Pumpkin Farm Fun

We made our annual trip to the Pumpkin Farm...again supporting our local Basse's Taste of Country.  We really like it there -- caramel apples, tons of pumpkins, hay rides, corn maze, petting zoo, playground, corn house, corn name it! 

With two VERY active and busy was hard snap pictures of them in action. And, because we like to get in on the fun WITH them...sometimes it is hard to remember to take the pictures in the first place, honestly...I'd so much rather be IN the fun making the memories sometimes....

Of course, I managed to snap a few....

And then, because I was feeling all nostalgic,  I took a walk down memory lane...
Our first year at Basse's in 2008 -- Max was just under one year old...
We must've been too busy in 2009 to go to Basse's because our next set of pictures shows up in 2010.  Max is almost 3 and Sam is 6 months.

And then, 2011 -- Max is almost 4 and Sam is one and a half...

And now - 2012 - an almost FIVE year old and a two and a half year old.  Crazy how fast they grow and how fast time goes by!

Man, do I love my two little pumpkins!!!

Christmas Cards in October? ***AND A GIVEAWAY***

Have you started thinking about your Christmas cards yet?

WAIT, what?

You're too busy carving your pumpkins and raking leaves and you think it's too early to be thinking about that?  



I'm thinking about mine already....

  • I already have a photo session booked with my favorite awesome local photographer, Shannon Wucherer Photography.
  • I've also got an entire pinboard of inspiration for outfits for the photo shoot this year -- I'm thinking navy and yellow for colors this year, but I'm still figuring it out.

For me:

I mean CUTE, right??

WHAT???  NO WAY!  

This means that I can scour their website for inspiration BEFORE my photoshoot -- and color coordinate my outfits WITH my card choice!  SO PERFECT for my Type A personality, don'tcha think!?!  :)

Look at some of the great layouts they have!! I'm partial to the multiple photo layout ones, but there are TONS of other ideas on their website...CHECK IT OUT!!
