The weather was so nice and beautiful for so long that I decided to take Christmas pictures earlier this year. In late October we went out to the land on a Sunday evening before church. I figured the kids would already be dressed for church, and even if the pictures didn’t work out, we had lots of time to try again before Christmas. The only hiccup was that Sheridan fell asleep about four minutes before we got there. Sawyer was ready and willing to take his pictures so that he could move on to exploring and throwing stuff in the new pond. Sheridan was quite groggy and not too thrilled but eventually came around. She even livened up enough to get dirty before time to leave. I can’t believe how fast they have grown and how cute and sweet they are. It is so heart-warming and precious to watch them play and interact!
