Ghost at Stricker Station

As October came in and Halloween loomed on the horizon, I became a bit obsessed with creating some ghost photos.  It seemed like the perfect opportunity to let my inner morbid side mesh with my need for a creative outlet through photography.  My friend Dani was on board with the idea of using her daughter, Piper, as a ghost model.  So one Sunday afternoon, we headed on over to the Old Stricker Station Homestead for a little photo shoot.  The home was built around the turn of the 20th century and is rumored to be haunted.  I've never experienced any paranormal activity there, but it sure was fun to play up those eery feelings with some Photoshop!  Piper made an awesome ghost.  I had so much fun creating these images.

A post full of obligatory pictures from our pumpkin patch adventure last night!

With three little kids, so many things remain undone around the house.  There always seems to be so many things to do and not enough time or energy to do them.  But leaving all that behind to make memories like these with my boys takes top priority on my to-do list.  I know I'll never regret it.  We all came home itchy and tired but our bellies and souls were full.

Ooops! It was a accident, Mom!"

Halloween is totally bringing out my morbid side. And it is so much fun! That said, I can't quit laughing at this picture cuz if it could happen in real life with these two, it probably would.
