More pictures! Woot!

I feel like I am just posting pictures way too much lately.  But we are so lucky to know people who take great photos and also?  Am attention whore.

Luckily, we got our family photos the weekend before all of the leaves fell off of the trees.  The bad part was that it was 34 degrees (according to my car) and Olivia was having none of that nonsense.  I don't think you'd ever guess that we were all freezing our lady parts off (or, you know, man parts, but since there are so many ladies in the house I figure that is most relevant).

I get to live with these guys!

All of the credit goes to my friend Janet, who is super fun with kids.  While I was getting tense and mean with Olivia, she was singing cute songs and asking funny questions and just generally being a nicer person than me.  She and Olivia became fast friends.

Pretty much what I look like all the time except usually
I am in yoga pants and my hair is greasy enough to fry eggs.

There are so many more good ones, but I haven't decided which ones to use for Christmas cards.  And you know Christmas will be just RUINED if someone sees our card picture before card time. 

But anyway.  I can't be the only one thinking Christmas cards already, right?  I'm already scoping out all the sites and trying to pick designs and it isn't even Halloween.  It is madness but I can't stop it.

Most importantly, though - today is Mark's birthday!  Happy birthday, husband.   He is celebrating by doing yard work all day after we spent all night listening to Adelle cry for no apparent reason at all except I'm A Baby And Am Required To Occasionally Be An Asshole YAY WAH ENJOY STAYING UP ALL NIGHT SUCKERS!  Yippee!!  The fun never ends at our house.

It's definitely not too late to think about Christmas cards. I ordered mine two weeks ago! All the cool kids get their cards now.

Already planning the kids' clothes for our photos, which I'm hoping to take soon (you know, before we're buried in snow, which is really hard to say when it's supposed to be 80 here...). I have no idea why I'm obsessed. But to answer your question, no, it isn't too early to start thinking about :)

I was thinking Christmas cards so long ago that the websites didn't even have their designs posted yet. Ugh. Get with it people! Your family is beautiful! Post more pics!

We took our pics yesterday, and of course it was almost 80 degrees and since it is Iowa in October, I planned for sweaters. I was sweating. Lots.

Just got done reading your entire blog. So much love going out to you guys. Not sure how you were able to make me simultaneously ugly cry and laugh but you have a gift. Happy birthday to your husband.
