Merry Christmas!

I'm know, I'm behind on posts, but I have good reasons.  I just started a new job and between that and preparing for Christmas my days turn into nights, etc.   I was fortunate enough to spend Christmas Eve with all of my husbands family.  It's been about 18 months since we were all together so I have to say we had a great Christmas! 

So the babies saw each other back in September, but I always love a cousin picture :)  It's getting harder since they are more mobile...

The last picture we have of all the siblings is when Jen & I were prego.  It's definitely time for a new one :)

And since we were taking pictures, we might as well get one of the whole family :)

Merry Christmas!!!

Milligan Family

I was fortunate enough to spend this morning with the Milligan family, well actually the Milligan & Beights families :)   This gorgeous little girl is six months old and I had a blast taking pictures of here.   I'm only going to post a few pictures so that the rest are a surprise.

This picture might just be my favorite of all time!

She looks just like a baby doll :)

Beautiful like her mommy

It was great meeting you and Thank you for driving all the way up here in the rain!  Oh yeah... many thanks for letting me get my baby fix!

Another picture that makes me smile :)

Yet another picture that is far from perfect that I absolutely love.  It captures my son 100%!

I just wish I could have gotten him to stand still for just a second...

3 1/2 years

Since December has filled up quickly, I've decided to try and stay ahead of the game.   I went ahead and took my baby girl's 3 1/2 year pics a couple weeks early.

Little Man ~ 18 Months

My little guy won't be turning 18 months for another couple of weeks, but lately he's been accident prone and I thought it would be best to take his pictures while his face was free and clear of bruises and scratches.

18 months, already?!  Where has the time gone?

Beights Family

Today I had the pleasure of meeting the Beights family. They are such a nice family and kudos to them for braving this COLD weather!

This picture doesn't really show how cold it was, I promise it was FREEZING!  I love all the warmth in this picture :)

I love the look on this little guys face

These pictures are always a favorite :)

Airborne!  :)

Santa should be really good to this little guy.  He was a trooper the whole time!

I thought it was a great idea to go to a Christmas tree farm for pictures.  Here's the family tree before it was cut down.

On the tractor ride back to the barn
It was great to meet all of you today.  I hope you're enjoying your beautiful tree!

Christmas Pics

Most of our Christmas cards have been sent out.  Here's some of the pictures we ended up using.

Trimming the tree

The day after Thanksgiving is pajama and decorating the tree day in our house :)

I don't think he was actually hanging an ornament, more like pulling one off, it's his specialty ;)

Today was the day we wouldn't show our face to the camera....

This is what our tree initially looked like, not any more...

The Hartlauf Family

I had the pleasure of spending this afternoon with one of my good friends and her beautiful family.   Her little boys are adorable and I couldn't believe how much they had grown since the last time I saw them.

This little cutie is turning one next week.

He's getting a few new teeth and wasn't feeling very well :(

I think we still managed to get a few pics of him

He's just starting to walk...

Here's his big brother, could he look a little more like his momma????

The whole family

This is definitely one of my favorites :)

Fun time with daddy

Erica and I go way back, like way back to Jr. High.  It was said back then that we strongly resembled one another, still holds true today :)   

Unfortunately, the little guy was taking a break, it would have been great to have him in this picture.  I think it's still pretty great :)

Thank you for letting me spend a few hours with you today.  It was great catching up!!

I was holding strong on not visiting Santa until after Thanksgiving but today I caved.   My husband had the day off, we were running errands and even better, no line for Santa.   I can't claim this picture as my own, but I'm pretty happy with it for a Santa pic.

An Afternoon with a Princess

My daughter is the perfect mix of tomboy and princess.  Today the princess side came out.   After a drama-filled morning because of a teeny tiny scratch on her knee, she wanted curls in her hair, wanted pictures taken in the leaves (she's definitely my daughter) and wanted to wear her princess dress.   It's been a busy day :)
