How did Eli get so tired??

Because this is my 266th blog entry, I am shaking things up a bit. This a backwards glance at our Sunday!  After a long day at the Pumpkin Patch it wasn’t long before Eliana fell asleep on the long drive home.

Ana got to ride a horse!

I love this pic. She looks the same as she did last year when she rode Uncle Roger’s horse.

I don’t remember Sweetberry Farms being so dusty last year. But at the end of the day we were covered in dirt!  This picture will show you why. But because Eli is very creative and joyful she decided dancing in a dust storm is better than complaining about it!

Where does she get these moves?

Eliana loved the goats but was extremely ticklish to their inquisitive tongues!

Eli has freakishly long arms…

Posing for pictures is not Eliana’s spiritual gift!  This looks like Christmas card material, don’t you agree?

At the time it seemed fun to hide between JW and Hattie, but now it just makes my head look really small!  What you don’t see on the other side of this picture is the curious onlookers watching our makeshift photo shoot.  I don’t know why they were staring. It’s not like Harriett and I strategically rolled all those pumpkins around the haystack for our Smith family picture….

This shot is cute too although restraining Eli from leaping off my lap inhibits the full exhibition of her pumpkin patch couture! Oh well!

Now this shot is my absolute favorite of all!  This shot made the whole day worth it!  The tripods, the cameras, the hot rollers, the couture, the prayers for Eliana to nap on the way to Hattie & Pops’!  I love the technological advancements that made this shot possible. Maybe this should be our Christmas card?

  1. Looks like a day full of fun! Did you buy a pumpkin to decorate?

  2. We did! We bought her a baby sized pumpkin!

  3. I LOVE the photo of the 3 of you! Reminds me so much of how Cora photographs! If not Christmas card material, it is definitely rehearsal dinner slide show material. Looking forward to Friday!

  4. P.S. I'm the visitor from Galveston. . . not sure why. . .I'm at a Starbuck's on Brodie Lane!

  5. How fun! We went too and it was dusty. Eliana doesn't seem too bothered by it though :)

  6. You'd think she was getting tortured! And yet the dust storm brings her joy!

  7. Did Marley have dust in her eyeballs? Eli did!
