More Photos

This post contains A LOT of photos. Don't feel like you have to look at all of them. 

This next series of photos were taken 10 days after Clara was born. Evan picked out the outfits for all the kids. He did a great job. We were trying to get some photos done for the Christmas cards. We got the photos done, but it's now January and I still haven't got the cards sent out. Oh well...

My girls! They are so cute in their matching dresses. Iris is such a proud big sister.

The three of them. Makes my heart happy!

I always love it when they will stand together for a photo.

My big girl. When did she get that big? Quite the young lady.

Good hugs!!

"Love you Iris!" "Love you Bubba!"

What a handsome young lad. Especially love the awesome bruise on his cheek. Such a boy!

Sisters are the BEST!!

I love kissing this face!

So peaceful.

Another Daddy's Girl! He loves his little princesses. And they love him.

How can you not love a daddy this cool? These people are my world.

He was so cute looking out the window that I had to snap a picture.

The Zinser family. (Thank you to Sheila for snapping this photo. She did a great job for having us just pull her out of her flower shop and give her a camera.)

The girls.

My precious Clara.

Such a special addition to our family.

I love tiny little baby feet.

We had to get a photo in the adorable little dress we got for her in Hawaii. I love it.

We did manage to get a couple of the kids with the awesome sleigh. Very festive.

Well if you managed to get all the way through those photos, thank you and I hope you enjoy looking at my family as much as I do. I'll try not to put that many in one post next time.

Pre-Clara Photo Shoot

Right before Clara was born we had our friend Alicia take some pictures for us. The kids do so much better when it is someone else taking the pictures. I just wanted to post some of my favorites.

This is my favorite of all of us. Looking at it now, my belly looks huge! I didn't feel that big at the time. 

I love love love this one! It totally shows their personalities. Iris kissing and loving on the baby and Donevan driving his cars over my belly. So perfect.

Iris just could not wait until her little sister got here! She loves having a little sister. She is going to be such a good example to Clara.

Donevan is a good big brother. I can tell he's gonna look out for her. Even though he drove cars on her before she was born.

These are some good ones of the two of them actually getting along and proving that they do love each other, even though you couldn't prove it by the way they act sometimes.

She loves having her picture taken. So sassy!

He just wanted to play with his cars. Whatever makes him smile!

And now for some belly shots. I know a lot of people don't like to have their picture taken while pregnant, but I like to look back and remember how I felt and what I looked like. I feel really bad that we didn't do something like this when I was pregnant with Iris. If only we had all the photo equipment then.

 I made sure I got some with Evan. When we did maternity pictures when I was pregnant with Donevan I didn't get any with Evan because he was taking the photos. We were going to have someone else take some for us, but never got around to it. So I insisted on having someone else do all the photos this time. And I'm glad I did.

So sweet!

Well I hope you enjoyed looking at my belly. I do somewhat miss having all the movement inside. I don't miss not being able to bend over or sleep. And I don't miss the heartburn or numb and swollen hands and feet. Really though, I like being pregnant. I am lucky enough to have had fairly easy pregnancies. I don't experience all the sickness that most women do and my deliveries are quick. So all in all, being pregnant is an enjoyable experience for me. Don't hate me.
