This year we decided to do fall pictures again but to do it earlier in the fall season and to change locations to stop the bad feelings/flashbacks from hitting me. I actually had a funny dream the other night which is the first non-gloomy dream I have had in a long while.
I started getting this one ready, and she insisted adamantly that she wanted to wear the same dress from last year. My Mom recently bought her a precious new peaches and cream dress that is red and blue but girlfriend insisted that this was her fall dress picture. So much for doing it so differently!
This was the best one of the three I got! It is challenging to get three strong-willed children to cooperate but I did bribe them with pizza for dinner! I told them if they did not cooperate we would have leftovers and no pizza. HA!
This picture makes me belly laugh because Hope is the official holder of the football for David to kick. I just pray that she does not lose any teeth in the process!! Ha!
Precious family memories that mean even more to me now because of the nightmare. Little did we know that last year when we were doing those fall pictures in our backyard that those would be the last pictures of the kids before cancer came crashing into our world. Those picture will always be bittersweet to me because they signal the end of our innocence and maybe the last pictures with his red hair not in a hospital. :(
