Fall Family Pics

What I'm loving about right now, is the fact that there weren't hidden camera's at our family pictures. I love how pictures always look so serene and the families always look like they have never had a bad day, rainbows wake them up every morning right before they have their Starbucks in bed while watching country music videos. Is that only my fantasy? Anyways....

Last weekend we made the mistake of traveling to visit family for the weekend and then rush home for our family pictures without taking time to get a good nap. Isabelle was NOT a happy camper. No amount of sweet snacks or her hilarious cousin entertainment would get her out of her funky mood. She didn't want to be held, but she didn't want to be put down. She continued to tear her bow out of her head and kick her shoes off her feet. This made me irritable (you're welcome for using a PG word there....because I was not using PG words in my head during the pictures), which in turn made me take it out on Mr. T, which in turn made him grouchy and us want to do anything BUT be all lovey dovey.



Don't let the cuteness fool you. She was being rude all day.

Thanks to a great photographer (if you're in the Tulsa area, let me know I'll hook you up) and the grace of God, we got a few good pictures. So now when we send our Christmas Cards we will look a little more like the rainbow family and a little less like Lindsey Lohan's family.

Great pictures! Family pictures are the worst... You build up so much anticipation and plan everyone's outfit and then your husband makes you mad, the baby won't smile at the camera and (in my case) you rip your pants at the park!
