September/ October Footage

Since we are nearing the end of November, it is probably a good idea to sneak up our footage from September and October.  My goodness, life is happening fast.  But nice to see the last warm days we had before it got real cold (and real dark, the 4:30 sunset is killing me).  Here is […]
