This year we decided to check out a tree farm we’ve never been to and it was so rainy and COLD. We were soaking wet and completely covered in mud!! I didn’t realize how cold it was going to be and how long it would take to get there, so by the time we arrived it was already getting dark and we were definitely not bundled nearly enough! Stormy and Everly were very serious about picking out the right tree, whenever we would ask “this one?”, one of them would always say no not THAT one! We were taking so long that it got too dark and we had to hike back and pick out one that was already cut because we couldn’t see them anymore (I know, totally lame), but we were just thankful to finally get one and get outta there so we could warm up! We got the kids their very first hot chocolate on the way home to celebrate, surprisingly Stormy didn’t like it but now Ev’s is hooked! I’m not sure how someone doesn’t like liquid chocolate, but Justin and I were happy to take over drinking it 😉 We woke up the next day to a gorgeous sunny day, ha! But we had so much fun and made memories that will last our lifetime, and that is definitely worth being a little cold and wet for a few hours. <3
Two weeks after Halloween, I’d say I’m a bit late to the party, but really I’m just so happy to have gotten a few pics. I never want to forget how adorable they looked in these costumes, Stormy would never take his off if it weren’t for the fact that it makes him too hot, he’s known he wanted to be a dinosaur since February! Ev’s was all over the place, she chose about 18 different things, including a mermaid, a knight, and a dragon; she finally settled on being a kitty cat and wearing last years costume again, which made things a lot easier! Halloween day was so dark and rainy that I only managed to get a couple of very low quality semi blurry pics, Justin and I both got home late and had to scramble to get them ready, I never even painted whiskers on Ev’s, and for the first time in as long as I can remember, Justin and I didn’t even dress up! 😯 I guess that’s what happens when Halloween falls a Monday right? Thankfully there’s always next year, I’m hoping to get these guys on board with a family theme, maybe Aladdin? (I got dibs on Aladdin). 😎
I really can’t believe this was 3 years ago! Sort of feels like a long time ago…that went by really fast? I had forgotten all about this silly little shoot I did and never even went through all the photos. My MIL found these adorable pea pod costumes and I just couldn’t help adding the carrots, I remember these guys kept swishing them around all over the floor with their arms so in most of the pics they are all in a bit of a pile, but luckily I was still able to get a couple good ones!
