Major Photo Catch-Up

Fasten your seatbelts people....this is quite a ride. A lot of photos of things from the past couple of weeks that I couldn't or didn't do a single blog post about....so the result is a great big blob of a blog post that will skip from that to this and have many pictures to guide you through the whirlwind.

First - a left over picture of Lillie's Christmas photo shoot....just because Lillie isn't featured much in this whirlwind.


Now here is a pic of the boys in the Santa hats that their Gran got them for Christmas - almost a genuine smile/face on every single one of them....now that's rare!


In an attempt to get a good photo of each of the kids, I held a photo shoot with the two younger boys a day or so after Lillie's. Going through this process three times with no clear cut winner just left me frustrated with myself, my children and my camera....so I will leave it to a professional somewhere, at some point in the new year.

Avery -

Huston -

I must admit the little buggers are cute even when they make their mommy crazy.

In this next photo you will find Isaiah braving the wind and the moderately cold to freezing temperatures with his Gran to ring the bell for the Salvation Army in front of one of the stores here in town. He did great and they got quite a few contributors. I must add right here that not only was I kinda glad I wasn't the one standing in the cold for 1 1/2 hours that day, I am also quite glad that I didn't have to listen to the constant very loud ringing of that bell that Isaiah had going there. Yes that is the point, but yes I believe it would have sent me into insanity. Just the 5 minute visit here had me pleading with him to ring the bell more gently. Gotta give that Gran some credit on this task.


Now some more fun in the snow. Isaiah and Huston went out this afternoon to scrape together and play in the last thin remainings of the snow. They decided the biggest fun was to roll down the hill in our side yard, over and over again.

At the top, waiting for mom to give the go...


Going down....


Made it to the bottom of the hill...


That was fun lets do it again....

And finally I will show you this a peek into the crazy dad factor. My husband Steven works at a bank that sponsored a festival here in town. Tonight he grabbed an extra volunteer staff shirt from the festival that was a little large (a triple extra large to be specific). The boys had fun posing for pictures in the shirt. Ok, ok, dad had fun making the boys pose for pictures in the shirt. You can probably tell by Isaiah's face that he was not quite thrilled with the activity. But fun never the less...

There, it's done, the ride is over and I now have these pictures tucked away for memories' sake. I will bore you no longer.

Great pictures...thanks for sharing. I love Huston and Avery's shirts for their pictures.

I just thought I'd share that I stumbled upon this blog tonight and had to do a double take...
