Earlier this week I got out with the kids and finally did our annual pumpkin photos! I wanted to keep things simple this year. All of the kids got their own tiny pumpkin and we had a good time with these photos together.
|This one makes me think that they were all laughing at someone but I took the kids all by myself... maybe there was a ghost on this abandoned property.|
I'm so grateful for the beautiful orchard behind out house. I hope it always stays an orchard.
|Archie took this one.|
|I really love this girl and her outfit!|
So the 2nd half of these photos were taken behind our house. The irrigated water brings up tiny shells from the Rio Grande and they are treasures.
|She noticed a neighbor's horses and was so excited.|
Lulu is not loving to have her hand held these days...
The sky was pretty amazing that night.
We had a few sunflowers pop up after the fall monsoons and they are so pretty!
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I get to host it with most of my family coming over and a little bit of Jacob's family coming over to our new house. Today I am grateful for a big dinning room and a house that has room for family to stay. I really love our house and I'm so grateful for the land that came with it. I look forward to our own small orchard, a big garden and some green pastures full of animals. I am so thankful for my family that I get to share all of this with.
I'm grateful for my camera! I get to preserve so much beauty in our family and freeze the adorableness of these children. I love the adventures we get to go on together. How may 4 year olds get to go on private tour of an airport to do their birthday photos? I LOVED watching the boys awe over the planes taking off. I will always remember their love of the white gypsum sands and their excitement over a candy shop made just for them. My camera has provided me with a creative outlet and a chance to talk to adults (stay at home mom problems)... and of course it helps us be more financially prepared. I am also thankful for so many amazing clients!!
Above all, I am grateful for my loving Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. I know they hear my prayers and love me. I feel their blessings in abundance!
