Advent is here and Christmas is coming

We have a beautiful new creche from St. Dunstan's gift shop. It is a little early for Christmas decorations but at least the creche is out, reminding us of what we are celebrating.

We spent the weekend in Chicago visiting Grandbabies

Susan's son Mark and his wife Elena live in Lombard, IL, just East of downtown Chicago. We flew up for the weekend to see them and to enjoy our granddaughters Fiona (4 years) and Moire (19 months). No special occasion, just a grandbaby run. We got to see the most recent dance steps, and the latest Halloween costumes. They are growing up very fast.

Angels with saggy wings.

Fiona was a flashy cat. She looked better with whiskers.

I am NOT sleepy. I do NOT need a nap!

After Sunday lunch we went down town just for the drive

We drove East on Eisenhower Expressway. The tall black building is the Sears Tower.

The Expressway goes under the Post Office.

The tunnel also drives under the Chicago Stock Exchange

The Chicago Public Library.

The modern sculpture at Centennial Park

The Entrance to the Navy Pier.

South on Michigan Avenue. Christmas lights starting to twinkle.

The Old Water Tower. One of the very few buildings to survive the Chicago Fire of 1871.

The Autumn Leaves are Nice This Year.

Northeast Oklahoma has fall color which can be spectacular if summer rain comes at the right time. As October turns into November the trees begin to show off a lot of color. The peak will come in a week or two but the early ash, oak, and maples are looking good. We took a drive around Tulsa and took some nice pictures. These are all within 5 miles of our house.
