Been MIA

I've kind of neglected this blog recently. I just finished up my Digital Photography Simplified class over at ScrapGirls taught by Mary Elizabeth. I really enjoyed this class and the weekly assignments. It has kept me pretty busy.

We tried (unsuccessfully) to celebrate the October birthdays--DIL Sarah's on the 17th, mine on the 19th, and SIL Davids on the 23rd. Sarah wasn't feeling well so the dinner to celebrate her birthday was cancelled. We were going to all go out to dinner on my birthday but Granddaughter #1 woke up sick so her and her mother, dad and sister and brother were unable to join us. It was just Grandpa, Grandson #2 and son and DIL that went to Macaroni Grill for dinner. The pictures of J and J with his parents were taken after lunch.

We then planned on another dinner outing to celebrate the birthdays birthday on the 24th and we were all able to attend except SIL.

For the fun of it I went out last Saturday for one last day of fall pictures before the winds hit on Sunday and blew all the leaves off the trees. I posted one of the pictures I took on Saturday.

We spent the day at Howell Tree Farm today. The kids spent time playing in the corn crib, riding the tractors, climbing on the hay loft, feeding the goats, holding the rabbits, and going for a tractor ride. This is fall family tradition, and today was Jaren's first trip. The weather was beautiful, the mums gorgeous, and it was the busiest we've ever seen the place.

I created this layout tonight of a picture of our children and grandchildren. I used the October 2008 ScrapGirls club kit--Hearth, along with some other ScrapGirl supplies.

Headed out to Howell Tree Farm to spend the day

Today we are having a "family" day at Howell Tree Farm--one of our fall traditions. This will be Jaren's first visit. While waiting for time to go, I did this layout of Jaren with photos taken a couple weeks ago when he spent the

Playing with Panoramic Mode in Adobe Photoshop

Today Roger and I went to the Ledges. It was a beautiful day and we had lots of fun shooting pictures. I did a couple panorama shots and they turned out pretty cool.
