As my last post said, we finally got some snow in VA. Of course I had to put my ring in our little bit of flakes
Steve and I went over to see my niece and nephew while there were a few traces of snow left! When we got there, miss grumypants was not stoked about waking up from a nap. She pretty much pretended I wasn’t there and continued with her blanky caressing and occasionally looked at me with this stare like, “How dare you interrupt this routine of mine!?!?!” It’s getting to be the norm, but I used the whole “Steve is here!!!” line. Works like a charm to cheer her up.
Then the real fun started! Davis could hardly wait to play in the snow with us. What I think is probably the funniest set of pictures I have of my family is what resulted….. Look at that FACE!!!
What you are about to see is my entry for “World’s Greatest Uncle” award. Wait for it…..
BOOM! Best picture EVER!!!! IN THE FAAAACE!!! haha Can you see Steve’s “Oh my gosh- I just hit a kid in the face with a snowball” look??? And for those of you who are worried about Davis- trust me- he did not let up the whole time we were out there and got some great face shots himself.
Check out Davis coveting Steve’s snowball!!! His eyes stayed glued even in the next one!
And then Dad came out to play. Davis immediately went full force but Dad wasn’t having it! Check out that running form Davis takes when high tailing it outta there!!!
This is my favorite picture out of the bunch. I was showing my sister how to use my camera (well… how to FOCUS my camera! haha) After many failed attempts, this is what happened. I am pointing at Mary James’ eye to tell her to “put that little square THERE!” Mary James doesn’t seem to like the idea of a box being on her eye! That expression cracks me up!
Here Mary James is feeding Steve “ice cream.” Then she was telling him something about how the ice cream falls from the sky. I love that little weirdo!
Here is my sister’s dog, George, making his debut on my blog
Then Melissa thought she would get in on the action. She thought she was soooo slick. You’ll see how THAT turns out….
What a great afternoon! So many laughs. So many smiles. So many memories. SO SO happy I have them documented forever!!! The more I do these the more I fall in love with lifestyle shoots. These told the perfect story of a simple afternoon with my family and I think that is so important! Perfectly posed pictures would hardly do this awesomeness any justice. Hope you all had a great week!
