Christmas Photo Shoot

It snowed here a little while ago and Kade got really excited about it and got all bundled up. He had a blast, Maggie didn't last that long, but had fun too. It's weird even now, it's snowing lightly and our grass is STILL green! Green grass in December.


This photo is funny to me, she stuffed her mouth full of food.


My mom gave me Maggie's snow suit. Does it look like its from the 80's? It is, either or both Maren and I wore it when we were young.





So we did a home photo Christmas shoot...I thought they turned out pretty good!

Silly






She loves her "babies"






This is our weird boy. We tell him to smile and he does this:




I really like Kade in this one






Maggie was having trouble holding hands

And our favorites...
Bret used a little bit of his awesome editing skills to move Kade closer to Maggie and blur the background and get rid of some shadows. He is going to make one for me that has a slight snowflake background to it.

Bret did this one for me also, I can't decide if I like it in color or this better

Thanksgiving photos...and our little secret.

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun for us. It was really nice to be with family and take a break from...here. We loved having Bret in our lives for a few days. The car ride was pretty hard-we carpooled and had 2 extra little ones, so I was very busy. Small children are demanding! It worked out though. Here are some photos of the cousins:

Tried to get one of all the kids in the car

Kissing the new baby

We got up at 3:30 am to go to black friday sales. I almost died from getting up that early, but we made off with some great Christmas gift deals... so I guess it was worth it...I guess.
We also got an ultrasound done by my brother in law while there. Yes, we are having baby #3! A few days after we got back we had the ultrasound from my clinic done and the due dates matched exactly-way to go Nathan! May 12! I am excited for another little baby, but it seems that lately the kids and I have been having a hard time with each other so I think in my head-What have I gotten myself into-how can I handle 3 small kids (when I can hardly handle 2 sometimes)?! I think it will be hard, but I know I will enjoy it too. We could have found out what we are having, but we decided to go with the other route this time. I think it will be fun.
That's all for now!
