Real photos!

Here are some "REAL" photos of our boys that were taken back in November by our dear friend and photographer, Chris Jenkins. He and his son met up with us one afternoon while we were home during Thanksgiving and Chris got these wonderful photos of our boys. Chris is a dear friend of ours and we have a TON of his photography work around our house. Please be sure to check out his blog page when you have a chance to see some of his other work.

Chris, we can't thank you enough for these great photos! You were a champ to put up with us on this day. I had been up since 3am shopping and our sweet boys were WAY past their normal lunch time. It's hard enough to get picture of our triplets on a "normal" day, but Chris went above and beyond our expectations when he was able to capture these!

This is Chris' son, assistant, and our friend!





This one is my favorite! The boys are standing in front of a glass door and Chris was on the outside taking this photo. P's face is smooshed against the glass - just adorable!
