Pumpkin Minis!!!

Oh my goodness, friends!  I’m about to make your Monday SO SWEET!



…you cannot tell me that your Monday didn’t improve just a bit, right?!  How adorable is this picture??????!!!!!

Would it be weird if I made this my new profile picture on Facebook?  What if I made it our family’s Christmas card photo this year?  Think anyone will care that it’s minus 5 Shulls and plus a Slaughter?  ADORABLE!!!!!

I just cannot!

Want to know what this is all about?  This…

…this fall, Narci (who always takes my family’s pics!) is doing pumpkin mini sessions!!!  She asked Erika and me if she could use our girlies for a preview, and we were like “heck yeah!”.  The bigs were all in school, so we took the littles and got these amazing shots.  Narci is the BEST!  If you’re anywhere local, make sure you reach out to her to book your mini session before they’re all gone!

I mean…don’t you want pumpkin pictures like this with your family?!?!

Oh wait, hold on!  This right here needs to be my Christmas card photo…

…loooooooooook!  Oh my word!  I will cherish these pictures forever!!  Thank you, Narci!!!

The rest of you, hurry now and book before they’re gone!

    Things are going to get weird when you receive one of these pictures as your Christmas card FROM ME. I cannot get over how adorable these are!!!

  • Narci October 7, 2019 at 5:31 am

    What is really going to be weird is when I use one of those pics for my Christmas card. 🤣🤣 Tnank you for letting me borrow your adorable girl. She’s precious, and we love her so very much!

  • Melissa Meckley October 7, 2019 at 7:38 am

    I love their outfits! I’m really struggling finding cute fall/holiday outfits for my 2.5 year old daughter this year.

    • Mix and Match Mama October 7, 2019 at 9:31 am

      Have you tried Etsy? I find so many cute things on there!!

  • Laci October 7, 2019 at 7:50 am

    The pics really are making this Monday better!

    • Melissa Meckley October 7, 2019 at 11:48 am

      Thanks for the suggestion! I’ve never thought to lol for Kids clothes on Etsy before.

  • Anna October 7, 2019 at 7:50 am

    I think I remember you saying that the girls where size jumbo bows. Is that correct? So Madeley and Kensington both wear the same size? Do each of them have their own bow collection or do they share?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 7, 2019 at 9:30 am

      they wear xl jumbo! My girls all have one big bow collection to pick from 🙂 .

  • Melissa Terry October 7, 2019 at 8:02 am

    These are DARLING!!

  • Marisa Patel October 7, 2019 at 8:06 am

    EXACTLY what I needed this morning! Thank you for sharing and I might just have to contact Narci for some family portraits this year.

  • MelanieL October 7, 2019 at 8:16 am

    SO cute! Everything is better when there’s pumpkins involved! They will love looking at these when they’re older. 🙂

  • Raelynn October 7, 2019 at 8:39 am

    Could you do a post about how you get kids ready for family photos and individual photos. How do you figure out your families outfits? Do you sometimes have to bribe your kids? I am curious because your kids seem so happy to be taking photos!

    • Mix and Match Mama October 7, 2019 at 9:30 am

      Oh gosh, it’s a whole lot of chaotic, but yes, that could be a post topic!!

  • Squad family October 7, 2019 at 8:41 am

    Where is Madeleys outfit from?

    • Mix and Match Mama October 7, 2019 at 9:29 am

      The dress is Boden and the leggings are super old from Etsy!

  • Diana October 7, 2019 at 8:47 am

    Hi shay!
    Ok I know this is a super personal question and it’s ok if you don’t want to answer it. What was the second boys name you picked out. We are expecting twins and we love smiths name. We just were curious to what your boys name was going to be if you had adopted a boy.

    • Mix and Match Mama October 7, 2019 at 9:29 am

      We’ve only picked out one boy’s name. If Kensington had been a boy, then she would have been Smith and then we knew both Ashby and Madeley would be girls, so, we’ve only ever had to come up with one boy name. Congratulations on your twins!!

      • Diana October 7, 2019 at 11:59 am

        Oh ok thanks anyway!

  • Kare October 7, 2019 at 9:09 am

    So adorable and I just love how tall, sure, and proud Madelay is standing. Beautiful, beautiful job mama!

  • Nancie October 7, 2019 at 9:16 am

    OMG….These are so adorable! Wish my kids were still little. The girls sure got me smiling today!

  • Leslie Bembenek October 7, 2019 at 9:19 am

    This just melts my heart! Cuteness and friendship overload!

  • Sandy Blitch October 7, 2019 at 9:38 am

    Those are the sweetest pictures! Look at those precious girls, and their outfits! Dressing girls is SO fun! Madeleine looks so old, not like a toddler anymore. These pictures will be treasured by you and Erika.

    So adorable! The girls look absolutely precious! Great pic, Narci! I loved seeing Britt so happy and smiling! I’ve always thought that Britt is very shy but Madeley looks to be the sweetest friend to her and she looks so at ease and happy with her good buddy.❤️
