autumn L♡VE


Oh, how I love this time of year--crisp air, colorfully painted trees, pumpkin muffins, scarves & brown locks. Oddly enough, I feel a sense of renewal on this dreary, rainy day. I guess a very lazy weekend can do that to you.

Couldn't resist sharing more pictures from our excursion up the canyon.

Our second attempt at some baby bump pictures. The first ones were no good.
Having Collin take pictures who also enjoys telling fart jokes or anything to make me laugh is always a treat. Trying to not laugh with a stoic look in the first photo, nice try.
My sister, Ashley, moved far, far away... Czech Republic to be exact. She asked to see some belly shots so these are for you Ash!
Counting down from 7 weeks until our honey dew (that's how big the baby is right now) makes her sweet addition to our family. Avery was a day early, so typical since she is such a busy girl & ready to play the second the sun rises. Quincey was a week late, which again is so typical because Quincey takes forever to wake up in the morning and wants to cuddle first. I'm guessing this honeydew will almost double in size the next 7 weeks, if she follows after her sisters' baby fat footsteps and is 8 1/2 pounds. The waddling is only going to get slower folks.

Hope you're having a great start to your week!
I'll also be offering another online class this week. More details to come. Here's a hint.

P.S. did you know your Family link is gone? not sure if you did that on purpose or not?

I love baby bump photos. It is such a wonderful sight knowing there's a little piece of heaven inside just waiting to come out.

someday I'll have my turn. someday...

Krista Nash said...

Finally! I have been waiting to see any picture with a hint of a belly. You're very good at posting only shoulder up shots. And I couldn't believe it when you posted a week or two ago how close you were to your due date because you are NOT showing at all in your face and arms. So it's nice to have real proof that that baby is in there. :) You look lovely and radiant!

Ann Marie said...

From where I sit Liz, your life looks absolutely idyllic and perfect. You are very blessed. And very beautiful. And I'm excited that you share your talents with us!

Laurie said...

Erin said...

You look amazing and happy--enjoy every moment! :)

Cherie said...

Look how cute you are! I'm loving your hair darker.

Collin said...

If anyone wants to hear my fart jokes, call my agent for a booking.

Ninotschka said...

Drama queens mum (Kimberly) said...

Love the pics. Wow, you sis is really far away. Is she staying there for a long time? I mean are they stationed there or something?

elizabeth kartchner said...

My sister's husband is playing professional basketball there :)

Erin said...

You look beautiful Liz! Hang in there during that last trimester! I have to tell you that I was so scared of having three and so far it has been great! (my third is 6 months) I think you are so "kid conditioned" by that point that it just feels like the more the merrier. :)

Those beautiful pictures make me want to visit my sister in SLC and head up the canyon!

Julie said...

Super cute belly!

Jennifer Stanley said...

You look just like your sister in that second photo! (the one that didn't move half way across the planet) :)

nicole said...

You look amazing!!!! Those are some beautiful pictures.

Jean said...

You look amazing and I love your hair color. You make me want to go dye my hair tonight. Too bad I just paid for highlights.

Shirley said...

That first photo of you and Avery is soooo adorable and love seeing your baby bump! You look fantastic and I'll be watching for your class. I missed the last one and was so bummed!

Jennifer Magreevy said...

I love that you correlated your girls' personalities to their birth story. I always thought that was similar to mine and my siblings: my brother was two..TWO...weeks late, and he's never on time. My sister was two weeks early, and she's anal retentive and uber-controlling (umm...don't tell her I said that). I was smack dab on my due date, after 24 hours of active labor and only popped out after they threatened a c-section. I'm a procrastinator, and typically fly in at the last possible second. :)

Lara said...

you are adorable!! and those girls, omg, too cute!!!

Elizabeth said...

Adorable!!!

krazgrl said...

You look absolutely radiant!! Love all of the pics. Can't wait for your new online class.

Beth M said...

I love that you share your life and family with us along with your talents.

Ashley and Chris Miles said...

Are you kidding me??? Liz you look amazing! I love the last picture it brought tears to my eyes. I wish I could be there with you. I miss you dearly sis! How did you like conference?? Love you so much. I wanna see the girls again let me know when a good time is.

Libby said...

You look great!

Lucinda said...

Your baby bump is so little! I'm 33 weeks but feel like I'm 40 weeks! Just got my prize from Scrapbook Circle and can't wait to start creating with it! Thanks again!

Giny Cortés said...

Looking good Liz! See you in the classroom!

Wendy said...

You look absolutely beautiful! Lucky Collin to be surrounded by all you gorgeous girls!

Lindsey said...

Your sis moved to Czech?? My sister totally lives there!! She lives in Prague, is that where Ashley is? I should send you my sister's info so Ashley could talk to someone! There is only one Branch there so if she is in Prague they could meet at church. My sis has been there for years and will be there forever, probably. Anyway, being far away can be hard so if Ashley needs a friend, let me know!

Daniela said...

you look lovely !

Isabelle D said...

You are beautiful! I don't speak english very well, so :
Félicitations!!! J'adore les bébés et je vous envie, même sij'ai déjà 5 filles!!! A bientôt

Ambrosia said...

You're a doll <3

Denise Laborde said...

WoW! Only 7 weeks left? Time has flown by. You look beautiful carrying "an angel in [your] tummy!"
Bises, D

Nicole said...

love those photos, you look stunning, plus don't bet on getting really big ;) my belly would have been about your size at 41+2 when #4 was born and he was 8lbs7oz
