Sorry it’s taken me so long to comment, Heidi! I did look at these when you posted them but it’s hard to get two hands free to type these days:) Anyhow – I love the new family pics! You guys are a stunning group. My favorite is the one of you laughing with Sir Snuggles “kissing” your cheek! You guys are adorable!
