Favorite Photo Friday - "Two Cowgirls and a Cool Dude"

November 11, 2011

Time is passing by so quickly I can barely stand it. I am trying not to let myself go into panic mode, because the holidays are coming fast and furiously. My "to-do" list is a mile long and instead of crossing things off my list, I keep piling things on. Not to mention that I got a summons for Jury Duty on a Federal Case during the month of December!!! I need that like I need a hole in my head. I know there are many of you out there that feel the same way this time of year. Getting out from the under "the growing list" is a bit of a challenge.

There is one thing that always kicks the stress level up a notch or two for me..... the Christmas Card photos where you want all of your kids giving you that perfect smile for the perfect card. Yeah, it never quite happens that way and things usually do not go as planned.
All that being said, I wanted this task off my plate, pronto!

Our weather turned cold pretty quickly this year, but we did have a few days that reached mid 60's this week, so I figured I better take advantage of the warm days while we had them.

Wednesday, after work, I had exactly 45 minutes of daylight left to try to capture what I had in my head. Talk about putting the pressure on yourself.

I didn't get exactly what I wanted, but I think I have something to work with. They are the only photos that I took this week, and since I don't like to share my photos before the cards hit the mail, I thought I could give you this partial sneak preview!!!

Thanks Aunt Marla for sending the girls an early birthday gift that just happened to coordinate with their outfits!!! They are digging their new pink boots and love to stomp around in them. They look super cute with almost everything they wear.....I just can't get enough of them. Thanks for sending a little "Texas" our way! Every time we look at them, we think of y'all:)

Have a wonderful and warm weekend everyone!

SUPER cute! I can already see I am going to love them. And coming from the expert photographer, I have NO doubt these turned out beautifully! I still have to tackle that 'task' too, but waiting until I have a little more practice out of 'auto' under my belt... soon though! ;)

Khloe has those same boots, and I agree, they are darling. LOVING the dresses, too! Did Robin make them? Cute, cute, cute!!!

Jury duty in DECEMBER!?! Really!?! ~ that's just not right! Praying for God to sustain you and multiply your time to get things done in the hustle and bustle of the season. You really are superwoman/mom aren't you!!?!! :)

Blessings & Hugs,
~ Tanya

I can only imagine how adorable they must look in full view. Those boots are so cute! Can't wait to see the final product.

I agree that the days are flying by so quickly. Thanksgiving will be here before we blink an eye. I'm almost finished xmas shopping for the kids. Last year I waited and rushed at the end. Swore I wouldn't have that happen this time. Doing a lot of online purchases. Makes life so much easier.

Hope you have a fabulous Friday!

Oh my goodness, Marla ROCKS!!! Those are the coolest boots!! I am sure your cards will be fabulous!! The sneak peek looks adorable.

UGH about the jury duty right in the midst of holiday chaos. :( I got called to jury duty once and showed up and was sent home. There is always hope that happens to you!

Beautiful photos! I know what you mean trying to get the perfect shots. It's especially hard when it's your own kids. I don't know why but it is not nearly as hard when I am working with clients. Happy Friday!

Adorable! I added my blog to the list, and this Chenzhou mommy biffed. I accidentally put my first name instead of the blog name. Is there any way you can correct it? THANKS! It should say Musings of An Adoptive Mom and not Cara.....so sorry!!!
