i wish i could speak chinese, because i bet this cute little grandma would have a lot to tell me.
i think i do everything that i tell parents not to do when i take pictures of my own kids. in the end, we're all happy and eating ice cream and grandma will have her pictures for christmas. i tell them that one day when they have kids of their own, they will understand.
this is my best friend from high school and her darling family! i wish that i had a pictures of us in our cheerleading skirts together to share. actually, it's better that i don't then i don't have to see how old i've gotten. her little boy loves trains and so what better place to take pictures than by the train station. it was so cute, at the very end a train came by with santa claus on board and stopped and waved to us. i love the picture at the end with him and his train pamphlet and the amazement on his face as the train passed by.
in between the family photo shoots, i took pictures of my darling niece. i did not look like this when i was a teenager. where's all the acne and awkwardness? we're going to have to keep this girl locked up until she's at least 25, maybe 30.
