Picture Day

We had the opportunity to go up and visit Mr. G's family over the weekend to celebrate Mr. G's birthday and to take pictures for his parent's Christmas card.  It was a gorgeous day....Sunny and about 68 degrees.  We went out to Mr. G's sister's house for pictures because they have a lot of trees in their back yard and it looks beautiful this time of year.  
 One of the perks of going up there is getting to see this lil cutie.  He is Baby G's cousin and is just 2 months older than him.  Right now they don't notice each other too much but someday I have a feeling they will be good friends.
 Before pictures Baby G got down on the floor with his grandma and played with lots of toys.
 Then his big cousin joined him.
 At this point these kids had no idea just how many pictures they were going to have to pose for.

 Once we got outside they wanted to take pictures of the lil boys so me and Mr. G's sister held them while everyone took pictures.
 Then we took some with the grandchildren and grandparents.  I actually heard Baby G's grandma say that this was the best day of her life.  She loves these lil boys to pieces.
 Baby G had started getting fussy from all the pictures so he cuddled up with his daddy, grabbed his pacifier, and felt much better.
 He almost looks like he could just take off running at any point.
 But we have to hold him back..... After the pictures outside we came back in and put the lil boys in their Halloween costumes.
 From the beginning Baby G's cousin kept wanting to take off Baby G's socks.  He was fascinated with them.
 Baby G kept looking at us with a look of...."Help me."
 But no matter how hard we tried...
 He kept pulling off the socks.

 So we decided to just take the socks off.
 Getting them both to smile and look at the camera at the same time was virtually impossible.
 But they sure were cute.
 Hey...This picture turned out pretty good.
 Then Baby G started getting tired.  Good thing he had his cousin to lean on.

At that point my sweet punkin was tired of pictures and just wanted a rest.  So we did just that.  It was a fun day and I think we ended up with a lot of cute pictures.  And to top it all off the Cardinals won 14-6 in the World Series.
