family pictures

we took some family pictures this morning. we missed the brights of the season, but still found some color. ryan was, as usual, super excited. actually, he was pretty excited i didn't make him shave. we did a little photo swap with another darling family. i took their pictures. my friend took ours. and in between we warmed the little ones noses in the cars. it worked perfectly. 

i think brittani definitely got some keepers for us. 


juuuuuuuuuuust kidding. she actually got some great shots. i won't tell you how many times we heard the words "leeeeee-ah, leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-ah" this morning. but it worked. has anyone else noticed how fast miss ribbons' hair has grown since the big cut in february!? she's a regular rapunzel {stay tuned for halloween...}

It doesn't hurt that you and your fam are photogenic...both smiling AND pulling faces. I love the special connection that Ryan and Leah have when they're being photographed.

I love the pictures! and I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!
Ha twins think alike. Cristia Isabel ended up choosing rapunzel; If you only knew the whole story behind. All we had to do to get her the dress, and then the wig it's a different story on its own; since my rapunzel has dark hair. :)

so, i never noticed any crookedness with your teeth, but since you've mentioned the invisalign thing i feel i should tell you that your teeth look ridiculously straight! props to your doc! :) you're one gorgeous woman, and part of an incredibly beautiful family.

So fun! I think you got some really cute ones! Ryan looks good with scruff (if that isn't wierd to compliment your hubby ) Sometimes I wish JJ looked better with scruff but he just can't pull it off :) I love fall family pictures.

i just saw a cute pic on fb of a little girl who was the girl from tangled-frying pan & everything. It looked like they braided (alot) yarn to make her hair longer & it looked cute.
