This December was hard on me being so sick pregnant BUT one Sunday evening I realized we were all looking clean and happy and so we threw on some matchy matchy clothes and headed up the street for impromptu family pictures. I was so pleased how well they turned out for such low effort! I didn't even buy a thing for these ...didn't cost me a cent. They aren't as nice as professional pictures but they're not too far off! Here is our card we sent out this year.

Estimated Time of Delivery July 2nd
It was fun to finally announce that we were expecting. I hadn't told anyone except family and it was nice to share because I felt like people must wonder why I was so out of it and such!
