Thanksgiving Day

Some images from our Thanksgiving Day. The food is always great, but I love the "prettiness", too. Here is some of the pretty stuff.

Through my 6 year old's eyes:

I am thankful for plentiful food, a nice home, hearty giggles, nature's beauty, God's hand in creating that beauty for me, an innumerable amount of blessings and above all--wonderful friends and family!! My Thanksgiving was full of these things--I hope yours was, too.

5 Minutes in the Life. . . . . .

Just a couple more from our everyday. Mostly, our everyday has been trying to get better before we get sick again.

5 Minutes in the Life. . . . . .

I spent 5 minutes or less with my camera this morning trying to get some photos of my baby (and just so you know, he will be my baby for a while still!!) The minute I clicked the shutter and captured the first frame, he ran in my direction, saying (in his own language, of course,) "COOL, mom got out that fantastic black box that is covered in delightful amounts of my favorite things--BUTTONS!" Then, the next 3 minutes were spent showing him the photos on my LCD screen and letting him push a few buttons (don't panic, no camera's were harmed in the process of taking these photos.) Thankfully, my LCD screen "magically" turns off after several seconds of not being used. When I wouldn't turn it back on, he became disinterested and allowed me to take a few more.

However, the 5 minute or less photo shoot ended when he saw the refrigerator. He knows the refrigerator usually holds a wonderful selection of his favorite foods. Like any normal boy, he was hungry and desperate for food--RIGHT NOW! Thus the photo shoot ended.

Look for more of these "5 Minutes in the Life" photo shoots in the near future at a blog near you (okay--just my blog.)

Red Leaves

I've passed these a bunch of times and because of that--missed their prime color. I finally stopped yesterday.

Few Fall

Fall is quickly coming to an end. I see snow in the forecast for the end of the week and those snowflakes are likely to start falling more frequently. However, one of the trees in my yard is still in full color and I decided to take a few before it's branches are loaded with snow.

And believe it or not, the lavender is back in bloom. I couldn't resist.

Hope you are enjoying the last nice days of fall!

Halloween at our House

WOW--10 days since I last posted. Shocking!! The even more shocking part is that I haven't picked up my camera in a week. It sat quietly tucked away while I spent the last week setting up a brand new computer. This included installing the new Windows 7 64 bit (a BIG thanks to some good friends who helped with this), re-installing all the programs I use, importing all the catalogs, actions, brushes that I need for said programs, transferring and organizing all my old emails (some I haven't had access to for over 2 months), and replying to 2-month old emails. Then the last 2 days were spent finishing some print orders for family that have been waiting for my new computer. Today I finally feel like I am a little caught up.

So, today, I will be taking lots of pictures to make up for last week and am just now posting a few from our Halloween weekend.

Some of the Spooky Food from our Spooky Lunch on Halloween Day.

Here are 2 of my Spooky trick-or-treaters and the Scary pumpkins they carved!

I'll be back (think scary Arnold Swarzenegger voice!!!)
