I am realizing just how spoiled i have gotten when it comes to professional style pics of my kids. These are some we took at the mall, and i think they are cute, but just don't capture the kids the way my friend pk has over the years. What I really did like was the experience of getting them dressed in cooridating outfits, heading to the mall with my mom and pat's mom and spending a day together eating lunch, etc. it brought back memories of brady and me with my mom and grandma. we would go every 6 months or so. so for the sake of tradition, it was really fun and i am glad i did it. on the other hand, it may be time to schedule a playdate with pk!

The girls' school hosted a holiday party on sat. with lots of art projects, cookie decorating, ornament making, and a visit from santa. both of them did great with santa and while lucy didn't smile, she did communicate her desire for him to bring her a new baby doll. she really grasped the whole thing much better then i would have expected. i had to scan the pictures so they are a bit grainy, but you get the idea. no tears- so that was good.
