After yesterday's Debbie Downer of a post, I thought I would share a few of the pics my awesome cousin (a local photog) took of us some weeks back for our annual family photo shoot. I really am in love with these pics, because they completely captured each one of the kids' personalities. P.S. - this is a photo-heavy post. Deal.

My goofie Gavin. Because who DOESN'T do the splits during family photo time?

Guh. I love these boys. Little heartbreakers.

My Scarley girl - always a little shy and reserved.

As Amy pointed out, Scarlett looks like she is in the midst of saying "OHHHHH SNAP." True dat.

Possibly my favorite of all the photos taken, because I can hear Simon belly laughing when I look at this picture.

Dancing under a bridge. Not to be confused with Dancing With Myself.

Her heart-shaped Mona Lisa smile kills me dead here.

One last thing - to everyone who commented yesterday, thank you. Your words seriously lifted me up and made me feel like I'm not such a freak. The logical part of my brain knows I'm not alone in how I was feeling, but the emotional part was too, well, emotional to be logical. You all truly helped me through a bad patch, and I can't express enough how to thank you.

Awww! you have a beautiful family - and I see you got your daughter into that tulle skirt- whether she was excited about it, we shouldn't worry about! This is such a great post especially after your sick post. I will be the first to give you a big Been There! I only have one child and I get those days sometimes! Hang in there- and look at these pictures if you feel down. Hugs!
