Fall family photos!

Is it sad that I am already thinking about holiday cards?


I don't think so either!

So...

My lovely cousin Jaclyn came by yesterday to shoot fall photos of Aidyn and myself!

The weather was perfect!

BUT

Where were the leaves?

My step dad being the ultra handy man had already raked and removed all the leaves!

Seems everyone else had the same idea!

So we headed on over to the local park to take pictures in the gazebo and brought along a few props as well:


They turned out great, but I still wanted some "leaf" pictures!

So after we drove around town for a while, we finally we spotted a great location!

One of the churches in town had big beautiful trees with gorgeous colored leaves surrounding the front!

We pulled over, and got to work!

AND WORK IT WAS!


We had plenty of pictures like this:
Before we got pictures that looked like this! TOTALLY WORTH IT!

I was even able to crop a few to get fabulous picture of Aidyn as well!


Now my biggest hurdle is trying to decide which one to use in my holiday cards!

In fact I am going to have voting for my cards later this week!! :)

P.S. I AM HOSTING ANOTHER GIVEAWAY TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET EXCITED!!!!!!!!

They came out great. I like the pictures where you guys are messing around in the leaves - they have more personality!! :) My fave is the one from on top (right above where you wrote "totally worth it") So cute!

I love all of these! It's going to be so hard to choose, wow. great idea having a vote off though, it's always nice to get other's opinions when you have been looking at something so much!

i had a dream about you and aidyn the other night. weird. actually, now that i think about it i have had two just this month. i was living on some old plane that had wrecked and i had it all fixed up with separate rooms and everything. you guys came and visited and aidyn was freaking out over how awesome and fun the plane house was. he kept bouncing all over the place and peeking his head out of the different rooms saying, "mom! you gotta see this!" so bizarre, right? just thought you should know :)
