And then there are the times when they cooperate completely and you get something as gorgeous as this....

From the moment I laid eyes on this young lady I knew I had to photograph her. From head to toe she oozes personality and beauty and originality. Sooo, on this cold, cold, cold October morning I drug her downtown for a quick shoot. I didn't get many shots off...but I didn't need to....every thing she did came out perfect. Looking at these you would never have guessed we were shaking in our shoes from near frost bite...

This whole week has been so warm and then when I have a baby show up, wanting to play outside with her, the day turns almost unbearably cold. Poor thing I tortured her I think...but only for a few minutes. I couldn't bear to see her nose get any more red than it already was. I've photographed this little one many times...not many smiles, and that's what I adore about her. She can look into your soul and you fall in love. I told her mom I would only get a couple...but it was worth it....just look at her beautiful little lips and beautiful blue eyes...the cold was definately worth it!

There isn't anything more in this world that my little yorkie loves to do than go fishing. It's the funniest thing in the world to watch him out there. He hates the water and will wade out until he can't go any further, when he's up to his neck, and wait for someone to bring a fish in.
This is the stone house on the way home. I've always loved seeing it..so I decided to stop this time.

Today I woke up to snow on the ground. The first snow of the year here. I'm not a huge fan of snow so I was a little disappointed at the sight of it on my Sunday morning. But there is one good thing that comes out of cold days.....good food. I love making banana bread on cold days. The aroma covers the house in a blanket of goodness. And there isn't anything better than eating it hot out of the oven with a big glass of milk.
When I first started making banana bread I was very hesitant about the whole process. I was very culinary challenged and I thought making bread involved hours of time spent in the kitchen watching dough rise and time pass...but to my surprise, banana bread is sooo very easy. This is another thing I only make in the fall...it's just kind of a fall food. My banana bread never comes out brown. I've been concerned about that in the past that I'm doing something wrong...but it taste like heaven in your mouth...so I got over being concerned about it.
So for all of those who are stuck inside twiddling your thumbs because of the cold outside....try this out...it'll make you all warm and fuzzy.
2/3 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Cup mashed ripe bananas (I always use three bananas)
1 3/4 Cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 Cup nut (if desired....I never desire them)
Bake in loaf pan. (I started using the silicone pans. They look like something a 5 year old uses for an easy bake oven, but I've never burnt bread with one. They come in awsome colors now...hot pink, purple, blue...you name it.)
Mix all ingredients and put in greased pan. Bake until brown at 350 degrees for one hour.

And then this is what we saw on the way home. The Front Range sure can be beautiful sometimes.
