arrived in Louisiana!! The windows have been thrown open, pumpkin spice candles are lit
in every room, and I cooked my very best soup to date: beef and vegetable with every
single ingredient purchased from our local vegetable co-op. Isabelle and I
finished homework duties at lightening speed last week so that we could catch an hour
of sunshine before dance class. We walked over to the little pumpkin patch at our
church and I let the girls pick out pumpkins and a few gourds. These photos are an
amazing representation of life with my two girls lately: Isabelle prancing around with
her head in the clouds, dancing and singing to herself as she acts out the musical that
exists inside her extraordinary imagination. And Brees, my sweet little baby who has
grown into a toddler overnight, running at full speed the second I point my camera into
her general direction, covering her face with a diva-like "No pictures please" attitude.
They have such different personalities and I'm not sure if it is because of their age
difference or if they are just truly different people. Only time will tell, I suppose. Until
then, we will treasure these moments of Belle's super size grins and the glimpses of the
back of Brees' head as she heads for the hills.
