Before the Packer on Sunday game we took a little drive around our neighborhood.
We stopped at my favorite barns. I set up my camera and Katie took the picture.
Here is what I mean by I set up my camera.
I put the camera on (A) for aperture priority and then I set the aperture to 1.8.
I told Katie where to stand and told her to hold still and shoot.
And really. I couldn't have done any better.
(I love my spontaneous, adorable husband.)
We don't have to drive far to see this sight.
The corn is super tall this year.
It is at least 8 feet tall.
When we got home I made The Pioneer Woman's Potato Skins.
I have never done this before but the step by step instructions led the way.
Patrick really loved them just like this.
I like mine like this.
They were done just in time for half time.
Very, very good!!!
A goodbye to October poem. One of my very favorites.
Thanks for reminding me of this one, Melika :o)
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.
Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."
I was delighted to see the colors in the background mimicking Katie's hat.
I think I need to make more of those hats.
