This is it!

This is it, our famous 5,4,3,2,1 portrait! And now it's over. Essa turned 2 yesterday so now they're 5,4,3,2,2! But that doesn't stop us! Since it snowed so heavily we went out to the studio today. Took the couch across the street to our brick wall and captured some great family snow scene shots. We're going to print them out big, mat and frame them, then put all the season portraits above our couch. What a great way to see how the boys are growing!

Another Blog! For Christian County Video

Well I'm now starting another blog. This will be blog number 3 that I help maintain (1 Janiece and I share the other 2 are pretty much mine). So the address is: and it's for our video business. We're going to be at the Springfield Wedding Expo this weekend so that'll be fun.
I'm OOVooing with my Dad tonight. Totally excited about that. I haven't talked to him in quite a while. He's away for work. I miss him, we're the same personalities and it helps! We also had a shoot tonight. It was great. I love their family! We were meant to be related ;-)
We went to the Discovery Center yesterday. That was a blast. We can tell the kiddos are getting older as it's SO much less stressful! It's just going to get easier in ways because the kids are now 5 and under instead of say 3 and under. But I'm eventually going to have 2 more kids! But we need a bigger car and house first. But Janiece and Adam got us an AWESOME Christmas present with the Discovery Center tickets! It's highly recommended!

I can only put on a couple of these pics because my computer is messing up AGAIN! Ugh, it's taken me forever to update this blog.
These are some pictures taken when we went through the Smokey Mountains. We went to Panama City for a week which was SO wonderful! We had a condo right on the beach and slept every night with the door open hearing the calming ocean waves. On our way home we went about 6 hours out of our way to go to IKEA in Atlanta, our favorite store! We almost had to have a straw to breathe in the vehicle because we bought so much cool stuff! Then we went through the Smokey's, of course it was out of our way too. But Ben and Adam had neither one seen the Smokey Mountains! Neither had our 5 kids, so it was well worth it. And we went right through the Cherokee Indian reservation so there were teepee's set up to attract attention and lots of little stores. We didn't stop as we were in a hurry since we were in a huge rush to get home, but it was great because we're studying Indians in school in the next couple of weeks. At least we could show the kiddos out the window.
Scroll down to the next post to see a few Florida pics too!

Ahh, a sweet vacation

Ok I don't have a ton of photos here. Most of them I put on my 8 gig jumpdrive and now I can't find my jump drive ugh! But here's a few. Also, we have our famous 5,4,3,2,1 photo on our business site. It's Our kids are 5,4,3,2,1 until January 27th so we made these huge numbers and took them to Florida for a shoot! But here are some from my little (not professional) camera although I did editing on a couple of them!
Aybrin had SO much fun running from the waves!

We went to Shell Island where these were taken. We rented a pontoon to get there and did our 5,4,3,2,1 pics on the island. We found some HUGE shells which I've now redone the boy's bathroom with! Fun, fun. Our cousin Ray made the 6 hour drive up to see us on Christmas Day then 6 hours back. That really made the week for Grandma!
Both the boys got buried but my camera died, so Janiece caught it. Here's one of Asher buried and one of me swinging Aybrin around. It was so fun!
