Pictures, Pictures, Pictures!!!

Today I took pictures of the kids for Christmas cards and also for school pictures. (cause I never got around to doing those) We started out with a little sun, but it very quickly turned nasty on us. Since I had started, I refused to let some dark clouds and a little rain stop us. It takes a lot of work to get these kids to cooperate, so once we were on a roll, I went until we were done. The kids were troopers and I'm very proud of them!

I have been fighting with Blogger all evening, trying to get the pictures to line up and be evenly space etc., but I'll be darned if they will go where I want them to. So...I apologize for the slightly haphazard way they are posted. Luckily the kids are all so cute that I'm sure nobody will notice. ;-)

The Nelson kids 2012!
I will have to do a side by side comparison of last years and this years picture.
Joseph- 12 years old

How did my child get so old??
So proud of the young man he is becoming.

Spencer- 10 years old

It started to rain and got rain on Spencer's glasses...he was a trooper!
Of course Spencer had to wear a tie.

Connor- 8 years old

Connor requested this hair style...I usually leave some on the forehead,
but, this is more like Daddy's

I love the tree stump in our front yard!
I told her to smile pretty, so she growled at me! haha!
Elizabeth- 3 years old

Here she said, "I show my teef."
She's learning how to pose!
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this picture! She's such a ham!

One other thing...I wanted to throw these in. I sewed these little bags for my brother's family. We have their names. Each bag is filled with toys and candy and goodies. I made my kids each these little bags and they love using them to hold Lego's and Elizabeth puts her lipsticks in hers. Something different and fun.

They are sooo cute! You did a really good job. I love all four holding hands in front of the fence. It's perfect!

Thanks Rachael! I think you saw it before I had gotten all the captioning on and you still liked it. :-)
