Fall Family Pictures

So I finally talked myself into doing nice family pictures.  

Do things like this stress you out?  

They stress me out big time.  Planning what everyone is going to wear, my hair, getting there on time, looking 20 pounds thinner, my hair, you get the idea.  But we haven't done one in years and so I threw my vanity to the wind and made the appointment.

It went really well.  I am not kidding though, we were up in one of the Wasatch Mountain canyons and it was COLD!  

Dan was a great sport even though he was cracking jokes like, "We ALWAYS hold hands and walk up the sides of mountains at 6 p.m., don't we?"  

Greg and Graham did great and smiled nicely as long as the potty jokes kept coming.  When they didn't, the faker smiles came out and Greg couldn't look into a camera lens to save his life. 
The scenery/backdrop was fabulous....so maybe everyone will notice that instead of the fact that I could FEEL my hair going flat and frizzy.  Poor Lauren was just a cry baby the whole time she was so cold!  Sad!
 LuLu had on a little velvet shruggie with a fur collar....and she wouldn't strike one pose.  Of course we get home and she strips down and the posing begins as soon as she sees my camera.  What???
Me giddy with the thought of not having to do this for another 7 years.  (Ok, maybe sooner....)  But still, SO glad it's done!

I'm so excited to see them! And you look great in that shade of royal blue. It's a very Kate Middleton color that I love too!
