such a nice close up. 
 Another shot of a wild Lake Michigan.
 Grace all snuggled up in daddy's sweatshirt early one morning.
 Our front yard all prepped for trick or treaters.

Oddly, we don't get cedar waxwings here. Your front yard looks like a super fun stop for trick or treaters.

It always surprises me when I see pictures of the Great Lakes, and they look more like the ocean. Those are some big waves!

Wow what a great picture of that bird, I can see why it's Joey's favorite! Atty actually gasped when he saw the picture, funny kid. He loves your bird pictures. :)

And your house is just perfect for this season!

Your yard is wonderful! I love it when people go all out for Halloween. So much fun! And the look on your daughters face made me laugh. She looks scared to death. :)

Kat said...

Verna Lantz- Haha! She does look scared, doesn't she? She was actually pretending she was a puppy. Those are her puppy dog eyes. hehe

Lake Michigan is looking ticked off in that picture! (Last time I saw it, was the bay in TC, so it was the calmer side).

Grace sure is cute in daddy's sweatshirt.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
