Jenny Freeman - November 1, 2007 - 7:17 am

I can’t pick between F, H and Q!!! Yikes. And there are a few others I would say I love as well, but those were the ones that stood out the most to me.

Kim - November 1, 2007 - 8:33 am

When I think of fall, I always think of pumpkins and leaves changing color. I can’t pick just one picture!!!! I vote for F, I, and R! There are so many great photos.

Jenn - November 1, 2007 - 8:47 am

Can’t decide yet which to pick, but wanted to let you know there are two pictures labeled S.

Tina - November 1, 2007 - 8:47 am

Beth from Iowa - November 1, 2007 - 9:21 am

Wow….everyone really captured fall! I gotta go with L because it captured 2 of my favorite parts of fall…colorful leaves and kids!!!

Joy - November 1, 2007 - 9:40 am

Photo L!!! Great outfit for the season, beautiful girl! Obviouslly taking in the moment of the season! Awesome photo!

Amanda - November 1, 2007 - 9:42 am

Photo S – sent by Sue Mestery

Too cute and the little girl is precious!

Paul - November 1, 2007 - 9:44 am

Am I voting for the photo just because of the kid? Photo H it is.

Shana - November 1, 2007 - 9:57 am

What Fall means to me is all the beautiful colors; especially since I live in the mountains of East Tennessee. I love 5 different pictures: H, I, L, U and W! If I had to go with just one and the ONE that sums up “my” Fall, then it would have to be U!

I also wanted to let you know there is two for “S”.
Thanks for doing the contest, I didn’t get around to sending in a picture, but I have been anxiously waiting to see all those that did!

Jennifer - November 1, 2007 - 9:59 am

Photo L is my favorite!

Elisa - November 1, 2007 - 10:02 am

I vote for photo H!

Sheri - November 1, 2007 - 10:16 am

Photo L. Really great shot!

Shari - November 1, 2007 - 10:48 am

My vote is the 1st S (by Gail) because it made me laugh out loud and reminded me of some fun leaf-raking parties from years ago!

Alice - November 1, 2007 - 10:52 am

I vote for L, love the fall colors!

KH - November 1, 2007 - 11:06 am

I like A.

Lynda - November 1, 2007 - 11:16 am

Oh my goodness, this was hard!!! I love fall and all the pics with the kiddos are so adorable. But I have to say that my very favorite is L. The colors are just beautiful. Thanks for sharing everyone 🙂

JScilley - November 1, 2007 - 11:31 am

I would like to choose photo “L”.

Kristen - November 1, 2007 - 1:15 pm

I love them all but my vote is for R! What a cutie!

Amie - November 1, 2007 - 1:41 pm

I liked L and W, but I’m gonna have to go with the big L! = )

Sherry - November 1, 2007 - 1:50 pm

Wow. It’s between C & L….
I guess my vote is for L.
Love it!

Karen - November 1, 2007 - 1:56 pm

Wow, that’s a lot of photos! My favorites are H,I,K,L,R, and U.

Cathy - November 1, 2007 - 2:29 pm

There are so many great pictures! I think I like G; walking, playing, and exploring as children outside in the fall is the greatest!

Ian Rowe - November 1, 2007 - 2:33 pm

Cute photo with great colours in L!!

Julie B. - November 1, 2007 - 2:48 pm

Too many great photos!!!! I’m going to vote for W.

Katrina - November 1, 2007 - 3:09 pm

I have to go with W but man that is sooooo tough!!

Jacquelyn Senske - November 1, 2007 - 3:39 pm

I vote for photo S!

Amy - November 1, 2007 - 4:07 pm

I voted earlier for photo S, but it should be Photo R. I was looking at them with the labels underneath instead of on top of the picture.

Laura - November 1, 2007 - 4:17 pm

Photo Q gets my vote.

Jordan - November 1, 2007 - 4:37 pm

Photo A

Kristine - November 1, 2007 - 4:44 pm

I love photo Q… walking through the leaves is one of the best quiet moments of fall.

Cali - November 1, 2007 - 4:47 pm

So many beautiful photos! I pick H.

Sharon - November 1, 2007 - 4:53 pm

Photo L is my pick. Great fall colors.Beautiful subject.

Cate - November 1, 2007 - 6:22 pm

Goodness, it’s a tough decision. I’m between H and L. I think I like L so much because that outfit is downright adorable. But the light in the little boy’s eyes in H is great. I think I have to go with H.

Kirsty - November 1, 2007 - 6:57 pm

I’m voting for Photo G.
There’s something really familiar about it. And it’s cute. 🙂

I really LOVE lots of the other ones, too! Fantastic!

April - November 1, 2007 - 7:24 pm

I vote A too :)!

Stephanie - November 1, 2007 - 9:22 pm

I vote for F!! I have twins so fall means multiples to me. I love that the parents took their 4 babies to the pumpkin patch and all the babies are content.

Kim - November 1, 2007 - 11:26 pm

Photo F =)

Tara - November 1, 2007 - 11:57 pm

Photo G!

