Miles always loves to help out in the kitchen! This past week we made some sugar cookies! We delivered some to the boys at the shop and to grandma Karen...Miles had a good time doing this!
Miles is going to be a dinosaur this Halloween! He loved his costume and even made me take a picture of the tail (not posted on here).
What would Halloween be without a devil kitty? She always hangs around when we do stuff, but she gets grouchy with Miles when he tries to tackle her.

Of course our boy Miles played on the grass a little bit tonight, but then he went back to his old favorites...mud and dirt. Oh well, I think he'll enjoy the lawn more next summer.

We've been really busy this summer with the shop, the garden, canning, camping and stocking up on firewood. I'm very glad that we hired a good employee to take my place at the shop so I can stay at home with Miles and work on house stuff.
Our chickens have been laying a lot of eggs and I'm very excited about that, we get great fresh eggs!
Jason went hunting and got an elk so I'll be busy making jerky and canning meat here in the next few weeks.
This isn't the greatest post, I know, but I'm going to try to keep up now that the holidays are coming up!

The next day we drove to Ouray, it was a cute little mining kind of town then we started up the hill towards the next town.
It was a scary but beautiful drive up through the hills of western Colorado. We stopped in Durango to eat lunch and walk around a bit. We thought about staying there for the night, but decided to head toward Mesa Verde. We got to the park and drove around the loop. Someday when Miles is bigger we hope to actually hike into some of the ruins that are available...he was just too small to do any of that. We did see some very interesting things in the park though and Miles had a good time running around.
It was a crazy but fun trip! We got to see quite a few new things and it has motivated me to want to get out and do more stuff. When Miles is big enough I'd like to go again and do more hiking and maybe even some biking...gotta get into shape!
