Thanksgiving in Boise

Dennis and I were lucky to head to Boise for Thanksgiving. We spent as much time with his family, including Saisha as we could. We also were able to see Jon & Tamara! Spending time with family is always time well spent! 

Saisha - cutie!

Jenny and I went black Friday shopping! I loved every minute of it!

Saisha and myself ... I guess I am usually the one behind the camera - but I do hold her as much as I can

Eric, Lenora and Saisha during our photo session!

Grandpa knows how to make Saisha smile!

The whole family! These pictures were hilarious to watch! Not all 4 members of this family were ever looking to the camera at the same moment!

And this picture is the best! Finally Pirra settled down enough to pose for a photo - but obviously Saisha was DONE!

Trip to visit Kim, Chloe and Sophie!

Also last year in October, I spent a weekend with my aunt Kim and my 2 cousins, Chloe and Sophie! We had a great time! Most of the pictures are ones that Chloe and Sophie took with my camera. I always think it is fun to see the world through the eyes of children!

October 2013

After Dennis and I had received some pretty sad news to us - we decided to get away for a weekend and just go wherever our car took us. It was such a wonderful weekend. Friday night, we didn't make it too far and Saturday we made it all the way to Brookings, Oregon. My favorite part was watching the sun set over the ocean. Getting away was just the thing that we needed for that weekend!

Beautiful Brookings, OR

Heading home via Hwy 101

So pretty!

A stop in Lincoln City

It was such a wonderful weekend to get away and to re-focus on us.
