Fall and Senior Pictures

A few years ago, I started taking Senior pictures.  I started to save some money since I had two sons graduating the same year.  I took the pictures of my two boys, then one of their friends asked if I would do his for him.  After that I took pictures for one of my sons' girlfriend.  After that I also took my nieces senior pics and the son of a friend of mine. 

This year I had the honor of taking my nephew, Matt's, senior pics as well.  Next year I will be taking my daughter's pics too.  I thoroughly enjoy taking pictures for these kids who are getting ready to graduate and move on to adult-hood, college, career, or families of their own.  Below are a couple of the 145 pictures shot today.  Hope you enjoy them.

More Halloween fun!

I made this 3-D haunted house using the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge.  It was not too hard to make once I got all the pieces cut.  Some of the gluing was difficult but it turned out pretty cute!

Have I mentioned....

How much I just L-O-V-E Halloween?  Maybe once or twice, right? 

I recently took my grandson, daughter, son, and his girlfriend to the pumpkin patch.  We had a lot of fun picking out pumpkins, (7 of them!).

Here are a few pics of our trip there plus the pumpkin that my grandson, Franklin, helped to carve.  Well, he picked out the design, and I did the rest.

Halloween Decor continued....

You all got a chance to look at my Frankenstein I posted yesterday.  Today, I was able to finish Mrs. Frankenstein.

The picture below shows my grandson holding both Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein.  My grandson's name is Franklin so I told him that I made a special "Franklin-stein".

My grandson, Franklin, is 3 years old and Mr. Franky is almost as tall!  Well, not quite but you get the idea.  The rest of my day was spent cutting out leaves, trees, acorns, a 3-D turkey, and a few other things.

I never knew that my Daughter's project would be so much work for me!!! It's O.K. though because I love doing it!  Once all the decorations are done I will post a picture of the final project in all it's glory!
