Portraits of Thanksgiving


This has been one of the prettiest, most colorful fall seasons in our area.

My camera has been happily out of its case on a regular basis as we have enjoyed the activities of a busy and beautiful fall season.

A couple of weeks ago we had lunch with some friends and then enjoyed a short and refreshing, brisk hike up a small hill in our area.

The kids had a great time.

After reaching the top of the hill, they had leaf fights and the paparazzi was busily capturing every moment of a glorious fall day.

We have enjoyed some fun activities as a family this fall and our property provides a great creative outlet for my little camera.

Fun Fall Festival

Our church does a beautiful festival each fall and it's an amazing outreach to the community. Our little guys loved it and our older daughter enjoyed working in one of the booths.

There was this crazy lion there that totally photo bombed one of my pictures. HA!

The boys got their faces painted and loved playing games at several of the boothes.

It's been a great fall. It's hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week already. Where did the time go?

The leaves that graced us with their brilliant fall wardrobe, now stand bare against the sky and there is a new beauty of frosty mornings and woodstove fires, to enjoy.

Wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving season!

Remember to count your many blessings!
