Fall 2009 Part 1

Last year was our first fall in Spokane, and I loved the leaves changing colors... (after living in Texas for the past 4 years I hadn't seen a whole lot of Autumn, and of course growing up in Alaska not too much there either) anyhow, I took a lot of pictures of the kids in the leaves. I liked those pics so much that we went back and took more this year. I love seeing how much the kids have changed in a year, although a bit bittersweet. These pics were taken 1 year and 4 days apart.

Such cute kids! Growing up too fast.

You have lots of big leaves there! Ours aren't quite that big here in NC.

Happy belated birthday Ella!! Gosh, it has been too long! Sorry I have not been by your blog lately. She has grown so much! Looks like you are all doing well. When did you go back to work?

Wow - it's amazing to see how much they've both grown in a year! What a fantastic idea - to do a shoot in the fall to see how they've changed over the past year!
Beautiful pictures and beautiful kiddos!

I love the pictures!! I found your blog through another Ella Graces blog. I found out you were from Spokane and couldn't wait to get your blog address. Beau was born in Spokane!! Can't wait to follow your story and maybe meet up one day!

Lori said...

Beautiful!! Your children are absolutely beautiful!

Gorgeous pics! Hunter and Ella look so much alike, too. I keep thinking that each of Samantha's ages is my favorite and that I don't know how the next could be better, but each age keeps eclipsing the previous one. Ella is definitely more and more beautiful with every age.
