We're still alive

I know I've dropped of the face of the earth for a month but I'm back. I'll try to update for the next few days. We had a trip to Mexico that has got quite a story. That'll be the next blog. =)

For Christmas, Nana(Jeff's mom) got all the grandkids darling matching outfits so off to the photographers we went. We went to this new store in the Riverwoods called Portrait Innovations. It's a lot like Kiddie Kandids. You get your pictures same day and they're REALLY kid friendly. I think the pictures turned out even better than the ones I got a month ago.

We went in thinking we were just getting a big group picture but they took so many other cute pictures that of course we had to get them. Here's just a sample of some of the pictures. All the grandkids, Hallie - 5, Ryan - 4, Jake - 3, Kevin - 2, Mason - 1, Brenna - 5 months. Notice all the smiles in the group picture - oh wait. =)



Mom, click on the "view all images" button on the bottom right to see larger images.I love the picture of Kevin all serious. He was not happy that we were back again for pictures and kept giving the ladies there the stare and walking away. But since their cameras are hand-held they just followed him and got that shot.
