Titles Are Overrated

Okay I have no kind of inspirational, witty, funny post for you today.  Intelligence is in short supply for me these days.  I had no idea that building a house takes so much time and brain-power even though I am not actually doing the work myself.  It should get a little less hectic now that we're in the process of picking out the things like bricks and granite and stuff and we've got our financing figured out and know we don't have to come up with any more money between now and closing.  Phew!

Anyway, since I'm totally lame and haven't got the ability to regale you with my stunning words, I'll leave you to enjoy a few pictures of the kids picking out pumpkins and visiting a friend's farm to ride horses. 

 (Yes, this is Jordan falling in poop and crying really hard.  I took a picture because I rock.)

(Ask a boy to smile and this is what I get.  Can't wait to embarrass him on prom night one day and capture that oh-so-sarcastic smirk riddled with as much attitude as his teenage self can muster... I'm sure it'll be not much different from this.)

I did an impromptu photo session with another one of the moms at the farm with her adorable 6-month old baby.  If I can get her permission, I'll post the photos because I firmly believe that no one should be deprived of the opportunity to gaze into this child's soulful eyes - it will make you a better and happier person.  Seriously.  It was fun - this Momma said she has few pictures of her with her baby and I know how much it means to have some Mommy 'n Me shots around... So it was really nice to be able to do that for them.  

I'm wrapping this up now; I'm on the hook for cookies for Jack's class Halloween party (is it nearly the end of October - WHAT?!) so I've gotta go get a-bakin' and a-decoratin' so we can carve pumpkins this evening (no post for tomorrow, after hours of piping icing and hours of intricate cutting on giant pumpkins I promise I'll have no hand-strength left)!

Love the poop shot. Also, I think it's funny that you are already putting Jack at prom night. Sad that it will probably be here before we all know it. Just like the end of October!

Hope we get to see the pictures you took.

Ha!! That is hilarious! And, so I can really live vicariously through you, will you post home-building shots?

You know, like granite choices and progress and stuff? Pretty please? :)

I love your idea of mommy and me...I have just decided that when I'm out and about with my camera, I'm gonna offer to take some photos of mama's with their kiddos! 'Cuz we DON'T ever get enough photos of us with them!

POOR JORDAN! Jack looks so much older! Love the photos, Mama! Take some photos of the cookies, kay? I have to figure out to make cake pops for the kids' classes AND not infect them with my cold (although it's been over a week). There's going to be so much hand-washing and sanitizing today...

The poop shot made me laugh! This is such a perfect fall post. I love how you took the pictures of the pumpkins with the light on them. Gorgeous. Hope you are feeling well!

Life is beautiful, isn't it? A new home and a new baby on the horizon... so exciting. Love how you live in each moment and love up your precious children.
