It seems like we just barely celebrated bringing in 2012. And now it’s 2013. How did that happen? I have a sneaking suspicion 2013 is going to be a good year. I’m working hard on my “one word” motto for 2013 and Dave’s whipped us in shape with some new resolutions. I’m excited to download New Years celebration pictures but in the meantime, here are a couple photo shoots. I am kind of secretly happy that my girls and their friends actually ask for photo shoots. They tell me how they want to pose and I just snap away. Claire and her friends did not want to miss out on the fun. But the other girls could hardly help themselves from getting in the shots. We had to shoo them away:) I love the self-directed poses. …and how the personalities come out. The leaf-throwing somehow led to the idea of doing some leaf-raking service for the neighbors.And I love that even more than photo shoots. I love that Elle and her friends can actually DO their own photo shoots:They just took off and did these on their own one day. We need to get a remote so that she doesn’t have to run back and forth for the auto timer. Love these goofy girls. Happy New Year!
