We finally did it! We got a family photo. I tried all California trip long to get one… and we came so close, but now, we finally did it… and best yet: in one shot and with halloween decor! 🙂 Last year Alex took M to a pumpkin patch on his time with her. She still talks about it (all year round) and had a total blast. I’m not incredibly bummed that I missed out, it’s part of how the whole life thing works, but I am super happy that we’ll be celebrating halloween as a family of three this year. Halloween is my favorite holiday after all! Give me all the ugly pumpkins 😉

  1. Oh wow! It's so strange seeing pumpkins in sand! (Says the Midwestern girl.) Adorable family photo. 🙂

  2. and i thought i was the only one who felt like she has zero photos of her family. whyyy is it so hard!??! (yours turned out to be perfection!)


  3. Orange is my very favorite color, though I can't wear it much, so you can imagine I love thie time of the year! 🙂

  4. Congrats on the family picture! It is adorable! I have never been a huge fun of orange but my brother used to love orange everything! Literally everything he owned was orange and he wore only orange every single day. Including little adorable Orange Chuck Taylors. So cute. I never quite understood it.He loved Halloween though.

  5. I am also not a big fan of the color orange, during the fall/halloween season is the only time orange is acceptable. Usually in the form of pumpkins. 🙂
