Fall 2014 Portraits

My time is getting shorter for me to get our Christmas Cards ordered - I am such the procrastinator! And since today was so beautiful I took advantage, grabbed my camera, and snapped some pictures of my babies! Now the problem is deciding which I like the best! Here are a few of my faves!

I don't know when my little girl became so grown...

And just to prove how hard I have to work for good pictures sometimes...here is Aaron pouting b/c he "wanted to look at something else"...

He eventually came around to my pleas, demands, bribing, threatening...

And it became one of my all time favorite shots of the day!

Teta went out on our photo adventure today, too...and we did a little antique shopping for her!

I think the day was surely a success! Now the kids are off with daddy while I head to crossfit for a little me-time!!

They Made the Nice List

Aaron just skated by, but he did it...he's on the Nice List this year!!!

We headed to Santa's Wonderland yesterday!

 I don't usually like this much Christmas before Thanksgiving is even here, but our weekends are just filling up already so yesterday was the day!! And Grandma was able to go with us, too.

While waiting in line to see Santa the kids wrote out their Wish Lists - they took this very seriously!

And while waiting in line the Elf also had a chat with them...called them out by name and knew all kinds of stuff about them! They told them they both made the Nice List so they got a certificate for that!!

He made sure to tell Aaron that he needed to improve his listening skills just a little bit, though!!

We shopped, we had hot cocoa, we played in the snow and of course, took a hayride through the woods to see all the lights! This is always the best part!

Just A Swingin

My little folks & I took advantage of this awesome day and spent some time playing at our neighborhood park! I loved watching them spinning on the tire - I remember how much fun it was to spin like that when I was little. Now? Now it gives me a headache LOL!!!

Tonight I headed into town to meet my gf for dinner. We don't get to catch up nearly as often as I'd like and we too full full advantage of catching up tonight! We talked till well past midnight!! 
Now I'm so sleepy and gotta get up early for church in the morning and then I have a photo session in the afternoon. Better get those Zzz's now so I won't be laggin around tomorrow!!

Spooktacular Halloween

I hope you all had a great Halloween - we sure did! I love Halloween - it's so much fun seeing all the kiddos dressed up and the next day I love to see all the pics flying around on social media of friends' kids all dressed up with big on grins on their faces and bags of candy! Very cute!

We load up the kids and friends every year on our trailer and Michael drives them all around the neighborhood! This year Aaron was John Cena and Emma was a wizard - do not confuse her dress with that of a princess now...she is NOT into princesses anyway! Jeez!!!

Halloween 1

Halloween 2

Yes, that is my son walking hand in hand with little Lucy from down the street...how cute are they!?!?

We still have tons of candy left - Mommy is mean and only allows them a couple pieces a day! Ha ha! And we have one neighbor that gave out those giant candy bars - does it every year! It was a fun night and we were up late...and of course, my kiddos had to wake me up early the next day, too! I miss days when I got to sleep late!
