Merry Christmas

I was a complete and total slacker this year and didn't make my own Christmas cards and I opted to go the photo card route.  I'm really excited to send some of my absolute favorite photos I took of the kids this fall and love how it turned out. Andrew went with me to scope out a setting for a family shoot I did a little while ago and he was my handsome little helper and let me take some practice shots of him.  That little "peace" photo was one of my favorites of him that day.

This is what happened toward the end...
He treats me like I'm Paparazzi - it's a love/hate relationship with my lens... But he saves his 1000 hugs and kisses for me each day.  He's such a little love.

Katie, she's my princess.  Everything dressy and twirly and just pure "love".  The photo of her was taken for my photography class and it quickly became my all-time favorite of her.  I think it's the light shining through her amazing, chocolate eyes.

How can I deny her anything?  Oh right, it's that money thing.  She's such a sweetie.

I've posted this photo of Avery before, but it's rare she gets in front of the camera and doesn't stick out her tongue or squeeze her eyes shut tight.  That girl...

She's my no-nonsense girl.  No ribbons.  No fancy hairdos.  Certainly no dresses.  She's just like me!  My Mini Me.

Have a wonderful Holiday and fabulous New Year.  See you back soon!
