Over Christmas Mikes parents arranged for a couple in their ward to come take family pictures. Here are some of the photos. If you know me, you know that I'm a perfectionist at heart, I did a little editing on our family photo above, fixed a little lighting, extended Carters shirt to cover up the onsie that was showing, fixed a few glares and fixed a few blotches on my chest from Owen. I wish I was better at photoshop.

Not my favorite set of photos but they are better than the ones they took last year. In general I still prefer candid photos rather than posed. I love it when photographers can capture what happens behind the scenes. But none the less I was grateful to have photos taken at all. With two small kids its a harder task than I would have thought.

Bryan and Nikki. Bryan is in his last semester of Dental School in Oklahoma. Paul and Brenda. They were married this past April in Portland.
Shala, Brian and Landon. Shala is expecting another baby boy at the end of March.
Val and Charlotte. Our two little guys.
Landon and Carter. This was the only photo we got of both cousins during the shoot.
The siblings... I guess you had to be there to fully appreciate the joke of a picture this is. :)
