New Family Photos....Again

You know it's getting out of control when your oldest daughter, who loves shopping, dressing up all fancy like, and anything to do with new shoes, complains when you inform her that we are having new family photos taken.

"Awe, Mom, we just had new pictures taken." {pouty face}

This is a true statement. Five formal photo sessions in 12 months is probably more than normal...

1. There was lasts years family photo taken at the end of October.

2. Photos with my fabulous Grandma in December.

3. Photos before Ella's baptism in May.

4. Extended Family Photos because little brother and fam came into town in August.

5. This years family photo, October.

But really, can one ever take too many photos? I don't think so.

So here are a few more.....

I have to say that I was not that impressed with our new photography studio here in Lehi. She didn't take very many pictures and there were only a handful of different poses. It's sad because I was so excited when this studio went in. I don't think that we will be going back. I mean, come on! My girls are freaking cute and you can only take 2 or 3 pictures of them?! And it's not like we were late or uncooperative. We were right on time {shocker, I know} and the girls were so good and happy {double shocker}, but she only used 30 minutes of our 45 minute session. I tried to speak up but everyone seemed to think it was all hunky dory. So we left. They have a guarantee policy that you can come back for a re-shoot if you are not satisfied with your session. But who wants to get 6 people ready for another photo session? {6th one in 12 months}

No, really. Will you come over and get everyone ready....It's not that hard to blow dry 5 heads of hair perfectly!

**I promise that I am going to post all the amazingness that was Disneyland. I just took a lot of pictures {I don't have a problem clicking the shutter. I feel the more you take the more turn out. cough} Now I have to go through them and add narrative in my witty fashion. I'm getting there, promise.**

New Specks

Pooh Bear got her new glasses today. (If you can believe it she lost her other ones, which we {I} discovered 2 days before we left for Disneyland. They were in the bottom of the shoe basket, under all of the shoes. Isn't that where you keep yours?)

Her eye dr. told her she should wear them all the time now as her eye/brain connection is in overdrive trying to compensate for her farsightedness {which spell checker confirms is an actual word!}.

She looks smart. Unfortunately, these glasses haven't helped us find her missing school planner that she has to turn in each morning with a parent signature to receive proper credit for her homework.

Speaking of the car today, The Boss informed me that her eye hurt. Here is the following conversation:

the Boss: "My eye hurts. I need to go to the doctor."
Me: "Why do you need to go to the doctor? Can't I help your eye feel better when we get home?"
the Boss: "No. I need to go to the doctor so he can kiss it better."

And now you know why an MD is so expensive. It takes a long time to get those medically necessary kisses just right!
