a preview

My sister, Judy, lovingly informed me this evening that she clicks over to this blog several times a day hoping to see more of the pictures from our latest photo shoot with Candis.

I was just trying to hold off sharing until I had picked which ones I wanted to include on our Christmas cards. I still haven't decided but here are some that might not be on it.

But they might be. I'm not promising anything.

I believe this picture was taken a split second before Cate started squealing and pushing Danny away. You can see her left hand already starting to rise. I love the look on Danny's face. That's his "loving on Cate" face. For some reason, he clenches his teeth when he goes in to hug her.

And here's Cate punching me in the lower part of my double chin. I'm a little sad that Candis didn't do some photo lipo for me on that one. I love the reflection of the tree in the window though. And Dan has a nice smile. He'll think he doesn't, but he does.

I was really hoping for a good shot with Cate's shoes in it because I think they are so stinkin' cute. Too bad she was so stingy with her smiles. She didn't have a long nap so she was in a semi-grumpy mood. She's still adorable though.

Look at those eyes. And those eyelashes. And those eyebrows. He's such a handsome kid.

I'd like to think this was a smile, but I'm pretty sure it was just another beginning to a squeal of protest of one form or another. Still cute though.

This one's bringing a little tear to my eye. When did my babies get so big?

Still handsome.

I'm loving this picture of my non-blue-eyed little girl. I'd still love her if here eyes were blue, of course.

When I first saw this picture, I told Dan, "He's so cute even when he's not smiling." I love his smile but I also love his serious face. I think we got him to smile after this by playing the "Don't Smile" game. It works every time. He loves to disobey.

This is one of my favorites. Actually, I guess I think that about all of them!

Can Candis come to Vermont and do some pictures for me and Ethan? I love the new family pics - and I'm surprised that your babies have gotten so big too. I miss them. And you and Dan. But mostly them.

I'm sure she'd be glad to come to Vermont, JCM. It'll cost you though! She charges a travel fee. That might be a big one in your case. Just come here!

These are suuuuper cute. I had never heard of this place. I must be out of the loop on the cool photog spots.
