Family Pictures 2010

Sara was gracious enough to take our family pictures for us this Thanksgiving. I have tried and tried, but you just can't do it the same with a tripod and the remote. Seriously, who is Max supposed to smile at?
Jared makes me crazy. I simply cannot get a good picture of us together. In this one, he's making a bug eye face at me. Yup. Can't be serious for the camera!

This is so Jared... what a fun dad!
Thanks, Sara! I owe you one!

Pearl got baptized on Saturday. She's so big, and she was so happy! She really understood that she was choosing the right by being baptized:)

Maryann got these pictures of all of us for me. It was a very good day!

Horses at Apple Hill

Every year we go to High Hill (apple hill) to ride the horses. We've gone and ridden the horses in the same spot since Pearl was one year old. Luckilly, Auntie Maryann lugged her big camera to apple hill that day, or we'd have no pictures ( I haven't been in the picture taking mood lately. I know. Weird.)
Sam loves the horses! And, he knows how to cheese it up for the camera pretty good by now:)
Looking at these pictures makes me realize how big Pearl is. She looks like she fits on those ponies now!
Max... Watching... waiting...
Ahh, this looks interesting!

This is great, Dad! I love it!
This was right before Jared left on one of his many business trips this year... so glad he could come with us!

Fall Feast

Sam goes to a private preschool that places emphasis on the arts. They have singing teachers (he's always singing the songs they learn) and they have a little theatre in their class where they perform for the parents. This was the Fall Feast performance. He took it fairly seriously, and sang his loudest. My favorite part was when he got to be a turkey that popped out of the curtians (it was almost impossible for him to stay hidden, he kept having to check things out...) and sang "stayin' alive" with some very groovy hip action. It was quite hilarious, and he looked like he was having a good time:)
These are the turkey cookies we brought. I am not that creative, I think I've done these cookies with the kids every year since Pearl was 2. They're cute and easy and I like eating the leftover nutter butters:)

Happy Thanksgiving!
