Johnson Family Pictures

It felt ironic that both sides of the family decided to update the family pictures within two weeks of each other.  What an adrenaline rush!  We met up with Alan's fam at Memory Grove for this photo session.

By the end of the shoot Sammo had hit his limit, and had already devoured my supply of fruit snacks.  Luckily the photographer had an extra treat that enticed Sam enough to "smile" for five last minutes. His goofy attempt to smile is beyond adorable, he did such a good job.

This picture of all the kids huddled up was my favorite part of the shoot.  The cold set in at a record pace once the sun started to set.  Sam was so excited to hold up the end of the blanket.

Dudley Family Pictures

One of my family's most memorable traditions is taking family pictures everywhere and all the time. How?  Why with the tripod and shutter timer, of course.  Mom is pro at setting things up and running back to the group before the picture is taken.  Now that our family is growing, this has been a more difficult task, particularly with littles.  So this year, getting every body together for pics felt like more of a production, but, as always, taking the pictures is as much fun as seeing the pictures with our goofy fam.

 The Dudley clan currently consists of 12 humans and 1 puppy.

With the craziness of Halloween fun still dying down, the kids, Sammo in particular, were still a bit off.  So we tried to get creative with our poses to make it easier on the kids.

Thanks, Mom, for the pictures!  And thanks to Drew for making faces next to the camera in attempts to get everybody's attention.
