wonder cousins!

with 4 kiddos 5 & under,
deciding to do a cousins picture


5 hours before it's supposed to be
a 50th birthday present is quite a feat...


it takes moms who are very
optimistic, energetic & filled with hope...
thankfully my sister & i are just that
(well, she's energetic)


& when you are all of those things,
sometimes


you are rewarded
with magic


(because you've got some sweet, cute kids :)

oh!
we were so happy to get a picture!
it was such a fun shoot!
we threw some balloons in too
thinking that might get some fun shots
& it didn't really work for the four kiddos
but check out these cuties...

this is my favorite
(not just because it's headless
but yes,
that is one reason)

it just seems like a little snip of what having twins is like...

it was so fun to have them here!
my kids LOVE their cousins
& it is especially sweet to see Q with them
i think he may just end up being
one of those great boy babysitters,
when he's not out mowing people over on the soccer field...

kate & i got to hang out late on thursday night
project runway & lots of chatting
plus calzone & adorable fur lined boots
(which i will share soon)
it was a great night :)

i love you kate!
please come back again soon!

here's to sisters & cousins
& photo shoots that turn out
better than you expected...

:)
