Our Family Picture Day

Remember Picture Day? Back in Elementary School...when your mom would dress you in the weirdest possible outfit and tell you to "smile with your teeth?" Actually, I'm sure it was ME who chose the weirdest possible outfit, but my mom did remind me to smile with my teeth. :)

Well, yesterday - oh, blessed yesterday - was OUR family picture day. I kinda felt all nervous, like "Will I look stupid and fat and will my double chin protrude like the dorsel fin on the Great White?" Okay, okay...It was the only thing I could think of...weird. But, still. I was actually NERVOUS about being photographed. I mean, Hello, I do it with people all the time. And, I always say "Don't be nervous. Just have fun!" So, I took my own advice and I had fun. Although, I didn't realize how much weight I've put on in the last few years (because, I've HARDLY taken a picture of myself since...who knows when) and I just assumed I always looked the same as I did in college, except with a different haircut, I do think these photos turned out marvelously (considered said double chin). Erin did a fabulous job just chillin' out and having a good time. That's my style...and I felt comfortable.

Ok, you're probably sick of the commentary already and want to see a few shots. Enjoy.

These are precious, Sarah. You guys look great. I'm lovin' the baby drool! ;)

Jenn said...

Hey Sarah, I posted on Erin's blog too but just in case you didn't see it, I think these are great. I totally know what you mean about assuming you look the same as you did in college .... I feel the same, so I obviously look the same, right? I wish, ha! A girl can dream ;) Anywho, super-fun pics, you guys are amazing :)

Emily said...

You look gorgeous Sarah! Also, you just had a baby! I put on 40 lbs after school was out, and do I have kids? Nope. So what's my excuse?

I hear ya on the weight gain and pictures. I like to pretend I still look the same as I did in college too. :)

But it hit me last year that one day I'm going to look back and have NO PICTURES of me with my little girl at this precious age because I was so worried about my triple chin and roly-poly belly (which is partly her fault). ;) I realized my present vanity was not worth missing out on memories one day.

And you look amazing, BTW! I barely see a single chin. I don't know what you were going on about when you were talking about double! You have a beautiful family!

You have such a gorgeous family, Sarah! I've missed visiting your blog, but now I'm back from yet another hiatus. So, I will be commenting my heart out. =)

BTW, you just have to stop posting all these yummy recipes and food photos. I always get so hungry when I see those. LOL
