We had such a great day at the pumpkin patch on Saturday. It was such a beautiful day. The morning was very gray and dreary as you can tell by my last post, but the afternoon turned out to be gorgeous! Nolan was at an all day seminar (The Truth Project) for his men's group at church, so it was just me and the girls. Can you believe we didn't even get to any pumpkins? As you will see shortly, there is just so much to do at this place. It is such a fun day for the kids. We typically go a few times a year, but next time I plan on taking it easy with the camera. I might even leave it at home. (Well.... maybe locked in the car. Just in case.) It's a problem, really. Good thing my kids don't seem to mind. :-)
So be warned... I took lots of photos. (See "problem" above.)

In addition to running my own photography business, I am a proud mother to three beautiful girls that were born in my heart, and a wife to my wonderful husband of 17 years. We adopted Leila from Moscow, Russia at 32-months old and Mia from Jiangsu Province, China at 13-months old. We thought we were done at two, until God led us on another journey to China - this time to bring home our 11-year old daughter, Kara Da Xin in July 2009. I am also the proud Aunt of two nephews, born in Guatemala, and a niece, born in China. I am so thankful to our Heavenly Father for blessing our family with these amazing children.
This is a very special necklace I had made to keep my children close to my heart. On the left, it says "family" in Russian. On the right, it says, "mother and daughter joined at the heart" in Chinese. I love this piece of jewelry and how it always reminds me of our journey to bring home our three precious girls.
