Fall Fun

I am so anxious for fall! My neighbor brought over nearly a bushel of apples from a trip to the orchard, so I made a wonderful apple crisp tonight. The recipe was from one of my Everyday Food magazines. It is a great magazine...check it out online if you have not ever seen it.

I am enjoying trying a new lens for my camera...a 35mm 1.8 fixed. I have been tinkering with the aperture trying to get some better indoor shots minus the flash. I think these pictures of the apple crisp in-progress turned out quite nice.


This shot is just too good not to share. My mom just finished knitting the hat and sweater and I wanted to show her how cute it was on AnnaKate. It also showcases the greatness of the lens and the cuteness of AK!
AnnaKate and her cousin Ella taking a cruise in the Barbie jeep last weekend. They both had a ball!
Just in case you were wondering...Cindy is still around and doing fine! AnnaKate can do just about anything while wearing Cindy. She is tolerating the pressure of the machine for short periods in the eveing as well. I am really nervous about the sleep study...it is going to be hard to expect her to go from testing out the machine to sleeping with it in one night.
Have a great weekend! I hope it feel like fall where ever you are...

It really feels like fall here! Sweaters are out and I'm ready to make soup (don't know how long the weather will stay cool but hey!). Love the pictures. Do you read Pioneer Woman? She has inspired me to pay more attention to my camera. I'm working on it.

That picture of AK is seriously one of the best ever! The hat is pretty cute too....

Absolutely GORGEOUS! Your pictures and AK! I would love to pay your mom to knit one for Nathan. We are having a hard time finding a hat to fit his head since it is so small. Putting an infant hat on him just isn't right any more. He is almost a year and a half!

Can't wait to see more of your fall pics.

Great pictures. Your photography gets better and better. Your post was very Bakerella-ish. The pictures were scrumptious. The "hat" picture is AMAZING!!! You captured AK's personality perfectly.

That 1.8 lens is great, and it looks like you're getting some excellent shots with it. I really like the apple shots.
