Happy Halloween!

Random Fall Photos

Weekend before last we took a short trip over to Hood River to take a few photos and buy some apples at Drapers. Both Gabe and I were sick but we couldn't miss our yearly's been our fall tradition since he was a baby. Here's a few photos from the day:

Gabe has become quite the little poser lately. Not sure where that came from but I imagine it has something to do with the fact that I take a million pictures of him! Sorry don't stand a chance. lol

This isn't one of my best shots but I think it captures the "joy of discovery". It's candid and for a change Gabe was just being Gabe.

...and finally, the real reason we headed over the mountain. Fresh apples and pears from the orchard...there's nothing better than harvest time.

Early Birthday Party for Gabe

Even though Gabe's birthday isn't until Thursday we thought we'd have a small family get together yesterday. Who knows...I'm sure we'll probably drag this one out clear through next weekend by the time we get done with the school party and hopefully a little family party with Dave's family.
I wasn't thrilled with Gabe's cake but it was last minute and he didn't care what the lady whipped out for him at Walmart.

For those of you who don't know Tanner very well...this is his new style. He thinks it's cool and I think it's a disaster. It's only hair right?!?

...Jaron came down too...

...and this is how I get through family get togethers. Cheers!

Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday we took Gabe to the Central Oregon Pumpkin Co. This years theme was safari and the corn "maize" was pretty darn fun. This was my dad's first year going through the maize so he and my mom let Gabe and I drag them through to the end. It was tons of fun until the wind picked up and it got cold on us. Here are a few pictures of our adventures:

And the day isn't complete without a strawberry topped funnel cake and some carmel apples. MMMMM.

World Card Making Day Event at Citrus Tree

Today is the final day of the WCMD Event at Citrus Tree Studio. The Design Team has put together 10 really cool and very easy challenges for this event and as usual Cindy is rocking the give-a-aways for participating. Here are a few of my projects for this event so far...

I created this little ATC for Nicole's challenge about the time I enjoy spending with Gabe while Dave is on his trips. We have so much fun together!

...and finally a little altered notebook.

If you haven't stopped by Citrus Tree Studio lately, you still have time. Just pop in an say Hi in the check in thread and start creating!

Tanner's Buck

For someone who is just getting over a round of the swine sure didn't stop him from hunting. Tanner got another nice buck this year (4X5) despite a broken hand and the flu. He was pretty happy but it makes me wonder if he's going to get a let down when he shoots something smaller that a 4-point in the future. lol
