OK, so the proud momma of these two dynamos is from Texas, but they are here for awhile and living it up!  You know the saying “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could”, well, it is my hope that is exactly how they will be feeling one day.

M & M are charming to the Nth degree and it doesn’t surprise me a bit.  Their mom has been impressing me since we were teens.  I absolutely love her, look up to her and just like to be around her any time that I can.  I have several from high school days that are on a mental list of mine, because they  are just simply remarkable women.

I have to thank Facebook for allowing me to see people that I am not close with in real life, but get to watch/stalk from a far.  I am not a creeper, I promise.  PROMISE! I just truly get drawn to people that are wickedly smart, solid, honest, loving people.  I am blessed that I am surrounded with people just like this in real life, too, but the world opened even further through social media and I love it.

By writing this, I am spurred to send them a note.  I do think it is important to acknowledge others and hopefully they will be thankful and not “unfriend” me/be creeped out.  I am going to hope for the positive. Ha!

 

This is a wonderful family that I know and love.  They have certainly seen us at our worst, HA!  They live by the lake and throughout the summer they open their door to us when we are tired, dirty lake rats.  Their love for each other is impressive and talk about a good looking bunch, man!

We finally got to meet after having to reschedule once for cold and rain.  Just as I was pulling up, a HUGE dark cloud loomed, but sure enough, it pushed on by.  It was a great session in such a cool little pocket park….thanks for the find Mrs. C!

 

So, I was able to upgrade my camera a few weeks ago and am in love.  Real love, hot, fresh and steamy!  I have been chomping at the bit to get out and really use it.  USE IT….not with dogs that will never stay, not with a husband that turns away and not with kids that look like they never brush their teeth or hair.

So, I did what a desperate portrait photographer and mom does…I paid my kids to head out into a field that has “haunted” my dreams.  Don’t mind the fact that it is adjacent to our subdivision’s convenience store, but I drive by it at least four times a day.  I have planned to take pictures of the kids there for months, but each time I thought I could squeeze it in, they’d mow the darn thing.

Well, the wait was worth it.  There is not much of Fall here, so it became the perfect spot to give the Fall vibe as the yellow flowers started to bloom and the grass turned brown.  It’s my version of wheat, OK?  Wheat equals FALL, right?

So here you go….my kids in the local Fall glory….next to the Shell station.  It only cost me $7.00, too!
