Family Pics

Here is one of my favorite shots from our weekend family photo shoot with Kelsey. It was cold, crisp & beautifully clear and I think this picture captured every bit of it!

This was our second outfit change. I wanted some bright, casual & candid family pictures for the house. Something that really captures "us" and I think Kels did it. I love the ones I have seen and I haven't even been through the whole disk yet!! You can bet there will be more to come but some I am saving to use in layouts so you might have to wait a while to see them!

Being the die-hard fan of Miss Mint's Paint Box that I am, I have to say I am totally embarrassed that I did not pick up her painted frames until last week. What was I thinking?!! I LOVE them! They have been showing up in everything I am scrapping. (The photo above uses one of the double color frames)

I haven't been my cheerful, talkative, scrapping self lately. I can't believe how much having a sick child can take out of you! I'm exhausted, distracted, run-down and always on the verge of a headache simply because I can't keep Aiden comfortable (and quiet) for any extended period of time. And it's been like this for two solid weeks. He saw the doctor yesterday and he has a big, fat sinus infection from back-to-back colds. (Luckily it hasn't gotten to his ears. We're on a hefty round of antibiotics to make sure it all clears.) Nevertheless, antibiotics can't work overnight and he was up at 4:30 belting his loudest, "emergency" scream because he was famished and wanted a bottle. After a short stand-off with me not wanting to begin early morning feedings again, I got up and fixed him a bottle when Brian's growls from under the covers began to sound more menacing than Aiden's furious wails. I can't fight two boys. I'm out-numbered. Let's hope this terrible cold passes before we leave for San Antonio on Thursday night because I have almost forgotten what my adorable, laughing little boy is like. I haven't seen him for quite a while.
