Family Pictures!

So my sister Becca is a pretty talented photographer. I decided to take advantage of that while she's visiting for Christmas break from college.

Saturday we went up to the mountains to try and get some family pictures. Rebecca's camera's batteries had died (boo!) so she took some pictures with my new digital camera. Seems like it takes pretty good pictures so far! We didn't get any whole family shots since of course not everyone felt like participating. (annika) But Becca got some good shots of us in pairs and individuals though. Here are some of my favorites. We took some group shots today- but those were with becca's camera- which is film. So we'll not get those for a few days with christmas and all.

I think Megan may win the award for most photogenic child.
I had a hard time with any pictures of steve and I in color. Mostly because the redness of his beard totally washes out all color in my face.
Annika wasn't happy to be taking pictures. She wanted to be held the entire time we were up there. So mostly sad or serious shots of her. Also- her face is pretty scratched up since Megan's newest evil trick is scratching when she gets mad- and Annika is the most abused. If you've got ideas for stopping that I'd appreciate it.

love this one of Steve and Cori

Notice all the missing teeth? Guess who gets to visit the orthodontist after the beginning of the year??
cute baby.

Love this one. Too bad Annika didn't want to participate. Ashley is smiling semi normally- yay!
About the only shot of annika smiling.
Love this profile.
Notice the tear?
Love this one too.
See all the freckles?? Guess where she gets those? (Steve). Cute huh? I can't believe she's almost 8!

Merry Christmas from us!

Your girls are so cute, even with tears ;)

You look great too. Love the pic of you and Steve together though I think my fave pic of you is the one with Annaka smiling at each other.

I can't believe how big the girls are getting. Corrine is getting so much hair. I wish Eden had more hair. :)

It's tough to get everyone in the "right" mood for family pictures.
They are still very cute!
