Cute Clothes, Family Friends, Talented Hope

During this busy photography season I have really felt like I have been able to stay on top everything by some miracle. I was getting my shoots edited fast, keeping up on our own family pictures, making it to all the kids' activities and keeping the house somewhat in shape. Of course, I haven't worked out or eaten very healthy but something has gotta give. And then there is the laundry. I wash it all but folding it or ironing it and getting it put away is another story. So, the past couple days I have mostly stayed away from the computer and worked on that in between errands. It's been a blast :-)! But it's done and now I have today to get to work editing shoots before our fun Thanksgiving plans.
So, here is some catching up from last week.
Mike grew up with Josh, who has been on the blog before. He and his sweet family have been living in Houston the past 5 years while he was in school and they are now done and moving away. Although we didn't see them tons over the years because schedules are crazy, we did try to get together every now and then and were able to attend baby blessings, baptisms, etc. It was such a special treat to have him and Stephanie and Eli be a part of those special memories in our lives. Good luck in Washington guys!
(and I don't know what happened with the girls' outfits this day...sometimes it's scary what they come up with left on their own in the closet, and yesterday Preston was pretty particular about what he wore as well, oh the fun!)

Tuesday night Ella and I headed straight from the pool to Hope's concert. She just finished marching band season and sang some songs with the jazz band. She sounded awesome and looked beautiful. I think she starts back up with the bassoon again now. Band is a whole other culture that I never knew existed :-).
we found these glasses on the floor...Ella loves glasses lately

And a few of Preston with his buddy Bennett. Ian joined us later on for a bit and since those are his two favorite friends, he was in heaven!
