Fall Photos

This evening I took fall photos of the kids playing in the leaf pile that Chad was working on! He has a bagger for his lawn mower so cleaning up the leafs is a breeze. And my yard looks much nicer! Chad kept adding more leafs to the pile so it kept getting bigger and bigger as they were playing! They were also a leafy mess by the time it was over!
I love this with all the leaf's in the air!
 Of course Lindsey had to do it too! Just not so many leafs!
Dive in!
Jacob who is always busy, was putting them in his little wheel barrel! Making his own pile!
The kids had a blast tonight, and it was fun to watch them interact with each other! I know where they will be tomorrow when they get off the bus!  Leaf pile 4:00pm, OK maybe 4:30 gotta have snack first!                                      Lisa

Another Trip to Indy!

On Monday Jacob had another doctor's appointment down in Indy, to meet with his doctor and get his new pressure garment glove from his physical therapist. He was excited to get his new glove considering his other ones were wore out and to small! His doctor said that everything looks great, he has to go back down toward the end of December. The doctor suggested seeing him in two months rather than three since he is such a growing little guy! So he will have to be fitted again for another glove when we go back down, this will hopefully prevent the gloves from getting so wore out. After his doctors appointment and on the way back home we stopped by the Harley Davidson shop to do some shopping! Jacob was excited to see the bikes, he liked looking at the toys they had, meanwhile I was trying to find the boys matching shirts. 
In the picture below, Jacob checking out the bike!
"Yeap dad, this is the one!" Forget those plastic toys!
Not to worry, he did settle for those plastic toys after all!
And as for Chad, well lets just say he was dreaming and drooling! Of course he had some things to show me, just a little out of our price range! (OK did I say a little, I mean a lot!) 
Here are the two wild boys in their matching shirts! 
Overall we had a great day and I was just glad to see Jacob get his much needed new glove! I think he was too!                                Lisa

Denim Ruffles

I finished up some denim ruffle pants for the shop on Saturday, they will listed soon! I took Chad some dinner when he was at the other farm filling the grain bins and decided to take Lindsey back to the barn lot for some pictures! Let me just tell you this it was freezing out! Some of the pictures turned out well, the sun was setting and the lighting was great. I got excited when I seen this old truck out there! Lindsey wasn't quite sure about sitting on it but I insisted it would look marvelous! I actually like the old truck, I think it adds lots of character!
This one here is one of my favorites, I just love the colors in the background!
And here is one last picture of Lindsey doing her supermodel pose! 
I do have admit that it is always so funny when we do a photo shoot together! I tell her to"work it darling work it" in this super funny french accent! Its always hysterical, and I do manage to get her to pose for me and have fun with it! I have lots more things that need to be photographed for my shop so be sure to check it out within the next few weeks! On a different note, tomorrow Jacob has his doctors appointment down in Indy, he should be getting his new glove! I sure hope so because his other ones are to small and have some holes in them! He is definitely a hard working country boy! Also, we are writing the first check for the money raised with Riley's Pop Garden Knot dress, the total comes to $84! Wahoo! The money will be going to the Riley Hospital for Children's Burn Unit! A huge Thank You to all of my sweet customers!  Lisa

A farmer in training!

It's that time of year again, the harvest season is upon us! Last week was the first week that we got into the fields. Jacob of course was excited to see the combine drive past last week and I mentioned to him that they were going to "pick beans". Well Jacob says to me "no cut beans", wow I thought this coming from a two year old! So of course I just had to ask him "do you cut corn?" and he says "no pick corn" in a very stern voice! I was just too funny, he was so serious when we were talking, he probably thought I was out of my mind not knowing how to farm! On the first day the guys got in the fields I took the kids down to the bean field for a ride in the combine. At first Jacob was excited to see the combine in the field but when it got closer and when it came time to get in it he seemed a little apprehensive. 
We assured him that it was fine and away they went down the field, he was excited about the ride when he got back! And still talks about it allllll the time!!!
This past Saturday when we were picking corn, the kids got to ride to town to the elevator to drop off the corn.
Kyle has gone lots of times so this was nothing new to him but for Lindsey and Jacob they thought it was pretty neat! Of course Chad mentioned to me that we can't waste time at the elevator and we soon found out why! When we got back to field the auger wagon was full and the combine was almost full! I don't think I could make it being a farmer, way to much to learn! That and you really don't want me driving a combine, now that would be scary! OK I think that's enough farming pictures for one blog!                                                              Lisa
