No Smiles for Mommy...

After hounding my family since the day after Thanksgiving to do pictures for our Christmas card, I finally gave in and decided just to shoot the kids this year...Since Greg had to work tonight, I decided to get them ready and just take a couple in front of the tree...
I'm only adding ONE picture, and it sums up the WHOLE shoot...I got NOTHING...so I guess everyone gets regular cards this year!
ps...it's okay to laugh, i did, after they went to bed anyway...
Notice the tear coming out of the corner of his eye...and yes his face gets that red instantly when he's mad...gotta love it!

There was lots more that happened over the weekend, so I'll catch everyone up then. It was a very emotional weekend for me personally, and I'm trying to find a way to work through everything. If you get a moment, go check out Lindsey's blog. She could use all your prayers and words of encouragement right now.
More soon I promise...Maggie had a very cool day Friday. It was a day of very cool highs for us family wise, and a day of very low lows at the same time for me.
I know that everything happens for a reason, and I accept that some babies are not going to stay here with us for long, but for me to know that all a new mother wants is to meet their child, to look into their eyes, and to have that taken away at the last second...it breaks my heart.

I totally agree.

Sorry your pictures didn't go as "planned" - aren't kids buggers when they want to be (and when we don't want them to be!!!)? I have to say that I can see Greg in him in that lovely picture - ha ha - sorry Greg! :o)

Try to have a good day!
