Fall Pictures of the Kids

My friend Charlene is really talented and she took some of the cutest fall pictures of the kids.

We were sitting beside each other at the ballpark a few nights ago, both looking off into the woods (probably evening dreaming of not being at the ballpark) and she noticed a pretty alley just outside the fence.  She pointed out how pretty that spot would be for family pictures.  She took some beautiful pictures of her daughter in the spot, so I asked if she would take some pictures of our kids too.  She did – What a friend! Check them out.







She had me sit down for a picture (even though I didn’t have makeup on)


Thanks Charlene!


Brother & Sisters

We had a great couple days with my siblings.  I like who we are – these adults who care for each other.  We tell the truth to each other, but mostly we love.  I hope that our Dad would be proud of who we are (I know Mom is proud !)

I liked being a Freels kid – but “Stewart” just sounds better with my first name!

Work, fun – yep it’s all the same thing and Thanksgiving

I’ve had a lot of fun lately working. Well, it’s a little different in that it’s for family.

Bought Furniture & picked out more fabric for my sister-in-law.

The lamp and side tables are not part of the scheme and there is another piece if artwork that matches the one on the wall. We also selected fabric for the pillows on the couch today ( those pillows went with another couch).
I worked on Rin’s room yesterday ( it’s not all done though)



The little owl lamp is an unexpected favorite.
We also had a wonderful thanksgiving at my sister- in- laws house. The kids loved playing and running around her house. Claire my niece had decorated and cooked! Really, she’s a doll.


Then we started decorating for Christmas! daddy and I had a little bit of a scare with the tree, but it all came together and only one of my fingers is smashed ;). Only kidding


Little man bad wanted the colored lights somewhere and the boys room needed some more cheer. I think it turned out cute.
I hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving.
