An Average Monday Evening…

We had a fun time on Monday night. I think the pictures speak for themselves.

Everyone says mom and I look alike! When I posted their wedding picture on my Facebook page people thought it was ME in the wedding dress! While I’m flattered, I don’t think I look much like my mom! Maybe in the cheeks and the nose? What do you think?

One of my favorite humans is my brother Karl. I love the way he is teaching Carver to become a young man, garden, and speak spanish. Karl is a friend to all. Karl has high expectations for Carver and he just becomes the most kind young man when he’s around Karl and Karl doesn’t allow anything less. He has such a way of getting through to him. Needless to say, we are beyond blessed with Karl in our lives. He’s also Gannon’s godfather.

I tried to get a nice picture of mom and Rosie together – you can see how that went. Can you even believe how beautiful my mom is? I swear she is like Benjamin Button and ages in reverse. I’m serious guys – she looked older when she was 40 than she does at 54!

We spent most of our night watching the birds fly over and land on the water tower

My sassy niece Georgia – this is the most smile I could get out of her. I thought Carver was sassy but oof da. Kelli has her hands full with that little girl!

Introducing the most photogenic baby ever: My nephew and Godson Jasper! I don’t know what it is about this little boy but whenever he is around, I turn into a master photographer. I was the first one to capture his smile when he was just hours old and they even used the picture for the baby announcement! This little boy is so smiley and giggly. He just adores the camera as you can tell!

I guess some of the best photo shoots aren’t posed and the best nights aren’t planned! I would much prefer this style of photography – very casual vs. posed and smiling at the camera. I feel like I was able to capture some personality last night – all with my iPhone 11 on portrait mode and a few of my favorite presets from Jenna Kutcher!

That’s all I have for tonight folks! Thanks for reading!

    It was the open mouth smile in your mom’s pic that made us all go “twins!”
