Where oh where...

If summer flew by, fall has been nonexistent. Not really, but it's been a whirlwind of activity. From band and competitions to senior pictures, a wedding and a collage tour, I'm not sure if I'm coming or going. Oh yeah, and a quick roadtrip with my dad. Time is just slipping by for my senior this year and as much as I love the young man he's turned into, I miss my little boy. Please don't slips away in a heartbeat.

So as another day/month closes, 3 beautiful sunsets from the last 3 months.

September, around the corner from the house and letting a teenager drive me, so that I could hop out quick to capture it as it was fading quickly.

October, on my way home from a long weekend at Emmaus, God gave me a special gift. Again, pulling over quickly as the light fades. (I'm good at this!) :)

And finally November, just last week, in my backyard. I think I left dinner on the stove to run out to the back field to grab this gem.

Fall 2014, pt 2

The one thing I love about Old Stone Fort Park is that you can hear the water way before you can see it! The roar of the falls draw you like a fly to the light. Always looking for a better view, peaking through the trees.

Continuing down the path, you look for that tiny glimpse that will show you the big picture.

And when you find

It never gets old.

Even when it's raining.

But all good things must come to an end...that doesn't mean I was finished with pictures! :)

I really don't think this bridge would have popped as much had the sun been out! The rain and cloudy weather really did make the colors magical.

DSC_2866 web

It's amazing to know that just down the river and around the bend is an amazing waterfall! It appears so calm.

All good things must come to an end. Until next fall...

Fall 2014

As we start January...much the same way December turned out to be...wet/rainy, I will remember our beautiful fall. I was sorry to see it go. And for once, it seemed to last for weeks.

DSC_2585 web

We went to the mountain one day and were just either at peak or just past peak. Either way, it was beautiful.

DSC_2579 web

Stone door was just lovely.

Laural falls

We made 1 last stop...and it's one of my favorite, peaceful spots.

Happy 2015!

I really, really, slacked off last year. My resolution this year is not to let time get away from me and to post AT LEAST once a week. It should be more than that, but ya gotta start somewhere! I'm pretty sure if I look at my stats from last year and the previous years, I will have posted almost half as much as previous years. That's sad. So, my goal will be once a week and if I'm lucky or ambitious, it'll be more!

I took some beautiful fall pictures...that will be my next post!

Fall 2013

Fall is quickly leaving us. We've had amazingly beautiful colors and I will be sad to see it go.

Someday I hope to be lucky enough to have a driveway like this one! So beautiful any time of the year, but more so in the fall!

potts-0088 web

I just love the barn!

potts-0089 web

Way in the distance, you can see the deer crossing sign...perfectly placed!

potts-0092 web

Just beautiful!

It was supposed to be a simple family shoot. And as we began, I remembered what it was like to have an 18 month old...that would not cooperate for pictures. :) Any other time and they are a ham for a that we're "officially" doing pictures, all bets are off! What was my first clue you ask?...

potts-0005 web

And it continued from here. But all in all, as quick as it was, we did get some good shots.

potts-0036 web

Because how can you not with smiles like this?!

potts-0036 web1

And because I love a good black and white...

potts-0034 web

All she wanted was a picture with her dolls...and how can you say no?! (I just love her boots with the plaid shirt!)

potts-0034 web1

Love it as a black and white!

potts-0002 web

And not to be forgotten was this beauty! She stood still for a couple cute ones.

We did finally grab a few family shots also...

potts-0014 web

Because sometimes words can say it all!

potts-0015 web

I just love her expression!

potts-0010 web

As quick as it was, I think we took some good memories!

potts-0007 web

And just because I can, I flipped it for a different (but same) view. :)

Fall and football

Fall and football go hand in hand. I was asked to come take a few pictures of a friends boy as he played. Since I had not been to a youth game, I thought why not. Boy did I get some good action shots. Something she'll treasure forever, I'm sure.

I hope it's something they all remember...especially after hearing one state just banned hand shaking after all sports because too many fights were breaking out. That breaks my heart.

Worn out after running for a touchdown!

His brother is one of the coaches.

I really like how this turned out. I know she does too.

So much to do, so little time

Has anyone else wondered WHERE the heck November went?! Granted we're only 3 weeks in, but THANKSGIVING is in 2 days! Which means it will be Christmas in 30+ days. Oh my! I have to say though, that I am about done with everything! I have a few uploads to do yet, but I am so far ahead compared to last year! And so thankful. We had a beautiful Thanksgiving Community church service the other night and I've been packing food boxes...which my boys helped deliver tonight. I am so thankful and so proud of how far we (and they) have come.

The ONE and only "good" shot of Mr Pissy Pants!

That my kids don't always co-operate with me! All I needed was 30 minutes, start to finish, including the drive, to get the couple shots I needed. His comment was "just use last years picture"...right, that works.

DSC_0014 web

I think this picture is hilarious...and may just use it on our Christmas cards! Ha! I also noticed his "hair horns"...that 'plains everything!

Fall 2012, part 3

Just a few more to finish up fall...we're already counting the days until spring... and hoping for a warm winter!

I need to remember carrots the next time we take a drive!

DSC_0102 web

I just love this barn...I've taken many pictures of it...all different.

Going to work early one morning...

Oh beautiful day...Happy Sunday! (I hope you set your clocks back or you're gonna get to church early! ;)

Fall 2012, part 2

Fall break was last Thursday/Friday. Me, being the "evil" mom, forgot to make dentist appointments that were long overdue, so they only had early appointments. Muhahaha...7:30am...20 miles from here = the little darlings are NOT happy to be getting up early on their day off! Not my problem. Actually once they were up and moving, they were fine. And it could have been worse, there were quite a few kids already there, so that means they have even EARLIER appointments! Mental note taken! :)

We took the backroads home...after I took the little darlings to the grocery store with me...geez, what a big mistake! I hate wasting a trip to town though without doing several things, so I was sorta screwed. They got donuts out of me. ;) Anyway, as we're cutting cross country, we passed several cotton fields that had been picked. Continuing on, one of them noticed a huge lake in the distance...a lake I never know was there. And you could see it moving with the wind. So we took a detour.

DSC_0071 web

Turns out it was a "lake of cotton"!

DSC_0084 web

We had to find a place to turn around and found this gem.

What a great couple hours boys...something I'll treasure!
