My good friend Annie got married the last weekend in August so we spent the weekend in the NoVa area participating in wedding festivities. My friend Waverly made the little hat Helen Jeanette is modeling in the first 2 pictures!IMG_1733 IMG_1726 IMG_1714 IMG_1711 IMG_1709 IMG_1702



I have always been a summer girl but since getting pregnant with Helen Jeanette I’ve found myself much more appreciative of cool spring mornings and crisp autumn days. I think it would take more then an extra 40 pounds or so to make me a winter person, but that day may come. Last year I don’t even remember being aware of the fall season since I was 100% immersed in life with a new born, but this year I’ve been very excited about fall. Chris is going to be traveling to Germany soon and will miss 2 weekends out of October in Durham so we decided to pack in a visit to our local pumpkin farm this afternoon. We didn’t quite get the beautiful pumpkin patch pictures I had hoped for but we had a good time and I’m happy with the pictures we got!

The pictures of her in her halloween dress were taken at the house the other day. My mom made this dress for one of my cousins and now it has been handed down to Helen Jeanette.
