Always Behind the Lens...

I love to take photos. I have thousands of photos organized on my computer. I want to learn how to take better photos. I would love to take a photography class. I consider this one of my hobbies. The problem (if it really is one) of loving to take photos is that I am always behind the lens. Now don't get me wrong - I am not looking to have photos of my self however I want Cooper to have photos of him and his momma. Memories of us for him...I digress. The reason for this post is to introduce Lindsey at L. Ann Photography. She just moved to the Denver area and is giving away a free FAMILY photo session. That's right - family! I'd be tucked in there right along with Coop and the hubs! How exciting. So keep your fingers crossed for me and I will let you know if I win.

Another fun event Lindsey is hosting is a photo shoot with Santa. For 35 bucks your little one gets their one photo shoot with the big man and mommas get 5 edited proofs delivered to you on a CD. WOW! Call Lindsey to reserve your spot on December 4th - I already did! Her number is 208-569-8740.

We were lucky this year. We got to dress up for Halloween three times! Because Cooper started roaring like a lion we thought that would be the appropriate costume for him and I have to say...he made one stinkin' cute lion!

We headed own to Phoenix to surprise Jason's brother for his 40th. SO MUCH FUN! It was a costume party and it seemed as if everyone dressed up for the occasion - there we some great costumes!

My mom had a delicious Chili dinner the night before Halloween and we all dressed up for that. It turned out to be a really fun night complete with pumpkin carving!

And of course Halloween. What a great evening we had. Complete with friends and candy!

Is It Really November???

Unbelievable! We all hear it and we all say it...time goes by SO fast. November 5th already. Wow! Our summer is over, however, you wouldn't know it here in Colorado - the weather has been AMAZING! Halloween is past and now we getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The leaves have fallen from the trees and Starbucks has now added Gingerbread Lattes to their menu (along with Pumpkin Spice - yum!). The sounds of football games on Sunday fill the house while a crock of Chili cooks throughout the day. Candles flicker and we cuddle up under warm blankets on the couch once we settle in for the evening to watch TV. Oh how I love this time of the year!
