We had big plans two weekends ago, when we were in San Diego for Mel's shower, to have my mom take some family pictures of us. We had the beach, we had fallen leaves, we had lots of scenes that weren't desert... for sure we'd take advantage. But then.... you know.... everything-slash-nothing got in the way and it seemed IMPOSSIBLE to get the girls dressed and cute, ourselves dressed and cute, while the lighting was right, and everyone was awake from their Sunday naps. Sigh. We failed.
BUT--- so that I wouldn't come back home with absolutely nothing, after getting so pumped... we caught like the last 6 minutes of sunlight and had my mom snap a few of Ross and I in front of their house while the kids slept. I don't know what they're for... since I was really hoping for an actual family picture on our Christmas card this year.... so here they are--- they've served some purpose.
(A couple of answers to comment questions: Who took those ones of Mila and I a couple of posts ago? --- it was my dear hubbie. We got to Mel's shower just a few minutes early and liked the surroundings... I had washed and dried my jeans before we drove down, didn't wear them in the car, and put them on right before I got out of the car so... that explains the jeans :) They're not always so tight (no Rachelle they weren't skinny jeans, same pair I ALWAYS wear.. just extra tight.)
