And the winner is...

None of the options I posted...but one very similar. The stupid computer will only let me do a few at a time, so I'm going to do a few posts with the other photos we ordered. Too cute

Vote for your favorite!!!

Choice 1
Choice 2

So Sarah took our family photos a month or so ago and we have the pictures. I want to post a few so you can tell me which one you think I should order for our family photo.
The only story I can think of is Andrew often has to tell me a "recipe." He wants me to get real close to him so he can whisper it to me. He is trying to say secret, but for whatever reason he thinks it's a recipe. It's pretty sweet. He's so sweet. He likes to pray to God and thank Him for his baby sister. How sweet is that? Seriously. We are having a great time with these two.
Love it. Love it. Love it. (most the time!)

Andrew voted!

The stickers on him say "I voted". He put them on himself with no direction from either mom or dad...too funny!

Trick or Treat

This is the best shot I could get of the two of them. Happy Halloween!
Lolo the teddy bear and Kennedy the lady bug sharing a chair. It's really difficult to get a 7 month old and a 3 month old to look at you at the same time and do some sort of smile.

Cookie Monster and Cowboy Carter having some Halloween fun!
