Our Family

I'm really bad at following through with some things-- getting family pictures taken is one of those things.  Sure I take lots of pics of the kids on instagram, but getting photos of all of us-- all dressed up and (somewhat) smiling-- that almost never happens.  But since Sawyer's joined our family I figured it was time.  I wanted some good pictures of the whole family that capture our kids at this stage of life-- those crazy, chaotic, fun, energetic moments when you've got a bunch of littles running around.  And... success!!!

Thankfully, I have an amazingly talented, beautiful, friend who takes such incredible photos.  Andrianne totally captured the personalities of my kids in these photos.  You are gifted my friend!  If you could only see the chaos that went down that afternoon trying to keep the kids happy and looking/smiling at the camera.  It was epic-- Sawyer was crying most of the time, Caleb couldn't help but be cheesy, and Eme (believe it or not) was so grumpy.  And yet Andrianne managed to pull it off-- she captured the kind of pictures I love-- the candid, fun, family pictures that offer a glimpse into our life with kids!  I love them!

And since there are SO many pictures that I love-- I can't choose just a few to post-- I've got to post a LOT... and on facebook and on instagram... prepare to be overloaded with pictures!

And there they are!  Now I have the impossible task of choosing just a few print and put up in our house!  The gallery wall will be getting an update I think... :)

I love the one with just the kids on the fallen tree. Your older son is holding his little brother. It's such a precious sibling moment and the lighting is gorgeous.

In this fashion my colleague Wesley Virgin's story launches in this shocking and controversial video.

As a matter of fact, Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he discovered hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to get anything they want.

THESE are the exact same tactics many celebrities (notably those who "come out of nothing") and elite business people used to become wealthy and successful.

You probably know how you utilize only 10% of your brain.

Really, that's because the majority of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

Maybe that conversation has even taken place IN YOUR own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind seven years back, while riding an unlicensed, beat-up garbage bucket of a car without a license and $3 on his bank card.

"I'm so fed up with living check to check! When will I finally make it?"

You've taken part in those types of conversations, ain't it so?

Your own success story is waiting to be written. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.
