Christmas Pictures- A Sneak Peak

We had our annual Christmas pictures taken yesterday and we are so excited to see the final product! The babies were so cute. Anthony was a little stinker but I think we got a couple of cute ones of him. Michael was a show off. He wanted to be in EVERY picture and was really hamming it up. He is usually so reserved, it was cute to see this side of him. Jakob and Jaileigh are always great at pictures. They even know how to "pose".

So here is the Sneak Peak- of course these are not professionally done. We remembered once during the whole picture taking process to take a couple of photos. Our photographer Allison Hayes will have our pictures ready after Thanksgiving, so look for a better update then.

It's Fall Finally

Digging in the dirt

Jakob and Anthony- I've decided that Anthony is a little camera shy (like Grandma) because I can never find pictures of him. He's either camera shy or always on the move and too fast for me to catch.

Jakob getting ready to bowl

Jaileigh is still refusing to play outside so here is a silly inside picture of her. Her daddy put his Harley kerchief on her head and she has her mom's socks on. She is stylin'!

Practicing already - this is her new style, no clothes. She screams everytime I put clothes on her now.

Attempt at a family photo- Michael, Jaileigh, Jakob, and Anthony
This was the first attempt
Meltdown- Mommy's lap isn't big enough for all of us anymore
Daddy is so proud of Jaileigh's outfit. Jaileigh is not liking it one bit.

Kissing Siblings!

Instead of kissing cousins we have kissing siblings. The babies think this game is hilarious!

Daddy's Birthday Party

We had a "surprise" pie party for Mikes birthday. He doesn't like cake but he really likes pecan pie, so we had a pie party.

1st Radio Flyers

Mike bought the babies Radio Flyers for a Christmas present but then he was too excited to wait, so we had Christmas a little early this year.

Michael is all alone because Jaileigh was being a little stinker and wouldn't get in. Anthony and Jakob are partners in the other wagon.

Jakob was being shy and would NOT look at the camera. He was being so silly.

I went over closer to him and finally got him to look up but he wouldn't smile.

Here is what happens when Jaileigh is put in the wagon.

To get a group photo, I had to climb in with them. Luckily the wagons hold up to 200 lbs. The boys thought it was funny that I climbed in with them.
