Mother’s Day

Over Christmas break, Merrick, Landen, and I did some tricky things in order to get us all in the same city on the same day (we managed to find a single three hour window). The reason for all the sneakiness was that we wanted to take some pictures of the three of us girls for our mom for Mother’s Days.

Amber graciously agreed to do them and also to keep them secret for the many many months between Dec 26 and today.

I am so thrilled with how these turned out – thank you again SO much, Amber!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom . . . we love you.

    You look really not-twelve in these! Especially the third one. Good job! (I’m sorry, but whenever you post pictures, I can’t help but think whether you look like a grown-up or a teenager in them. You do the same, right?)

    You girls are adorable! Good job keeping that a secret for so long. I’m always so excited about gifts-five months of secrecy would have killed me! I bet your mom LOVED her gift.

    We’re going to take sibling pictures in June. My last picture of my brothers and I together is from 1997. I kid you not.
