Pictures and a message from my soap box.

I’m finally ready to show you the rest of our family photos which were taken in October!  Are you excited?  You know you are.  Before I go any further though, I would like to ask one thing of you.  If you would like to leave comments saying that my outfit is ugly or my makeup is bad or my husband is old and bald, feel free!  However, please don’t leave comments attacking my children.  I realize that my blog is public, but everyone who reads my blog is an adult, and I don’t think as an adult you ever have the right to make fun of children.  Especially children as beautiful as mine!  Now, let me jump down off my soap box, so we can get to the pictures:

















These are just a handful of my favorite pictures, but there are many more!  If you’d like to see them all, you can check them out on Facebook.  The photos were taken by a friend of mine, she does a fabulous job and is very reasonably priced.  If you live in my area, be sure to check her out at Tracy B. Originals.

P.S.  Which is your favorite family photo?  I had our Christmas card all designed and ready to order when Shawn said “I don’t like the idea of a Fall picture on a card that says Merry Christmas.”  What the?  Who said he even got a vote?

Tami - The pictures are FABULOUS!! I love the one of the four of you walking away holding hands! So cute. My favorite of the four of you looking & smiling at the camera is the one of the cobble stone bridge! Gorgeous! And of course all of the pictures of the girls are adorable too!

Who in the right mind would ever say anything mean about you, Shawn, or your beautiful little girls? I just don't get why people have to demean others to make themselves feel better!?!?!

OMG these are great. I love the black and white of the four of you on the bridge. WAYYY cute. And I hope you didn't get up on your soapbox because someone ACTUALLY said something. Because I will cut them.

I think the b&w of yall on the bridge is cute, and it doesn't necessary look "fall-ish" for the Christmas card ;)
Also, I'm still a little jealous of Lainey's hair. Just sayin.

Erin said...

ok love the pictures .. what an amazing place!! Love the 2nd to last one of the girls it is stunning ... and I also love the one of you guys sitting with the girls on your laps in the leaves . . sooo need both of those on a christmas card!

Jess said...

Wait. Has someone made fun of your kids? WHY? WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

I mean, you have really cute kids. And they're KIDS. Who makes fun of kids?

Ugh. I hate people.

ps. you guys look fab, btw. Love the pics!

Shell said...

Love the pics! My two favs of the whole family are the one of you all sitting on the bridge or walking away holding hands. Though I'd probably go with the bridge one for a card.

Christa said...

LOVE these pictures!! SOO cute! The scenery is beautiful!

Marie@PoutyPinkPrincess said...

Love the pictures! What a beautiful family!

MommyLovesStilettos said...

OMG I love them all! SO cute!! And someone actually said something about your kids!?!? WHose ass do I need to kick!?

Ange said...

I am so proud of you for saying not to say anything about your kids. BUT, and this is a big but, I was really hoping the girl would say something again and you would finally give me permission to rip her a new asshole.

ANYWAY... I love all the pictures. Could we start working out a plan for at least one of your girls to marry at least one of my boys?

caraheck said...

great pictures! Alivia looks so grownup without bangs, adorable!

Danielle said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE them! My hubby said the same things about using the fall pictures for Christmas cards...so I told him I'd have to go shopping for more clothes and he'd have to dress up and smile again...he then quickly agreed that I had made the right decision about the cards:)

Mommy on the Spot said...

You and your family are BEAUTIFUL!

I think you should totally use these pics for the Christmas card.

My favorites are the one with your daughters hugging and the whole family sitting on the ground with all the leaves.

* Tyly * said...

What the heck?!?! You know I'm going to go and troll old comments to see what you're talking about. I just can't imagine someone saying something about your GORGEOUS girls!!!! Beyond insane.

As I told you before, the pictures are gorgeous!!!!

Kelsey Claire said...

They are all fabulous! I can't decide which one I like best! I really love the one of you and your bald hubby (just kidding). Your girls are gorgeous!

* Tyly * said...

So did you delete the rude comment? Or maybe I overlooked it. Seriously, I'm searching over here... :)

Amanda M. said...

OH MY. These pictures are soooooo beautiful. I think the girls should model. They are so gorgeous and so photogenic!

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

wait- what?? did you make that speech because someone ACTUALLY said something bad about your kids...? ugh, catty bitches.

your pictures came out awesome and i'm going to tell you why:

1. beautiful, happy family.
2. cute outfits.
3. great shots that don't look posed or cheesy.

i vote for the first family pic.

Llama said...

