In early October, the Omelans came for a visit.
Despite appearances, we did do more than just drink wine!
The next weekend Jenelle and I went to an event in Seattle that she had been looking forward to for a long time!
A Miranda Sings show!
It's too hard to explain...you should look it up here!
The young girls at the concert acted in a way that I imagine they would have years ago at the Beatles.
My eardrums were bleeding!!
Next came Homecoming for Hannah and her friends.
Yep...all just friends!
First Jenelle helped me see whether this was a good spot to take pictures...
Next was Halloween -
This is how they used to spend Halloweens just a few years ago...
Hannah still spent it with Jack and his family on a visit to the WSU campus.
Cold and miserable, but she loved the college campus experience anyway.
Ivan stayed in and volunteered to hand out candy...
A hobo and a bag of jelly beans...
Of course Autumn is also about leaves and cats who couldn't care less.
And last but not least - Thanksgiving!
Great meal and FINALLY...a picture for our Christmas card that included all of us.
During the day I was trying to find a place inside the house with the right lighting and right camera settings for a photo.
The kids were happy (for the most part) to be subjects of my shoots!
And obviously "their" shooting as well!
No great pictures from inside the house...but fun memories!
Now we're looking forward to making Winter memories!
