Susan and family were here for Thanksgiving with my two youngest grandsons, Winston 3 years and Lewis 6 months. These are their Christmas outfits and we took the opportunity to pose them together. They will be visiting Santa to have more pictures taken soon. More shots of them next week on Lew's Other Pics.

Little John Deere

A comment by Moe reminded me that I had more tractor images to post. This little Deere was at the Rose Hill Manor Fall Festival and was a delight, especially to the younger set. The youngster approaching the tractor was quite surprised when Oscar turned to face him. The sign says owned by 'John', driven by Oscar. John actually drove the tractor and controlled Oscar's movement from his chair in the wagon. More tractors on my PhotoHunts of October 10 and October 17.

Carroll Creek - revisited

Shops and offices along the creek

On Friday we stopped by Carroll Creek to enjoy the scenery, grab a bite of lunch, and take a few photos. It was a beautiful day, though the breeze made it a little nippy. The light spots on the wall in the image below are sunlight reflected in the windows shown in the above picture.
