Fall Family Photos

I knew I wanted a new canvas for above our fireplace and I knew exactly where I wanted them taken! SO we waited until the leaves were perfect and I LOVE what we got! Never before have we had this many good ones of the entire family!  
I think this is the one that wins the canvas award!

I have had this fabric for awhile but have been waiting for the perfect project.  When I got my lace skirt I realized that it was made out of the very same knit that I had!  SO I set out to make this dress that I had in my head!  It is fully lined with a drop waist, 3/4 sleeves and a gathered skirt. I loosely used the CMD pattern and just customized it to what I was wanting!  I love it when something turns out EXACTLY like what I had pictured!!!

Oliver + S Library dress!  I can't say enough how much I love this dress!

Don't mind me... I needed a photo for my photo business!

These also were Keaton's 8th Birthday photos!  These are the best photos we have had of him in a while as well!

I had a fairy, ninja and a dragon for Halloween!

We walked around town with these cuties for Safe and Sane trick-or-treating!

Then we went out for a little more trick-or-treating with these best friends of ours!

Little Miss during basketball!
 Brynlee came to visit again which we ALL loved!
Ring around the rosie!

All fall down!

"Mom, take a picture of me doing this!"  Goofy kid!

She spent all morning figuring how to sit on the ball... she would then smile and slowly fall off backward... and start again!

Jasper's Pirate party!

Love this of the kids!

Uncle Mark and Auntie Kyla with Mark's "new" car!!

Looking at books before meeting.

She finally decided that Papa was ok after he showed her a truck magazine!!

Brynlee finally fits into the smallest size on the Charlie-Mack-a-Doodle pattern!  YAY!
This is how Camden eats broccoli... plugging his nose... and ears for good measure!  I say whatever works, he has to eat it!
Map time is always easier with an armful of stuffed animals!

Our first snow!!! Early November!

Grandpa Great turned 80!!!  We had each of the kids bring down balloons until their were 80!!
