this used to be a lot easier...

Remember this?



Piece of cake!

And this?



A breeze!

But this?



Lord, give me strength.

The annual Rives Family Pumpkin Pictures. God bless those Episcopals and their pumpkins--they let us come sit on and carry around and drop their pumpkins every year and are just as sweet about it as they can be.

As you will see, I struggled to get one (just one for crying out loud!) of The Brothers Rives both looking the same way and flashing those million dollar smiles. But what we did get was cute because it is just SO them--squirmy, messy, and a tad uncooperative. Those with the distinct honor of having one and two year old boys know of what I speak.

Here are a few... (oh, Robin--had you only visited just one week later...)







and finally, the four of us



Happy Fall, Y'all!

It was Friday night--you know you was out at da club then. And yes, Jude is missing you bad--you need to see his new 'do in person!

It is VERY hard to take good pictures of more than one kid.

I hear it's good to bribe them with marshmallows (so it doesn't show up in their teeth). You could even make homemade ones. :)

You cut Jude's hair! When?? I hope you know that he is going to get skinny now. It always happens that way.

Love these pics, they are so precious! Do they really get skinny when you cut their hair? That explains a lot ! :)

this made me laugh! :) very much like Jude's hair and girl, he looks like he taken a growth spurt, by way of months, that is!!!!!! I can't wait til Evs. gets to be a toddlin' boy! :)

I too missed the fact that you cut Jude's hair-- was there a blog post on it?! Very cute but I was taken back but how old he looks- less baby and more boy every time I see him.
