Would-be Snow Angels

We had a ton of snow this week!  It snowed for a week straight, after all.  I was hoping to do the Christmas photo shoot yesterday, but Sophia has had an awful case of strep throat since Thursday, and yesterday she was still feeling pretty icky.  I kept her home from church today, but then I decided we were going to have to do the shoot once everyone else got home, so I got her all prettied up and away we went. 

ANYWAY.  Wasn't I talking about snow?

All of the snow melted today!  Because the temperature was in the 40s and it rained.  On December 2!  What is the world coming to?

So no snow angels.  Just plain angels on the beach.  Beach angels.

(Bria was in fine form today!)

Puccini didn't really want to cooperate, but I did get one good picture with her in it.  It's going on the Christmas card, though, so I can't post it yet.

I love to see my girlies laughing and being silly together.

But then I asked Chloe and Sophia to kiss Bria on the cheeks, and this is what happened:

By far my favorite photo in a long time.  Love it.

And I love them.  Aren't they beautiful?  And isn't it astounding how much they have grown from last Christmas?  When will it ever stop?

PS  Yes, I've made it another Christmas with matching dresses.  I guess I won't say it will be the last year anymore, because I might surprise myself next year!

  1. You really do have such a beautiful family. I can't believe how big Sophia is! Last time I saw her she just seemed so little! Love their sweet dresses, and their sweet mama. These are wonderful.

  2. They are beautiful! And I think Bria has changed the most--- she looks completely like a young woman now.

  3. You can totally see their cute little personalities in these pictures. I'm not sure which one I like the most. :)

  4. Love the color of the dresses. You should try doing these with a 16 month old and a six year old--both boys. YIKES!!!! We got like one shot with half way normal faces--I guess you'll be seeing it soon enough.

  5. LOVE the Christmas photo shoot. The color of the dresses is stunning on all three girls!

    Poor Puccinni...... : )

  6. Cute dresses, cute girls! I wish I was interested in Christmas photos of my kids will ever look this good!

  7. Your girls are so very beautiful!
