New Family Photos

It was time for new family photos.  For weeks I was trying to set a Saturday afternoon aside but it never worked out.  Getting to a point where everyone was feeling good and healthy was no small feat.  Finally, yesterday was the day.  I asked Caleb's girlfriend Taylar and her sister Chelsea if they would take the pictures for us.  We drove to a place not too far from our house and took nearly 100 pictures.  Here are the best!

While taking these pictures a train came.  It scared Nolan and Oliver.  Thankfully we were about done.









Finally we will have an updated picture of all of us on our wall.  And Christmas cards are done too!

Love the pics, especially the one your chose for the header. So much fun. Although I have to say, for family portraits I tend to love the more coordinated apparel, not necessarily matchy matchy, but a set color(s)/theme wise. I'm sure that is much easier for a family of 4 or 6 than a family of 19 though. haha.


Also, random question -- is Oliver your last baby or are you waiting to see what the Lord lays on your hearts about adding anymore children?

What a beautiful family! Dennis is such a ham and I love it! Every pic he seems to stand out with his Joe Cool stance! Thank you for sharing the good and the bad and showing people that as long as God is in control, everything will be fine, not perfect but fine! LOL

Fantastic photos!!! You have an incredibly beautiful family.

I want to share about a new organization to help the orphan that is getting off of the ground in our region and can use some prayers.

We live in an area that is not known for its love or compassion for the orphan so I was thrilled to find out about this organization.

Great pictures. I cannot believe you got several where everyone is looking and looking happy! It's hard with our family of four (that would be two parents and two kids) ... is there something wrong with us? LOL.

Love, love, love these photos! Can you imagine what the pictures will be like once you guys have grandkids? :D I can't get over how fast all the kids are growing up. William looks like a young man, Anna is stretching up and even Oliver looks older!
