Family Portraits

Last weekend we were so blessed to be able to spend some time with Rusty's Aunt and Uncle and their kids. They live in a far away land known as Oklahoma. We don't usually claim those Okie's, since we're from Texas and all, but I guess these guys are worth claiming!
We didn't get to spend a lot of time with them, but it was a real treat to get to visit with them. We haven't seem them in such a long time. Hopefully we'll get to see them again soon.

Look at this rare moment caught on camera yesterday. It's a glimpse of what only happens once in a while. All three girls, sitting down, looking at the camera, at the same time. Usually times like these go undocumented, but I forced them to sit on the front porch so that I could at least try to get a good picture. I think I got pretty lucky!
And what is this??? It's a once a decade photo! I HATE being in pictures so much that it almost hurts, but I got in one. A.) We were at the beach with a gorgeous background B.)I need to be in more pics so the kids will remember what I looked like and C.)I was forced by Rusty's Aunt.
Just kidding, she didn't force me. I was sort of forcing Hannah in case you can't tell. My arm isn't that tight around her, just tight enough that she can't get away.

Have I mentioned how ready I am for school to be done?? Well, I am. We don't get out for another two weeks. I looked up my flight information today and cannot wait to hop on that plane. The kids are so excited to see their grandparents and get to do whatever they want, I mean, spend the night and play all the time.

Have a good Wednesday. I can't believe the week is already half way over. The days are flying by.

Great job on the picture of your girls. I rarely can get a good 1 of our 2 together and there are just 2 of them. I blame it on the age and just hope it will get better as they get older. Don't they understand how happy it would make their moms just to have a decent pictures of all the kiddos?? HA!! And good for you for getting in the family pic, definitely need to do that more often. Even if you don't like it your girls will appreciate it as they get older. I bet you are so excited for your trip to tx. If you in dallas ever you should let us know.
