Merry Almost Christmas

WARNING – picture overload!!!   These are our Family pictures we did just a bit ago.  There are so many things to chat about, but I’ll stick to the most important points.  First, THANK YOU to Melissa of Melissa Barrick Photography for capturing these!!   Truly couldn’t be happier with how they turned out 🙂  Secondly, it was FREEZING!!  The girls totally toughed it out and didn’t complain.  Little guy…not so much.  Getting a smile out of Shay was a challenge…but Melissa captured it when they came.  I hope you enjoy!!

and this was us the majority of the time…laughing hysterically at the freezing cold and walking through fields “elegantly”.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!  I am so excited about this year in particular.  The kids are at such a FUN stage.  We are starting the weekend off with a trip to Christmas Town in Williamsburg, VA.
