Our Big Beautiful Family

Finally Family Photos

Why are family photo sessions one of the most miserable and dreaded experiences? Or maybe it's just me? It seems like you have to move heaven and earth to get one good picture of your family together.

We had planned to do an Easter picture, but of course it poured that day! So last Sunday when I woke up and saw the beautiful sun shinning, I decided to iron all new outfits, and get everyone in their Easter yellow before 9am church, and called our dear freind Amy to come over after church. Of course Quinn and Stella happen to get bruises on their foreheads and it happens to be a crazy busy Sunday, but it was, "now or never!", "do or die!"

The "stars all aligned" for 20 minutes that afternoon, and Amy took beautiful pictures of our family. I couldn't be happier! Yay we did it..... now to get them framed on the wall.

So Stella got her cute glasses back in February, and it has been a bit of an adjustment for our family. She is still getting used to them, and we are still getting used to all the attention it draws from people in the grocery store check out line.
Audrey being the sweetheart that she is, thought that it would make Stella feel better if her sister were wearing glasses too. So she popped the lenses out of her sun glasses, and can be seen wearing them around most every day.

The New World of Blogging!

I was totally "one of those" people that snubbed my nose at blogging and adamantly declared that, "I don't have the time for it". But as I found myself sending a dozen emails one day with pictures of the kids, I realized.... it was time. So this is a whole new world for me, and until I figure it out, it may be a very simple world. For now here are a few photos from the last couple of months.

The Missing Child in the Easter Photos

If you were thinking, "I thought the McNames had 4 kids" after my first blog, you were right. Needless to say Quinn consumed quite a bit of chocolate Easter morning, and was passed out most of the day. So he missed "family photo time", but we'll catch him one of these days.
