Good Things come in Threes

Aren't these three adorable?
I love scrapbooking and in an effort to make sure Kathryn does not get overlooked I take her to our closest Superstore once a month and get her picture taken. Usually it's just her and we get the one pose package. This month was also Isabella's third birthday and since there is not a two pose package we thought a sister shot would be the best way to complete our photoganza.
The day went just like any other day a mother plans to the tee- completely awry. These pictures don't show it but let me assure you there were boogs, tonnes and tonnes of boogs. Plus we arrived almost 20 minutes late much to the chagrin of the employees.
My uber fave photographer- whose name I do not even know- was there to take the pictures. I told her we were aiming for one of the eldest, one of the youngest and time/behaviour permitting one of the three of them.
Isabella walked in and asked for her close up.
Katy had just been fed and was happy to be prompted anywhere soft.
Wham, bam, thank you ma'am. Five minutes and the majority of the pictures were done.
Then came The Sister Shot. I had tired to think of poses in which Brooklyn could not crawl/roll/slide/Hoodini away from before the click. This is her usual style. We got Isabella set up with Kathryn, Nick behind the photographers, all manner of whistles and wirly gigs out to keep their attention. I gingerly walked to place Brooklyn on the floor. Her toes hit the background.
Then she oozed out of my arms, literally slid right down the front of me, scooched as close as she could to her sisters, plastered this smile on her face and scrunched her shoulders thouroughly pleased with herself.
Ten minutes and three perfect shots later, we could not be more smitten.

It's pictures like this that make me wish I lived nearer to you guys. I miss hanging out with you and Nick, the good ole' days of rock'n'roll jeopardy, I miss being able to play with the girls and hold them. The time I got to spend with you and your family was awesome, and I really hope I can make the trip again in the not terribly distant future. Until I do however, please continue to bless us with pictures of your angels, and maybe try and get the two parents of the 3 most beautiful girls I know in some of them hehe. Love and miss you guys.

Love your posts, Amanda.

I am sooooo glad to see you are back to being well enough, and the girls are all back to being well enough, for you to get on the computer and blog - and take them out to get these beautiful pics taken. I think that Brook may just be getting the hang of the posing thing!

You all take care and we'll talk to you soon.

Love and hugs for each of you.
