You'll get a happy meal

Today we took the kids on a little photo shoot. I wanted to get a pic of them that I could send out with my Christmas letter. Of course the photo shoot didn't go without any whining, grumbling and bribing. I told them if they were good, they could get a happy meal. Fortunately I think I came away with a few good shots I can use to mail out.

There is a railroad bar-b-q about 3 miles from our house. 

We headed down to a park on the San Marcos river.

Stephen took this pic with his phone.

More by the railroad bar-b-q.

The train happened to just be going by the railroad bar-b-q...I like this shot...very Texan I thought. :) Oh and yes, Madeline likes to pose a lot putting her arm around her brother. :)

Such cute kids!! I love the shots you got! Kids are so hard to photograph, but you did a great job, and picked great backdrops!

LOVE the pictures. LOVE the sweaters. It's fun to see you and your kids dressing warmly even though you probably don't have too.

You and Stephen have been blessed with some seriously cute kids BTW.

How fun. Our boys are 12 and 15 now and won't pose for any photos at all. Put their hands across their faces if they see me trying to take a photo. Sigh.
