workin on the railroad

we dedicated last saturday night to family pictures. this is something i force everyone to do one time a year. i put up with a lot of eye rolling, grumbling and general grouchiness, but i persevere, bribery in tow.

if i didn't insist on a family photo, i would be failing as a mother- and therefore a human. so there it is.

pure torture.

this year, though, they might've enjoyed it just a little.

i let them climb all over a real life train.

they got filthy.

here are a few of my faves-

i really wish this one was centered better- it's my favorite of him...

love them. And LOVE the fabric banner. A friends Christmas card from last year did something similar, and I've been coveting the look ever since
