Two weeks ago, I began my annual quest for "tree pictures" for the kids. I took these shots on a Sunday after church, and liked them, but I didn't love them.
Colin, just a few days from being nine years old
Ethan, five and a half
Cameron, just turned seven years old
Lola, two and a half
Did I say I really liked them? I did! I just did not love love love them like I was hoping to.
Fast forward to yesterday. Another Sunday, right after church; and a gorgeous sun-filled day! AHH!! The beauty of fall had smacked our wonderful tree, and now, now I got my pictures!
Colin (who can stop growing any day now....)
Cameron (with the official toothless grin)
Ethan (oh....melt my heart)
and Lolee girl. My darling daughter....
.....(laughing at her Daddy) who, as much as I tried....
.....I could not pick a favorite of these three shots!
(And, it's a good thing I didn't wait one more day....because
after a wind/rainstorm this morning, this is what my tree looks like today!)
