Pretty Girls, Pretty Tree

These are two random pictures, but I wanted to combine them.  This is the girls yesterday before church.  I just thought they looked so cute.  And below that is the maple tree in our front yard.  It is SHOCKINGLY red this year!  I don’t know what made it so much more beautiful this year than any other we’ve been here, but wow!  People have stopped in front of our house to take pictures of it!  It’s absolutely amazing!  The pictures don’t do it justice. :)

Watching Daddy

I love silhouette shots.  Not that mine are comparable to any photographer AT ALL, but I still love them.  One of Bailey’s favorite things to do when Craig is mowing is to stand in the front windows and wave at him each time he passes by.  He will wave to her each time and she says over and over, “Daddy mowing, Daddy mowing.”  I said earlier that she isn’t into dressing up in the clothes as much as the shoes, but the tutus are a different thing.  She can slip them on over her pants and go.  She has really been wearing them a lot lately!

Dressing Up

The girls have really been into dressing up lately!  We moved the playroom downstairs and changed the upstairs into our schoolroom, and the girls have played with their toys SO MUCH lately!  It’s amazing what a change it made just making their toys more accessible and just organizing them better and moving them to a different spot.  I also moved the dress-ups in there and I love seeing them play dress-up!

Bailey doesn’t dress up a lot in the clothes, but she LOVES the shoes!  I put them all in the same place, very accessible to her, and she changes shoes several times a day and walks around the house in them.  It’s hilarious!  Most of these shots are playing after bath time and before bed.

I thought this was cute…Bailey got tired and was ready for bed.


Fall Festival

Our church had a fall festival, like they do every year, and the girls had a blast!  Craig was working a booth and I was wrangling the girls by myself and trying to take pictures for the first part, so there aren’t a ton, but you’re probably ok with that! :)

This year we actually went to a different pumpkin patch called PumpkinTown with our friends the Bakers.  They are homeschooling, too, and are a lot of fun to get together with!  Avery loves Peyton, and I’m sure everyone at PumpkinTown that day got sick of hearing her call to Peyton the entire time!  It was, “Peyton, let’s do this!  Peyton, let’s do that!  Peyton, come over here!”  and on and on!  I’m so glad we have a homeschooling family to get together with for activities like this! 

It was pretty fun and had lots of things for the kids to do.  I had totally planned to go to Carmichaels like we always do, later in the month with Daddy, but alas, it didn’t happen.  Oh well, next year!

Pre-Pumpkin Patch Shoot

Taking pictures before going to the pumpkin patch…


Having fun.


Actually looking at the camera.


What?  Actually posing for Mommy?!


Still sitting still?!


Hey, Avery.  This is getting boring.


Let’s pick your nose!


No, seriously!  Come on!!


OK, fine, I’ll pick mine.


I love you, Sister.
