The Winning Spring Photos

We took photos a couple of weeks ago for Mother's Day gifts and because we really needed some new ones! It took over 50 pictures and some crazy aunts and uncles to get a few that were really pretty good. :)


My Favorite! Everyone is smiling!

Our three sons. They adore each other! And yes, that's my arm making sure Ty didn't fall - I tried to edit it out when we made prints. :)


I think this one is just funny...it's a bird, it's plane, it's a.... :) Ty could care less. :)
And finally, one of my sweetie and me. We have relatively few photos together so I wanted to make sure we got one this time. :)

As you can imagine, there were many, many outtakes. The boys weren't crazy about the photo session but they humored us and I'm so glad. The pictures made great gifts and I wanted some for our home, too. :)

Wow, great photos!! The first one is perfect! Amazingly perfect. The one of the older boys pointing and Ty oblivious is very funny.

Those are all definitely prize-worthy. I love the one of the three boys and your arm. They are so precious.

Your boys are absolutely adorable! Love the one of them pointing to the sky..and Ty just sitting there like "What's the big deal?" So cute.

Oh, I am so far behind! What a great family photo! I am so jealous! A photo with the whole family smiling is on my "list to do in '09" :). Really. Isn't it impossible with three kiddos???

I am so in love with that picture of Calvin with Pippi. Can you believe how he has grown up? Where oh where have our babies gone?

What a garden! Wish you could post pictures! I would love to see how you manage with such a small yard (assuming yours is about like ours). Do the boys still have a place to play, or have you just devoted it mostly to garden space? This year I have a few things over at Mom's. It's so handy just right across the street, and nice that she can take care of it for me until harvest ;).

It's so funny but I have to remind myself to ask someone to take a photo of me.
I'm always getting photos of Charles and Marcus.

What great pictures! Your boys get cuter everyday (if that is even possible)!
