It is SO time to update!!

Family photos.... yah, you have them done when you get together! For some reason, even though my family lives in my area, we haven't had a family photo taken since... well.... 2002!! I am in awe at how much we have all changed! Check it out!! Here is the one we took when they were itty bitty and "monkey" wasn't even a twinkle in our eyes...

Here is the run down:

    I love seeing the changes! Family shots are so much fun, especially when you can get everyone looking and smiling! Great pics, thanks for sharing! :)

    Great pic. My mom loves when we get the whole family together for a pic. It happens about once every other year. It is hard to get a pic of so many little ones.

    Love your picture! We haven't had one in years, either! I think it's time. It's amazing how much they change!

    It is soooo hard to get everyone together at the same time and dressing alike and clean! Its hard work. I love them both.

    You have a beautiful family, my sweet friend. Happy Saturday!

    What a beautiful family you have! We too often forget to do this when we get together with family. Really need to make the effort next time - we all change and grow up so quickly. tfs! :)

    I love that you have all these family pictures, so cool! We love Florida and your weather is amazing. I am sitting here looking at snow still on the ground from the last big snowstorm, although it's finally melting.

    I enjoyed your post about coupons. I do most of my shopping at Costco (doesn't take coupons) and Winco (takes mfg. coupons but not internet).

    You are doing a great job with your grocery bill. Do you have any posts where you have written anything on menu planning or recipes or anything? I didn't see anything.

    I know your kids are younger than my two so my bill will be higher but I am always interested in how others are saving money!

    Oh what a great picture! We have never had pics done with either of our families. Maybe we will have to try that soon.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Isn't it amazing how much they change over such a seemingly short period of time?

    Great family pictures. I LOVE the princess's smile in family photo one.
