Our REAL Christmas card pics….

I LOVE our photographer, who also happens to be my bestie!!!  (I feel like I’m 12 saying that!) Dana is a FABULOUS, super talented photographer!!!!  We met at Cheatea Elan for a quick 30 minute shoot before church to get some Christmas card pictures.  (I really was going to send out the other one, but my mom asked me not to embarrass her.)

Big Jon, my sweet, precious, handsome husband, was NOT thrilled about taking pictures. He “didn’t have anything to wear” and must have told me about a million times that “we take more pictures than anyone on the planet!” I kept smiling and lovingly reminding him (as he complained the whole way there) that some day our children will LOVE all these photos of their mom & dad! I think that softened his heart a little.
He finally loosened up when as we got there. Dana always puts us at ease and laughs a lot with us as Jon cops a feel and makes super goofy faces. Still, she manages to capture some great moments for us.  We love her!

Now, here are the Butler’s Christmas card pictures for 2011! Enjoy!!

Get a room! No, of course I'm kidding. I LOVE all your pics, makes me even more bummed I haven't gotten ours done this year. :/ Thanks for your comment, I love the name Jax too...I had to trick his dad into thinking that one was his idea (he got to pick the boy names...or so he thinks). ;)
