So my mom wanted a picture of Lily sitting still--a much easier feat. And I owe my sister Evie a picture of Lily in in this coat she scored. We LOVE the coat, Ev. Lily wears it to church almost every week.
So you may have heard about our crazy wether this last weekend. It had been so warm and sunny and out of nowhere we got like 4 inches of snow.
Dave took some great pictures. It really was one of the prettiest snow falls I've ever seen. I'm glad Dave captured it because it killed all the lovely purple magnolias. Argh!
But the day itself (before the dead magnolias) was pretty fun. Dave took Lily out exploring that night (that's right NIGHT.) I stayed snug in the house cause the boys were asleep and because I'm a big baby about the cold.
Lily came back with her cheeks glowing. She was was ecstatic about their little romp. They found a "forest" by the creek and had a snow ball fight. I imagine she'll be day dreaming about that for a while.
I'm just gonna say it. My boys are so cute!!!!! We went to Trenna's for a little photo shoot of the boys in Michael Miller knit P. J.'s. I told Dave we'd be back in an hour or so. What was I thinking?!? Did I confuse my boys with someone else's kids? They were animals. Seriously. Trenna may say otherwise because she is nice like that, but they were ANIMALS. My favorite part was when we had the genius idea of photographing them together. They were literally wrestling on the ground, ripping the backdrop, throwing trains.
I need to get some of the outtakes to post. Luke, who smiles 99% of the time (ask the old ladies at the grocery store.) just couldn't give us a natural smile. OK, we caught one. But the rest of the time it was crazy pirate face, scared face, or fake smile face.
Amazingly, Trenna was able to capture a few sweet moments. And so it was all worth it. Just like mothering in general, don't you think?
