I Had Planned to Say...

...wish us luck!  

I was SO ahead of the game this year.  Months ago -- literally over the summer -- I scheduled our holiday pictures for today.  I wanted pictures with the gorgeous leaves, and I'd just missed that window the past two years.

This year, I was going to be on top of pictures amidst the vibrant leaves...and files back in plenty of time to get my holiday cards out before April.  Ahem.

I was going to ask for well-wishes that the girls would smile, and that we'd be able to capture them in true form.


I feel as if the universe just didn't see it in the cards today.

It's cold and wet and soggy.  We had to reschedule.

Grrr...and I already had on make-up, too!  HA!

Fortunately the photographer (a fantastic fellow twin mama) was able to reschedule us for next weekend already.

I know it will be worth the wait...and even if the leaves are gone by then, I'm sure we'll still get some gems.


And maybe if I ask for well-wishes a full week in advance, our girls will be full of belly laughs by this time next week???

Best of luck. Hope the weather holds up. And the girls are I the right mood ( and if not, it's all part of the memories) though if these pics you above are anything to go by you have no reason to worry. I like the 2010 picture a lot :)

I love the idea of fall photos! And something tells me y'all will be just as beautiful next week!

PS-What a waste of make-up, though, right?? haha

Good luck! I'm sure it will turn out magic and everything will line up just perfect (even if not as perfectly planned). ;-)

These are smaller than your fall photo tradition post but still bigger than you normally do.

I've foudn when I select large, I need to click on large and then original size, and then wait a second or two and then it displays bigger :)

these days I just post extra large :)

HOw do you do it - type the post and then select pics?
