It's Official

That's right. 
It's official...that Fall is my new favorite season. 
;)
Today after church, we went to a pumpkin patch in a beautiful part of Oklahoma. 
Almost every adult had a camera in hand...and I couldn't help but ask an employee to take our picture, too. 
P.S. Joey's shirt is red, not pink. {Not that he doesn't own pink shirts!} The red checks are just small.
Sissy and I were feeling the circles. :)
Oh how I wanted to pick up this horse, put him in my pocket and take him home!!! I think my hand is embracing him a little too tightly - ha ha! 
I'm a serious horse lover, and one day, I WILL own a few - if it's the last thing I do!
 Here I am last Friday when we fed our favorite neighborhood horses. 
*I love you, Coco! Stay strong until I come back with more apples.* 
Grayson said, "Let's sit right here and take a pick-chur." 
Yes! Now you're catching on, son!
I love the juxtaposition captured in this picture below. 
On one side, you have a 4 year old...full of energy...sticking out his tongue...life ahead of him.

On the other side, you have a man who indulges in a rest...back slouched...most of life behind him. 
I bet he was a lot like Grayson many years ago...
May your Halloween be safe and special. 

And, as always, thanks so much for reading.

Until next time,

Looks like your family had a great time!! Love the coordinated outfits -especially your oversized polk-dotted top & boots. Fall is such a fun time to be outside with your family. Hope you have a great week!

Glad to see you posting again. The photos are beautiful and so is your family. I love the photo with the old man, how beautiful and sad at the same time.

What I love the most is the smiles on everyones faces. YOUR making some sweet memories and pictures that the littles will love and cherish forever. The sweet fill in moments in life are often some great things later on. JUST loved it. YOU have a beautiful family... HUGS and you are blessed my friend.

Your babies are growing up Meredith...they're adorable! YOU look fabulous...love the polka-dots! You're JUST getting on the Fall bandwagon girl, lol!! We use to board horses when we had our farm in the country...they are regal...BUT! That's another story I'll have to blog about, whew is all I can say, lol! You crack me up, because my daughter(when she sees something adorable), also says she can "put it in her pocket and take it home"...too funny! Have a good one! xoxoxo

Rea T said...

how awesome! looks like you guys had so much fun meredith!!
fall is my favorite season too!
It makes me feel calm & cozy because of how everything around me changes. The trees & the flowers changing to pretty colors...
the falling colorful leaves on the ground & how it is blown away by the wind...or how crispy it is when you step on it...
wearing cozy soft sweaters...then scarf, leggings & boots...
and on and on...

huggies♥

Beautiful sister. I am always coming here seeing if you have written. Your heart is so lovely.

Love all the pumpkin patch photos! Fall is such a special time of year. I LOVE horses too! I grew up horse back riding and always wanted to have my own. Now my only hope is if Olivia asks her dad for a pony one day and he caves!

Crystal Green said...

I totally love all the pictures! Your entire family is very photogenic. Thanks for sharing them with us.

I was raised with horses until I was 20 years old. I'm itching to own another one again one day, but that is going to be after I get my kids older and/or I make more money. Which ever one comes first! It cost on average about $400 a month to properly take care of a horse. It's an expensive hobby, but oh so worth it!

Lovely and fun family photos! Your kids look so sweet!

What a gorgeous day to take photos! By the way, I'm not sure you got a haircut, but it looks different and I love the look! Very sleek and chic!
