Family Pictures

What's that saying?...
"All because they fell in love" or "All because they said I do"

Whatever the saying, I am quite proud of these amazing spirits that came about all because John and I fell in love and decided to spend eternity together. It brings immense joy!
He brings me immense joy! (Even though you can tell from his face that pictures are the last thing he wants to be doing. He loves me!)


We had about 10 minutes of good light on Sunday and so we decided on a whim to get some family pictures by my uber talented friend Britt! 10 minutes is not a lot of time to get 6 people to cooperate--especially an almost 2 year old--but Britt rolled with it and was fantastic!
Did I mention it was freeeeezing?!







(Notice Owens new boo-boo--I didn't photoshop this one out.) He put a blanket over his head at pick up at school the other day and thought he was so funny giggling and scaring everyone and then ran full force into the iron gate with his forehead (about a millimeter from his old scar.) That's my Owen! Where was I, you ask? Talking to the ladies while thinking to myself, I should probably go take that blanket off of Owen's head before he runs into something. Too late. Story of my life!

I love this little (big) family of mine!

"All because two people fell in love"...that's it.

is it possible that you are actually getting hotter as you get older!? you are like a beam of light surrounded by beautiful children! although, john looks like he is in a little bit of pain in the first shot. still, he could pass for a 22 year old! will he ever age?

Camille said...

Those are really great family photos. You all look wonderful!

Oh, and I think the saying is: All because two people fell in love. I love that saying too.
