We got our first snow of the year in El Dorado Hills today!  Here is some pictures and video of that + some pictures/video of a hike this weekend in a local rock climbing area near the Consumnes River.

Christmas Tree 2009 and Debby’s Third Trimester

Yesterday, Deb, Will, Bear and I went over to Apple Hill to pick out our Christmas Tree!  We found a beautiful White Birch that we had cut for us.  It was nice to know that the tree will regrow and was not killed in the process.  Here are some pictures from our outing.  Also attached are some pictures of Debby in her third trimester and some pictures and video of Will from November 2009.

Landscaping, November 2009

We’ve doing doing a ton of landscaping lately.  We planted about 100 new plants (including Redwood, Dogwood, Sage, Heather, Boxwood, Smoke Bush, Azalea, Camelia, Purple Salvia, Red Salvia, Sky Pencil, Breath of Heaven, and some others whose names I cannot recall) , put in a decomposed granite pathway, added drip irrigation and covered the ground with shredded redwood.  We also got our pool cover installed and the got the pre-plaster permit.  The next step is to come up with a child-safe ground cover for the other side of the yard and put in 2 or 3 play structures for Will.  Then, we’ll finish it off with some accent lighting and perhaps a couple of heat lamps and patio furniture.  At the end of the album, we’ve got a picture of the new grape vine wall art we got on sale this weekend in Auburn.  And of course, a picture of Will on his scooter!

The Chawla Family has been having a great October thus far. We just got back from a weekend in Yosemite, where we enjoyed the Fall colors and smells!  Here are some pictures from our October…

Will’s 2nd Birthday!

I can’t believe Will is already 2 years old!  We had a really good birthday with him today.  He celebrated with his friends at Fastrack Kids this morning.  Then, we opened a couple presents.  After that, we went to the Folsom Zoo and some some Bears, Tigers and Wolves!  Finally, we had a fun pizza party dinner with some of his friends from the neighborhood.  Here are some pictures from the day followed by some pictures from earlier this month…
