Pumpkin Patch 2010

Brooke and I went to the pumpkin patch this year to pick out some pumpkins and get some cute pictures. It was so much more fun this year (last year she was only six months old). As soon as we pulled in she was yelling pumpkin pumpkin (more like punkn punkn). Brooke was running around trying to pick them all up and was really exited when we found the section of small pumpkins! From that point on it was; mine or my punkn.

Somehow in the middle of all the excitement and running around I did however manage to get our pumpkin patch pictures for this year. They are not as great as last years, when we were lucky enough to have someone take them, but I love them just as much!

Here is a picture from last year. I am so amazed how much she has grown and how smart she has become. My little baby is growing up to be, such a wonderful loving toddler.

Brooklyn and Emma

My old camera broke a few weeks ago, but thankfully my wonderful husband bought me a new one ( my Christmas and birthday present). so the first thing i did was call up my friend Ambur and ask her to bring her daughter Emma over, so we could take pictures of the girls.
once we got to the park i quickly realized two things; keeping up with these girls is going to be impossible and there is no way that i can get them to sit and smile at the same time ha ha. However i did get a few good pictures!
(These are in my opinion the two best shots of the day!)

The girls only wanted to play in the mud and throw horse apples(AKA balls)

Since Emma is a year older than Brooke she is always teaching her something new, in this case climbing on the fence.

Lewis Newcomb

Two weeks ago my grandfather Lewis passed away. In my heart I know that we did everything we could but in my head I feel like I just let him down. Unfortunately I was unable to be with him and my grandma the day he passed. It's been tearing at me this whole time, even though know that there is nothing I could have done. I just wish I could have hugged him one last time and would have been there for my grandma.

I remember the first time I met Lewis; It was about ten years ago. To any other twelve year old Lewis would be the mean grumpy old man, but to me he was just someone who sarcastically picked on me...and I picked right back. I was told how much Lewis didn't like kids, my response; He is going to HAVE to like me, and he did.

I had ten great years with Lewis, and ten years is all it took for him to have a place in my heart for the rest of my life. I look forward to the day when I can go up to him and tell the "old fart" how much I really loved him!! and thank him for showing my grandma what real love was all about.

There are things we don't want to happen

but we have to accept,

things we don't want to know

but we have to know,

and people we cant live without

but have to let go.

Lewis I love you and will miss you forever!
