I think if we had kept at it, we could have gotten a cute picture because it's such a cute scene with the pumpkins. Unfortunately, this was while we were packing up to go home and we couldn't spend the time necessary to get the perfect shot.
This was the best picture I got of the boys this fall. I don't even care that Quinn's not smiling. I'm just glad he's not crying or crawling away or sucking his paci - I could keep going of all the things he could be doing that would make for a not so cute picture. I'm choosing to be thankful for the picture I got - you gotta be with three little boys!
I just love fall pictures. There are so many cute options for taking pictures of children in the fall. Playing in the leaves, sitting in front of pumpkins, standing in front of a beautiful, colorful fall tree, dressed in cute halloween costumes. I wasn't greedy this year, because I knew it would be difficult to get all those pictures with my boys. I just wanted one great picture. It didn't happen at halloween because I was out of town and Jeremy did fall festival on his own and didn't get around to taking pictures. It didn't happen with the leaves because we don't have enough trees in Texas to produce enough leaves to play in. It didn't happen with pumpkins because I waited too long to buy them - did you know that they don't sell pumpkins after halloween? I didn't, and I think that's really dumb. I mean, it's still fall - you've still got a whole other month to use fall decor. Anyway, Thanksgiving at the cabin was my last chance. There were leaves to play in AND a pumpkin scene. I posted the best picture from each photo shoot. It probably would have been funnier to post all the pictures that didn't turn out. The grumpy, crying, crawling away ones. The tear-streaked, frowny, are we done yet pictures. I'll keep those pictures because it makes me cherish this one all the more.
