The Happy Quilting Family

Some time in January of this year I was sitting in the living room and realized our family picture did not include our adorable baby girl.   I started calculating and figured it had been over 4 years since we had done family pictures.  Ooops.  So when the weather warmed up, we all put on our smiling faces (and yes, a few of them were bribed)  and snapped away a lovely afternoon.  It then took me 4 months to pick my favorites.  Seriously, there were so many great shots, every time I went through them I just got overwhelmed and set them aside.   But, I finally choose my favorites  . . . and since I am putting them on my wall today I thought it would be fun to share them with you as well :)

The Corry Family



Jocelyn - Almost 3



Kamryn - Age 5



Kristian - Age 7



Jessica - Age 9



Spencer - Age 11



Mom and Dad


Nothing like getting new pictures to remind you just how fast they are growing up.   Seriously, I got a little emotional when the pictures were being taken, it just really hit me that time is flying by.  It was a good reminder to cherish every moment, the ups, the downs, and the everydays.  I love you sweet family of mine ;)

And just in case you are wondering, these wonderful pictures were taken on the campus of beautiful Southern Utah University by Kurtis L Leany of Zion Photography.  Thanks Kurtis, we love them!!!

  4. Beautiful pictures. :-)

    Our pictures are on Saturday. They were scheduled last summer, but my kids got sick the day before. I'm okay with that because our baby is 16 months instead of 4 months, so that'll be better. I'm extra excited because our photographer is an online friend I met almost 8 years ago. We'll finally be able to meet in person.
