Guess what?

Well, friends, I am SO excited to share with you our most recent (as if we do them often) family photos, taken by the amazing Heba Salama.
Heba is Noah's cousin's wife.
Yeah, that sounds distant.
It's not as much as it sounds.

At a recent family get together(as if we do them often)
while I chowed on her husband, Ed's , amazing fried chicken (don't tell Jillian Michaels he makes this amazing fried chicken. They were finalists on "The Biggest Loser" a few seasons ago and have done amazing with their health;)
And just to be clear, I don't think they ate it.
I could do another post entirely just about the fried chicken!
But I won't.
Yet wasn't it kind of them not to bring carrot sticks to the family get together?!
They really went all out to bless us with that fried chicken...
I'm doing it again.
Moving on from the fried chicken.

In between mouthfuls of the "you know what" we started talking about our families need for an updated family photo to use as we embark on raising our support to do work in Haiti.
Heba generously offered to bless us with a family photo shoot.
And I responded similarly to this offer as I did to the remarkable chicken.
I gobbled it up!

We had a blast getting to spend time with Ed and Heba because even though we're family and we only live an hour away from each other, it can seem like an ocean with our busy lives.

But that is all about MY good news.
Now for YOUR good news(and a little bit of mine still).

Heba Salama Photography wants to offer to help us raise money for our adoption, too!!!!!
For anyone who is referred by us to Heba, she is offering this SWEET deal...
She will do your photos for the regular session price of $150, BUT
she'll give $50 of that back to our adoption!!
On top of that you will get a $50 print credit to use to purchase prints from the shoot, along with a free 8x10!

And as you can see,
she is going to give you photos to remember.

So if you think it's time to get some photos taken AND
you'd like to help us adopt,
head on over to Heba's site
and email her, mentioning our family.
She's wonderful to work with and I know you'll love everything about your time with her.

And Heba, again,

Especially for taking a picture of me leap frogging over my husband's head.
I feel this really captures our marriage.
Know what I mean?
Yeah, me neither.
But I LOVE this picture.
And you.
