Just As They Are

It's been such a great Fall around here.  Here it is November, and we are still able to play (comfortably) outside. It's so nice.

I captured these images yesterday.  My little lady decided she was going to be a "Rock & Roll Girl." She found some sticks and played drums and sang for at least 30 minutes. It was a most awesome concert.
My boy took advantage of the weather to ride his Big Wheel around the yard. Each weekend I think "This will be the last time we're out here playing . . . " but nature's beauty and the sun's warmth keep being good to us.  I love that. 


And this is another attempt of mine to capture my kids just as they are - these moments are so precious to me, and I hope they will remember them one day and smile.

Goodness, we have a ton of leaves in our yard!


Lots of fun for the kiddos (and me too when I get to watch them)!

My First Baby

She's 12 years old now.

My little Madison, aka Maddie, aka Mad-Dog.


Where did the time go?

A Lazy Saturday Morning

My boy got sent home from school yesterday.  Seems he was quite sick - sick enough to get sent home with a bucket to hold his head over while his Daddy drove him home.  Poor baby.

He spent yesterday afternoon and evening sleeping, and when he woke this morning, he was feeling much better. 

Still, we kept it pretty low-key this morning - just hung out at home in our jammies. 


I love these little moments.

So glad he's feeling better.

Enjoying the Last of These Warm Days

Here we are:

Trying to soak up as much warmth as possible before Winter sets in.

We've had such a wonderful Fall!

I recently gifted my old (and very first) digital camera to my boy. He has had such a great time walking around and taking pictures, and in turn, I have a great time watching him.  I'll have to post some of his pictures soon - he's got some really good ones (although I'm biased, I realize)!


My little lady grabbed a good book, and was content to sit outside and enjoy the weather.


We ended our evening outside with a fun little game of Airplane before the sun set and we returned inside.


We will miss the warm days, but on the bright side, I'm looking forward to warm cuddles and snuggles this Winter.
