You might remember that I photographed the Nowacki Family not too long ago (see it). Well, Kellie suggested to Carrie, here sister, that they surprise their mom and dad with some pictures for Christmas. So Carrie came up from St. Louis with her family and we planned a session. Then, Kellie & Carrie's parents decided to surprise everyone and come down from Wisconsin (right?) for the weekend. So they joined us! It was cold. And I wore my new boots to try to keep my little feet from freezing. We spent the first part of the session inside because not everyone had fun boots like mine :P.
Oh, and it was the perfect morning to go downtown because I passed Lucas Oil Stadium and saw lots of buses and letter jackets. Paired with the fact that it was late October, I deduced that the State Final Marching Band Competitions were going on. This brought back loads of memories circa 1996 when I was one of those competitors.
Two families...eleven grandkids! I asked them to get in line from shortest to tallest. The two shortest weren't paying attention, though! I was actually really impressed by how well they listened and got the job done. Great job kids!
I love the little guy below with his glasses. How handsome.
This one gets two thumbs up from me. I told them to give a big bear hug and they obeyed. I'm not sure if it was because of cold or LOVE.
Love can survive six children!
