Picture day...

Today is school picture day!! yes, folks it's that time again for over priced pictures of my kids!!! Can I get a "Whooo!"

here's what the kids decided to wear (OK, I confess...Jay and I decided)
We've only bought school photos once or twice....they are seriously over-priced--like (1) 8x10, (2) 5x7 and (8) wallets for like 42 bucks! I prefer to take them to Portrait Innovations where I get too many to hand out for 100 bucks. LOL...I know I'm saving soooooooo much money that way, huh!? At least I feel like I'm getting a better value (and I am!)

Then there's lil miss Jillian...she's all preppy today in a skirt I made her the other day. I wish I had more of this fabric, I LOVE IT! It's actually flannel--but the color scheme is just right up my alley..I love it!! I wish I had time to make a peasant top to go with it, even a vest over the top would have been cute too....but this will work for now. I'm on the look out for more plaid fabrics now though cuz I love the look of this little skirt, my mind is whirling with ideas and grand dreams of sending her off to Kinder next year with a whole wardrobe made from me....won't happen I know but man to be that good!!! *SIGH*
Here are 3 out of 4 of my crazy kids...taken this morning at 7:30 am!
(that early and they're all smiling...pretty proud of myself right about now!)

I hear ya! I won't buy school pictures anymore either.

I take my kids out and do a photo shoot with them and they love it. It's free and I get much better shots.

Adorable kiddos you've got!
