My Blogstalker's Family...

These are SOOO long overdue. I am so sorry! Kim and I were talking tonight about how behind we are getting everything done for everyone. It seems that the closer I get to Christmas, the less motivated I am to be on the computer in the evenings! In any case, I have started getting threatening emails from friends and family to blog more pictures; so, here is the first batch!

While in Minnesota for Thanks-Christmas, my new niece Amelia was baptised. My cousin Nicholas and his wife Amy were co-sponsors of baby Amelia (pictures of Amelia's baptism to follow at a later date!), and afterwards we all headed into the library at the church for a few pictures. Amy is a confessed blogstalker, and I know she's probably been anxious to see these pictures. Unfortunately for us and fortunately for her, her kids were so darn well-behaved during picture time, that all of the pictures I took of them are very similar! Amy, why aren't your kids crying and trying to escape the camera lens like everyone else's kids??? I figured it has to be one of three things: You take their pictures ALL the time so they're used to it; you never take their pictures so they were intrigued by what was going on; OR, you threatened their lives and their next ten meals if they didn't behave! Which one was it?!!

In any case, here are my three favorites. Enjoy!

Awesome pictures Amy!!! You'll have to get prints of those from Kelly!! The kids do sit so darn well, as opposed to my child who hit and kicked to get away during pictures (notice, no pictures of my family on any blogs!)

I remember when Savannah was just little and I was in church in Clearbrook for some reason or another I couldn't believe how well she sat. Never made a peep. and just this past weekend we had lunch with Nick and Amy and my little guy was a terror 3 plus time outs and finally ended up in the car with hubby, while Daniel and Matthew were angels. ARG!! what is your trick?
