We went to church today all decked out in our Christmas attire. Since we were running late, I thought it would be best to try and attempt pictures after church instead of before. After mass, we ended up going to IHOP upon Carter's assistance. When we got home, we attempted Christmas pictures. Let me tell you, it was NOT an easy task! Hence, why I've asked for a camera remote for Christmas. Me jumpin up and down at 34 weeks to push the camera button was a workout! And man handling our kids so they would be still wasn't easy either :) How I was wishing we had just gone to Target but at least these pictures are virtually free!
And after these, can you tell why THIS:
is as good as it's going to get!
I can take photos pretty easily of Carter and Olivia separately, but together, Olivia won't sit for 1 second without crawling away! She's such a mess! Carter, as long as he's being bribed, is usually pretty cooperative.
We met over nine years ago and have been married for seven years. We have traveled all over together, have shared good times and bad, and now spend most of our time chasing our kids around! We believe God chose us for each other and we strive daily to keep him at the center of our marriage.
Our energetic six year old, and firstborn. He's a self procalimed genius. He loves playing with his friends, watching anything on PBS and VeggieTales, building with blocks, practicing his cartoon artist skills. He rules the roost and we couldn't imagine it any other way.
Our three year old daughter, a precious princess with her daddy wrapped around her finger. She is the daughter I always knew I would have long before I ever got married. She is a smiler and talker and lover of food, hugs and kisses, making puzzles, helping mommy in the kitchen, and loves both of her brothers (mostly!) She is a budding ballerina but loves the play in the mud and wrestle with the boys too. She is the most beautiful girl we have ever seen and we look forward to watching her grow and change over the next several months.
Our baby of the family...a walking, talking destructacon. He is hillarious, keeps us on our toes and is the funniest little toddler going on grown man I've ever seen!
