Family Pictures 2009

We finally got our family pictures taken! I think they turned out great! Here they are...

~Meet Sydney. 6 years old. Loves all kind of food...except mushrooms, eggs, and milk. Very sensitive and empathetic to the plight of others. Oh, and she loves the camera.

~Meet Morgan. She is quite the opposite of Sydney. She is feisty. And independent. And opinionated and tells ya "whats up." But she has a very soft side that is hard to penetrate but I love it when it happens. She is a picky eater who loves eggs and milk. She is also the comic relief in our family.
~Sydney loves to play the, "What am I spelling, mom?" game. It goes like this, "Mom what am I spelling, Y-B-D-A-Q-O?" I say, "I have no idea." She grins.
~Meet my family. We are outdoorsy, board game lovin, reading fanatics, prank pulling, lots of laughs sorta folks.
~Meet my husband. He loves pizza and rootbeer. Not a fan of spicy foods. Not a fan of new foods. But he is a fan of giving me backrubs, foot massages, and snuggling.
~This picture shows Sydney and Morgan's personalities. Morgan has a "My parents totally bribed me for this smile, and to stay clean, and not to jump in the dirt to make 'smoke'. I made out great today!" kind of grin on. Sydney has a, "I'm beautiful. I know it. I'm gonna show it off" sort of pose going on.
~At this point Syd's sugar was low. She hadn't told us quite yet, but looking at this picture I can "see" the low in her face. Morgan was finally in a groove! Check out that little, genuine, beautiful smile!
~These are the faces of my dynamic duo. The jokesters of the house. They are responsible for such posts as "He is going to pop mom." Phrases heard in a diabetic home Parts 1 and 2. The I Told You So Moments And the popular Toilet Paper Seminar
~This is my better half. He is responsible for keeping me sane and smiling. I'm responsible for feeding him. It's a good trade off, don't you think?
~My family. We are a little crazy at times. We are on the go often. We tend to drive each other insane every now and then. But we drive each other insane out of love. That makes it ok. :-)
Now you have met my family!

I dont like your pics very much...just kidding, I just had to say something different than everyone else ;-) They look awesome. Can you believe how big your babies are??? It is so crazy. Thanks for calling me awhile ago, I meant to call back but we have been sick at our house, so any free time is spent doing nothing or napping. I hope all is well with you and hopefully we will talk soon.
