This last week we had family pictures taken. Family pictures are always fun and stressful at the same time. Ours was more stressful this year because it rained for most of the day. Well after sitting in the car for almost a half hour the rain slowed down enough for us to take pictures. Here are some of my favorites.

She also thinks it's hilarious to put her jacket on her head and run around.
Mercedes misses her cousins and wishes that she had some nearby. This video was taken when we stopped at the Dallas Trayner's home on our way home from Georgia. This one is for you mom.

Human beings do not live forever, Reuven. We live less than the time it takes to blink an eye, if we measure our lives against eternity. So it may be asked what value is there to a human life. There is so much pain in the world. What does it mean to have to suffer so much if our lives are nothing more than the blink of an eye? I learned a long time ago, Reuven, that a blink of an eye in itself is nothing. But the eye that blinks, that is something. A span of life is nothing. But the man that lives that span, he is something. He can fill that tiny span with meaning, so its quality is immeasurable though its quantity may be insignificant . . . . A man must fill his life with meaning, meaning is not automatically given to life. It is hard work to fill one's life with meaning . . . . A life filled with meaning is worthy of rest.

As you can see we made a Crab on the beach in Mexico
It was really fun!
Here is Josh and Nate with the babies standing in front
of the Mayan ruins.
This is in Mexico and the Giant turtle that was supposed
to be in the picture swam away.
Here is proof that we all made it to the top of the
Mayan temple. The stairs are a lot steeper than they look.
Look how cute Mercedes looks Christmas Morning
with all the presents that Santa brought to the Shaw's.
This is on the beach in Honduras. As you can tell Mercedes
is very tired.
While we were on vacation Mercedes has become quite
the chatter box. She is constantly making noise now. Here she
is caught in the act.
Here we are on the bus going to the beach. as you can see
we were all excited to go!
We also discovered that Mercedes hair is very curly.
Once we got in the humidity it curled right up. This
picture is not the best but it gives you an idea.
This is my cute nephew Clark. He is all dressed
up for our anual Christmas pageant and he is looking
fabulous as a Shepard.
Eean played the part of the sheep while Emery was also a great shephard.
As you can see the twins made great angels!
Here we are standing in front of the big Christmas tree
in the middle of Sea World!
This clip was taken on formal night on the cruise. In the background there was
a crowd of older people that were just watching her. Every time she smiles you can
hear the crowd of Grandmas get all excited. Mercedes does not know
what to do with all the attention!
