Family Pictures!

OH BROTHER! Someone save me from the nightmare of blog design! I am done trying. This is not exactly how I want it to look, but the colors are right and everything is still in it's place. It will have to do until someone who speaks code can rescue it.

Did you notice my new fancy header? We got our family pictures in the mail today and our photographer, Darci, who I sort of met through her blog, threw that bonus in there for me. I love it!

Here is what's great about the images that Darci captured: it's the real us. I know it's downright impossible to get a photo with three small children in it where everyone is smiling and looking the right way at the same time. She managed to get some of those, though, just cause she's good like that. But, far and away, my favorites are the ones where we're just being us. And, right now, "us" is three little girls with completely different personalities whose agreeableness fluctuates from one moment to the next, and two adults holding on for dear life, and for love, and loving where that life has taken them.

Here are a few of my favorites from our photo session out at Bear Creek Park in Colorado Springs. Thanks, Darci!

Okay...I know it's a lot. It was really hard to restrain myself and 11 is the absolute least amount I could have possibly put in this post. Seriously...I couldn't have narrowed any more!
