The results!

Well, we survived our family pictures. They aren't the gorgeous shots that I dreamed of, but I think they turned out pretty cute. (If I could only chop off half of my fat cheeks!) The kids were pretty cooperative, minus Kate, so we got some cute individuals of them. I don't have those back yet. At least now I can get my Christmas cards in the mail!!


Which one do you like better?

I would also like to send my dear friend Jennifer a wish for a happy, busy filled day, and maybe even a frozen hot chocolate (I would bring it to you if I were there!) to keep her mind preoccupied!!!! You are in my thoughts today.

I like the top one best. I think it turned out really well. I know how hard it is to get a picture with multiple kids!

I think they're amazing! You're working with four children here and you all did a great job. I like the top one best.

oh, and you can't even see your pants so you could be wearing boxers and we wouldn't know.

Sigh! So good to be leaving happy comments again!

#1 is my favorite! You look like a hottie with all your make up done up :)! And I don't think your cheeks look fat at all!

When do we get to see the ones of the kids?

Thank you all for the nice comments. Yes, I didn't even need to worry about the pants and shoes. We did try some poses with us on the ground, but Kate was too bratty, so non of those turned out. The kid's pictures will be done in about 3 weeks and I am also going back in Jan. to get a shot of just the kids together. (again Kate wouldn't cooperate.)

I love the first one, but I think it's because Jarom is smiling in that one and NOT in the second.
They're SO cute....it's okay that you missed my party for them, but now you OWE me!! ;)

I LOVE THESE PICTURES!!! And I so love the pink and brown... I thought about doing that with ours, but I would be the only one in pink, so not a lot of balance. You guys look so awesome!! I like them both, but I have to agree with everyone-- I like #1 the best.

Top picture FOR SURE! You are posed perfectly, and Carter looks so handsome. I really think these turned out wonderfully.
