If you stare at the sun too long, you will laugh hysterically.

We had an impromptu Christmas photo session on Saturday.

Testing the lighting…nope not so good.

Testing the quirkiness….perfect.

Testing the action shots….she is too quick for me. OR I am too far behind?
Guess which is the dancer and which is the softball player.

yeah, she CAN jump though!
Do you know how many years I waited to see them laugh together like this? 
 
15 years.

I said 15 years!!!! 


So, yeah, I can throw some attitude NOW!
I’m not looking at you.
I’m NOT.
Ok, I am. 
You are beautiful. Inside and out.

And you laugh just like your mom….full on belly laughs with your mouth wide open to the world.
You poor things.

They are like SUNSHINE to me…I can’t help but stare!
Oh, and this cute guy was there too, who else could take us to dinner and a movie afterwards…cause we were exhausted from all the smiling, leaping, laughing and giving attitude!

Happy Wednesday. 
My wish for you is that you find something that makes you leap for joy (leaping on the inside counts) and that you laugh at least 32 times today. 
And remember, the big wide-open-mouth laughs are the most fun and they burn the most calories!

XOXOXOOX

  1. Those are great family shots! You have also given me hope about my girls getting along better. 😉 There are days when it is obvious they love each other and then there are the \”other\” days…I love the picture of you by the way!

  2. You're going to have trouble picking ONE good picture to use at Christmas. I think all of the pictures with the girls are excellent, but that one of you gets my vote as my favorite. Thanks for sharing the tip on how to most effectively burn calories.
