2011 Family Photo Shoot

I am slightly neurotic when it comes to Christmas cards.  And pictures of my family.  And combining those two things.  Checking the mail in December is one of my favorite things and I get so excited to design OUR card and send it to everyone we love.  Needless to say, I was not proud of myself when I realized that November was more than halfway over and I didn't have our picture planned yet.  We have taken a yearly family shot for the last 3 years and since last year was a silly pajama theme, I was really excited to get some pictures to hang year round.  My neighbor Jenny just happens to be getting her own photography business off the ground, so she agreed to meet us at the park down the street from the house and take a few shots.  I cut it WAY too close and am going to have a hard time getting these cards to folks before Christmas, but I LOVE how the pictures turned out!  Colin adores Jenny and practically lives at that park, so it made for a somewhat peaceful and easy-going shoot.  I am so thankful to know the right people!  :-)  Jenny and I grew up in the same town and attended the same school and then just happened to end up as neighbors!!  Crazy!  And I think it is so great that I will always have the memory of our park in these photos.  No matter where we end up in our lives, we will remember the little park where Colin first played and spent all his time!  Is there anyone sappier than me?  No?  ;-)
