We took the girls to a pumpkin patch in my parent’s town right before we moved, mostly just so I could get 5 million pictures of the girls surrounded by pumpkins. We didn’t actually get any of the said pumpkins because we didn’t want to have to pack them. ๐Ÿ™‚ But pumpkins will be had! I want to get two mini pumpkins, tape out the girls’ names in painters tape, paint the pumpkins black and then peel away the tape so that their names are there in orange surrounded by black pumpkin-ness. Yes, I’m crazy, thanks for noticing.

This is basically a photobomb. Turn away now if the thought of adorable pictures of adorable babies makes you want to go running towards the nearest cliff.

Did we have a perfect day or what? It was beautiful! I love autumn. The colors, the clear blue skies, the crisp air. Don’t get me stated on soups, sweaters, boots, pumpkin flavored everything… It’s a great season and so, so pretty in Oregon.

That pyramid is where all the pumpkins are and since we were there for purely photographic reasons, that is where we headed.

Can you stand the cuteness? Cause I can’t. I squeak whenever I see this picture.


Gramma and the grand-babies.

I will have you know I was ludicrously tired that day. Haley is just not an easy night sleeper and we had been having some major sleep issues which usually involved both of us being up for approximately two hours every night, miserable the entire time because we both wanted to sleep, but Haley just can’t figure out how to get back there. Those two hours usually ended with me crawling back into bed almost in tears and having Ken go and get her to sleep because I was too angry/tired to deal with her anymore. Thank the lord for big sunglasses and coffee.

I color coordinated all of us on purpose. There are times when I want to be Martha Stewart so bad it’s not even funny… minus the whole insider trading thing.

We had a conversation in my twin group a couple of weeks ago about how most of the moms aren’t in any pictures with their kids either because they don’t like pictures of themselves or because they are the ones taking all the pictures. The blessing/curse of having a photographer for a sister is that I am in far more pictures than I would like to be, but I want the girls to see pictures of us together and of how much I love them. This series of pictures is great example of how, while I may not love how I look, I love how we look as a family and that makes me happy enough to ignore my tired, puffy face and focus on how perfect my family is.

Poor Daddy and Hazel. Momma and Haley are so crazy.

Anyone else pumpkin patch-ed it up this month? I’m so excited for it to be Halloween for the girls to (FINALLY!) wear their costumes.

Summer is still hanging on! The weather took a little dip last weekend, I think it got intimidated by the fact that it was officially fall, but it has rebounded beautifully! That is why my cutie-patooties are still in sundresses and rompers. I love the little flashy of roly poly baby thighs that I get while they are playing. It’s going to be so sad when it gets cold enough that I will feel guilty if I don’t have them dressed in a seasonally appropriate manner.

Here are last weeks pictures!

We are getting to the stage where I have to give them a toy to get them to hold still for 10 seconds. I feel like it’s so cliche that Sophie made it into this picture, but I literally just grab whatever is closest and shove it at Haley.

Doesn’t she look like a little porcelain doll? And yes, she is clapping. It’s her new trick and she is soclose to being able to do it on command.

On to this week! Ken is home this week as we pack and get ready for the big torture move. He was watching me take their pictures and had to help when I was trying to convince Haley to stay in the blanket and Hazel had crawled up behind me and grabbed the neck strap of the camera. He was laughing and asking how I take these pictures when I’m by myself. My answer? Very quickly!

The rompers are hand-me-downs from Cousin Eva and they are 9 month sized! It’s great timing cause I’m just starting to realize I don’t have a whole lot of stuff for them in that size and the clock is ticking on how much longer I can keep shoving them in 6 month sized stuff.

Trouble. Nothing but trouble. ๐Ÿ™‚
