Pretty as a Picture

Here they are! The long-awaited photos that we had taken before going to Hong Kong, almost 6 weeks ago now. Christin was such a doll for the pictures! Chloe, on the other hand, wasn't having her best morning ever, but Clara Anne did pretty well. All you moms out there already know this, but it's hard to get three children, 3 and under, to all look the same direction, smile, and not do anything weird with their hands or bodies! Anyway, we tried! Enjoy the photos!

Clara Anne was so excited that she got to wear her favorite dres ever for this photo. She has worn this dress almost every day the whole summer. I'm not kidding. The days that it is in the wash she wears something else, and we didn't take it to HK, but other than that, it's been a common sight at our house! I let her wear it for the photos so we could remember it for posterity!

This one is my favorite, I think.

The group shot--I went with red, white and blue for the girls' clothing and loved this big red chair that they had in the studio. I have learned to be VERY vocal about what I want and don't want in the picture! Doesn't Clara Anne look like a big girl?!

There's my girls! Clara Anne, 3.5, Chloe, 2, and Christin, 3 months old. What a gift they are!

Wow! Look at your girls! They are so grown up! I can't believe how fast they grow! I think considering you have 3 to get in a "good" mood for pictures - that your pictures are AWESOME! Can't wait to see you all!

Christin looks like such a doll baby in the first photo! And I expected some weird photos based on your disclaimer, but they all look great!

Clara Anne does look so grown-up! She has the most beautiful, long hair.

What beautiful girls! I love the bonnet Christin has on and I agree with Anna that Clara Anne's hair is beautiful!

I just love those pictures. Clara Ann DOES look so grown up. So much personality in Christin's face. Precious.

It's been a while since I've stopped by. Good to catch up with the Winds! The other day Robert and I talked about you guys and how you were doing. :) And tonight after choir practice, we took Brad Mann and Nancy Williams both home, and Brad kept doing different voices and making Nancy guess who they were. It was hilarious. He did you, of course (imagine high pitched voice) "Hi, Nancy, how are you doing?"

Nancy cracks up "HEE HEEE hee! That's Rachel Wind".

It was great. So you can see we are thinking about you. :)
