Aspen loves to be in front of the camera, yes siree. But I guess she's at that age where 1. putting your hands on your lap, 2. looking at the camera, and 3. smiling, are hard to do all at the same time. Anyway, last weekend my awesome pal Celeste took some photos for us. Because she's so awesome.
Her husband Derek came too, with their little Maylee (who's one) in tow. And they were so great about helping us with the kids. Derek even had sparklers for Aspen to oooh and aaah at. And bribe her with :)
Anyway I know I should be better about family photos. I just kept telling Eric how one day we will be so glad we did this! When our kids are grown and we have these beautiful lasting photos to stare at while they're gone.
Eric was a great sport. He's not a fan of getting his picture taken, but he was so good about doing silly shots with me. And I loved how these piggy back ones turned out. We had some of these taken for our engagement photos but we chose different ones and I've always regretted it. Anyway the sad part is we didn't get a family photo of us all smiling so I may have to try it again sometime when the grandparents are around, but I think Celeste did an awesome job with these. And I'm glad that my dad asked for family photos for Christmas!