WOW! Those pictures are gorgeous! You can totally put a fall picture in for a Christmas card...people add beach themed pictures all of the time and that is totally acceptable!
I too vote for the first one!

Taylor-Made Wife said...

Luckily, I think you and your whole family are fabulous so I couldn't begin to think of a negative comment. I love the pictures of the girls...their smiles make them look so innocent. My favorite family photo is the one of you guys walking awawy from the camera into the woods, but I guess when you send Christmas cards to people they want to see your faces...or at least the girls faces.

Cara Smith said...

Who could possibly say anything bad about any of your pictures? They are gorgeous!

I like the one of the whole family sitting in the leaves.

As for fall pictues on a Christmas card...your fall pictures look like whe Christmas looks like where I live, so it works.

Charbelle said...

Who in the world would have anything negative to say about your beautiful girls? For that matter who has anything negative to say about you and Shawn??? RIDICULOUS!!!!
LOVE the pictures, all fabulous!!! If he doesn't love the idea of fall on a Christmas card what about if you went the black and white picture route?

Brittany said...

Ok...if someone commented and said something ugly about your ridiculously beautiful girls then you need to slap a bitch! How rude!!

Moving on....your pictures are gorgeous and your family is absolutely adorable!

I'm pretty sure the hubs doesn't get a vote on the picture.

Amy said...

Awww, Tami they are ALL gorgeous! My favorite is the one of all four of you walking away through all the trees and leaves:)

And just for the record...you are hot, your husband is adorable, and your girls are stunning!!! Whoever disagrees with this is obviously blind.

Melissa said...

Those pictures are freaking awesome! And who would saw mean things about your adorable daughters? That would be SO not cool.

As for not using the picture for your Christmas card. I sortove see Shawn's point; however, those pictures are too awesome not to use!

Heidi said...

Fantastic photos. Not surprised that Tracy would be so talented. She always was if memory serves.
I know it's not photo card appropriate, but the walking away shot is my fave!
You have a beautiful family!

Heidi said...

P.S. I kind of agree with Shawn on this one, but don't tell him:-)

Anonymous said...

The pictures are amazing! Your girls are SO cute! We did some not to long ago as well, Myself the fiance and our kids (two dogs! lol) And my hunny said the same thing, the pictures were very fall looking and I had Merry Christmas on the card, he didn't approve haha!

We compromized and I changed it to Happy Holidays! lol

d.a.r. said...

These are freaking fantastic!! I love the colors and you all look so great in all of them!

And, seriously?!?! Did I miss something? Who the eff makes fun of someone else's kids??

The Random Blogette said...

No way! He doesn't get a vote! We are using one of our fall pics for our xmas cards. I love all of them but my favorites are the ones were the girls are throwing leaves in the air (on FB). Oh and the ones where the girls are walking towards the camera. So cute!

Nikosmommy said...

Gorgeous family photos....fall-time memories you'll have forever!
And you're so lucky that your girls are old enough to stand still during photos!

Amanda said...

Your baby girls are beautiful! I see a Christmas card in one of these :)

Meghan said...

These are super amazeballs! I love the coloring on them, too! I think you should frame them all over the house!

Sazzle said...

I want Alivia's boots!

My favorite is where they are throwing leaves

...but seriously? I'm guessing someone said something bad about your girls for you to post that. Do I need to kick someone in the baby maker for you?

They are beautiful pics and your daughters are too cute for words!!!

Jessica said...

Seriously, girl, I don't think I could even pick out ONE negative thing about any of you guys if you offered me money to do it. You're all adorable and these pictures are stunning!

I love the one of you & Shawn together alone and the girls laying down with their chins on their fists - so cute!

But, for the family shot, I would vote for the black and white one on the bridge...adorable!!

Corrie and Phil said...

Awesome pictures! Awesome! How could anyone say anything negative about your adorable girls?

I really like the walking away picture. They're all great!

One Take On Life - Heather said...

Beautiful pictures. I love fall pictures, I love the look of fallen leaves. And your girls are just adorable.
I love the one of you walking as a family with your backs to the camera.

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

Who would ever make fun of any of you. You 4 scream "models"!!!!

The pic of the 4 of you from behind is absolutely PRICELESS!!!

Lil' Woman said...

Gorgeous photos....you have such a beautiful family!!

Yankee Girl said...

Someone said something nasty about your kids???

That is crazy because you have the most beautiful kids EVER.

And yes, your husband is bald, but he is such a cutie!

Love the pics. I expecially like the ones with the girls playing in the leaves.
