Faith Hope Love Family

I got my Christmas cards in the mail this week!  Yeah to checking off the list.  I had the best little helper you have ever seen helping me get them ready last week.

I want to share now our pictures since they are out now.  After my original plan for photography fell through I literally did google searches on line for mini sessions near us.  I found a photographer who was doing them that weekend near The Woodlands and signed up immediately (since the price was so great too!) I was nervous of course because #1 - never used this photographer.  #2 - who knows how the boys will choose to behave.  We brought along our secret weapons Big Poppa, Gamma, and an arsenal of funny props and noise makers.  Even with all of that after 15 minutes or so they were over it.  I always leave wondering if we got anything that worked.  Well, we did!  More than that, they turned out gorgeous.  The field we were in was heavenly and the lighting just made it glow.  Happy happy happy.  Especially that I got the treasured all 4 of us looking at the camera shot. 

They thought it was hilarious to knock over the windows 

This may be one of my favorite Eli shots ever.  That grin and joy for life so
captures his personality.  
Big Poppa was playing with a huge balloon

love this face.. and that golden light on his sweet hair

almost over it

the set up and all the people working to get these shots

And I love our card!  I love that Shutterfly gives you the code to share it too.  Merry Christmas for the Riley Family!!  May the God of hope fill you with all peace and joy..  Romans 15:13
