Visit from Grandma

Grandma Kathy (aka "Grandma Moo Moo"-name affectionately given to her by Sam when he was a baby) has been visiting us for the past 2 weeks. She has made Sylas giggle a lot during her stay. She is planning on taking the kids to see Santa tomorrow, I wonder if he will be dressed in his traditional garb, or if he will go for the more appropriate outfit of a Hawaiian shirt and board shorts. We have had lots of fun times including today when we visited one of our favorite spots, the Lavender Farm. We attempted to take a picture for the holiday cards and gosh, professional photographers really do earn their pay. It was a circus trying to get all 3 kids look at the camera! I think next time I will try a glass of wine in one hand and a camera in the other. Here are some photos that capture the ordeal:

We will try again tomorrow!


  1. The lavender farms are gorgeous!! The pictures are so cute and I know what you mean about needing a glass of wine during the ordeal! Sylas is getting so big- hard to believe are boys are growing so fast!!

  2. That was so us today. I didn't think I'd have time to get professional pictures taken, edited, given back to us, and then get cards printed. So we tried to do our own this morning. Aside from a cheapo camera, we needed someone other than grandma 'posing' us!

  3. Soooo cute! I feel terrible that I haven't called you back. I have your number saved in my cell. I promise to call this week. PLEASE keep trying! I hope all is well. Email and facebook are my main ways of communicating these days...the phone is so hard for me...but I'm really going to try!

  4. Our babies are growing tooooo fast! I would love to visit Santa in a t-shirt. Now that is living!

  5. I like those pictures quite well! That last one makes me smile!

    Did you have better luck taking pictures with the wine?
