12 Years Ago

This was supposed to be posted yesterday, but I just didn't get around to it.

Really, how do you go from this:

to this:

Hint, 12 years...

We finally got around to taking our new family pictures yesterday. Huge props to Keri who I had in Young Womens a LONG time ago, and is now interested in photography. Honestly, I don't think we're a great practice session, but hopefully it wasn't too painful. I kept thinking back to that day, 1 year ago when I gave Drew 11 bottles of Dr. Pepper with a nice EPT stick in the middle showing our lives were gonna change, once again -- for the better.

Although, if it was possible, she does make taking family pictures EVEN WORSE. So, tell me which one's your favorite. I was gonna number these, but I forgot. Sorry, but I am gonna print one up big (I'm not sure any of these are worth a canvas, I think I might wait til' P is a bit older and more smiley for the camera) -- and I'd love to hear which you think is the best.

And finally, some of my favorites, although they are a bit less than perfect .... if you can imagine that. :)

Happy Anniversary Mr. E., when we knelt across the alter oh so many years ago I don't think we ever pictured our life like this. I think I should entitle this little series "commitment" for that is what it shows. I was thinking about putting my subtitle "it's a crazy life, but it's our life" but those particular people show less than commitment. And for me, that's just not cool. Drew and I were talking a little bit about the sacrfices we give in order to have a happy marriage and I think it's admirable of people to do it, and to stick with it in these days. And you've gotta laugh a lot in marriage, or you'll cry... hence the subtitle I chose. BTW, bottom left picture is how P is most happy. She LOVES to stand up. Loves it. Go P.

    Aw Hil, those are so cute! I love the one of all of you sitting in front of the flowers, and I also love the one in the tree with the sun behind you. Happy 12th Anniversary!

  3. We share the same anniversary, but 1 year apart. Great family photos!

  4. Love the pictures! Love the new header.

  5. Go team. Love the pics. You guys are a handsome family FYI. And yes, you look awesome.

  6. Cute pictures! Seriously, how does 12 years change your life so dramatically!? I like the family picture under the bridge (or something)in the top set and I love the picture of the 3 kids with spencer laughing in the bottom set...
