Family Picutres

This past week, my talented sister-in-law, Jane, took our family pictures. However, Mr. Daniel was not a happy camper and did not cooperate at all. (This is what happens when he stays up until 11p the night before because of your husband's work Christmas party and still wakes up at 7:15a...needless to say, when when finished the shoot, Daniel fell asleep on the way home and ended up taking a 4 hour nap!!) Even though he was pouting the whole time, some of my favorite picture are the ones where Daniel is fussing. It doesn't bother me that we didn't get a great family portrait because these pictures tell the story of how the day really was...fussiness and all.

This is my favorite picture!

I will post more soon, but Blogger is being stupid. I will try again in the morning. Pictures

These are from Celebration In the Oaks in New Orleans. We went with Gigi and Poppy. The whole ride there we had been telling Daniel about the choo choo train that he was going to ride....he is obsessed with trains, so he was very excited. He kept saying, "Ride choo choo train....we go ride choo choo train." Well, we get there, and due to the ridiculous amount of rain we have had, the train wasn't running. My heart sank, and I wondered what I would tell Daniel...I dreaded having to tell him. I was able to stall with a few rides on the carousel. Still wondering how to tell him, we walked past the little ladybug roller coaster, and I got an idea. But, as I was reading the sign, I saw he was too short, and my hopes were dashed. I was telling Daniel we couldn't ride because he was too short, and the an running the ride said he could go as long as a parent went with him. Hallelujah!!!!! We headed for our "train" ride, and Daniel had a blast! Thank goodness for roller coasters!

This is my Obi-Wan-Ke-Daniel.
