Family Pictures 2011

3 weeks ago, we had our family pictures taken by my very talented and beautiful friend Elise. Dan and I were a little skeptical about how they would turn out because the only professional photos we have had taken of us were our wedding pictures. We did not like them at all, and were worried we're just not a very photogenic couple. How could I have doubted Elise and her mad photography skills? Both Dan and I got a little teary eyed when we saw the final product. I am being serious, we almost cried over pictures! They turned out better than we could have imagined.

Family picture day is always a little stressful. Something about finding coordinating outfits without being too matchy matchy, locating the right spot, and counting on the weather to be perfect wears me out. Dan and I had to re-assure Elise a few times that we are truly in love, despite a few 'discussions' we had in front of her. Yup, we're normal. However, I am so glad we went through the hassle. I am also grateful to have such a patient husband who is willing to go along with the cheesy poses.

Ohhh good gracious, these are so neat!!! What a stunning mama you are, and don't get me started on Max. We really do live parallel lives, I think it every time I see your blog. I have to resist saying so every time you post. However I did not have to do the CIO method which thank heavens above, because I know I would have to go to Mexico to not hear the cries. And I don't fancy Mexico.

Your "when we move back to Utah" comment is now going to keep me up at night in anticipation since I KNOW Max and P will be bosom buddies and soulmates???...just saying. I also need to know when Dan is just going to put the white coat aside and come work at Kohlers or something. Major opportunities here. You keep me posted!!

These are so adorable. Brock and I were looking at them the other night and making comments about Max's many different faces. He is so so adorable. We both can't get over that you two have a kid now!
