Hall Creek

I decided to take the photowalk challenge. I saw this challenge from Darcy, she says, "Have you ever done a photowalk? Have you ever challenged yourself to walk around with your camera and consider the world around you differently through your lens?  I challenge each of you, if you’ve never done one before – load up the kids in the wagon or stroller, strap that camera on and be intentional about seeking photo opportunities in your own backyard."
I realize I am behind in my Everyday Beauty posts for this year. I am suppose to post a picture weekly of something I find beautiful from where I live. I guess with the cold weather, the leaves falling off the trees, the flowers in my garden black with frost, got me in a rut. Then I read this post and was inspired again.

Owl Cookies

We brought treats to the school Halloween party. We are fortunate enough to live in such a remote area that kids are still allowed to bring homemade treats. This was prohibited at all the other schools my kids have attended. Everything had to be prepackaged and from the store. We made these owl cookies with candy corn beaks and mini chocolate chip eyes. We were fortunate enough to have a cookie cutter, but if you don't, you can make them with an owl template. They would be wonderful for your family or friends, a Halloween party, or owl themed birthday.  We got this idea from Sunset magazine.
