Fall came last night. I opened the door to take our dog Howie out this morning and a burst of cool, dark morning air greeted my face. Such a welcome surprise!

To say goodbye to summer (in hopes that fall will stay;) ) I’ll share some quirky faces of one of the cutest 3 year olds I know. Love his big brown eyes!

Bless all mother’s hearts who have THREE boys! Too fun!!

Yesterdays big raindrops got me in the fall mood, so I dug out my stack of October Martha Stewart magazines. Thumbing through one from 2001 made me realize how much fashion and design are always changing. As my kids spread out on the floor looking though all the costume ideas, I thought about past Halloweens. There is something magic about the change of the seasons and all hallow’s eve. Now I’m itching to dig through old hard drives and watch my littles grow older from Black Kitty costumes to the Bride of Frankenstein. Kids are always changing and loosing their baby fat and it makes me sick. Keep snapping those moments into your digital mess. My photos are pathetically organized, but I’m so glad our memories are there to look back on. Look how bitty Emerson is!

2012- Lee had moved to Austin already so I was packing the house, putting together Halloween costumes, and painting faces for a spook house my girls participated in. Good times.

Squirrel, Owl and Candy Princess. Obviously this Halloween was in Arizona’s 105 degree weather.

Having 4 sisters is the greatest thing in the world! I understand Michael Scott when he wanted 100 kids so he could have 100 friends. Sisters are kinda like build in girl friends right?! When we moved to Austin almost 2 years ago we knew 2 of my sisters were moving to Texas just 3 months after we moved! What are the chances?!

Since Laura is just 1.5 hours away in Waco, I haven’t missed much snuggle time with her newest addition.

Last weekend my Dad and another sister came into town at the same time, so sweet Calvin was given a name and a blessing at our church. We were so happy to have almost ALL our family in TEXAS!!

Every time we are in Waco for church it seems the clouds smile down on us and we have great lighting for some candid family pics. With everyone already in Sunday’s best we often take advantage.

Exhibit a:

Exhibit b: (last Easter)

Despite all the negatives you’ve heard about Waco it really is a quaint, little Texan city. I’ve got a family shoot all planned out in my brain for Waco come Halloween. It’s coming up!!

 

And one last image of my sweet new nephew.

As I’ve been exploring  the Austin area I am BLOWN AWAY with all the picturesque spots to hold a photo shoot. Austin photographers: in Arizona it was WORK just trying to get a hint of green in a background! ;) Love this huge, beautiful park where I ran around with 4 little girls who all have an “M” name. My tongue would be in knots if I was their mom! Thanks again Mx4!

While visiting my family in Waco this weekend we took some time to have a photoshoot with my sister Annie and her horse Poppy. While Annie was getting her mug on, my kids and I explored the ranch, tried to ride a donkey named Gus, saw a spider as big as a golf ball that will haunt my dreams, and generally get pretty dirty. Now my mind is spinning thinking about going back with my girls in cream, lace dresses and my camera.
