Weekend recap - shopping trip!

Oct 29, 2013

We had a super productive weekend here at the Pihowich household! We went to our first hockey game of the season Friday night. Maddox did not too bad. We left halfway through the second period to go home and have a bath and head to bed. We knew going in to the game he wouldn't make it through, it's hard for him to sit still at this stage in his life.
 
Saturday morning we all woke up bright and early and had a quick breakfast, shower and took off to Prince Albert for the day. I had a photoshoot with my Aunt and Uncle and my adorable cousins! We also had a lot of shopping to do... good thing we brought the truck in!
 
 
 
 
During our shopping trip we had a lot of firsts for Maddox! First time picking out his own book in the bookstore, first time eating McDonalds, first time ordering his own supper at a restaurant! It was a fun day. Only had one meltdown at Walmart but it was definitely our fault because Maddox needed a break. He was exhausted. Also.. apparently my shoes were exhausted as one of them had a hole in it by the end of our trip! We got home late Saturday night so decided not to go out.. good thing because somone wanted to be a cuddle bug and sleep with mommy and daddy!
 
Sunday we spent the day lounging, decided to hang up our Christmas lights and clean out the garage. I will never understand why we don't think to fix the Christmas lights in the summer.. Oh well.. maybe next year! 

Apple Crisp for Two

Oct 18, 2013

When the weather starts to turn cold and crisp, there is only one thing that comes to my mind. Comfort food. This dish is my favorite to make in the fall. It smells amazing, and tastes oh so good and just reminds me of Mom's cooking!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Oct 16, 2013

    Well we are back from a whirlwind of a weekend! I would have posted sooner but I've been fighting a horrendous flu. I finally feel like I'm back to myself!

    We spent the weekend and my parents farm. I had a couple photoshoots Saturday morning, and we took off as soon as I was done. My sister took some amazing photos of us!

    It was nice to get some family photos done! It seems like it has been forever since we have had some done, Maddox just grows way to fast! He is such a little boy now it breaks my heart how fast he's grown!


    We must remember, we are family and we will walk together down this path we call life...

    End of Harvest

    Oct 8, 2013

    Sorry that I dissapeared for a couple weeks there. Harvest time is busy and I wasn't able to get to my computer very much.. just to edit photos here and there when needed.

    Speaking of that, I would like to thank everyone for the continued support and love while I embark on my own personal business! It has been a wonderful venture so far and I absolutely love it!

    I did a mini session this past weekend and this was my favorite picture of M that I took. I had 5 families ask me for pictures with their kids and I loved the setups I put together!

    So anyway, now that harvest is done I'm hoping to get to my website more and update it more often! I would love to start putting up more recipes and fun things and weekend reviews.

    As a review of harvest, I would like to share these three pictures with you taken one evening in the field. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous!
