Check Christmas Cards Off the List

So last weekend for some reason last weekend I decided we really needed to take advantage of the gorgeous Fall colors and have family pictures taken. After a quick phone call to our talented Uncle Brooke and a little craziness finding the right outfits I convinced the family this was exactly what I wanted for my birthday.

For the most part they cooperated but there were more than a couple like this.

My kids get their silliness from their dad.

He even put me in a tree. Have to admit it sort of makes a fun picture though.


We did get some that were just what I wanted though.

I cannot tell you how great it feels to already have the Christmas cards ordered!

I am so jealous I can taste it. My family photographer isn't available until November (stupid trip to Hawaii) and I hate having to wait that long. I like to have them done by the end of October.

Your pictures turned out so cute. You are so ahead of the game. I have our picture but just haven't ordered the cards. I have so many things I need to get done. I need to get myself a "wife" and leave her list. :)

I love Brittany's outfit. Totally worth the fit of ambition it took to get it made!

Oh Michelle, the pictures are great! I just started thinking of what picture we'll use this year.
Lucky girl!