Shannon - November 2, 2007 - 12:24 am

Photo G is my favorite. I really like the angle of the shot. But photo R answers the theme best for me. It is still warm in Texas, and we don’t have many leaves falling, so our favorite fall activity is going to the pumpkin patch. All the pictures are really good though!

randy - November 2, 2007 - 10:17 am

Great colors and a beautiful little girl

randy - November 2, 2007 - 10:18 am

Photo L beautiful colors and wonderful hair on that little girl

Mary - November 2, 2007 - 10:39 am

I pick Q. Father and Son how sweet!

Colleen w. - November 2, 2007 - 11:06 am

photo L!

Aimee - November 2, 2007 - 12:39 pm

Photo F

Kelly - November 2, 2007 - 1:09 pm

I like S, the one with the kids playing the the leaves. All of the pictures are wonderful.

Jodi - November 2, 2007 - 2:07 pm

Love the contest and what great pictures people sent in. I love L, N, and Q – I can’t decide which one more. Have fun with your sister!

Joyce - November 2, 2007 - 3:09 pm

So hard to pick – I loved so many of them. Adorable children walking in the leaves, holding pumpkins… but I kept coming back to the contemplative “L”
I loved the pop of color in the clothing on the little girl, but the calm, contemplative nature of the photo in contrast to that energy of color.
But, incredibly hard to decide because there are so many winners.

AW - November 2, 2007 - 3:28 pm


Stephanie Funck - November 2, 2007 - 4:14 pm

photo U….I wish fall would show up in maryland, almost all the leaves are still green!

Liesl - November 2, 2007 - 4:28 pm

There are way too many great pics! I love L and R (among many others). Have a great “vacation!” I moved from MN to Oklahoma last year and I miss all that is great about Minnesota! Enjoy the time with your sister :o)
P.S. I love your blog and am one of your faithful blogstalkers, er, I mean fans…hehe 🙂

Atsuko - November 2, 2007 - 4:33 pm

what a fun contest – so many beautiful pictures. I like O — would love it even better if fall in MN was a liiiittle more like fall in Hawaii! :o)

Helen Pettiet - November 2, 2007 - 4:51 pm

I REALLY love picture ‘O’ – – – so tranquil.

John - November 2, 2007 - 5:12 pm

Picture O — very nice

Leslee - November 2, 2007 - 5:56 pm

Photo F … Family is what it is all about.

Missy - November 2, 2007 - 5:58 pm

I vote for R. I’m a sucker for a cute kid!!! The genuine look of happiness is irreplaceable!!

Denise - November 2, 2007 - 6:09 pm

Picture U

They are many nice ones but that one is WOW!

Jen (Mom to Quad Boys in Pic F) - November 2, 2007 - 6:14 pm

I HAVE to vote for my own pumpkins! I vote for F!!!! F for Fabulous! Great contest, Noemi!

Melanie - November 2, 2007 - 6:56 pm

s, u, or w…I couldn’t pick just one!!!! Great photos!

Melanie - November 2, 2007 - 6:59 pm

oops..the s with the little girl looking through the hole

Sandee - November 2, 2007 - 7:01 pm

I vote for N because of the creativity.

Gail - November 2, 2007 - 8:56 pm

I hope I’m not too late but I just couldn’t decide!! I was between L, Q, and W but have settled on W since I LOVE pictures of kids in the leaves. (Yes, that’s my daughter trying to find her brother in the first S!) Plus…what a CUTE kid!!

katherine - November 2, 2007 - 9:16 pm

Photo G. I feel like I’m there.

Jeanette - November 2, 2007 - 9:21 pm

I choose picture F – the Murrays & their 4 little punkins in the pumpkin patch! Gorgeous family & beautiful pumpkins!

Fall means so much more to me since we have been living outside of the US in a tropical country for 4 years. I miss all the gorgeous, vibrant colors on the trees in town & way up into the hills. I miss that smoky smell of fireplaces burning for the first time since summer. I miss the delicious aroma of that hot pot of soup on the stove after coming in from the chilly fall air. (Somehow that hot pot of soup in an 80 degree evening climate just isn’t the same – but if we kick up the air con nice & cool we can still get a similar effect. 🙂 I miss carving pumpkins, pumpkin soup, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, & pumpkin pie. I miss the crunchy sound of leaves under foot on a walk, & the kids jumping in mile high piles of leaves freshly raked. I miss that feeling of gratitude that abounds in every church & in every neighborhood, knowing that Thanksgiving is just around the corner.

Julie - November 2, 2007 - 9:59 pm

I vote for “H”!

Stacey - November 3, 2007 - 9:27 pm

I vote F! I have triplets. Babies, pumpkins, and cozy nights with my husband that is what fall is to me.

Mackenzie - November 4, 2007 - 9:12 pm

I love Photo H.. very adorbable but very simple!!!! I love It

Alli - November 4, 2007 - 11:51 pm

Photo F, having 4 kids (including twins) definately makes me appreicate the family picture with 4 content babies.

all pictures are amazing though

Cassie - November 29, 2007 - 4:25 am

I have to say B …but the second one Leaves in the air
