Family Pictures

I had a friend who offered to take our family pictures. She wanted to practice on us because she is starting her own photography business. She was fantastic! They are the first professional pictures we have ever had taken. Let's just say we had a bad experience a long time ago at a cheap photography place and I've been scared ever since. It makes it a little tricker with Jordyn too! She can get irritated pretty easily. But she did great! The boys had fun too. Evan was such a poser and we really had to work to get Carter to smile! I picked out our outfits last minute, but I was REALLY happy with how the colors turned out. We were so happy with the results of ALL the photos. I think I've looked through the pictures about a million times. Enjoy!

(bottom left photo is funny, we are looking in different directions. Trust me, it's so easy feat getting a bunch of little kids looking in the right direstion!)

And a few extras that I loved:

Halloween Mario Kart Style

Playing catch-up... again!

My little nephew, Clay, gave us the brilliant idea that we should have the kids be Mario Kart characters. I loved it! I worked on them for about a week, whenever I had a little bit of time. I thought the boys' cars turned out so cute. I thought Jordyn's would be the easiest since you could just wrap it around the wheelchair and she already has wheels, BUT that was not the case. It was hard to make it look like a car. But, it was still cute!

Princess Peach

I think we ended up going to three different Halloween events. First was the library. We got some GREAT reactions from everyone, they loved the costumes! It makes all the hard work worth it. And the fact that the boys loved the costumes too! There were a few other Mario and Luigi's (wearing store bought costumes) and they kept staring at Evan and Carter. I could just tell they were so jealous of the cars! Then the next night was our church party. Then Sunday night we did a little bit of trick-or-treating around our nephews neighborhood. I would say this year was another success!
