Family pictures

This year we decided to forego our traditional Fall family pictures since we were planning on doing maternity pictures in January. We decided instead to do an entire family photoshoot with the arrival of my niece and all, we wanted to update our 4 generations pictures.

I was bummed that my brother J was out of town and wouldn't be able to make it but that's ok since we plan on doing this again next Summer when our new baby is here. We went with the same color scheme and we ended up with some pretty good pictures.

We started by taking a family picture hoping that the boys would cooperate and we would get some good ones
4 generations and growing, I can't wait to add my newest baby to this picture next Summer
4 generations, how amazing right

We also got a few family pictures since we were here
My boys looking adorable
 My brother and his beautiful family, I really love this picture. My niece is the cutest, seriously
We attempted sibling pictures and Jbird was not having it
My other favorite picture, my mom and her granddaughter

I wish my brother J was here, this would have been the perfect picture of my mom with all her kids and grandkids. Good thing we are having  another photoshoot when my brother is back
One of my most favorite picture of the shoot is this pic of my brother and his daughter
Our family pictures were a great success. I am so looking forward to taking a whole family shot again next Summer. We might make this a yearly event while our family is growing, it would be so fun to see our family growing over the years.

Since the boys were dressed up and all, we went to the mall after the photoshoot to see Santa. Tman had been excited for days about it. He absolutely loved meeting Santa, he told him he wanted some trains for Christmas. Jbird on the other hand wanted nothing to do with good old St Nicholas.

Check out this gem, my boys with Santa, amazing
Yeah, we had a crazy full weekend but oh so worth it to capture all these awesome memories.

We are off to Houston tomorrow, woop woop. I am so excited for our trip because we not only get to meet family and friends but I also get to meet one of my favorite blogger in real life for the first time. Amy of Making Mrs Mauritz ( is going to be there and we are going to hang out with her and her adorable Abby. I am so excited I can hardly wait.
