While looking back through my archives I could have swore that I had put up 2 pictures of Emily, taken around the 4th of july sometime last year, but after looking for them I couldn't find them. I guess that means since I only have 3 that I will put them up for everyone to see and compare.
I was told by a wise relative (I can't really remember which one it was, SORRY) that since I had conveniently taken 2 pictures of Emily in the exact same place around the same time of year that I would make a habit of it and do it ever year. It seems the 4th of July is easy enough for me to remember and we are usually on the in-law's front yard for it, so it works perfect.
I remember about this time last year thinking the exact same thing that I did last year: How is it that when I took the first picture I know for sure that Emily was a beautiful as she would ever get! I mean...how in the world was it possible for her to get any prettier. Then I took last years picture and I looked back at the first year and thought...WOW...and I thought she was beautiful then. Well it's year three and I'm standing in awe again!! I may be bias but you be the judge:

June 30th, 2007: You could not have paid me enough money to take a picture of myself. I was about ready to pop...however a clever wedding photographer happened to catch me standing profile...thanks whoever you are.
