Last time I was visiting my little oasis (a.k.a my mom's house in Utah) my cute sister-in-law Dayna called and asked me if I'd take some family pictures for her. K. I am so NOT a professional photographer nor do I have ANY skills at taking family portraits. And I basically told her uh...no. And to quote my husband "but I'm not mad you asked." (Which by the way is one of the most annoying things my husband says. Especially since he gets such a kick out of himself every time he says it.) Moving on. So I said no and Dayna said please and I said no again and Dayna said please again and at some point I finally caved. But I gave her full disclosure that I didn't know what I was doing and the pics may turn out looking worse than bad. Well - a lot of them did turn out worse than bad...but a few turned out ok. So I thought I'd share them tonight. You know. Just so Dayna thinks twice before convincing me to do this again. ;) (love you Dayna)
And here they are with their adorable baby (Kole's partner in crime) Drew. I'm so impressed with this picture. Getting Drewski to hold still and smile for a picture was quite the feat. I snapped about 20 pics of them in this pose and prayed for a miracle! We lucked out with this one shot.
A couple of shots of the girls in the family - Dayna's mom, sister, sister in-laws, and nieces. How adorable are her little nieces...and their dresses!?
Here we have a traditional family shot.
And here we have a not so traditional family shot. Aren't these mustaches fun!? Dayna made them all with some black felt and sticks. We had quite a fun afternoon together at my mom's. She made the mustaches while I cleaned out my mom's pantry. :)
They are an adorable couple and I'm proud to claim them as my own! Most of the time.
We tried to get a picture with Drew in the frame but it just wasn't happening. I took a whole lot of pictures very similar to this one. Oh... this picture makes me dread family pictures with my own firecracker this year! Maybe I'll just get a picture of me and Kenny with the girls and then photoshop Kole in... hmmm.... I am a professional now you know.
To thank me for the photoshoot Dayna made me this delicious fruit pizza. Homemade mustaches and fruit pizzas!? I've been calling her Martha ever since.
ATS Outdoors. So if you or anyone you know is interested in archery, check out his site and I promise he'll take good care of you! Or at least "like" him on facebook to help him get things up and running. I love my little bro. and would really appreciate it!
Oh and Austin...you can show your appreciation for the shout out with my Christmas present this year. I'm thinking boots....Nordstrom boots....I can send you a link if you need some guidance. I'm super nice that way.
