    Debi – Seeing all of you together brought tears to my eyes. You are the most beautiful family, inside and out. The pictures really capture the joy. So happy you got all your kids for the holidays.

    Very nice photos!

    I like the concept of the parents in the background and kids out front. I haven’t seen that before.

    I really like the ones on the rail road tracks! Very uniform in style but I also like the variations with kids only, then whole family, etc 🙂 Nice work!

    I like number 8/11. And I also like the one with the offspring in the front and the parental units behind. Unique view. Good job Mandi.

    They are all great pics, but I love the one on the tracks!! My crew sat in the middle of the road 3 years ago! The kids out front is special. I’ve never seen that done. : ) Thanks for sharing!
