A bit about my little bits

Last weekend I had a near death experience...taking our annual family pictures. By the time we finished I felt like I had run a marathon. My dad called while we were getting the kids ready for the photoshoot and heard Nate yelling in the background "I HATE family pictures!!!!!" The kids all survived the outfits I picked out for them and thankfully we have some treasures to hang on our wall.

The one with Coop wanting to be,"someone who cleans up Egypt" cracks me up.

Cooper and Chloe just look so big -- I hardly recognize them. You must be quite the cook, because it sounds like you make some yummy dinners!

Love it, what a feat accomplished! You always amaze me Sara!

I'm dying laughing at Coop's comment. Is this because of Gma Gina's postcard from Egypt? It's so funny. And Chloe wants to have babies? Alex had a theme to his fav foods- chicken.

Well yes Amy, I can attest that Sara is a very good cook. We're lucky that she feeds us regularly as well.

Good idea documenting the bits about each kid. See you in a few hours!

One of the funniest posts I have ever read. Right up their with the one about Cooper's peanuts. The descriptions sound so much like each of them. I can't believe how long and full Chloe's hair is! And I love love love how you did Alysee's. Each of them look just so great and grown up. I am very impressed.
