family pictures turned ugly






Yesterday we learned a very important lesson for our family: Do not try to take photographs of the family by yourselves. Ugh. It was seriously the most stressful outing and we have nothing to show for it! hahaha At one point I'm shouting at Benson to quit hitting his brother and Banks quit climbing on that and Ben I quit I'm not doing this anymore and I look up to see a bunch of teenagers laughing at me from across the square. sigh. At least maybe it will keep them from wanting kids too early (as is the epidemic these days). None of the pictures turned out well, but a few did have us all looking at the camera at the same time, which is apparently all we could have hoped for. Anyway I figured since I hadn't blogged in a few days I should post something.

haha, I had to delete both my comments because they had typos that totally made no sense. That's what I get for trying to blog when Ethan's pulling on my leg.

What I wanted to say was that I think you're pictures aren't half bad! You look beautiful and you're boys are adorable. If you want bad, just wait until we all try and get our group shot, that will be a disaster. . .

oh well, at least you look pretty, right?

Banks looks like such a little man with his haircut! I think the ones you posted turned out beautiful!

That's funny about the teenagers. I think they just think we're old farts. Actually, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what they think. Tonight a teenager told me I was old to him. Ha! I feel like a teenager still :)

i agree - you look very pretty in spite of it all :)

and what handsome red sweaters the boys are wearing!

taking your own picture has resulted in nothing but disappointment for us as well... i can sympathize.

I think they look great! You look really pretty and Ben looks like a stud in the one where you're standing and holding the boys. I would take any of those for my wall...wink wink! :)
