Give Me Your Best Shot #16 ~ Pumpkin Picking!

Pumpkin Picking 2009 (& Give Me Your Best Shot)
We got to take the kids to the Pumpkin patch and we had a BLAST.
It was our family, my in-laws, and my sister-in-law with her boys.
It was SO hard to pick just one good shot, so I cheated and posted a few!

All the GA grandkids!

Someone put a lil' pumpkin in with the other pumpkins! Oh, it's just Ella!

Paul FINALLY found the perfect pumpkin!

Some creative shot, huh?

Credit goes the the hubby for this shot...I think it may have been accidental, but I love how it came out AND I got out from behind the camera!!

We went to a local Festival in our little town of Bethlehem. It was called the Star Festival.
There is just something about this shot that I adore. Can't put my finger on it though! I apologize for putting up yet another photo of one of my kids....y'all must be sick of seeing them! LOL.

Give Me Your Best Shot #14 - Mushrooms!

I"m back in the game for Give Me Your Best Shot over at Better in Bulk!
I tried my hand, err...eye? at shooting some mushrooms that had popped up on our lawn from 6 straight days of rain here in Georgia.

I'd LOVE some constructive criticism.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

My My....

We have been busy, busy, busy over here!
Pre-K started back in August.
Ella turned one in Sept.
The husband has been busy with working, doing online school, AND hosting a radio show during the week from 10-11pm EST (

With the little free time I have found, I've been frantically cleaning and organizing in between playing, cooking, and laundry.

I've also been busy with my hair clips! I had a last minute wholesale order for a School Spirit Store in MI.
Then I had an order for a gift basket full of hair clips. I was told the 2 year old recipient AND her parents LOVED it. I hope it leads to more sales!!

I have also FINALLY learned how to do a BOW. So now I have another style to add to my Etsy Shop!

I've gotten some great feedback on this style!
