Family pictures can be a stressful time! What to wear? Where to do it? Grumpy kids! But what I’ve learned it to just go with! It’s not worth it to tell my husband what to wear and have him hating life the whole time. I’ve decided that I want all my pictures to be REAL. Happy or sad or grumpy or goofy.. whatever it was that we were feeling that day. And during this shoot Knox was an absolute pill! He wanted his “moo moo” (blanket), he would make his whinny face almost the entire time, and he just wasn’t cooperating. Instead of getting frustrated we just went with it! And played with him! And laughed! And I’m so in love with all the pictures!! I am going to have a serious problem deciding what ones to blow up and put on my walls. Lindsey Lu Creations really outdid herself this time. She is such an amazing and fun and patient photographer. And not to mention Knox is in love with her.

With Thanksgiving creeping up on us I just wanted to take a second to say how grateful I am for my little family. (See November I told you I wouldn’t forget about you completely.) There is not a day that goes by that I don’t thank my lucky stars for my two boys. For our lives together. For being able to spend forever with them. I feel so incredibly blessed. We really have been given so much and I will never take it for granted. I am not saying that our lives are perfect, or that we’ve never felt pain.. or loss.. because we have. We have experienced plenty of heart wrenching trials. But through it all we have always been able to hold onto our love for one another. And the harder days make us more grateful for the better ones. Thanksgiving is a time to focus on the good in our lives. I hope we can all pick out the good in our lives this month and share it with others!
