This week, Cece and I boarded a big yellow school bus with her teachers and classmates and had a delightful morning at Minnetonka Orchards. I took very similar photos with my phone as last year! Kind of fun to compare though. We did not pick apples, but we did go on a hayride, listened to… Continue reading Apple Orchard Field Trip 2015
I don’t know what got into me (probably too many pumpkin spice lattes), but I thought that a glitter art project would be a great idea and Cece was only too happy to go along with it. So while Rosie napped, Cece and I moved our art supplies to the backyard and began Project Glitter… Continue reading Glitter Leaf Garland
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” -Anne of Green Gables Our weekend was mighty peaceful and relaxing. At least it was for me. Joe was summoned up to the cabin to help get things winterized (wood splitting, dock removal, etc.) While he got all sweaty and dirty, I had… Continue reading Cabin + October
The past few weeks have me convinced that September just might be my favorite month of the year. Even if it’s not my birthday month.To me, it felt like experiencing fall and summer at the same time. The beginning of the month had days so warm that the girls were still in bathing suits hitting… Continue reading September Highlights
Here we go again! Cece is off to further her education as she is starting four-year-old preschool this week and is extremely excited about it. She was even super enthusiastic about school shopping and selected her new backpack (Doc McStuffins), her new shoes (Peppa Pig, even though we don’t watch the show), and her new… Continue reading First Day of School!
Last week Cece and I went on a very memorable date to her first open skate! I had been going by myself recently, just to stretch out these old legs. Then she told me that she wanted to come along and there was no way I could refuse that request. Fortunately, my brother was able… Continue reading Cece on ice!
Howdy! I hope your Halloween was filled with all good things. (As in, I mean I hope your treat bags were filled with Kit Kats and Reese’s. And not a bunch of candy corn.) This certainly wasn’t the warmest Halloween on record. However, we managed a few outdoor photos of the… Continue reading Halloween 2014
Cece and I have a shared love of holidays, decorating, chocolate, and getting our friends together. So I decided to host a small Halloween party yesterday morning. We squished our friends in our house like sardines in a can and made them have fun with us. (Literally squished. Five toddlers, five infants, and parents. We’ll get a… Continue reading A Teeny Halloweeny Party
What life looks like according to my phone photos lately: Our festive kitchen table. (Can you spot the bite marks on the shiny pumpkin from last year?) Carving pumpkins at Grandma Michele’s. I think the face on the left sums up how Cece feels about pumpkin guts. Goodness. Those cheeks… Continue reading October via iPhone
Fall family photo season is in full swing! It’s been such a cool experience to be photographing some families for the second or even third time. I’m also very appreciative for the families who haven’t worked with me before but are giving me a shot. Thank you to the Avery family for a fun and fresh… Continue reading The Avery Family
