Where's the snow?

Can you believe our area of northern Michigan is still waiting for a real start to the snowy season?  Living outside of Detroit I always complained that there was no point in living in the cold without it and now luck seems to have brought SE Michigan's weather here.  But I shouldn't complain too much because even though the days are getting much, much shorter we have been blessed with some beautiful sunny days.
Alex loves that the flocks of starlings haven't gotten all our autumnberries yet.
Penny likes chasing after kitties outside.
Nelson doesn't much care for this game.
We put up the tree early this year and with luck we will still have a white Christmas.  
Until then I'm doing some trial runs of Christmas cookies.
