Tree

q14a0426

The Sunday after Thanksgiving we went out to Timbuck Farm to cut down our tree.

q14a0431

Austin had to study for finals so he didn’t go with us this year ๐Ÿ™

q14a0434

Eva found a birds nest in our tree (all the birdies had flown the coop)

q14a0439

Cole cut down the tree this year

q14a0449

Every year someone falls apart. Eva wasn’t feeling that great and she kept it together for most of the trip.

q14a0460

We should have filled her belly full of food. I think she just got hangry.

q14a0467

q14a0472

q14a0477

Blake did some supervising
q14a0483

I was there too ๐Ÿ™‚
q14a0495

Eva insisted on pulling the tree to the bus to load up and take back
q14a0500

She’s not only strong-willed but super strong!

q14a0510

Getting them both on the rock…of course they were arguing.

q14a0521

7 going on 17

q14a0532

q14a0534

We went to have dinner and things improved

q14a0539
q14a0541

It’s not always easy but I am always glad we make the effort.

q14a0543

Susan/Gramma - Great looking tree and the kids (and you two older adults) look like it was a fun outing. How about posting pictures when it’s decorated?

Checking out little hidden parks

q14a8514-edit

Trying to back track on some blog posts here. So hard to keep up with everything this time of year!

q14a8515-edit

These pictures are from the end of October when I went out scouting new photoshoot locations

q14a8517

This park was a nice little find off the beaten path. The kids loved it.

q14a8521-edit

You know, when they weren’t fighting.

q14a8524-edit

Cole and Eva have been fighting so much lately it makes me crazy.

q14a8528

Stinkers

q14a8531

There was a creek and a footbridge and lots of climbing.

q14a8535

I can’t wait to go back for a real photoshoot

q14a8542

At this point Eva was starting to get out of hand and Andy just wanted to go watch the Buckeye game.

q14a8555

So we left ๐Ÿ™‚

Pumpkin Carving Party

q14a9002

So my friend Rita has the best style and I swear her house looks straight out of a magazine

q14a9005

We have been doing this pumpkin carving party forever.

q14a9007

The kids look a lot different from the early days.

q14a9008

I have a picture of Cole and Erik as one year olds at this party

q14a9030

And now they are 13

q14a9016

SO excited that my older boys were willing to join us

q14a9021

Feeling a little nostalgic this Halloween. Austin isn’t here but I got some good pics from him

q14a9057

q14a9060q14a9062

And then the finished products- Cole loaded his up with fireworks. Shaking my head…

q14a9070q14a9076q14a9089

Hannah - are you doing something different? I’ve noticed a change in your images. They look great. Hope all is well, I never sit down long enough to comment but I still try to save up your posts and read them ๐Ÿ™‚
