Wordless Wednesday – Halloween 2011

She loved trick or treating. She loved all the goodies that she collected. But most of all, she loved handing out candy to the other kids!  When there wasn’t anyone at our door, she was peering out of the windows and calling out “come to our door, we have lots of candy!”…and knocking on the door herself, hoping that if we opened it, there would be more kids on the other side.

When I found out that I would be working with Strider, I had this Read more […]

Our Fall Family Pictures

All pictures taken by the incredibly talented Elizabeth Fulton Photography. Read more […]
