So when I stopped by Mom's in the morning, she was making these to hang on the doors. I scored one for my front door. Which is probably about the only x-mas decorating I plan on doing.
Okay, not the only decorating I did. Look ~ I put the tree up! It consists of a whole 24 inches of silver and white lights. I am actually afraid to put any decorations on it because it might just fall over. I am just not in the mood this year to dig the big tree down from the attic. I know you need at least some kind of tree for Santa to leave "big" packages under. So for now, this is going to have to do! And, I actually kind of like the simplicity of it all. Even though the kids have a different opinion about it - it is growing on them though.
I also think he his getting sick and coming down with a cold...Tis the season.

As I walked out onto the porch and the frigid air hit my face, I looked about the trees and wondered where have all the leaves gone? I cannot believe autumn is done and winter is in the air. But, I won't (and you can't make me) talk Christmas until we celebrate Thanksgiving.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” ~ Elliott Erwitt
This is one of my most favorite images from the season. I even had it made into a 16 x 20 to display above my bed. It has such a calm, serene feel and that light is just amazing to me. It's one of my most favorite things about photography - I love being able to collect the light. I am a proud collector of light and it brings me great peace and joy and I am thankful this holiday season for that.
I love how the land changes so much from winter, to spring, to summer, and to autumn... it's beautiful to see the work which goes on. Definetely all the more to believe in a higher power above.

I am really behind on blogging, but I have been posting a lot of Lizzie lately. It's not that I do it on purpose it's just because he does not want anything to do with picture taking these days. So, this is a good time to post about this football season. Here are a few of my favorites of him.
In case you are wondering, he is No. 12 in the blue jersey. Twelve is his lucky number and he was super excited to get it back again this year. Especially when the coach told him at equipment handouts to make sure you pick out a number you like because it is one of the most important parts of playing football. And, speaking of the coach, he was Coy's favorite. He was so motivational and was always praising the boys and keeping them pumped up. That's him below giving Coy some direction. And, trust me when I say this, Coy needs lots of direction.

I love how she loves these boots and how they end up in almost every picture we take.
Mostly, I just LOVE her.
Happy (crazy) Friday to you all!!!

I spent yesterday after work, seeking the light and found it. I walked down the driveway and watched it cascade from the sky, washing across the forest on both sides of me; lighting up the world. It was a scene of wonderment; and the display of the cycle of life. I absolutely love this time of year.
I love finding the beauty in little corners of my world. It just amazes me what you can find when you just go looking for it.
