Relations

Wow. Wow. We pulled it off. Impromtu fam pics with all the grandkids over Thanksgiving. No matching outfits, no candy in the camera bag, no well-behaved kids. Totally awesome. Dad was loving every minute of the mayhem.. (not!) In the end I think we got a Christmas Card-worthy shot for mom and dad and a few cute ones in between.




What most of the pics looked like



My kids and Maggie's tongue




Millie and Shelby: BFF Cousins / girly girls with attitude



Maggie with Gpa Dave




Hot Stuff Owen









The one that worked.. you think?


And when it was all said and done, we loaded in our car and headed back "home" to this.

Wonderful photos. I can't pick a favorite. Except anything with Millie in it--I'm partial to those.

Too bad for you, having to go back to paradise in the desert.

First of all, these are the cutest pictures ever.

Second of all, I love that Uncle Dave is showing his true Ute spirit by wearing red and black! :-)

Love the one with the tree. That needs to be blown up huge. You are the best.

You really can't complain about the weather down there. So jealous!!!

I can't believe how cute your kids are! Well, truth be known they come from some pretty hot genetics. Cole will be dating before you know it. Your so talented!

Holly Park said...

Oh my! Such great pics!! And I can't believe you managed to get all of them smiling for the camera! We can't even manage it with the two so we have yet to do a real shoot. Geez...
