We had our friend casually snap a bunch for us to use in a card and baby was so good about posing! Especially for a 9 wk old!
Here were our final 5 top shots. I picked the 3rd one b/c we are both smiling.

Those are some awesome pics! I like the 3rd one best as well.

My family is split-up right now Olivia is stranded at Nana and Papa's house because we are snowed in. Our street isn't plowed and we have 18 inches of snow. Our Honda and Subaru are both too low to the ground to drive out onto the main artery. Looks like we won't be able to pick her up until at least Christmas Eve and possibly not until Friday.

Nana (my mom) has promised, though, not to tell her it's Christmas on Thursday so we can do the Santa thing and presents when we do get her back. We already had our family's Hanukkah celebration with my parents on Friday/Saturday, so she has those presents to play with until then

So.... We don't have holiday photos yet, but I'm hoping to by New Year's

Can't wait to see everybody else's!

Orchidez - LOVE your family pictures! Jasper looks so cute and you all look so happy!

We didn't do a family picture this year (pa-shaw, who wants to see us??) but we do have some of Nora!

This was our Christmas card!

I love this one as well!

And of course...Bah Humbug!

Oh my gosh, your skin is beautiful!

Here's ours: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...2b&id=17502545

Carolyn was having none of it, so that's the best one we got. All the ones where she was looking at the camera, she was crying. And of course, when she was smiling, by the time the picture was taken, she had completely changed expressions.

Orchidez- Weren't we due date buddies on 10/20? Our boys were born one day apart! I love it how Jasper is "dressed to the nines" at 9 weeks!

mamanurse- wow! I didn't realize you were so innundated there. Sorry that you're missing Olivia right now.

Great holiday cards, mamas!

I'll get a better picture of the whole family later, and will post after this weekend, but here is our holiday card (actually a birth announcment this year) photo.

I love pics threads! I'm very busy lately so I don't have time to comment individually, but seriously ladies, these October babies (and their families) are gorgeous!

I am considering re-doing holiday photos because ours were really rushed (trying to do them before Poppa Bee had to catch a flight). Still, there were a few cute shots of Calla:

Calla in her xmas dress
The cape wouldn't fasten around her neck/chins!

Calla in her xmas onesie from Gram and jingle bell antlers.

And here is our holiday card for 2008: Holiday Card

Yes! Our boys were duedate twins!
Thanks- I decided I couldn't resist the Paul Frank baby tuxedo.
Your announcement is so sweet!

Carrie: as I commented on FB, Nora is so CUTE in these!

Crabby: Gorgeous pic m'dear!

MK: You did a great job with two wee ones doing a photo on your own! WOW. Sweet babes.

Cat: These are precious with a lot of heart. The card is hilarious too.

JL: You almost had me! : Cute stuff.

Bee/Allibut: You guys made my day with the skin compliment! have been feeling ugly so thank you ladies.

Allibut: Allison, Carolyn looks like a little doll so I don't know what you are talking about when you say you had a hard time. Her lil chin kills me...so dainty and sweet.

MamaNurse: Anxiously awaiting your pix! We were behind schedule too. Our holiday card we made up with these isn't even here to us yet. Then I have to address them all and mail out.

How adorable! He's his own stocking stuffer!

Lovely pictures. We did a collage of photos for our card, but here's one we used with all three kids.
