So many decisions...

Saturday was meant to be the perfect day for a photo shoot, and thanks to my incredibly talented big sis, Michelle, it turned out to be just that.  She loaded up her camera, new lenses and her photography prowess and headed north to capture our little family in our fall finest.

Seriously, Michelle, you rock!

We got pictures of each kid, from the oldest...


to the youngest...


to the beauty in between...


Fifteen years together, and we can still manage some smiles :)





My family means everything to me, and I am going to love hanging these pictures up around our home so I can see the love and smiles glowing back at me every day.








After two hours of posing and smiling and laying in leaves and throwing leaves in the air, Gabe (and the rest of the kids) were happy to be done.  And the grown-ups couldn't wait to get to the nearest computer to admire Michelle's work!


Also, a big thanks to my friend, Chelle, who let us "borrow" her family's old schoolhouse for the photo shoot.  We couldn't have asked for a better location!

Now, the decision as to what-pictures-to-hang-where comes next...help!

So fun!!!! I love your new layout too here - with your header picture! That's the one I'd frame... or the one where you're walking away. (that'd be beautiful in a sepia or black/white)

I also love the one of you & Joe where you're standing in front of the fence.

I cant get over how amazingly gorgeous your girl is getting... more beautiful with every year that passes! Tell Joe to get his gun ready! :) haha!

Yay for photo shoots and new header photos! I love, love, love the one of you guys throwing the leaves in the air. And the one of the five of you leaning on the fence is gorgeous, too. But, really, you can't go wrong with any of them!

I absolutely adore these pictures. Your sister did an amazing job. Now, I'm off to see if I can find someone with a camera and who owes me a favor, cause I got the bug to have me some family pics.
