Great read for any parent!

As a parent of an almost 3 year old, I'm constantly wondering if I'm doing the right thing. This is such a great article!

Random nature photos

I loved this tree. It gave off the best shadows. It also entertained my son who was sure that Chip n' Dale lived there. We had such a fun time in the back yard!

And so begin the holidays....

We had a nice but sad Thanksgiving. My dad was such a big presence so to not have him here on one of his favorite holidays truly sucked. At least we got to spend some time with our family (his family) and that always makes us feel closer to him.

For Thanksgiving weekend, my family and I went to Cape Cod or "the Cape" as we call it here in MA. It was great to get away with our son. They had some Christmas events going on in the area on Saturday. Unfortunately, we missed Santa's arrival but we did manage to see Mrs Claus. Jack was so excited. We also went to the tree lighting. It was so much fun. Here are some photos taken at Thanksgiving and our weekend away.

There's just a hint of color left. Winter is coming and I'm one of the few who is looking forward to it. Winter may be an inconvenience to many but I find it to be exciting (driving in a blizzard), peaceful (watching the snow fall) and fun (sledding and snowball fights)

I took this on our anniversary trip to Cape Cod (or "the Cape"as we call it here in New England). How gorgeous is this tree?

I have been bad about adding new photos to the blog. I've been so busy on the weekends with photo shoots and family time. It's so great to have the support of my family and friends with this new adventure. Many of my friends have let me take their holiday photos. Once I get them squared away, I'll post them. For now, here's a photo I took at a cemetery yesterday.

What a great day! I had a fun photo shoot with my friend and her family. I'm hoping to post some photos soon. Also, we were able to get out and see 007. Daniel Craig did a fantastic job!

Where the hell is Matt? 2012

I'd have to say this is my favorite of all the videos he's posted.

Jack and I got out there and voted today. He kept asking me if he could vote so I let him. His choices? Sam and Greg (the 2 yellow Wiggles) of course. Who did he pick? Although we love Sam, he went for Greg. It was a tough decision! Now mommy's decision wasn't so tough but I won't be getting into politics on this blog!

I was waiting for a family to arrive for a photo shoot yesterday morning. The water was so peaceful. It was very calming to sit there and wait with this beautiful view.

There aren't many trees left that are still changing color. This one is especially gorgeous, changing from green to yellow to red.

Here is a video made by my incredibly talented nephew. Check it out!

Toddler times

Ah, the joys of being the mom of a 2.5 year old. Yesterday, I was ready to have a mommy meltdown after my son, Jack, went through music class knocking kids down (intentionally) left and right. He was like Godzilla taking down Tokyo. He's usually a pretty easy going kid so I'm not sure where the random "handsy" behavior is coming from....or maybe he's just exploring more with his personality (Good times!). 
Thankfully, today is another day and he's back to his usual goofy 2 year old self. For example, typically he likes to torment our very lazy Garfield like cat, Seamus. He found Seamus sleeping in his usual spot at the end of our bed. Jack went up to him, turned around and said "HA HA HA, look at my BUM, kitty!!". I couldn't stop laughing. Where do they get this stuff from?

He thought no one saw him go in this room. I snuck up behind him and took this as well as a video. He was dancing away without a clue that I was behind him. Right after I took this pic, he said "Dance with me mommy!"

Happy Autumn!

Just taking a walk and thought this was pretty. Sorry about the wires. I couldn't seem to get around them!

These adorable little monkeys are my friends kids (including my little Superboy in there). We had been planning a group birthday dinner (we all have birthdays in the summer) and I figured, why not get a group Halloween shot. Getting all six kids to look at the camera was a fun challenge!

I drive by this little brook on my way to work every day. I finally got a chance to stop and take a picture!
