Photo session proofs

Here is the link to the proofs from our photo session.... I was mainly looking for a nice protrait of Gillian whose time in front of the lens has been limited, partly her own doing, and needs some representation on the walls of our home. I was also hoping to squeeze a Christmas card out of the deal... While there are some great shots, I don't know that I really got either of these things accomplished. Maybe I will feel differently when I see them in her office.

Gillian's Birthday

My Blue-eyed baby is turning 3!!! Despite the fact she can't decide if she wants to turn 3 and give up her softy (and hopefully sucking her fingers that she only does with the softy in the other hand) or if she wants to stay 2.  She had a great birthday party.  We made pizza, one of her faves, and pink cupcakes (Magnolia's recipe of course) and then we all went for a swim!!!  Very fun day.  

Nick's Baptism

Nick was baptized three weeks ago.  It was very special.   The missionaries baptized and confirmed him.  By missionaries I mean all the missionaries in a 500 mile radius.  There must have been more than a dozen hands on his head during the confirmation!!! Also making the day even more special was the participation by his cousins, the Colemans ... the ones that weren't galavanting around Europe.  Jessica recited an article of faith, Clay gave a take about baptism and Maddie performed a song she wrote with her guitar, twice.  The Missionaries demanded an encore!!! It was also great to have so many other loved ones present, the Morris's, Taylor and Sabra and Grandma and Lee.  Thanks everyone!!!

Family photos

Friday we had a photographer come and take pictures of us.  She blogged a portion of the photo session on her website.  Check them out!!! I am so excited to see the rest.
