My true children..

While Aunt Laura was here I tried to take my kids pictures for family and holiday cards thinking an extra set of hands would be helpful. Um, yea right. After an hour of the kids screaming, fighting and eventually knocking down the back drop, Laura and I just rolled our eyes and quit. So as I was scrolling through the pictures and deleting them all, I came across this one.
This picture captures each of my kids true personalities.
No fake 'we are all happy cause we are taking pictures' smiles,
just their true selves.
I am going to try one more time to get the great fake smile picture next week.
Wish me luck.

I think you should send this one out for the card. Then maybe when the kids see it they will cooperate better next year :)

Laura said...

I think your friend Pam might be right! ha ha ha!

I totally think you should. If you notice my past christmas cards I always have the one picture they are being "Themselves". Why said a fake picture when you have the real thing. LOVE IT!

We put so much pressure on ourselves and these sweet kids to present an image of control and decorum with these photo sessions don't we?
I love seeing all of your kids presenting their TRUE selves. That pic is priceless and a treasure :)
