{ family pictures }

We decided to do family pictures before the baby came and I'm so happy that we did! I LOVE how our pictures turned out and it's so nice to have pictures of the 3.5 of us! 

Matt always jokes that family picture day is the worst day of the year, but this year it was great! I tried not to stress so much, because I know a lot of the tone of the shoot is attributed to the parents (cough). So all you parents out there make sure that you are happy and relaxed so your kids are too! And bring lots of snacks to bribe your kids with.

My friend Jalene from J. Taylor Photography (who is totally sweet and fabulous) took our photos. It was seriously so fun and I enjoyed being in front of the camera instead of behind it. Matt and Berkley are still very much against getting their pictures taken, but I think even they will tell you that it was enjoyable.

{ pumpkin patch }

Went to the pumpkin patch today...felt like the hottest day of the week. I went all bundled up with Berkley and Benton all bundled up, just to end up taking off all the layers. Which normally I certainly wouldn't complain about...but I just want it to be cold! Until after I have the baby...then it needs to be nice. Haha...yeah right. 

Anyway...we met my Tia (Aunt) Mely and Abuelo's (grandparents) there and we had such a nice time! It's so nice having them here and I'm going to be sad when they leave to go to Texas for the winter, in a couple weeks. I'm so glad we were all able to go and get some cute pictures. Well except for me. At times like these I really wish I had an awesome point and shoot camera so anyone could take a picture for me and I could actually be in it. THAT'S what I should put on my Christmas list!! 

Hope you enjoy the pictures.
