seriously? are you jealous or what?
i've been dying to take family pictures before all the leaves fall off the trees.
but i don't think it will happen, because the leaves are leaving their trees.
we are still taking family pictures this week just like every other family on the planet- leaves just may not play a part in them.
so i decided to make up for it by letting jane "play" in her first leaf pile.
a leaf pile formed from the leaves that used to be on my happy window tree that are now on the ground.
she was obviously only really interested in finding the biggest leaf of them all and stuffing it into her mouth. and i couldn't get her to smile because she was too busy being absolutely bewildered by the bed of leaves that were suddenly taking over her life. but i still think these pictures are pretty dang cute.
the mini leaves photoshoot happened on our way home from church so all the families who were walking past us to get into their apartments were probably a little turned off by the fact that we were kicking a bunch of the leaves into a pile and then plopping jane right in the center of it and taking pictures.
it is what it is.
so anyways, hopefully family pictures end up happening this week because i already bought jane a new outfit for them. i bought it online while my husband was gone- without telling him. and in the moment i always tell myself he won't figure it out and i can get away with it but then i always end up blurting it out to him and getting a gentle yet firm stare down. this particular instance i was walking out the door to go somewhere when i blurted out:
"i have a confession..."
"what did you buy?"
he said in a here we go again kind of tone.
disclaimer, i really don't buy very many things. I'm not a spender. in fact, I'm more frugal than jeff on most things. he just knows that most of my "confessions" have to do with money. mostly because he has 2-3 "confessions" a day too. what I'm trying to say is, the word confession in our house translates into either "i bought jane a new outfit"(me) or "i bought taco bell and a candy bar today on campus" (jeff)
but really, she needs a new outfit because its becoming winter and she will freeze in those summer-y little rompers. (my excuse is always better than his)
