Country Love

My husband's work bought some pigs a few weeks ago. I have always had a fond place in my heart for these little critters. I used to have a pig when I was younger and the pig became my younger sibling's care taker at times. Long story, but true. When I heard about the pigs, I had to get my hands on one and take some quick photos of it with my kidlets. Since we live in the country somewhat, there is no greater background then nature, so we got the pig, the kids, and went for it. It took a long time for the pig to settle down and finally feel comfortable with us. Here are a few shots from the day. Yes, some do not have the pig in it, pigs do not take direction as well as I would have liked.

Autumn leaves

A couple of weeks ago I noticed how quick the leaves in the neighborhood were changing.    I could not believe how sudden the change was.  I quickly grabbed my camera and went over to a friends house who had such vibrant leaves in her yard and took a few shots of my youngest.  I love this time of year for so many reasons; hot chocolate, soups, cuddling up and reading a good book, and for some odd reason I love the smell of fall. Hope everyone can get out and enjoy a little of the change of weather and enjoy the beauty that is around all of us.
