Cowboy Brothers and a little Cowgirl

***Click on the pictures to make them larger***
















I asked my friend Heather to come and take a few shots of the kids in their costumes last night. She has a great camera, I've already asked for one for Christmas, and my point and shoot just can't capture these moments quite like this! They turned out GREAT! As you can see, Addison wasn't very interested in taking pictures. We made the most of it. It probably wasn't the best time of day for her but we had to try anyway! My friend Laura is taking professional pictures of our family on Saturday in the morning and I'm sure she'll be a much happier camper! :)

Mimi helped me sew the kids costumes this year, with a little help from Ma-maw on Addison's vest, so it was important to have memorable pictures! She got some great shots of the kids and it's amazing what bribing with candy will do for a child's attention span! :) They are going to have SO much fun tonight, and I think they'll be the cutest dressed kids in the whole neighborhood! A mommy should think nothing less! :)

Thanks Heather! Mimi and Ma-maw are going to LOVE these pictures!

These are SO GREAT!!! I love those costumes (makes me remember when Kellen was a cowboy baby), Heather did a FABULOUS job!! So I'm thinking that if nothing turns out this weekend, at least you have Heather's great pictures. :)

Have I told you lately how wonderful it is to be Mimi and Papa? What wonderful pictures! The most handsome cowboys I have ever seen and that is one beautiful little cowgirl! The boys just scared her with those weapons!

I see that you DID get them their trusty guns.......At the Dollar Store?

Love,
Mimi and Papa

Okay I've already picked out the ones I want copies of...ALL OF THEM! OH my word Beth, these are absolutely precious and priceless too. So glad you were able to get such great pictures. Girl you are so blessed to have friends who are such great photographers. And I LOVE the costumes. You and Mimi and Ma-Maw did a great job all of them.

And without a doubt my nephews and niece were the cutest trick or treaters in the whole state of NC...I am sure of it!

Looks like Addison isn't a big fan of dressing up. How funny! They look great.
