Pumpkins, Apples, Corn Pits and Family

 Derek's wonderful mom, Wendy, brother, Tyler, and sister, Erica came for a fun four day weekend.

We went to get our carving and pie pumpkins, and they had this awesome corn pit and a little hay maze.


This was taken right before Hakan was trying to get off the cart and pushed Adeline head first off onto the cement floor...I had a heart attack.  Thank God, she just had a big bump and scratch.


Last, last day of apple picking in the rain.

Hakan is going to really miss Fletcher until next year.

The perfect snow white apple:)


So pretty!

So hard to get a good picture with Grandma.

You don't have to watch the whole video, but it's just funny because she's always bouncing...and within minutes of the video, she was out.

Grandma so graciously watched our babies, and we had a date night, out to dinner, the MOA, fun to walk around:) and then coffee and tea.

We got to celebrate our good friend, Kira's, 8th birthday.  I made her American Doll, Kit's outfit in her favorite color and some matching hair accessories.  

Grilled Gingerbread S'mores Cake...I am one lucky girl.

Pumpkin painting.  I love his little face when he's concentrating:)

We love when our families visit!  This weekend, my mom and sister are coming, yay!

My Little Sis

She's known by my high school friends as "naked baby."  It might be because there are 11 years between us, and sometimes when my friends would come over, she'd be running around in her diaper, unfortunately for her, it stuck:)  But her name is actually, Samantha, or Sammy.

I can't believe that this little, bald until she was three, and then grew the sweetest blonde curls, is a senior in high school, and now a beautiful, super smart, shy and sweet woman.  I just have so much love in my heart for her!

I have to brag on her and her photographer, Justin Mark Photography.  The photos are AMAZING and so is Justin!  It helps that I have the most gorgeous sisters;)  It was hard to pick my faves, but here are a few, enjoy!

She didn't quite commit to this one, she was supposed to be upside down, come on Sammy!

Smooshy kiss!
Awww, she loves me, ha!
