Such is life!

I always thought I'd be that parent who takes her kids to JC P.enny or Pi.cture People every month to have photos taken. I can honestly say that that has not happened yet. Not even once.

We once had photos taken by the granddaughter of a family friend, and she came to US. Those are in fact, the only photos we ever had taken of them.
So let me just tell you all how extremely excited I was one day while on Facebook. I had "LIKED" the page for Shannon K Photography, and ended up winning a free photo session with the family!!

We are so excited!
Which is why I nearly died when Ethan fell off the Toys-R-us bench and gave himself an amazing bruise over his left eye. I believe my words were, "ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?? We're having photos taken in just over a week!!" Luckily, his bruise has started to fade finally. I think he'll be photo-ready on Sunday!

But just when Ethan's bruise started going away, Colton took a dive/slide in his trampoline and got "trampoline burn" on his little nose. Luckily, the scab came off just in the nick of time! Whew we're all back to normal and ready for our photos!


Oops. Not so fast.
This evening, this little beauty tried to climb up the back of her Cinderella lawn chair and did a major face plant in the hard, crunchy, brown grass. Uh oh...

In her words, "Ouch."
Heck yeah that's OUCH!! Poor girl!
Oh well! Cuts, scrapes, bumps and bruises. Look out Shannon! We can't wait to have our photos taken!

dude! that looks like it hurt :*( poor little girl! if it makes you feel better, every time we go to get henry's pictures taken , he gets hurt. we usually end up postponing his pics until he heals but this last time, we just went. pictures complete with a little fat bloody top lip :) those pics are some of my favorites because it so captures him at this point in his life. these pics of your little trio will be awesome :)

Did you happen to win this through the preemie contest? I won a session too on FB. I think we are going to wait till it is a little warmer here in Chicago!

Ouch is right! That looks like it really hurts.You know they can edit those booboos and you wouldn't even be able to tell. We did that when Kara had a big scratch on her nose. I think Heather did the same once when Preston's face was scraped pretty badly.

Having family pictures taken is sooo much fun to prep for! I love all the shopping, finding outfits that match, but aren't exact... We have had a few bumps and bruises - you will be amazed at what can be photoshop-ed out!
Have fun!!! Can't wait to see them!
