Fall Photo Shoot

I was driving home from work in Topeka last week and couldn't get over how pretty the light was.  As soon as I came in the door, I told Tim we HAD to get outside and get some pictures of our little cutie before the light was gone.  Fortunately, he already had her all dressed up cute (which I might add, this is an outfit Daddy put together all on his own! Pretty good I would say, way to go honey!)

Here is what we got!

dirt momma?

nope? OK, I will eat it...

I just got photoshop in my hands, so hopefully I can figure it out soon and you will see a difference in some photos!

Our little Peacock

Yep, these photos have been sitting on my camera for about a month.  I feel like November fly by and I barely had time to blink.  I was working full time at Forbes for a lot of the month so time at home was spent playing and cuddling not blogging.  As of now December is looking "fairly" quiet although as Christmas gets closer I am sure it will fill up quick!

For now here is our little girl all decked out Peacock style. (since I do realize Halloween was basically a month ago, I guess these are for the Grandparents to aww over)

I found the idea for her costume on Pinterest, and we did some tweaking from there.

enough hair for a pony!

she LOVED playing in the leaves

(the upload/edit on this did NOT come across well,  but ya get the idea)

and checking out her pumpkins!


what a joy!

Spook Parade

The 28th was the annual Spook Parade in Chanute.  Each year they have a trick or treat to the businesses on main street followed by a parade of the kids in their costumes.  It was one of Tenely's 1st outings last year (she was a spider) so we went back this year.  She isn't big enough to be in the parade, but we still dressed up to go and see the other kids.

We did only stay downtown briefly because we were still in the process of getting over our first bout with bronchitis.  Which, by the way, was NO fun;  the poor girl was one sick baby and it was hear wrenching.  We had a few rough days and nights, but now we are back to our silly self.

 Taking in the parade with her buddies!

Enough costume, time to be comfy with Dad!

As for Halloween, well it came and went.  We had high hopes, and then the pager went off, and then Daddy was out the door.  2 structure fires at once leads to a department wide recall...

So Tenely and I were off to do some trick or treating ourselves.  We had a good time and she was spoiled by all!  Tenley friendly snacks, books, books, and  books!  I love it, and so does she.  Added bonus, she can always look at/read her book and we are "good" parents.  No candy for her to want means we aren't the "mean" parents when we won't let her have it.  I wonder if that will still work next year...I have me doubts...  At any rate, we are awaiting a nice day that we are both home to re-create Halloween so that I can actually get some good photos of her in her peacock costume!  Stay tuned!

"Love your Baby"

This girl is so full of love already it melts my heart.  Her new thing (or in the last few weeks) is to give her Baby lots of "love" whenever we say, "love your baby."  So, so sweet,  and I see lots of babe dolls in our future.  The pictures aren't great, but you get the idea...and I will work on better photos.

And not to worry, Maggie gets the same love that the babe's do!  She is such a good sport about it and just lays there for Tenley to do as she pleases',  Hunter on the other hand heads for high ground.  He does well with her, but is kind of a grumpy old man and just hides or stays out of her reach.

Also, do you like our burp cloth scarf?  She spent the better part of an afternoon wearing this around the house.

Just Chillin'

She is always such a silly girl after a good nap and this day was no exception....

What a Goof!
