And, I couldn't resist sharing these pictures of my 2 1/2 year old grandson that my daughter posted on Facebook.  Here is Tyler visiting sheep at a farm in Massachusetts:

Have a good week. :)

Masz uroczego wnuczka i ma ładny uśmiech. Czy ptaka siedzącego na kaktusie on nie kłuje. Twoje listopadowe zdjęcia są śliczne. Pozdrawiam.
You have a lovely granddaughter and has a nice smile. Is the bird sitting on a cactus he stings. Your photos are beautiful November. Yours.

I love the solitary beauty of a single leaf, the sweet little gecko and the majestic hawk. But, not so much the black bug. Just can't abide them. Ick.

OH---love those pictures of your grandson. I remember when he was born.. I read on your sidebar that he will have a brother in February... Congrats...

Great set of November Arizona pictures... I especially love the reflection ones.

Tyler has really grown! Your desert photos make me smile. The deer and rabbit photo is a special capture.

And how are you doing lately? It's been a really long time!

Great series of desert pics. And your grandson is real cute !

Darla said...

That is a CUTE kid! :-)))

I love the "glowing mountains reflected" photo best ... wonderful! But, hey, what are the odds of capturing both the deer *and* the rabbit in the same shot?!

Loree said...

Aww what a cute little man. I love the photos of the reflections.
