Chloe, Owen, and Macy's Photo Albums

Okay. So, I've finally organized all of the photos into albums. The most recent photo albums are at the top of the page, and each album contains anywhere from 7 to 40 photos. If you don't like the "album" organization, you can click here to see all of the photos (currently 1452 of them) on a single page. But there are so many photos that this can be kind of cumbersome.
