If you check the site out now,
Bren is on the front page!
That always makes us feel so honored!
Sheila, the owner/designer of
Baby Go Retro
is so talented!
She always comes up with the
funnest fabric combinations.
Her clothing is wearable and kid friendly.
Bren just loves Sheila's creations.
If you've got a little girl on your Christmas list
check out Sheila's site
for some very unique and
for fashionable little girls.
We love it when Sheila sends
samples our way because they
always inspire creativity in us.
She makes the kind of clothing
that causes me to know exactly where
I want to shoot them right out
of the box.
And that is fun stuff for a photographer!
for letting Bren be one of the faces
of your fabulous new lines!
And thanks Bren,
for letting mommy
after all these years
and for still having a great time
doing what you do!
You're the best sweetie!!
And thank you readers,
for letting me indulge in these
kid fashion/modeling post
every once in a while.
I hope you enjoy them!

into target bags
(because they are perfect
for carrying the expected small pumpkins in!)
was a funny sight,
but not nearly as hysterical as it's going to be
watching mom's face at the bus stop
when Johnny proudly rolls the oversized
down the bus stairs!
Look what I got at the pumpkin patch today!"
I had three sweet little girls in my group.
They had so much fun at the petting zoo,
the bounce house, the train ride and the hay ride!
It was a full morning of Fall fun!

As I watch him grow into a young man,
I am increasingly proud of
his work ethic
and his determination.
He's also the first to bring silliness to a whole new level!
His enthusiasm for the lighter side of life is contagious.
We are so blessed as a family to have Michael in our lives.

Bren found two perfect pumpkins sized right for painting.
Today I'm going to get the paint and then we'll
paint those little guys tomorrow.
We had apple cider and kettle corn.
The smell of spice was in the air.
It was the perfect day for the pumpkin patch!!
We drive by this place on our way home from
Seattle or Everett or anytime we are coming from South of here.
I think it's so beautiful!
When we first moved here, we traveled down this road
that winds through cow pastures and old farms.
We were in separate cars so David could not gage my reaction.
He and Zach were seeing
broken down rusty cars in yards,
tires and old bikes strewn around garages
seemingly on the verge of collapse,
smelly, muddy pig pens with makeshift fences,
and dilapidated old farmhouses.
They were guessing that I was already in tears over having to live here!
Madison and I were seeing
barns with peeling paint that would make
awesome photo backdrops,
sweet little farms with sheep in the pasture,
open fields flanked by treed hills,
and lots and lots of green!
Isn't it funny how perspectives can be so different?!
Bren wasn't sure she wanted to board it,
but ended up having a great time!
This flag was in the center of the corn maze.
We are thinking of going back with the older kids and letting them
do the maze.
There were all kinds of "clues" to find along the maze
that were losely based on government since this is an election year.
We didn't spend very long in the pumpkin fields
since we'd already gotten our large pumpkins last week.
We stayed long enough to oooh and ahhh
over some of the more unique ones
and then headed back to the tractor to ride back to the barn.
Some of the more exotic farm animals........
