family pictures 2015

If you follow me on any type of social media you probably saw these family pictures taken by the wonderful Emily Cooper. It may not seem like a huge deal but my siblings, though all of us live within 30 minutes of each other, are rarely if ever together. So these pictures were a huge deal. In early November I was starting to mentally list who I would need to get Christmas presents for and when it came to my parents I was just exhausted by the thought. I pride myself on giving good presents to people but I don't know that I've ever gotten a gift for my parents that was quality. I just feel like if they want something, they will go get it! So as I was thinking a thought came to my mind that I could organize family pictures, set it all up, make my siblings split it between all of us, etc. 
We gave the gift to our parents on Thanksgiving since the pictures were before Christmas. I made up a little poem to make it less awkward siblings were LESS THAN IMPRESSED and I need validation, dangit!

Dear Mom and Dad, 
It’s Christmas time 
& we know it’s true
That it’s very hard to buy presents for you!

All day and all night were spent in thought
But all it did was leave us distraught

Until one little Elf came up with a clever scheme
And knew it was time to assemble the team

So On December 20th at 12:30 PM
Let’s hope this isn’t mayhem

A photographer will be there to snap away
Some new family pictures to display!

Here are my siblings! I guess I should say half-siblings, it got confusing when I was trying to explain to Emily why my sister and brother have a sister that is not my sister...haha

 So these pictures convinced me to stay blonde instead of going red...also we might look like a cute little emo couple but I really like these pictures!

 But this one is my fav, double chins and all. Also I swear i'm getting a haircut tomorrow.

 Do you guys see that six foot tall kid right there? That's my friggin nephew. I was in 4th grade when he was born and I was obsessed as obsessed can be. Now he is all grown up and has the funniest personality and it's just weird how time flies and how I can feel old as crap at 24 

Speaking of old, my sister was talking about how they are going to deal with the car situation once my niece starts driving soon. That was a mind blowing realization. Isn't she so pretty? 

 My favorite phase of all my nieces and nephews has been from age 2-5. They are just the cutest and they don't annoy me, haha. Josh is going to be the youngest grand baby for a long time and he knows how to ham it up. We were being best buds on Christmas and he makes my heart grow twenty times. Especially with how much he loves Mark.

Annnnnd here we are!
