Going to the pumpkin patch without Josh Downs sounded really lonely and really overwhelming so I called up Ross (my oldest son) and asked him if he'd come with us.
And since he said yes, I got to hang out with all four of the kiddos for the day...
As always, Courtney decided to give me a good laugh by trying to pick the biggest pumpkin around. (We have a "If you can carry it, you can have it" rule when it comes to picking pumpkins, but Courtney never gives up trying.)
The girls were all about getting quarters to feed the ducks and the goats.
Try as I may year after year, I can never manage to get a good picture of the bean bag toss.
It was however the first time I got a shot of one of the painted face-boards that I loved. (Thanks Courtney Lee for making it a good one.)
I know...I was shocked to see Cole's arm around Courtney too. (That kid is unpredictable to say the least.)
And everyone's picks...
And I'm sorry I'm late in posting the winner for the seat in my January Photographers' Workshop. (Life is just repeatedly kicking my tail right now so I haven't had time to read through all the comments yet to determine which are from military wives with deployed husbands and which are not.) Will get to it early this week though which means that all you military wives still have time to enter!
And if you're reading this Josh Downs...I'm sorry things are so hard right now.
