A few weeks ago my friend Jon Ed came over to my Mama’s house to take pictures of the babes. Cass was in a foul mood and was in serious need of a nap. He still managed to get several good pictures of her, and there were many wonderful pictures of Caleb as well. Although, half way through the photo shoot I heard Sam (my sister-in-law and Caleb’s mother) say, “Why don’t we just tell him to ‘smile pretty’? I don’t think we need to tell him to ‘smile big” anymore.” So just let your imagination run wild with what “smile big” must mean to a two year old. Caleb did.
That was the best picture of the two of them together. That’s my Daddy dressed up like Santa, so I’m sure that picture will be a precious keepsake for the two of them as they get older. Although Caleb may have figured something was up because he called Santa “Papa” a few times. Sam pointed out that it didn’t help that my mother kept yelling “Bill!” when she’s need to get Santa’s attention.
Good times in the Hogue house. Also known as “Hogue Manner: Where Daycare meets Nursing Home and We All Wear Diapers.”
And I hope I don’t spoil anything but I got my Mom a big sign to hang over her front door with that engraved on it. The print is big so that the elderly may be able to read it from the street and avoid any confusion.
This is my favorite photo from the bunch.
ISN’T THAT PRECIOUS?
That’s the same face that made me fall for her father!
Jon Ed was great with the kids, and bonus, he travels. So if you need a great photographer that won’t cost you and arm and a leg and second mortgage then call this guy. Well worth it!
