Pumpkin Photos And Thankful Thoughts

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.

This girl!

 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!
