Hello all!  By now everyone knows that I suck at blogging.  And I probably won't get any better anytime soon.  But I thought I'd update this little blog anyways.  And hopefully there can be hope for me, but again, it's probably a lot cause.  So you will just have to enjoy what I post whenever I can get myself to do it.  I'd like to say I'd go back and do a catch up on all that's been going on in our lives the last, oh, 9 months, but that will also probably not happen:)  Just being realistic folks! 
I've really started to do a lot of photography on the side.  I love it, and I love that I can make it work with my schedule and taking care of my kiddos.  I've always loved pictures.  I just love capturing a moment and having it around to look back at.  Because time flies so fast.  And lord knows after 4 kids my brain is often mush.  I tell myself that there is time to remember things in 18 years when the kids are out of the house, but then I will just be old so it's probably all downhill from here:)  Anyways, I've been doing a lot of photography on the side for others.  But my all time favorite subjects to photograph are my own children.  Because gosh they are so stinking cute.  And ornery.  And obnoxious.  And difficult.....I digress.....they are still my favorite because of, and in spite of all of the above.  That also makes them some of the hardest little people to photograph because they are used to me shoving a camera in their face, lol.  Good thing I'm a fan of candid photography.  
A couple of weeks ago Brian had a Saturday full of soccer.  So I decided it was the best time to take all the kiddos out to myself to capture some new pictures of them.  Seriously...I make my life very challenging sometimes.  But I love the results anyways.  And these are some of my new favorite pictures of some of my favorite people.  Don't be surprised if you find them all over the house.  For now, enjoy some pictures of our adorable children!!

 This it.  Mostly because Parker was being a pain in the butt.  I could get everyone else (even his 15 month old brother) to mostly cooperate and stay in one place for 15 seconds, except for Parker.  He beats to the tune of his own drum:)  So I got mad at him and plopped him down.  To which he started the tears coming.  So funny.  Just keeping it real.  It is so.very.hard to photograph these kids!

I hope to be back to blogging again very soon.  But if it's another 6-9 months, I hope this will keep you happy in the meantime:)
