Family Pictures and Surprise Beach Vacay

Two VERY fun events in the Slaughter House...

The first...

We had our family pictures taken yesterday. I was VERY nervous about this monumental undertaking. For one, I despise how I look in pictures. If there existed a contest for the MOST NON-PHOTOGENIC PERSON ON THE PLANET, I would win. Hands down. And if you are one of those people who like to LIE to someone's face and tell me that this could not possibly be true, please refer to any HHS yearbook between the years of 1986-1993. Preferably 1993. Once you recover, you will argue no more. And for two, I have three kids--all of whom I wanted in a picture. Pretty much impossible, right? That being said, Melissa McCrotty is a miracle worker. I have known Melissa since forever. Her dad was my basketball coach back in the day. I LOVE that man. And her family is just precious precious precious. She undertook the task that is the Slaughter family yesterday at her home in Russellville, and from what I've seen so far, the results are just awesome. Click here for a sneak peek at our shoot on her blog. I'll post the rest soon I hope.

And secondly...

Matt surprised me today by booking us for 5 nights on the beach! Words cannot express how excited I am. My girls were so disappointed that we weren't going this year, and now, they are on cloud nine. (What is could nine, exactly? Hmmm? May have to look that up.) Anyway... here is a funny, outtake beach picture from last year. Ahhh the adventures of trying to get a family beach shot. I think this year, thanks to Melissa, we may forego that endeavor altogether!

#1 - those pictures are amazing! Just amazing!! I love every one of them.

#2 - I don't know what you are smoking, but people like you make me feel the need to slap sense into you when you say stupid stuff like "Oh, I'm not photogenic..." Did you LOOK at those pictures, Ang? I mean, come ON!!! You are absolutely beautiful, pictures or not.

#3 - I'm with Sara - totally jealous.

Those pictures are awesome!

And you might think you are unphotogenic, but I live with "Chandler Bing". Too bad we don't have a Joey to stand-in for our family pictures. Ha!

Lyndsey, Melissa is a photographer in Russellville. We took them at her home and also at a peach orchard just a few miles from her house. She is awesome!

Marti, you are too sweet. Also a fibber, but too sweet!!
