Fall Portraits

I decided I would take fall pictures of Will and Shelby this year. Daddy was away on business. It was just the three of us. It was a little crazy, but somehow I still captured some sweet moments. Fall is such a beautiful time of year.

A Fall Song
by Ellen Robena Field

Golden and red trees
Nod to the soft breeze,
As it whispers, "Winter is near;"
And the brown nuts fall
At the wind's loud call,
For this is the Fall of the year.

Good-by, sweet flowers!
Through bright Summer hours
You have filled our hearts with cheer
We shall miss you so,
And yet you must go,
For this is the Fall of the year.

Now the days grow cold,
As the year grows old,
And the meadows are brown and sere;
Brave robin redbreast
Has gone from his nest,
For this is the Fall of the year.

I do softly pray
At the close of day,
That the little children, so dear,
May as purely grow
As the fleecy snow
That follows the Fall of the year.

A Place We Call Home

Moving is such hard work, but well worth it in the end. Here are a few pictures for those of you haven't seen it in person. We are so happy to call this home.

We have lived here for about 9 weeks. It's hard to believe that. Seems like we just moved! The packing and unpacking was a lot of work, and I've had enough of that for a long while. I guess that makes sense why I just can't bring myself to get out the Christmas decorations! I don't want to see anymore boxes.
