for my mama…

Last October when my mom and stepdad had their annual family get-together, Mom requested an updated picture of her grandbabies.  Since she gave birth to me and all, there was only one acceptable answer to that inquiry.

The fact that it took three months for me to actually show her the first image from that little session speaks nothing to my love and appreciation for my mom.

It does, however, speak everything to the state of my mind.

Our sweet Charlotte had been stung by a bee earlier in the day which resulted in a dose of Benadryl. Which resulted in lots of pictures that looked like this…

(Can you say dazed and confused?)

I really loved these last two little outtakes since they remind me of my sister and myself when we were the girls’ age.  

And if this image had indeed been my sister and me, it would have been titled,

 “I’ll let go if you let go.”

Anyone else with a hair-pulling sister out there?

Thanks, sweetie. You know I don’t mind waiting. I know you have lots to do but I sure do love all of these. Can’t wait to order the latest annual canvas of the kiddos! And it was so nice to be reminded of our fun (mostly) time in October!! Love you!

so cute! maybe things will slow down eventually! i’m learning that life with two can be difficult but i’m sure that adding a business and traveling makes it harder. my sister and i are six years apart in age and we have never (and still don’t) have anything in common but my youngest is already the “hair pulling sister”. love the pics!

YES! LOL But to be fair she could say the same of me. Right? 😀

Beautiful! Love those outtakes!

No hair pulling. Tickling mercilessly. They still talk to me though.

My little sister was a shoe thrower but I would always be the one to get in trouble. I guess that is what big sister’s are for.

Oh so cute!! I’m so impressed you got them all in that first shot! That is amazing (coming from a mom of 3 girls 😉
