family pictures & it's v-day!

i suppose an obligatory "happy valentine's day" is in order, yes?  i hope everyone out there is feeling the love on this absolutely silly holiday.  it's a silly holiday that i don't really mind though.  i mean, it's an excuse to eat some extra chocolate & do something sweet for that special someone, right?

sam & i have some valentine's day traditions.  they include eating pizza & drinking root beer outta champagne glasses & making handmade cards.  last year p-ray got in on the pizza & card-making action & i'm kinda excited about making this a family holiday rather than a couples holiday.  today parker & i are gonna hand-craft a card for sam & make chocolate dipped strawberries!  should be a good time.

anywho, i've mentioned having our family pictures taken like fifteen thousand times & now it's time to actually share 'em all here on the blog.  they were taking by the amazing stacy jacobsen & i am SO happy to finally have some legit family photos.  i've already ordered one in a 16x24" canvas for a photo wall & UPS says it should be here on friday.  i'm kinda freaking out.

also, these are watermarked with my blog name only because the images she gave us weren't watermarked but i don't want watermark-less pictures of my family out there on the interwebz, so thus i slabbed "a good life" on there.  i in no way took my own family's pictures.  again, they were done by stacy jacobsen.  check her out.

here we go.










this last one is the one i had blown up on canvas.  i love it!  also, can i just say that parker's hair cannot be tamed?  we wet it down right before pictures to try & reduce the flyaways but it still somehow managed to fro out a bit.  ah well, it makes me laugh.  i love that little monster.

and i have to give sam some credit... he hates having his picture taken but he went along with this fairly well.  probably mostly because i told him this gets him off the hook for a good year or so of family picture-taking.  that alone shoulda given him something to smile about!

  12. Happy love day, friend!! I like your traditions, they sound fun! Philip and I don't have traditions cause we're kinda downers and don't really like hallmark holiday's. BUT I think I want to change that now that we have kids. And... you already know I love your family pics! Can't wait to see what you do with your collage wall!
