The Christmas Pictures

I wanted pictures in front of the Christmas tree for Emerson's Christmas picture this year.  So I moved the couch and brought in a little table for Emerson to sit on and had some fun.  Emerson is hilarious when taking pictures now.  He doesn't know how to be serious.  I am always happy when I end up getting a good picture because I never know how they are going to turn out. 

Here are a bunch of my favorite that I got this year. (the thumbs up is his new favorite thing to do in pictures)

The Little Tree

Emerson gets a little tree in his room during the Christmas season, so today we made some decorations to go on it.  For the decorations we made a paper chain and some paper snowflakes.  He had such a fun time making the decorations.
 He wasn't really able to cut the snowflakes, so after attempting himself, he just told me where to cut.
 Here he is in front of his tree with his many silly faces.  He just cracks me up!

Fall Leaves

 I was driving down the road today and looked over and the sidewalk was covered with leaves that had recently fallen from the trees.  So I asked Em if he would be good for pictures in the leaves and he agreed.  So, I just pulled off to the side of the road and took these cute pictures.  I love how cooperative he is sometimes.  He is such a fun kid to have around.  I am completely in love with this sweet boy.
Apparently he got cold and this is the only way he could get warm.  So he sat there like this until I said that we can go.  He is so funny.
Happy FALL!

Keep Calm and Thank On

I was wanting a Keep Calm sign for Thankgiving that was about thanking.  After looking a bit, I decided that I would just make one.  I love that it focuses on what I really should be doing during this season.

You can download them too.  Just click on the color link below for color you want to download.

My Test Subject

I have the cutest son.  I made him come out with me to test some place to photograph, and he was the best sport.  It was freezing and very bright, but he still listened and went along with all my craziness.  I am so grateful that he is occationally willing to be the model for me because I absolutely LOVE the moments I am able to capture.  I will be able to cherish them forever.
Aren't those big brown eyes to die for?

The Bats

So today, I started putting away all the Halloween decorations. I told Emerson that he should say "bye bye" to the bats because they were going away until next year. He immediately got the sadest look and started bawling. Then said "I don't want the bats to go. I love them." Then continued bawling for about 5 minutes. I finally convinced him that they are going to have to go no matter what and asked him if he wanted to help them go bye bye. So he sat and took them down one by one and put them away.

I had no idea that he was so attached to these bats. He is such a sweetheart.

Here He Comes to Save the Day...

 Meet Captain Emerson.  The silliest super hero of Halloween. 
 He is always ready for anything...even if he gets in a silly mood.
 Oh no...It is time to fight the imaginary bad guys.
 First, he sneaks in to the situation.
 Then, he fights them off.
 Then, he flies away.
 Leaving the bad guys all banged up.
 That is enough for silly Captain Emerson for one day. 
He is the super hero that I would choose to fight off any bad guys for me.
Have a SUPER Halloween!

Fall Subway Art

Here is my new Subway Art for Fall/Thanksgiving time.  Feel free to download it for yourself too.

People have asked me about printing.  I make these in a 16x20 format.  You can print them as an 8x10 too.  I print mine at Costco on the luster/matte paper.

Costume Sneek Peak

Emerson's costume this year is finished, and has already made an appearance!  However, pictures were not taken, so ya'll are just going to get the sneek peak until next time he puts it on. 

I was in love with this costume from this point and just fell more in love once it was finished and on him. 

Now you all can just sit and wait at the edge of your seats for the real thing.

Halloween Apples

I love halloween.  It is such a fun holiday to decorate for and to celebrate.  I have been making Emerson's lunches "Halloweeny" this week.  Today I cut up apples and used halloween shaped cookie cutters to remove the core.  Emerson thought that this was great.
