Just because we almost never get a picture taken any more with both of us in it... let alone JUST the both of us in it...

PS DSC_0610PS DSC_0617DSC_0621We 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.)

S.A.S. said...

Love the yellow - love your hair - love the way you look so in love with your husband - love the arms around the neck - love you smiling big. You look beautiful.

Oh Lillie you guys look like you're so in love. I think the last picture Jerry and I took having fun like that was on our honeymoon. Sad I know. Five kids four and under will do that to you. Cute jeans by the way.

Becky Freestone said...

Brandon or Michelle said...

oh lillie...how are we all NOT supposed to be jealous of your long, lean torso and your super hot style? super hottie, I say. I love that both your mom and ross were game for a photo shoot too...although the realness of your girls NOT being ready was refreshing. when you get our Christmas card, laugh. it's a "THIS IS THE ONLY TIMED SHOT WE ARE GOING TO DO SO EVERYBODY BETTER LIKE IT AND NOT COMPLAIN!" kind of picture. :) sigh. not perfect, but all there, right? I'm sure you'll find a shot of the four of you that will be great for the cards..no worries.

are you in the mood for a call from me yet? has it been long enough?

Not very good pictures...

Alysa said...

These are absolutely adorable. I think it is fun to have the couple pictures. Michelle took ours along with our family pictures and they are quite fun. You guys are cute.

Sarie said...

Get the crap out of town. Get right out of town with looking so cute. I gotta start working out...

Missy said...

I just look at Kevin and Whitney's blog and now this one and I'm wondering...do I have the prettiest friends EVER? I totally do.

Rebecca Smylie said...

More than ever I am desperate for someone to ask me if we're sisters. Lillie--there's not a soul in the world who wouldn't envy you in these shots. I LOVED them.

Portia said...

I love that you have pics of just the two of you! The last time I think we did something like that was for around our wedding. Sad... need to follow your example, you guys are so cute!

Kirby said...

Excuse me, could you be any more beautiful. Seriously, two kids...I'm not buying it! I love these pictures. They belong in a catalog! :)

maines said...

You both look great! Gorgeous pictures...

Sharon/mom said...

those are sooooo cute, you two could be models!!! It looked like one of those commercials for clothes like old Navy!! By the way thank you more than you will ever know for making Lizzie a blog and as a result family memories none of us would have ever known! We are closer as a family than we ever could have been at this time in our lives. You get credit for that!!!! Also while I'm at it, thank you for being such a good friend to Lizzie, I don't know what she would do w/o you!
love you!!!

ok, I know there are already a ton of comments, but I just wanted you to know that I LOVE these pictures. I think it is so important to have pics of just the two of you, because that is where it all started. Justin and I took some of just us in June! They are going up in my room as soon as I have the money to buy frames. Good job!
