Mady's Photography!

Okay, there is a very good chance I will take this post down and realize I am crazy so you'd better look now! Anyways, Mady (my 4 year old) loves taking pictures about as much as I do. Today she asked me if she could take pictures of her baby sister. I soon realized she meant my tummy! But, she didn't want to just snap a few, she wanted me to change clothes, set up the background, and everything! Any of you that know me personally know that I get HUGE when I am pregnant. So even though we have 10 weeks to go, I figured that my belly was big enough to let her take some pictures. She did a great job and had a lot of fun. Leighton stepped in for a few and she was laughing at him "belly bumping" me so hard I was afraid she'd drop the camera! Anyways, here are some of the pictures that she took of my gigantic pregnant belly!

Need a laugh??

I decided on a new "theme" for Christmas cards for the 4th time in the last two months. I searched and searched for the perfect matching pajamas for the kids, put up the Christmas tree, bought cookies for "Santa" and planned everything to a T. The only thing I didn't take into account is that my children suffer from photographer's child syndrome. They really really make me work for a decent picture of them! They know all of my tricks and don't fall for them anymore. The only thing that worked this year was to pretend like I was taking them with Leighton's viewmaster (he calls it a camera) and actually take them with my camera one handed! It was quite a difficult task. I can't share the actual cards until we've sent them out, but I thought I would show you some of the outtakes in case you need a good laugh! I will put one of Mady putting lights in the window too because it's cute.

And I thought this one looked like Santa walked in and caught Leighton eating his cookies!

There are so many things to be thankful this Thanksgiving. If I tried to make a list someone or something would be left out. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner prepared with love by my husband and got to spend the day at home. No traveling, no distractions, just us. It was great. One of the things I am most thankful for is my family. I am so thankful for everyone close to me, especially my husband and two (soon to be three) children. Here are a few pictures of Mady and Leighton!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Remember Michael??

I finished up Michael's session a while ago and thought I would share a few! We had to split his session into two to get his sports pictures done. I am going to throw in one with his beautiful mom too! Enjoy!

All moved in...

Well, we are all moved in. The move went well, but we are still living amongst boxes. Both kids and myself got sick and unpacking hasn't been easy! In case you've been wondering what I've been up to I thought I'd better post a few photos!
