Merry Christmas to you guys too! Mile and Howie are adorable as ever! My husband was just arguing with me that they did not fall asleep like that and that Miley did not put his arm around Howie like that! LOL I said yes he did and that just cuz our BT’s don’t sleep together like that doesn’t mean others don’t.

Merry Christmas Amanda. I have a Christmas wish this year for my wonderful Daughter-In-Lay, Katie Emerson Renz. Katie has been diagnosed with gastric cancer, she is 39, wife and mother of three small children. Will & Nate 5 and Hunter 11. She was admitted to the hospital on Christmas eve and will be there until tomorrow. Family in the area and friends helped make their children a wonderful Christmas but with out their mother at home. She is a blogger like you and so many others, please include Katie & her family in your positive thoughts and prayers. The doctors are giving her no cure only treatment for the remainder of her life. Please read her blog. Thank you Elizabet Rhyneer

Merry Christmas to you and your family. I just love the picture of Miley and Howie, we have been trying to figure out how to get our 3 Bostons to lay by the tree and sleep, almost impossible, by the time they are sleeping, we are exhausted! LOL. We will keep trying.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pictures!!! I tried my best to capture one of my son, but he doesn’t pose as well as your boys!!! I went and purchased the 50mm lens just because of these pics you posted last year. I LOVE your photography. I am studying photography myself and am a BIG fan of yours. Hopefully, my next lens purchase will be the 24-70mm. I learn so much from you. Thanks for sharing.
P.S. WAR EAGLE!!!!!!!!!!
