Family Portraits

You may remember that my mom wanted family portraits done for her birthday this year....
I finally have them to share with you!!!

I just adore a black and white photo....
They look so pretty!

This is our first family portrait together
I just love this one!

My parents were born to be grandparents!
They are truly wonderful with Caleb and Zoey....

My brother and his beautiful family



I laugh every time I see all of us in a picture. My mom swore for years that she would never be a grandmother. She saw friends and family all around her getting the chance. Brian and I were wild for a while and it probably seemed like we'd never settle down. I can remember watching her get all teary eyed one day standing around her dining room table telling me how another one of her siblings had become a grandparent. Secretly I just smiled. Little did she know that a having a child was in my heart.
When I told my parents that we were expecting, my mother shouted to the world (really just the Tellico campground) that she was "Gonna Be A Granny!!!!" She glowed prettier than any pregnant woman around!
Five weeks later, Brian came to me about Tara's positive pregnancy test. We had all suspected for a week then and it was confirmed! My parents were getting two grandbabies!

I had Caleb in November and Zoey was born five weeks later.
My parents had back to back grandkids in the same year.
Talk about a shock to their system!

It has been such an awesome journey for my family and I love how we have transformed over the years.
