One Big Happy Family!

I had a great time doing a family of 13 over Thanksgiving weekend! What better time to do a big family picture? We had the grandparents, 4 kids, 3 with spouses & 4 grand kids! They were all such great sports, especially considering our cloudless day and bright blue skies which normally would be a great thing but for pictures meant some seriously bright sunlight to try to smile naturally through! But, this is the kind of family that makes you want to have a big family yourself. So, enjoy!

This is what is wrong with our world today...

Now, I know this is not photography related but I couldn't help but share how ridiculous, and sadly true, this article is!
Now think back to the days of watching Sesame Street.... do you feel disturbed and misguided? Well, then maybe you're not paranoid enough. Click here to read more from this article from the NY Times, Sweeping the Clouds Away and maybe we, the new generation of parents can try to turn the next generation in a new, or should I say old, direction. Where are have the days gone where you don't assume that every man talking to a child is a child molester or a kid eating a cookie is going to be an obese adult! Anyway, I've said my peace. Read for yourself!

The Thomson Family...

This sweet family was lucky enough to be able to soak the last good days of fall leaves! They were out in force with the brightest yellows, oranges and reds I can remember seeing! We, here in DC, have experienced a late change in the leaves so all my poor families who were so careful to schedule their families at the predicted peak didn't have much color at all and the Thomsons thought they were going to miss it all together! So anyway, enjoy the beautiful colors!

Love this one! The leaf got stuck straight in dad's glasses!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

More Cousins!

So, as you may have now guessed we have a lot of cousins in Kansas! Here you'll see pictures of my cousin Alyssa, her husband Luke and her very adorable kids (her daugher looks just like she did as a baby)! This girl is one amazing mama! She has her hands full with a 1 & 2 year old and acts like it's nothing at all and has raised very happy, fun little kiddos! You'll see how much personality this little family has when you look at the pictures.... Erin
