Believe it or not, Jamye got her wedding photos back already!  I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak.
This photo makes my heart smile, but the next photo, well...
for some reason, it brings tears {of joy!} to my eyes {literally}.
All we are saaaayiinnng, is give PEAS a chance!  Peas turned out to be the babies' REAL first food, and they loved it!

"I wanna drive, mama, I wanna drive."

Christmas Tree Shopping

The day after Thanksgiving our nanny, Miss Maggie, came over to take care of the twin-littles so that daddy, Reid and I could go shopping for our Christmas tree.  

From the time we got out of the car until the time we got home with our new tree, Reid kept saying "Woooooow!"

I've always loved Christmas, but who knew it would take on a whole new level of FUN with kids involved?!?!

"It's crooked, daddy!" ;)

To accommodate all the little rascals who were celebrating their very 1st Thanksgiving, Grandpa Kim and Grandma JoJo agreed to come to Dallas for the holiday. 

Jeff and I were so excited to host our very first Thanksgiving on Larchcrest!

Keeping all the babes in their routines made for a fun-filled, {mostly} peaceful celebration with the fam.  They certainly won't always be that peaceful, but we'll take it whenever we can get it.  Check back again when all FOUR of the boys are MOBILE. Oh and brace yourself!

Sweet baby Barrett

Ready (and oh so grateful) for our Thanksgiving feast!

Although Jo Ann is fully capable of slaving all day over a brilliant holiday meal, she's just as smart as she is talented in the kitchen.  

Now that there are grandchildren to attend to, she's made it a tradition to order La Madeleine for dinner.  It's been fabulous every time and definitely a lot less maintenance.

Well, I guess there was some homemade food being eaten in our house.

Reid is going to be the best team captain ever!

Look what Jack found!

Not too shabby considering there are FOUR littles under three in this photo!
Can anyone see why this one wouldn't be suitable for a Christmas card???


Faces by Ian Cole

Ian Cole is one of my favorite local photographers.  

He doesn't have a fancy website.  

He doesn't have photo shoots at all the ritzy hotspots around Dallas. 

He doesn't charge the obligatory "sitting fee."

He doesn't have a minimum purchase requirement.

He doesn't require that you have a personal stylist to coordinate all your family colors.

On the contrary.

He's Patient.  Easy-going.  Reasonable.  Talented.  Black & White.

And he does something that this mama of three under three appreciates immensely.  

He keeps it simple, and he captures these moments in time that I will forever cherish.
