Is it crazy that I'm already thinking about our family pictures and Christmas cards...
at the beginning of August?
If you know me, I'm a planner...even more now since I have a baby. My mind races all the time about outfits and colors, outfits and color, outfits and color [yes I meant to type that three times...it's kind of a big deal!] locations, lighting, timing...and how we are going to top last years card and picture...because it was priceless!

[This is proof that you don't need to spend hundreds on a photographer as well. My parents were in town last year, so I asked them if we could attempt some pictures down by the lake. We woke up, got dressed, took about 50 pictures and fifeteen minutes later...done and done, and we got this picture. Now I know this may be a once in a lifetime picture and moment, but it happened! It may not work for everyone, but it worked wonders for us...and while my mom was taking pictures, my dad was amazing at jumping up and down and all around to get Hudson's attention away from the leaves on the trees!]
Oh the endless possibilities this year....
[I have got to get me an awesome old couch!
I'm on a craigslist and dumpster hunt starting...now!]
I figure if I don't plan it out now, it's going to end up in the akward family photos
section on Pinterest...
No thank you.
Please tell me that I'm not the only one who gets excited for Christmas card season!?
