Busy November has come and gone and December starts this week. I have failed to update my blog for this entire month. November always starts our family holiday rush and this Thanksgiving season I am so thankful to have such a wonderful family to have that holiday rush with. The Lord has truely blessed me with such wonderful family and friends and I feel that blessing each day and with each memory we share. Tonight as I sit upstairs in the quite, as the kids have gone to bed and I listen to it rain, I decided no time like now to play catch up on my blog. It is my thearpy in a whirlwind life (which is why at times I tend to ramble on).

My best friend is getting married. My little brother that is. One day I will have to let him grow up and I guess that day is here. Friday night he proposed to Juliana. I will have to post more pictures when I get them. He has really found a wonderful girl. So though I maybe should be a little sad that my BABY brother has to grow up I am so happy that he has found such a wonderful God fearing girl with good strong morals and values that I am so proud to have as my sister.

Pictures and fall being two of my favorite things we decided to try for a cute fall picture today. As always this becomes quite a feat when photographing my own 2 children. They never seem to sit still, look, smile or mind at the same second. And with them a second is all you get. I've learned that no matter how bad I would love that perfect shot that sometimes our cutest pictures just happen. And even the not so cute... well they end up cute. Because they make such vibrant memories. The expressions I see my kids make I can tell you exactly what is about to happen next from the pictures I catch. Try as she might Caroline is very hard to photograph. She is not one you can pose you have to have the magic of a professional to get that perfect shot of her. Or sometimes luck is on your side or make that the power of God. If she is looking, she's not smiling and if she's smiling then she's not looking. That's just my sweet little Caroline. Carson on the other hand is very photogenic and not that hard to capture a good shot of. That is if you can keep him still long enough. So today most photogenic goes to Carson. My sweet little boy that loves his mommy so much.

I had to share these quick shots I took this morning while we were getting ready for church. We all are familiar with the rush on Sunday mornings...I haven't figured out why it is so much more hectic to get ready on Sunday mornings than any other morning. Any ideas on that one? Anyway ever thankful that in our hectic morning rush my little busy boy now finally will take a 5 minute break to be mesmerized by cartoons. When I peeked around the corner to check on him this is what I saw. Does it really start this early? Is is genetic for all males to have an attachment to the remote? Caroline loved to play with the remote as well as Carson, but if he is found sitting still watching tv the remote will be sitting with him.
