October Fun!

Other odds and ends from this past month...
BBQ Festival-hot fudge cake...Yum!

Special visitor at the BBQ Festival

Bees doing well after a very hard summer. The drought hit them hard. They decreased a bit in number by the middle of the summer and ate up most of their supply of honey and pollen by the end of the summer. I had to feed them sugar water every week to help them out. So needless to say, we didn't harvest any honey this year. What they built up this fall, we need to leave for them to survive the winter. 

Poor thirsty girl, hot summer.
 Caleb shot his first deer this fall! Very proud. He got this doe with a crossbow after only sitting in the stand for 15 minutes. Hope he doesn't think it will always be that easy.
Did not slow her down a bit, found her at the top of her kitty tower 4 days later!

Po Peg-leg Kitty
 You know our luck with our pets. Yuki broke her leg a few weeks ago. She got startled and crashed into the wall with Rosey chasing/prancing on her. We still don't know exactly how it happened and I saw the whole thing. Bizarre!
2 weeks later, cast #2 after she pulled the first one off. This one lasted  a week before she pulled it off too! They let Hoodini keep it off and we are just keeping an eye on her.

Halloween Treats! Twisted Twigs (Twizzlers), Night Crawlers (gummy worms), Bat Guano (Junior Mints), Zombie Teeth (Candy Corns), and Bed Bugs (Pumpkin corns)

Busy month! Great photos and stories. Congrats to the boys on their TKD achievements.
Glad your bees & cats survived the year so far.
