The best of friends...

I wanted to take some pictures of Molly this afternoon since she looked so cute in her dress with her hair curled, and Jack wanted to jump right in. So...this is what I got. Sometimes it is really hard to get a good picture of the two kids together - one of them never wants to cooperate with us. However this time, it is priceless! I look at this picture and wonder where time has gone. They look so old today. I guess that is what life is all about - growing up!

The family...

Faces of Jack...

Jack snarfing down an apple that he picked all by himself at the orchard.
We found a great ladder in the middle of the orchard. Jack thought it was great, so he climbed up and tried real hard to pick some apples from the tree in front of him. He could get the limb, but no apple could be reached.
I got Jack to actually stand still long enough for me to have him pose for a picture with a smile. I love the color in this picture. Doesn't he look so old?
Jack has been attached to this Lowe's hat for some time now. He wears it everywhere. It is a bit too big for him, but all the better to pull down low and not be able to see his face is what I think he thinks is great about it. He loved running around the hay maze the orchard had set out.

Faces of Molly...

Molly dressed up for school photo day, which was not successful - she told them she did not know how to smile for the camera!
Molly walking through a corn field on her first ever school field trip to the local Christmas tree/pumpkin farm.

We have had a lot of fun the last couple of weeks with all the fall activities. I have not had time to post and blog about it all, so to take some of the pressure off, I thought I would just post some pictures of the kids in all the various outings. The weather has been wonderful. The trees are beautiful. We are enjoying the last days of warmth before the cool of the winter sets in and we are indoors most of the time.
