Dare to be different.......

I don't have much to say...


other than....


we are THAT family.




We like to play cards in the snow....

when it's cold.....

without jackets.....

in the elements.....

bring it on.

Except for....






poor baby Fin in the corner...

huddled.

Oh well.....

he got over it.......






No....

really...

on a serious note.

I can be serious you know....

really...i can.

I wanted to have some fun photos of our family.....

actually, i wanted some valentines day photos..

and after all was said and done...

my sweet husband turned to me....

he turned to me and thanked me...

for having fun.

I love that man!

So.......

this is what i have to say to you:

have fun.....

be different....

jump out of the box.....

try something new...

You never know.

You might just end up doing something that you

will remember for the rest of your life.

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

You are too, too cool, Kasey. Family included. p.s. I noticed, no one in your family really looks like you - you're kind of the black sheep, aren't you? :)

That's what life is all about!

Beautiful!

Widge said...

They are such cool pics. if this was our family my kids would all be in tears cos that's what happens when we play games together..I bred some amazingly sore losers

Amy@TheLemonCottage said...

So cool.

My husband thinks (and has thought for some time)that I'm a total lunatic.
I showed him your blog so he would realize that I'm NOT crazy...but now he thinks I have a long lost sister who's just as crazy as I am.

oops.

LOVE the pictures. You are so creative.
~Amy

judy # Watkins said...

Ohhh...so true,,,

Kristina said...

I'm sitting here watching my daughter dance to your music. The first song is not one I would consider dancing to, so you can imagine! Love the pictures - great idea.

Jamie said...

That's so nice that your husband appreciates the fun in you! Love the pictures!

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

How sweet! If I did that, there would probably be no "fun" there would just be a photo that looked like we were having fun... I feel like every time we try to take a family photo, the kids won't cooperate and it always ends up being a drag, rather than a fun capturing of a fun moment! How on earth do you do it? Amazing.

Simone said...

These are just gorgeous Kasey, I love them.

And I LOL at your comment in your post below about Bryan wearing that scarf to bed!!! Am glad he complied with your dress code for the day :) xo

Leah C said...

Love the family photos...so fresh & fun! You truly inspire:)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Of course you did! And I love them!!

c.stone said...

I want that necklace!

Laura said...

I wish we were that family!
Or I wish we could at least PRETEND to be that family...for a picture or two

I feel like killing my entire family today

Laura said...

FYI....

just so you know, I am not REALLY going to kill them....

ya know..should they disappear or something today, I dont want fingers pointing my way...

just sayin....

Lori said...

These are fantastic Kasey ~ can't wait to see more...yeah I am greedy like that.

AshleyR said...

they are fabulous - and I was serious - I do always have roses on the table when we play family cards in the snow. always.

Debra said...

Your children will always remember those times with their parents and they will tell their children about all of the times playing cards with their parents and even in the snow.

Shawn Seay said...

How fun! What a well dressed family! I don't think they will forget that one. Love it!
BLessings,
Shawn
