This photo shoot has been rescheduled since July and we all decided it HAD to happen last Saturday rain or shine or we would be doing a family photo shoot in snowsuits. Turns out we did it in the rain in about 15 minutes. Fast and furious style….guess we better start planning next year’s photo in March. Thanks McGregors for letting us drag you out on a cold rainy Saturday morning to take our pictures!

M- spoils of her trick or treating. We told her she could pick 7 things and have one each day after lunch for a week. Shockingly she passed over all the mini chocolate bars for lollipops and rockets. ROCKETS!!! I traded those out first thing back in the day. Confiscating most of her candy does make me feel a bit like a Halloween grinch but she’s new to the candy eating game and she seemed 98.9% fine with the deal.

N- Fails to see the joy in costumes/teeth growing.

The title of this post makes me realize there are only 9 weeks left in this year. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?! That is seriously blowing my mind. Now onto the photos.

M- Somebody is pretty pleased with their Halloween costume. Even her peon(s) seem impressed.

N- She WILL do the mission impossible to save that stroller from it’s death cage.

Guess which member of our family was stuck in bed fighting the flu/pneumonia this week? This guy right here…me. Thankfully it was not the baby but man is it hard to take care of the baby (and everyone and everything else) from bed. I am so thankful for our family who stepped in and helped us survive last week. As it is hard to take photos from your death bed I got TeePee to snap a few on Sunday with his phone.

M- A quiet moment before morning ballet class. Finally on the mend and ready to participate in life outside.

N- She will rock and shush that baby cat until the end of time….after all she learned from the master.

M- and finally after 6 days of fighting pnemonia…a smiling face.

N- making her own indoor fun…brushing teeth (obsessed), dancing in socks…NOT pants, because clearly putting on pants is a buzz kill.

M- You count and then find me…I’m hiding behind this wall.

N- Apparently peekaboo or as she calls it “HIYA!” is the happening around here.

We packed up the car, the kids, and the dog for what turned out to be a four hour drive into a rainstorm for a wedding this weekend. Magically the rain stopped long enough for the outdoor ceremony, reception and impromptu dancing circle to Total Eclipse of the Heart.

M- A moment of quiet amongst the running, dancing, and icing licking.

N- A small girl in a tutu on a forest walk.

The one thing we did not bring was our camera….I seriously need to dust that guy off for next weeks portraits….it’s been far too long.

M- With much encouragement she has been stepping outside her comfort zone and making friends with strangers at the park…growing up as a super shy kid I couldn’t be more proud.

N- A solemn swinger….If I was going to create a species, I’d make them born WITH teeth.
