Fall Photos and A Princess Update

I finally managed to get the girls and myself out and about today, on our own adventure. It seems we have been running here and there for weeks. Or at least I have.

I loved the photos from today. Our girls really are something special and continue to become more beautiful each moment!

I have yet to finish publishing photos from our pumpkin patch trip this year. I will have those up this weekend hopefully. They had so much fun and loved running the corn fields, picking pumpkins and feeding a gazillion farm animals.

I have been keeping really busy with the photography business. I have met so many wonderful families and amazing children. I have been very lucky to photograph some fabulous people and cannot thank them enough for allowing me to do so. I've updated a few sessions but there are still many more to come.

The girls made an unexpected trip to their pediatrician this week. It's been about 4 weeks since the start of their cold and coughing. It seems each Fall/Winter results in the same chronic cough issues. This time we think we've sorted things through. They've both been diagnosed with somewhat of a chronic lung infection. Always present after their first cold of the season, they have persistent and wet coughing, especially at night. It appears that their lungs remain inflamed and it's tougher and tougher for the lungs to recover.

Izabel and Emily were both put on two meds for the nebulizer 4 times a day. Once we get this episode under control, we will drop the daily doses but continue to do the breathing treatments every day until Spring arrives. Today is day two of the treatments and we may see improvement, but I won't say for sure for a few more days.

Halloween was last minute this year. Izabel was pretty sure she wanted to be a doctor for about the last 3 months. Then all of a sudden, she changed her mind. We spent the evening rounding up last minute things and preparing for our first trick-o-treat event on Friday. Izabel and Emily will be darling and I can't wait to share their costumes with you on Friday.

And finally, the time as finally arrived. I enrolled Izabel in her first extracurricular activity. She begins dance lessons on Saturday. To say she's excited is an understatement. My little ballerina. She will have lessons from now until May 2010. Her first recital is set for June 5th. More news and photos of this exciting adventure when they become available.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
More photos of the girls from the last few weeks over in FLICKR! Enjoy!

And don't forget, if I am not here, I'm over there! lol!
