Hailey's Babies

That's what is written on a disc sitting on my desk. It contains pictures that my step-dad, Bret, took of my kids when we were visiting for three weeks in July, except we took all of these pictures about one hour before we went to the airport to go home. Bret was in a horrible work-related accident while we were there, which involved 300 lbs. of something smashing down on his finger. Therefore, he took all of these pictures with his hand in a giant bandage thingie. I'm still not sure how he pulled it off. Here he is in the hospital after surgery on his finger:

His hand kind of looks like the monster in the movie "Tremors." Maybe you shouldn't look at it if stuff like that grosses you out.

As for the pictures, they turned out great. If you live in Massachusetts, you should totally hire him to take pictures of your kids or family! His website has more information about all of that. Me, I get mine for free!

First up, my ray of sunshine:

If I had a nickel for every time I've seen this face, I would have a million nickels.

Next up, the boy child. According to Bret, he changed his face for EVERY shot without being directed. He would just look at his reflection in the camera and change it up. Yes, he is my comedian. Since I have one hundred different pictures of him with different faces to choose from, here are a handful (and a half) of my favorites:

The pictures were taken in my mom's theater, so that explains some wardrobe choices.

A few of them together. Bret said they were pushing each other, trying to be camera hogs:

And one with their 9-year old uncle Aydan, my youngest brother:

As for the twins, they weren't crazy about sitting for their pictures, so we kept feeding them apple crisps and cookies. But we still got a few keepers:



Lane gabbing about something? Weird.

And for my next blog post, I'm actually going to write something. It's a crazy idea, but I think it just might work!
