Family Picture Time

My favorite part of Christmas cards is looking at the pictures people send, so I like to return the favor by sending one of us. Usually we wait until sometime in December before we take pictures, so I'm feeling really ahead of the game! The last 2 years we used a tripod. It was a lot harder, took a lot longer, and we had fewer pictures that actually turned out. Eric refused to do it that way this year. Carrie had offered to take pictures for us, but we never know very far in advance when we'll be down her way. I called Thursday to see if she could meet us in Salt Lake on Friday. It was really short notice, but luckily for us, she was willing! The kids tried really hard to be cooperative, but little Addie bean gave up about 10 minutes into it. Later we found out she was sick! We felt like pretty terrible parents.





Thanks Carrie! We love them all!

I LOVE these pictures! (good job, Carrie!) The poses are so cute and fun and more spontaneous than poses! I hope there's even more to look at! I may be a tad bit prejudice, but you are an adorable family!
Love, mom/grammy

I think getting a picture of everyone in an entire family, happy and looking at the camera is an almost impossible feat! Especially with little ones. Which reminds me...I need to do pictures soon too!

Carrie said...

i had fun! thanks for letting me do them!

PS I really love the one of Addie running to you and the one of Eric and Jack walking and Jack has a big smile and is looking up at Eric (you can't see the top of Eric but I can tell Jack is really happy to be talking and walking with his dad.) - and the one of the four of you - and just all of them! Hope Addie feels better soon!
