I finally have the ability to get pictures loaded up again. So, without further ado:
Zepplin, the fearless guardian (now cleared of all charges of goat chasing-he's innocent)
Cutie Patootie Simone
Just after the first big snowstorm of the year
Playing in the snow on the porch. I wouldn't brave the winds and snowfall, but they were out as soon as the snow started falling and I barely saw them for 5 days after!
The patented Neeka Face
Ron Weasley and his little pig trick or treating in the Historic John Dunn Shops
Every year the shopkeepers of the Historic Taos Plaza and John Dunn Shops decorate, costume up, and hand out candy to trick or treaters. It's one of the hightlights of our year. The town really turns out for this event and it feels like getting invited to the best costume party ever. We don't eat the candy we just like to be a part of the fun. When we get home we toss the chemical laden sweets and we make our own. Years past have included pies, caramel apples, art supplies, maple sugar candies and organic chocolates in trade for the junk.
The shopkeepers dress up too. This year we saw several women with sugar skull make up in traditional dress. They were my favorite this year.
