So this last weekend brought my birthday and a little early birthday gathering for the kids to say good-bye to some of our friends. Owen turns 6 just a few weeks after we get to Atlanta, then Sadie turns 3 two weeks after that. So we gathered some of our friends to squeeze their necks one last time before heading east. Oh...it's so hard for me to say good-bye!Our precious friend Lesley Proctor took these pictures of our family FOR MY BIRTHDAY!! What a HUGE gift this is to a mama, huh? We had so much fun and she was kind enough to meet us early in the morning to avoid the HEAT of Oklahoma.
I love how they turned out and how you can see so much of the kids' personalities in them. They would such good sports taking these. The boys certainly DO NOT like having their pictures taken, so it made all the difference in the world to adore the one behind the camera (who just happened to bring her two boys with her to get smiles!).
