spring pics

around this time every year, we have always gone to the botanical gardens so that daddy can take pics of the mabster in her easter/spring dress. well this year was no different, other than the fact that now sweet little lyla is here with us too. so nan made the girls matching spring dresses, and as soon as i saw them, i knew that those were the ones that they would wear at their photo shoot. nan also made the skirt and matching scarf that i am wearing in our family pic. i love the pattern of it. it has a vintagy-country look to it.i love our family pic minus the old lady that you can see behind us. LOL. jay said he will photoshop her out, but i'm too impatient to wait on it so i went ahead and uploaded it.abby and lyla were so sweet. they really enjoyed being out in the beautiful weather, and it was a lot of fun to watch abby dance around and twirl her dress. lyla was in heaven and all smiles.overall, it was hard, but funny while trying to get both of them to look at the camera at the same time. i'm not even sure if we have one where both of them are looking, but i have learned that the candid shots are the sweetest. so thanks nan for always making new, cute, handmade outfits for both me and the girls. i love that i never have to ask because you know me well enough to make it a surprise. also, thank you, hubster for always taking the time out of your day to take the girls pics for me. ya'lls work is beautiful, and i love you both.
