Daniel & Sarah finish up their dinner theater play practice before Emily & I go in for Choir Practice.
When you get 6inches or more of snow in mid-Nov, it is hard to tell if winter is just teasing us, or here to stay. Judging from the cold we got with it, I would say fall is over, and winter is definitely here a month early.

Its cold, but not frozen yet. Snow on the trees & lake (Camillia).
We went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter VII pt. 1. On a school night? Why? Because I like the whole experience. The excitement of seeing the movie first. We did dress up in costume for HP VI, but we were the only ones who did, so we didn't do it this time.

Richard, Sarah and I went to a Fireside celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Minneapolis Stake. My grandparents joined the church in the late 40s. Grandpa Danielson was Branch President when one of the Branch buildings was built. This picture is a history of building the building written by Arnold Knapp that was there, and a picture that I brought of Arnold Knapp, Elder Ezra Taft Benson-who dedicated the chapel, and my Grandfather, Carl 'Al' Danielson.

We finally got the rotting jack-0-lanterns off the porch and out where the squirrels could have them.

Have a good day!

This sunrise beauty is right outside my back door. The leaves are completely gone off the trees by now.
Every year, the 3rd graders have to make robots for a class projects. (can I tell you that I groan whenever these home projects get sent home??) But this was Daniel's robot. It is a cleaning robot that runs on cookies and makes money. Now I need to figure out how to get one of those for real.
The cat loves to take naps on the computer desk. Especially if someone is doing work on it.

Daniel's Bear Troop visited the Police Station. They were most excited to get their fingerprints taken.

Sarah, Daniel, Emily and I went to see Clear Lake Theatre's production of 'Phantom of the Soap Opera.' I was doing dinner theatre, so I couldn't be in this one, but it was very cute and fun to watch.

We got a good snowfall on Nov 13. Enough heavy, wet snow to build a snowman. We didn't get any of that kind of snow all winter last year. Usually, when it is cold, it is just light fluffy stuff that won't pack.
Our beautiful, snow-covered tree. Winter is here (mid-November) ready or not.
