josh, colleen, lilah and cj drove down on friday, november 8th to start the birthday celebration for gianna. we had decided that we would all get our picture taken while they were here so that we could give them as gifts for Christmas to all the grandparents. mom and wayne were driving down on the 9th, and that also happened to be the first school mass that roman was going to be attending, so we had to re-schedule our photo shoot from friday morning to thursday evening. which meant that our weary travelers only had about 1 1/2 hours to get themselves ready for our pictures after their long drive. i'm sharing all of the pictures because i think it shows that sometimes you get a few good pictures, but most of them leave a little to be desired! ha ha
notice anyone missing? roman was having a hard time dealing with the fact that his chapstick lid had fallen in the river and was floating away. so, it was just the girls and cj for a few.
and the bugs were awful out over the water. awful.
this is my favorite picture of them. lilah is doing the thing where she smiles and tilts her head to the side. love that.
and he's back in the game.
lilah was obsessed with gianna's shoes
sleepy time...but, they are both looking up.
love this picture of the boys. so handsome.
how many chins do i have?
