I couldn't resist

I just had to show you guys the amazing work that our friend, Shannon, did with our family pics.
We were just hoping for one decent pic we could slap on our Christmas cards.
She's left us in an incredible dilemma. What to do with all these great pics!
Tough problem to have, right?
You might even wonder why I posted so many.

You actually got lucky! There were 192 to pick from
I especially loved the ones of the kids by themselves. We were about to go to one of the shops at the mall and I'm SO glad Shannon stopped me.

It's going to be SO FUN to have these more "real" shots of the kids as they grow up.
I'm sad I forgot to tell her to crop ME outta this one because I want to use this one as Quinn's portrait.
The look on his face is PRICELESS.
She took several ones of us walking down the sidewalk in front of our house. I love all of them (except of the ones of us walking away... no 37 year old wants a pic of her rear) but they are the sweetest shots. And our neighborhood is so photogenic, even if you have to crop the SWAT team out of the pic.

So anyhow, a big shout out to Shannon. If you're in our area, I'd highly recommend you looking her up. And a shout out to YOU too for humoring me. If Simon Cowell were here he'd probably call me "self indulgent," which reminds me.. the countdown to American Idol is ON! What a glorious time of year. Even if it is a bit pitchy.
