Photo Friday 2012 ~ 15 ~

The theme this week was sacrifice.  And really, there is no greater sacrifice than Jesus dying for my sins on the cross.  So it's appropriate that my photos this week are from Easter Sunday.  I haven't picked up my camera since then because I have been swamped, and it's only gonna get worse since we are leaving for Florida soon and I am starting that part time temp job I did last year again next week.  I will be in dire need of a vacation by the time it gets here!  Back to this week's photos...they are really just your traditional Easter portraits that I try to get every year while we are busy getting ready for church and dinner and the kids are hyped up on sugar so it's a challenge.  I don't want you to think that getting these is easy though...I was tempted to post all the outtakes because my kids were being ridiculous...but I opted to just show my favorites this time.  I think I need to do a post of just outtakes soon though.  I have a ton.

My sweet boy.  This was taken before the drama of the day, which was when he crashed his bike at full speed into a wood pile.  Apparently they were racing and he was going so fast and he veered off into the neighbors yard which is a huge hill and he thought it was awesome and was saying, "weee!" until he couldn't stop and crashed into the wood pile.  At least that's the most accurate version that we could piece together from the different accounts from the kids.  He had quite the scrape and bruise on his face, but I'm happy to say that today it is looking considerably better.  

I like how he is putting his arm around her instead of vice-versa.  I've been noticing a lot lately how much he just automatically does things the way a man would.  It's too cute.

My girl.  I loved her dress this year.  I didn't have time to curl her hair like I wanted so we went with the trusty side bun.  I still think it's cute though.

My mom took this picture of the four of us for me.  I not doing my 4 People 12 Times project this year so this is the first photo of us all together that we have had taken all year!  I need to get better about that.  But I love this!

I'm posting this for my mom who has been asking me daily if I can send her a picture of all her grandkids.  This is the best I got...I think it's pretty good, especially compared to last year's!

I hope you have a great weekend!  Check out more "sacrifice" photos at the link below.
