Yeah, yeah. It's been a while.

Life has been busy at that MacDonald home. Seems like we've had some kind of activity going on every weekend for the last several months! Between activities with GOMOTT, church related things or working on our new house, something has taken up all of our time.

A few weeks ago the boys had a photo shoot with a local photographer who is looking to build her portfolio. Here's a glimpse of some of the proofs...

Close-up of Nicholas


This is one of the last pictures taken that day. Nicholas is just about to burst into tears, and Matthew had a fit when we tried to take his stick away.

I was amazed at how good the boys were through the whole photo shoot. We were outside with them for almost two hours. They had three change of clothes, and had to endure a stroller ride from Park Avenue all the way to the lake at Rollins. Not necessarily a long trip, but when you're 20 months old, it seemed like it too forever!

I think this is my favorite picture ever, save for the first pictures we got of the boys when we received their referral, and the pictures Dan took when we were at the orphanage.

You can go to the photographer's weblog here: This is a link to her blog, where she puts sneak peaks of her sessions for everyone to see. You'll be able to see the pictures above, plus another one if you check out her site. You can also go to her main website here: If you check out that site, you can see the boys in some of her portfolio pages. :-)

Lorie just fell in love with your boys and their photographer. We might have to go to Orlando just to use her services.
