Family Portraits

Yeah, well, the whole picture thing is pretty funny. This first one is, by far, the best as it is taken from so far away and has the temple in it. I have many, wonderful, talented friends who take the most beautiful photos. I just cannot seem to get a good photo of everyone together... whether it is one of us taking the photo, or someone else. It is hard to find a time when both babies are awake and happy. Also, Abby has been on a "I'm going to only take photos with different silly faces and poses" phase. Some of these are Paul's dad's photos and he's a good photog, so I don't feel so bad. Here are some of our attempts:
Aren't you loving the peace sign sweats?
Here is "Ringo, the friendly dragon"
This is definitely a future family classic.

I love the pics. It's great to hear about their baby blessings. Those are very spiritual expriences and I appreciated that reminder. If we come back to utah next summer, we will look forward to meeting Lily and Liam. Wait---will you guys be there next summer? I know that's a ways off...Anyway, take care, get rest when you can, and smart move about the breast-feeding/bottle. Do what works and enjoy this as much as you can. You have a beautiful family and you are amazing :)

I love the pictures! I feel the same about getting family shots. I love to take pictures (so there are a bazillion of McKenzie), but there are maybe 4 or 5 with me in them since McKenzie was born because Micah does not like to take them... oh well.

What a picture! I love that last one! I am so happy for you and your beautiful family. You are amazing in all you went through to bring your little twins into this world--you deserve a medal! Or maybe just some uninterrupted sleep. Congrats!!!
