Yes, it really was THAT cold.

Here's the long-promised family photo shoot post. First off, a HUGE thank you to Heather for taking the pictures, all the touch-ups and fancifying, and our Christmas card. Seriously, I'd be up a creek without her...or at least fabulous family pictures-less. She seriously saved the day and is uber-talented to boot! Thanks so much again Heather! Oh, and thank you to my mom for the girls' adorable outfits. I'm just too cheap to buy that many matching accessories myself ;)

I'm feeling lazy and short on time, so I'm just going to post the pictures straight up. Y'all already know our names, so why bother with captioning? Oh, and if you're wondering, yes, it was friggin' cold. Right around 40 degrees if I remember correctly. Yes, that is why Scarlett is so un-smiley in most of the pictures and yes, that is why the girls have purple lips (you didn't think it was lipstick, did you?). Anyway, onto (more than a few of) our favorites from the shoot...

In case you're wondering, Georgia is attempting to kiss Ezra.

Since it was so cold, Spencer would hop around with the kids in order to help them stay warm. It was adorable.

If you really want to know, the smile was only because I was reminding him of our bribe...I mean reward...ok, bribe.

I can just hear it now...eww, gross, get a room!
Let's just say this is the one I'll be sending with Spencer to work ;)


Hope you enjoyed! I'll go over the other pictures when I pick them up from Heather, so there just might be a second half coming if I find some more. We'll see...

ps~I know, I know, I couldn't resist a few captions. You know me too well.

Happy holidays from our family to yours!
